The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zorah
Tucked away on a soft white sand beach studded with seashells, this ultra-modern resort is a destination in itself. It’s a newer addition to Ajman’s collection of hotels, and the clear choice for international high-spec design and sublime Oberoi levels of service. Each room and villa comes with 24-hour butler service and complimentary activities to enhance your beach escape.
Begin your day with a yoga session on the pavilion, in keeping with the zen vibes that radiate from the clean lines and water features around the resort. Dining is healthy and delicious; choose from an à la carte menu for made-to-order breakfast dishes at Vinesse Restaurant. There’s also a chef’s table option for an intimate dining experience accompanied by the resident Oberoi masterchef. For lighter bites during the day, the Poolside Lounge by the 85-metre focal infinity pool is your go-to for healthy small plates. Facilities include the outstanding Oberoi Spa, where you can relax in one of the traditional Arabic hammams or have a few laps on the jogging track. Best of all, its location within 247 acres of protected grounds means you can explore Ajman’s surprisingly vast mangrove territory on a cruise or kayaking tour.
True to form for an Oberoi property, the rooms and villas here easily rival ones you find at well-established beach resorts around the world. Each room has 24-hour butler service and floor-to-ceiling doors and windows, so you’ll get beautiful views from inside as well as from the spacious private terrace or balcony. Premier Rooms with Private Terrace are generously sized with a large terrace. Deluxe Suites with Private Terrace have views of the mangroves, golf course and the sea. Premier Suites with Private Terrace have a separate living area and stunning en suite with a skylight. The most opulent is the Kohinoor Suite with Private Terrace, which has two bedrooms and uninterrupted sea views. There are one- to three-bedroom Premium Villas with Private Pool that are great for entertaining and have direct beach access.
