The Fairmont Ajman is one of the latest luxury hotels to open its doors to the public on the beautiful Ajman Corniche. Ajman has been a booming emirate in recent years thanks to multiple investments made by the local government in tourism infrastructure.
 
Getting there

Ajman is only 30 mins from Dubai.
It is relatively easy to reach the Fairmont Ajman from other emirates. Located almost on the border between Ajman and Sharjah, you can then drive along the corniche connecting the two emirates to get there.



If you come from further away, like Ras Al Khaimah or the new Dubai, it is then rather recommended to take Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road and to go out at Sharjah Golf & Shooting Club exit. You will then arrive directly in the city and will be only a few minutes from the Corniche and the Fairmont also.

The majority of the 5 * hotels and resorts in the Emirate are concentrated along its magnificent corniche, including the Fairmont Ajman, newly inaugurated just 2 years ago.


The setting

The Fairmont Ajman gets noticed right from the start thanks to its height, as compared to other nearby hotels, and its pyramid-shaped architectural design.

Nestled on the tip of the Arabian Gulf, on one of the most popular beaches in the Emirates, the 14-story hotel with 252 rooms and suites opened in May 2015. It offers spectacular views of the crystal clear waters and sandy beaches of the emirate.

With a pristine 200-meter waterfront, the Fairmont Ajman has the true proportions of a luxury resort worthy of the name.





Designed and developed by a local company, the hotel aims to represent the heritage and culture of the destination. This has been perfectly achieved by cleverly incorporating into the architecture the natural elements of the sand of the desert and the sea. Inside, the spaces filled with light with fresh and bright colors evoke calm and serenity.

The journey begins in the majestic lobby where you will be warmly welcomed with a cup of Arabic coffee and local dates, a true bedouin tradition.





The center of the hotel offers a vertical tunnel of light through a glass ceiling allowing the turquoise and azure accents of the lobby furniture, intertwined with intricate geometric shapes, to come to life.

The chandelier hanging above the lobby, and celebrating the coastal heritage of the local population, is impressive and one of the most photographed places of the hotel so get your Instagram and Facebook posts ready...

The rooms

Rooms at Fairmont Ajman are contemporary in style and provide a feeling of well being and freshness right from the entrance.

Each of the resort's 252 rooms and suites is luxuriously appointed with rich furnishings and cleverly associated with art pieces arranged here and there.

Upon arrival, a welcome message in rose petals arranged by the room service team of the hotel made us truly feel at home ...




Each room, combining classic style and comfort, offers an ideal setting for relaxation but also workspaces. Almost every room in the hotel offers unobstructed views of the sea to provide a gentle wake-up call or a special moment with a drink in your hand from the balcony of your room.

On the horizon, the azure blue sea and sky merge and provide an exceptional spectacle at sunset. In the distance, you will see the movements of the ships waiting for their turn to dock at the Ajman port and lighting up the sea at night...





Leisure & Wellness

The leisure and entertainement facilities of the Fairmont Ajman confirm its status of outstanding 5* hotel. The huge temperature controlled infinity pool and the 200m long waterfront will be your favorite playgrounds during your stay.

Even though there are plenty of sunlounges around the pool, cabanas are also available for hotel residents wishing a little more privacy. The cabanas are equipped with sunbeds, cushions and fans as well as a dining area. The service is available during pool opening hours and you can order food or beverages from the central pool bar just a few steps away.





The hotel's gym is fully equipped for cardio and weight training and also has a sauna and hamam that can be used by the hotel residents, inside the changing rooms. Two large billiard tables are also available to residents in the hotel's Xolo restaurant and bar.

The hotel's spa, run by a local chain, features a wide range of treatments, eight rooms, as well as an authentic hammam experience with a central marble table room.


 

Stay and Play : Golf at the Fairmont Ajman

The hotel has partnered with the famous and brand new Al Zorah Golf Course located just a few kms from the Fairmont Ajman. The course of Al Zorah is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful golf courses in the region.





Nestled in the middle of the mangroves, water is an omnipresent element throughout the course. It is indeed no less than one million square meters of mangroves that populate the course itself and its surroundings. 

The course has the particularity to drastically change over the seasons depending on whether the mangroves are dry or flooded with a constantly changing tide system, and also presenting a unique challenge for the players. Which makes the gaming experience all the more interesting.





