Located in the northernmost part of the country is Ras Al Khaimah, which literally translates to “top of the tent” in Arabic. It is the fourth-largest among the seven emirates of the UAE, bordered by Oman in the north, Fujairah in the east, and Umm Al Quwain in the south. The emirate, often referred to as “RAK,” is famous for its diverse landscape, which includes gorgeous beaches, rugged mountains, and fertile plains.

Cove Rotana Resort Review in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah
We were glad to have found a great deal online and we were able to check in this resort for a nice staycation. Cove Rotana is quite huge! You would need a buggy to get to the beach area and back to your room (if you checked in one of their standard rooms). The staff has buggies available and you simply need to call the staff ahead of time.
