Another new hotel opening just 30 minutes from Dubai and worth a nose is the newest Fairmont flagship in the United Arab Emirates, The Fairmont Ajman. Why does it appeal? Bottom line, this five star immaculate hotel currently comes in at under a third of the price of the Fairmont the Palm up the road, for this reason alone it is worth considering.

Located in the emirate of perennial sunshine and stunning white sand beaches, Ajman offers a delightful contrast and a gentler pace of life set on a stretch of shoreline called the Corniche where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in opal hued and clear waters, and to soak in genuine Arabian traditions and hospitality.

Showcasing exotic design and sophisticated chic with polished textures using timeless palettes the 252 room Fairmont Ajman fits its resort setting perfectly. Round seating and rugs bring in a local note to the aesthetic. Golden shades and delicate patterns add another piece to the design puzzle, while subtler touches like an Oriental rug pattern on top of the tables finish off the statement with a quiet polish. Streamlined furniture in the guestrooms keeps the look effortless.

The hotel features seven dining venues as well as an expansive infinity pool with ample sun loungers and cabanas, children’s activity facility and spa and fitness center. The seven meeting spaces include a 380-person capacity ballroom.

“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. “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.”

With opening rates at 552AED per night compared to 1,799AED per night at the Fairmont the Palm, can you resist?
