The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zorah

Ajman, Dubai Beaches and beyond

Virgin rating

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, cocktails, responsibly sourced seafood, and gourmet gastronomy.

The property is absolutely beautiful. Gardens are impecable. Lightning at night is just perfect. Even the place's scent is very pleasant. Service is outstanding. Everybody tries his/her best to give you an amazing experience. The place is quiet and ideal if you are looking to have a relaxing family vacation. Kid's club is awesome. The two restaurants are great. The one by the beach is particularly good. Superb seafood and ambiance at night. We booked a BBQ at our room one evening and it was delicious. The whole atmosphere Oberoi manages to create is extraordinary. We have spent 7 days at the hotel and came back home with our batteries well charged! We will be back for sure. We have become addicted to the Oberoi experience :) Congratulations to The Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah's team for such a magnificent hotel. Read less

The landscape is beautiful and properly maintained despite the harsh weather.We had dinner at the Aquario restaurant where the exquisite fish was served along with a great salad. The clientele is really high end and the ambiance very refined. Breakfast at the Vinesse restaurant was delicious and the variety is huge to serve all tastes. We will definitely be back for more enjoyable experiences. Read less

Stunning property. Phenomenal service standards. Rooms are very large (even standard rooms). The beach is great and they have a 85 mtr. pool! Quality of F&B is great as well. Will surely recommend this resort! They could probably add another restaurant in the resort!

We stayed at the Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah during the Easter break. The entire location feels like an oasis, is amazingly beautiful and very well maintained. The service level is high, as we were used to from staying at other Oberoi hotels. We stayed in a room with balcony (not in one of the villas) facing the sea, which was impeccably clean and spacious and was furnished in a trendy, yet tasteful way. The staff from concierge, housekeeping, service staff at Vinesse restaurant and the at the beach side were super accommodating, very friendly and supportive. We are definitely planning to come again!
