Review: Fairmont Ajman, UAE


Book A Stay

Ajman is the smallest of the seven United Arab Emirates, it has a beautiful, palm-lined sandy beach, a pretty 16km corniche and a chilled, low-key vibe that makes for an excellent contrast from the heady heights of Dubai which lies just 30 minutes away. Stay at the beautiful five-star Fairmont Ajman and enjoy impeccable service, great facilities and a wonderful beachfront location.


The hotel is a 30-minute drive from Dubai International Airport and just 15-minutes from Sharjah International Airport. Its’ very convenient location makes it popular with visitors wanting to add a quieter stopover to a trip to Dubai, but there’s lots to do in Ajman in its own right too, with an exciting mix of beaches and mangroves, of museums and malls, a renowned golf course and a Camel Racecourse!

Style & Character

Inside and out the hotel is elegant and contemporary. A simple colour palate in the interiors gives a classy feel and subtle touches throughout offer a nod to your location.

Service & Facilities

Your biggest problem here is going to be choosing between the pristine 200-metre private beach and the inviting temperature-controlled infinity pool! On one hand, the pool has a very tempting swim-up bar and is surrounded by shady palm trees, loungers and umbrellas and there’s even intimate cabanas that you can reserve; but on the other hand, at the beach you can try out just about every sort of water sport you can think of – from jet skiing to flyboarding, from water skiing to wakeboarding and more. I suggest you alternate one day at each! And if you simply can’t decide, just head to the Spa instead, enjoy the opulent Turkish Hammam area, the steam and sauna rooms, have an indulging treatment and then take an invigorating ice shower or workout at the fitness centre to refresh you afterwards! The impeccable world class service of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is evident here but there is an extra element of Arabian hospitality which adds a personal feel.


There are 252 guest rooms and suites; all are spacious and offer marble bathrooms and stunning views of the Arabian Gulf but some offer a little bit extra besides. Deluxe Rooms add a balcony, Family Rooms are interconnecting and the Signature Terrace Sea View add a vast balcony with spectacular views. If budget allows, the Suites are exceptional spaces, both in terms of their sheer size and their opulence but mostly of their unrivalled panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf.

Food & Drink

You are a little bit spoilt when it comes to dining here as there are 8 exquisite restaurants and lounges to choose from, some of the most popular include: Spectrum, their buffet restaurant which is quite unlike most typical buffet restaurants in terms of quality and range; Kiyi, the signature Turkish restaurant which offers fabulous Turkish décor to match the delicious cuisine and Gioia, a classic Italian restaurant with a traditional pizza oven and an open kitchen. After dinner, head to Badr Lounge, the perfect spot for magical sunsets and gorgeous panoramic sea views.
