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.

Excellent stay, relaxing and friendly. Food was very nice, breakfast lunch and dinner. We stayed in the premium room, very spacious and modern and super clean. Pool is fantastic at 80m in length and beach was very different to others in the UAE. Our new favourite place in the UAE. Highly recommended

One of the most wonderful resorts in the UAE. The sunset from the balcony is beautiful and the singing of the birds especially in the morning makes you feel in the wilderness. The Oberoi staff are very professional and friendly, the food is exquisite , the hotel is very clean. We will definitely be back

The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zorah is a unique and stunning property. It is truly a hidden gem. We loved our room with a view. Everything about the resort was excellent, I only wish there were more dining options. This property must be in everyone’s must-stay list.

Going to The Oberoi Resort, Al Zorah, we did not read the hotel reviews in advance, leaving any doubts behind. But imagine our surprise when we ended up at the hotel. The impeccable interior of all areas and rooms, the tireless smile of the staff and the high level of unobtrusive service did their job. There is nothing to comment with regret. The excellent service and incredibly tasty cuisine of the Vinesse Restaurant turned our dinner into an unforgettable evening that we still remember today. Located separately on site the Library is a great place to spend time after dinner chatting over tea or playing games. The atmosphere in the pool area creates a feeling of calm and tranquillity which are priceless. We will certainly be back soon. Sincere compliments to the hotel team for their great job. Read less
