Fairmont Hotels and Resort to open properties in Ajman and Fujairah

The Toronto-based hotel group Fairmont Hotels and Resorts will be adding new luxury hotels to its portfolio in the United Arab Emirates this year.

The international hotel chain opened the Fairmont Ajman in May and it will be opening the Fairmont Fujairah later this year; both of which were scheduled to open in 2013.

Fairmont made its debut in the United Arab Emirates in 2002 with the opening of the Fairmont Dubai, and it also operates Fairmont Bab Al Bahr in Abu Dhabi and the Fairmont the Palm Dubai. Next year, the Fairmont Abu Dhabi Marina is scheduled to open in the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

Fairmont Ajman is located just 30 minutes from Dubai on a sandy stretch of coastline fringed with turquoise ocean waters.

The luxury hotel has 252 guest rooms and suites, all with views of the Arabian Gulf, and modern amenities including state-of-the-art technology such as 42-inch LCD TVs, media panels, high-speed internet. Bathrooms come with separate bath tubs and rainforest showers and Le Labo bath products.

Facilities include several gourmet restaurants and stylish bars such as the Spectrum with live action cooking stations and the Poolside Bar; an infinity pool with sun loungers and cabanas; a spa with a wide range of pampering treatments and services, Jacuzzis, steam rooms and saunas.

The 194-room Fairmont Fujairah hotel will have a Willow Stream spa, meeting rooms, and a marina, and will boast stunning views of the ocean.

"The weak euro is expected to cause some shift in demand from the more expensive destination [Dubai] to a cheaper one. However, it is likely to be minor and short term in nature unless the devaluation issue persists or worsens in the future."

Explained Rashid Aboobacker, a senior consultant with TRI Consulting. He also commented:

"Operators are also attracted to Ajman and Fujairah due to opportunities for genuine beachfront resorts, while there are limited opportunities left in Dubai."

Fujairah and Ajman are two of seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, and Fujairah is the only one that has its entire coastline facing the Gulf of Oman.

The United Arab Emirates are located in the Middle East and include the capital Abu Dhabi, the cosmopolitan Dubai with its soaring unique architecture and luxury hotels, and Ras Al Khaimah with its vast red desert, verdant green plains, creeks and sparkling azure lagoons.
