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 are a family of four living in dubai and cane away for a weekend away, we have had several staycations over the summer and this was the best of them all. The hotel is amazing, it’s modern and the rooms are huge, extra beds for the kids was no problem and the views spectacular. The pool was so long and lovely to spend the day in and next to the hotel is quest for adventure where we had a great kayak excursion through the mangroves. What really made the stay was the staff and level of service they were all amazing and the dinner and breakfast exceptional. The poolside bar was also lovely and offers free water and ice lollies. Ankita looked after us for dinner which was r was sky special and her knowledge of the menu and our needs made it a really special meal. We would love to come back for another stay and would highly recommend this spot for a staycation that really delivers. Read less
