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 recently checked out from the beautiful haven after a wonderful 5 month stay. This is without a doubt one of my favourite hotels I have ever stayed in. Having stayed in the 2 bed room villa and the premier suite during the tenure of our stay, I must admit that both room categories are tastefully designed, very spacious, clean, and with breathtaking views of the sea. The hotel is a true representation of an Oberoi Property that goes out of its way to ensure that your every need is taken care of albeit from the small touches in the room to the brilliant and excellent service given at the restaurants. The service is truly impeccable and by far one of the best we have ever experienced having stayed in some of the best hotels across the world. While staying for almost 5 months we have gotten to know a lot of the team members like our own family and we will surely miss them. A special mention to the General Manager Antonino and the hotel manager Sunita for managing such a beautiful resort and benchmarking it among the best in the region. Our reservations were very well handled by Ms. Dewi, ever helpful and accommodating with all our requests. The restaurants and bars managed by the Fnb Manager Ricardo along with Jad, Piyush, Shruti, Pankaj, Gautam, Rahul, Akum, Theresa, Khin, Ancel have all been fantastic throughout during breakfast at Vinesse or in our villa/ suite and at our favourite place Aquario. The personalisation provided by the team is wonderful right from our first days understanding our preferences and always providing small touches, thus creating memorable dining experiences every time we are there. The food quality is what stands out in the hotel which is truly marvellous. Chef William, Gaurav, Royston, Dhaval and the entire go out of their way to make sure you get the best food at all times. Lastly the housekeeping team led by Tanvir and Rimpa has been remarkable, always going the extra mile to ensure the room cleanliness and standards are always maintained. We will be back soon to our second home. Read less

On one of the evenings we had the private BBQ and I cannot recommend this enough, the flavours they got of the grill were phenomenal. Well worth a visit. Read less

We’ve not yet completed our stay but the interactions from the time of booking till our being half way through has been breathtaking and not to mention outstanding. My experience with the Oberoi chain has been one where you can sense and feel their values and commitment to their customers. There was not a single person right from Ahmed @ reservations, Khalid @ valet, Rajeshwari @ checkin, Abhishek and Tariq @ Aquario and Raj who drove us back who failed to impress with their selfless customer orientation. The room decoration acknowledging the birthday of my better half we were celebrating, one of the most fascinating bouquets my wife received. Thanks for the overwhelming hospitality that has brought us here twice and we will surely come again. Thanks for making our day - the entire Oberoi team Read less