Al Zorah is a world-class course specially designated by the famous group Nicklaus Design. The spectacular par 72 Al Zorah Golf Club has fairways and greens so perfectly maintained by the team all-year long that you will feel like playing over a pool table all along the course.

The beauty of the place is just stunning, offering alternating breathtaking backgrounds such as the great mosque of Ajman, skyscrapers of the city or the rich mangrove extending as far as the eye can see ...





We tried Al Zorah during our stay at the Fairmont Ajman and were amazed at the unique gaming experience this course offers. Thanks to fairly wide fairways, the course will be rather forgiving to beginners or players with less game experience. Some holes will however provide true challenges to more seasonned golfers and force them to make tough decisions should they wish to par or birdie their hole.

Visitors to the Al Zorah Golf Club can also enjoy a beautifully structured pavilion overlooking the course and housing several restaurants, the pro shop and locker rooms.

No less than nine restaurants and lounges make up the culinary offer of the hotel, each with its own specialty or theme. Here is an overview of Fairmont Ajman restaurants:

Spectrum

Spectrum is the international all day dining and main restaurant of the hotel. This iconic restaurant is designed as an interactive multi-cuisine venue and offers flavors from around the world. We had our daily breakfast at Spectrum but the restaurant also serves lunch and dinner each day.

The buffets at the Spectrum are impressive in quantity and quality. You will find there a wide selection of local or imported products, cleverly prepared and associated by the chefs of the restaurant.





The restaurant is organized in several themed stations for lunch and dinner such as the Indian cuisine with its curries, the Asian cuisine with live cooking fried noodles and sushis, a cheese station, a western dishes station, seafood and grilled meat station, etc. .

A restaurant that definitely deserves a visit during your stay at Fairmont Ajman.

Gioia

One of Fairmont Ajman's signature restaurants, Gioia showcases a perfect setting for a traditional Italian lunch where you can watch the chefs getting busy through the open kitchens. 





Gioia delights its guests with tasty and generous Italian cuisine from appetizers to desserts. Difficult to make your choice as the entire menu is mouthwatering and invites to travel accross Italy.


Among the dishes to try without hesitation: the minestrone or seafood soups, risottos or the salmon pasta. Such a delicious treat that we returned 2 times to Gioia during our stay at the Fairmont Ajman !

Al Badr lounge

Al Badr is the lounge of the hotel offering a unique view of the resort and the sea on the horizon. The ideal place to enjoy sumptuous sunsets, sip on a drink or smoke a shisha.





Al Badr offers a selection of Turkish teas and gourmet teas, served with Turkish pastries, lokoums or dried fruit assortments.

Shisha can also be made to order by a shisha sommelier, something quite unique in the region.





Kiyi

This authentic Turkish restaurant located just below Al Badr Lounge and designed in a traditional Ottoman Imperial setting is one of the most memorable culinary experiences of our stay at the Fairmont Ajman.

Kiyi invites guests to a culinary journey to the flavors, colors and aromas of historic Turkey, with dishes derived from the traditions of the Topkapi Sultan's Palace in Istanbul. A perfect place for a meal shared with family or friends in the true tradition of Turkish meals.



The setting of the restaurant is sumptuous and you will dine in a cozy atmosphere, right on the floor with confortable cushions laid on the central majlis or at one of the restaurant tables with soft lighting creating a unique atmosphere.

The menu is extensive and offers several varieties of hot and cold mezes and classics of Turkish gastronomy ranging from main courses to desserts.

Salt & Sea

The poolside restaurant at the Fairmont Ajman. A casual setting to enjoy a selection of quick-to-prepare but yet delicious dishes. On the menu, salads and gourmet sandwiches, pizzas, pasta and a selection of grilled meat or seafood complemented by some desserts.

Salt & Sea also offers a full drink list served at the plunge bar, at your sunbed or in the cabanas.

Driftwood

An original place and concept for this true beach restaurant. With a natural decor made out of recycled materials and items, this Caribbean-themed restaurant is the perfect place for a casual lunch or dinner feet in the sand.

Without any claims, Driftwood offers visitors a simple menu focusing on grilled meats and seafood, with some delicious side dishes and easy bites.
