Oberoi Al Zorah, Dubai
Oberoi’s first ultra-modern, beach hideaway resort brings exceptional standards to authentic Ajman.
Just 30 minutes from Dubai Airport, tucked away on a soft white sand beach studded with seashells, this ultra-modern resort is a destination in itself. Opened in 2017, it’s a newer addition to little-known Ajman’s collection of hotels but the renowned, sublime service of the Oberoi brand is a welcome coup. With its sleek, contemporary architecture, it’s quite a departure for Oberoi, known mostly for its Indian heritage hotels. Each room and villa comes with 24-hour butler service and complimentary activities to enhance a beach escape.
