The Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah in Ajman is truly an escape like no other in the UAE.

Located just a 40-minute drive from Downtown Dubai, Al Zorah allows its guests to completely get away from city life.

Having first opened in 2017 as the second UAE-based property for the family-owned Oberoi group. Unlike its Dubai counterpart which is in the heart of the city, Al Zorah is a tranquil getaway and feels like a world of its own.

Designed by Italian architect Piero Lissoni, the sophisticated contemporary resort encompasses an open-plan concept complete with earthy tones to seamlessly blends in with its natural surroundings. Located just next to the resort are a golf course and an extensive natural park with lagoons and mangroves, ideal for those who wish to do some exploring.

Oberoi Al Zorah review (1)

Reflected in the design of Al Zorah is the epitome of Oberoi as a brand – creating a bespoke experience for its guests. As the senior staff at Al Zorah explained to us, the Oberoi Group has always put the guest first and within this lies creating a distinctive hotel experience for each individual that walks through its doors.

The thoughtfully designed resort is laid out across three platforms, which lead down onto the property’s private sandy beach.

At the top, you’ll find the buildings housing the 74 private rooms, which should be regarded as suites due to the incredible amount of space you get, the reception and concierge, a restaurant and the 85-metre pool.

Heading closer to the beach, on the second platform, you’ll find the seven three-bedroom villas, complete with their own private pools, and the luxury spa. Closest to the beach is where the eight two-bedroom villas with generous terraces and private pools and the resort’s second culinary offering on the beach.

The 355,209 square foot resort houses two dining concepts – Vinesse and Aquario. The former is the resort’s main restaurant which offers all-day dining with international cuisine with a contemporary twist, meaning there’s something for everyone.

Meanwhile, Aquairo, is Al Zorah’s beachside haven, specialising in seafood sourced sustainably and responsibly from local and international waters, prepared using culinary techniques from the Provençal and Italian Mediterranean coast. The ambience is perfect for a late lunch in the sun or for an early dinner overlooking the sunset.

As for activities, the Al Zorah golf course is a stone’s throw away for those who are keen golfers. And for those who like to explore, opt for a kayaking tour amongst the Al Zorah mangroves.

For those who prefer to simply relax, unwind poolside at the luxury 85-metre pool where you can soak up the sun with a mocktail or cocktail from the pool bar.

Further revitalises yourself at the Oberoi Al Zorah’s luxury spa which features private treatment rooms with open-air showers and private hammams. Choose from a wide range of treatments including bespoke facials and massages, advanced holistic treatments, hammam scrubs and more.

All in all, the Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah embodies what luxury is all about – a bespoke experience like no other.
