The Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah

Ajman, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

Something of a statement, The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zorah is both a chic holiday hideaway, and a sculptural landmark worthy of a Turner prize. Reclining along a postcard-perfect sweep of white sand in Al Zorah (a one million square metre patch of protected forest in Ajman), this retreat is as contemporary as they come, with its crisp wooden pool deck, geometric take on Middle Eastern fretwork, and oversized walls of windows taking in sumptuous sea views. It’s not just contemporary in style though, with its luxury villas featuring private pools and space to socialise, its Oberoi Spa rivalling any urban health retreat, the straight lines of its 85 metre pool designed to be seductively sleek, and its dining venues ticking off all those modern favourites, like tapas, bento boxes, sushi, cocktails, responsibly sourced seafood, and gourmet gastronomy.

We just completed our first stay at The Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah and can’t recommend highly enough. If you enjoy low key luxury, this is the place for you. The rooms and public areas are stylish. The restaurants have range to delight the palate. A spectrum of wines and spirits or non-alcoholic beverages are there to pleasure whatever your choice. And, more than anything, we have high compliment for the staff. Professional but also with a warmth that excludes, which makes for the experience. We will return as soon as we can, and hope others will read our review and feel prompted to make arrangements and stay. It is really special! Read less

We had a little misunderstanding at first with the hotel due to the covid19 context and I have to say that we were really impressed by the reactivity, the professionalism and the kindness of the hotel management. The lunch at Vinesse restaurant was excellent. I recommend this hotel if you look for some beautiful and peaceful environment in Ajman. My regards to Ms Divya, Ms Sunita and Mr Antonino. Read less

Beautiful resort, modern and understated. The gardens, beach, pool are all immaculate. Service is outstanding and the staff are attentive and discreet. The food is excellent, if I have one moan it is that breakfast is only included in the restaurant and not on room service - at this standard of hotel it really should be. The New Years Eve dinner… Read more

The New Years Eve dinner and party on the beach was amazing, the hotel and staff put a huge amount of effort into creating a fabulous event. Read less

I rarely write reviews but am compelled to do so on this occasion. My recent stay with the Oberoi Al Zorah was par excellence. I am lucky to have travelled around the world but few places come close to my recent experience. Deep attention to detail, real pampering, fantastic facilities that catered to every need, super staff made this stay perfect. I need to especially call out Gautam in the Dining Guest Services and Deva, one of the chefs. They looked after every meal request and concocted some of the best Indian vegetarian and sea food dishes I have had in a long tome. Senior management should make a note of their exemplary guest service skills!! Don’t think twice before booking a stay if you just want to be totally looked after with heartfelt care. Thank you team.
