My recent staycation was at Bin Majid Acacia Hotel , one of the properties of Bin Majid Hotels & Resorts.
After having an ultimate stay experience at their location at Bin Majid Mangrove, this short & sweet stay at Bin Majid Acacia Hotel was also a memorable one!

Hotel provides all basic facilities, although our room was not very spacious but quite comfortable stay, with the best hotel service, strong wifi, pool, and above all the restaurants & café here serve great meals & coffee.
Another great attraction for booking your stay with Bin Majid Acacia are the promotions which are on offer for guests which include various packages, one of those deals include Rak Road Trip, in addition to this, you can have so much more if you keep an eye on their website.
The biggest attractions in the package includes beach & bar access at Bin Majid Resorts which is situated at 5 minutes drive from Bin Majid Acacia hotel.
Room: Our standard room & bath were quite comfortable. There was a two seater sofa & a fitted LCD screen at the entrance, with a provision of another LCD inside bedroom as well. Mini fridge/bar, locker & strong wifi. Our room had a pool view. Service is very good, immediate staff is there at your service. We were welcomed by fresh fruits in our room.
