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 were looking for a special place to stay and celebrate our lil one's milestone of turning all of 2 and being Dubai residents decided on The Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah. The Oberoi Hotels is synonymous with superlative service standards and the finest hospitality there is - The Oberoi Al Zorah delivered on all those expectations and more.  First and foremost, is the ease of reaching the Resort. A comfortable 45 min drive from our Residence (Its even closer from the Dubai airport, 25 odd min) and once there, you are transported into an idyllic setting, pristine and very calming. The accommodation is extremely spacious across the property and they have left no stone unturned to ensure that all you require to is catered for. We put them to the test - having forgotten our apple cable charger at home and as all our devices are apple, would have left us in a puddle...but one phone call to front desk and within minutes they showed up with the cable, which was provided for our use for the rest of our stay! Or when we were at the most unbelievable pool - beautifully laid out at 85 mts (an Olympic size is 50 mts so pls go figure!) and my Daughter who has taken a fancy for diving, wanted a pool toy she could plunge into the pool and retrieve - Deepak (at the pool) came along and provided her with just that and made her day! Goes to show, how everything is thought through - they genuinely care about providing their guests with the most special time. Kids cutlery shows up during mealtimes (a very simple element, but having traveled extensively, I could count the number of hotels who do that on my fingertips).  The kids area was a huge hit with my elder Daughter - Mariel and Shalini were absolutely delightful and engaging the entire time. The facility is well laid out with plenty of activity to keep the little toys merrily busy for hours on end. Something has to be said about the orientation of the Resort as despite being mid May, we spent all afternoon outdoors with sea breeze brushing our faces cool....the beach is broad, lovely sand and just the kind to spend the day on. The highlight, undoubtedly was the team - Shashank, Shruti, Royston, Oksana and Mayan in F&B - Vinod and the house keeping team that decorated our room to a kid's delight on the birthday and the senior most management, Antonino, the GM with whom we had the most engaging conversations, the Resort is centered around an enthusiastic bunch of Hoteliers who enjoy what they do and in turn provide you with an experience that we cannot wait to repeat so I'm heading off to plan my next stay at this contemporary jewel already!

Sigh!! With so much to explore in the world, it is very rare that when one stays at a hotel or resort, there is a strong desire to stay there forever or to go back as soon as possible.

Sigh!! With so much to explore in the world, it is very rare that when one stays at a hotel or resort, there is a strong desire to stay there forever or to go back as soon as possible. Our stay at The Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah was so magical that it seems surreal. We stayed in a Two-Bedroom Villa that ticks more boxes than you can imagine. Fantastic Layout, Superb Furnishings, Latest Tech, Fabulous private pool, Easy Beach Access, Mind-Boggling Sunset & Sea views, Luxurious amenities, Intriguing Art, Graphical Wall in the Bathroom & Living room(detailing on the Italian tiles is unbelievable), Large Size Patio, Temperature controlled private pool bigger than most residential pools in Dubai, Outdoor yet private Shower with patio access when coming back from the beach leading to full bathroom, a deep-soaking free standing giant size Bath-Tub, dual vanity sinks, a powerful rain-shower and so on!. Each room has its own IPAD with lighting, AC, curtain and TV controls. On the TVs one can play their favourite songs from YouTube which is accessible through this device and the surprise bonus is streaming of Netflix from your own account. Just log-in to your own private Netflix account through the IPAD and stream your favourite show or movie on the large size TVs in the living room or bedrooms. Wifi is so strong and efficient that streaming is no problem at all. About the resort, if you love nature, the sound of Birds Chirping, Blooming flowers, Lush landscape, array of wonderful trees will amaze you. Add to it a unique long stretch of the resort pool, a superbly planned and run Children's activity room managed by the affable & efficient Mariel (hope got the name right) that boasts of X-Box with large screens, Carrom-Board, Dart Board, mini-pool (outdoor), mini-sand pit (outdoor), plethora of board games, puzzles and toys for infants and it just continues. Joel, at the concierge helping us with golf-carts, bags and other requests was so genuinely proud and happy to be doing what he did that it was a delight to interact with him. Shruti in the multi-cuisine restaurant and at the Seafood restaurant was warm, understanding, knowledgeable, empathetic, efficient and accommodating. Chefs did a great job both at breakfast where the hot food, chosen from a vast selection of international items comes to your table with no defined limits! For the adventure lovers, their is natural flora and fauna at the mangroves next door with kayaking & water sports available; as is a Nicklaus design 18-hole golf course. What is amazing to see is how different the minimalist design of the resort is as compared to the grandeur of some of the other famed resorts of Oberoi Hotels in India but then there is a constant desire by this brand to beat their own yardsticks and benchmarks each time they open something new. Training of the team and the effectiveness of the management in various areas is so pronounced and obvious that it is a delight. Our young kids are so looking forward to going back that the pressure is on me to save for another short-break! As for me and my wife, we are so looking forward to the opening of Oberoi resort in Marrakech, Morocco because we know that once again, small details would be par-excellence. Well done Oberoi Hotels & Resorts, we are so proud! To the people of UAE and GCC - use the summer months to get some fabulous deals for a property which is 10 times more worth than the money you will pay and it will indeed be 10 times more expensive in the winter months.

We love Oberoi Hotels and stayed at the Ajman property in November and again last week. Located on the shores the hotel is absolute pristine and and maintained to the highest standard. But what makes it special like any other Oberoi hotel are the staff. Wonderful, friendly and professional and nothing is too much. The pool area is beautiful and we would recommend anyone who is looking for a secluded and peaceful vacation to stay here. If you are looking for "Dubai" type nightlife outside the hotel then it's not for you. Read less
