RAKTDA announces ‘Shortcation’ offer for UAE residents


Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) is inviting UAE residents to enjoy the emirate’s stunning beaches, stellar hospitality portfolio, thrilling adventure attractions and authentic cultural experiences this summer, for the ultimate ‘Shortcation’.

RAKTDA and its hospitality partners have collaborated to create a special summer package, whereby guests staying for three or more nights at any of Ras Al Khaimah’s participating four- and five-star hotels can take advantage of a series of value-added benefits, available until August 31, 2020.

The ‘Shortcation’ offer includes two complementary activity passes to either the Suwaidi Pearl Farm or any of the bucket list adventure experiences on Jebel Jais; the ‘Kids Go Free’ perk, which allows two children aged 12 and under to stay and dine at no additional cost; and the Grand Summer Raffle, whereby guests spending three or more nights in participating hotels in Ras Al Khaimah will be automatically entered into a weekly raffle hosted by RAKTDA to win a number of prizes, including a brand-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2020 automobile, courtesy of Gargash Enterprises.


Those wishing to make the most of the ‘Shortcation’ offer can choose from a variety of accommodation options, ranging from ultra-luxurious beach resorts to family-friendly city and seaside resorts and properties offering stunning private villa accommodation.

Eager to put visitors’ minds at ease, RAKTDA is working with all hotel partners to ensure they are strictly adhering to all government and public health guidelines and complying with all social distancing advisories so guests enjoying their ‘shortcation’ can do so with peace of mind.
