Fairmont Ajman Opens Beachside on the Arabian Peninsula
May 1, 2015
Its close proximity to neighboring Dubai makes it the ideal destination to experience both a slightly gentler pace of holiday combined with vibrant cosmopolitan life.
“Ajman has its own charm with a strong maritime, trade and fishing heritage and is perfect for travelers who want cultural tourism as well as a relaxed and an unhurried experience”, said Henny Schaeffer, general manager, Fairmont Ajman. “The tourism sector is growing in this Emirate with an expansive program of development which will make it even more popular as a destination for both international tourists and UAE residents. The opening will only strengthen our luxury hotel brand's already robust presence in the region.”
Fairmont Ajman stands on a 200-metre stretch of golden sand and boasts 14 floors including 252 guestrooms and two-storey penthouses, each offering panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf. Highlighted by spacious and light filled spaces with a soft palette of pearl silvers and neutral toned textiles, the resort is designed to evoke tranquility and serenity while maintaining the destination's rich Arabian heritage and culture.
A large infinity pool, children's activity facility, and spa and fitness centre round out the resort's leisure offerings. Meeting and social event planners will have access to seven meeting spaces, including a ballroom that can accommodate upwards of 380 attendees with nine meter tall floor to ceiling windows providing spectacular Gulf views. Another key feature of the resort is its innovative dining portfolio consisting of seven restaurants and lounges, including, Spectrum, an international restaurant with interactive live cooking stations, based on the former award-winning Spectrum on One at the Fairmont Dubai. Other dining areas include an outdoor lounge set against a staggering Gulf backdrop, an Arabian-themed nightclub and a signature Turkish restaurant which will debut later in the year.
Having been swept up in a wave of development in recent years, Ajman has become an attractive destination to explore both leisure and potential business opportunities with additions such as the Ajman City Centre mall and the Emirates City residential area. Visitors are attracted by the Emirate's idyllic beaches as well as its heritage attractions which include Ajman Dhow Yard – said to be the world's largest boat building yard – the Ajman National Museum and Ajman Fort. Moreover, plans are set for Al Zorah, a development which will feature lifestyle residences, a championship 18-hole golf course, and a marina with a variety of water sports. Also in the pipeline for development are a multimillion dollar airport and a theme park.
“The opening of Fairmont Ajman aligns with our expansion strategy to more than double our company's regional footprint by 2020,” said Sami Nasser, senior vice president, operations, FRHI Hotels & Resorts, the brand's parent company. “With close to a million visitors arriving in Ajman every year and tourism numbers expected to increase, the resort is arriving in the market at a very opportune time and perfectly complements our company's unrivaled portfolio in the UAE.”
Fairmont Ajman is located near the coast in the northern part of the UAE and is the smallest of the seven Emirates, covering just 260 square kilometers. The hotel is surrounded by pristine landscape and an abundance of historical attractions, shopping malls and entertainment. Fairmont Ajman joins a distinctive collection in the United Arab Emirates that includes Fairmont Dubai, Fairmont The Palm and Fairmont Bab Al Bahr in Abu Dhabi.
