The Fujairah Rotana is nestled between the mountains and Al Aqah Beach, creating an idyllic setting. We had the pleasure of exploring this magnificent resort over a weekend, and our detailed account of the experience follows.

The setting

The hotel lobby is impressively spacious, stretching from the main entrance to the resort’s garden and pool area, adorned with a fountain that runs its entire length.

The hotel’s construction revolves around a vast garden that harbors a variety of tree and plant species, including coconut trees, date palms, and frangipani. Throughout the day, the cheerful chirping of diverse bird species sets a serene tone, cultivating a relaxation-conducive atmosphere.

"The Fujairah Rotana seamlessly combines all the ingredients for a rejuvenating weekend escape or an extended week-long vacation: serenity, lush landscapes, majestic mountains, pristine beachfront, exhilarating water sports, a world-class spa, and culinary excellence.”

THE ROOMS

Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised with an upgrade to a suite offering a direct view of the pool and beach. The suite proved incredibly spacious, boasting a dining area, a comfortable sitting space, a cozy bedroom, and a well-equipped bathroom with a shower. Adding a touch of luxury, the toiletries are thoughtfully provided by L’Occitane.

The room’s decor and amenities exude modernity and elegance. Both the bedroom and living room open up to a pair of balconies that offer captivating vistas of the pool and beach. The hotel, in general, boasts impeccable orientation, granting captivating views from virtually any location.

Leisure & Well-being

The fitness center within the hotel premises is exceptionally spacious and goes beyond the standard hotel offerings. It is open to both guests and non-residents and offers a comprehensive range of cardio equipment such as treadmills and stationary bikes, in addition to a fully-equipped section dedicated to weightlifting and machines.

Sports enthusiasts will find an exceptional setup featuring two expansive hard-surface tennis courts and a dedicated squash court, which require prior reservation.

For those seeking more than just relaxation, the hotel’s water sports center, situated by the beach, offers an array of thrilling activities. From parasailing and jet skiing to water skiing, diving, and even deep-sea fishing, there’s an abundance of aquatic adventures. Additionally, the option to indulge in snorkeling and inflatable tube rides, towed by a speedboat, further enriches the experience.

Adjacent to the hotel, the Fujairah Rotana’s spa facility is a sprawling haven of relaxation. Renowned in the region, this spa has earned numerous accolades since its inception. Our personal experience included an aromatherapy massage that covers various body parts, strategically targeting pressure points using essential oils renowned for their therapeutic benefits.

The spa’s offerings extend to a “wet area,” where guests can enjoy brief sessions in small chambers equipped with a hammam, sauna, hydro-massage shower, and even an ice-covered room. This comprehensive treatment aims to enhance blood circulation and invigorate muscles.

CULINARY EXPERIENCES

The “Mozaique” restaurant serves as the hotel’s all-day dining venue, presenting an international buffet spread for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With a focus on fresh ingredients, salads, grilled dishes, and live cooking stations manned by the chef, it offers a diverse culinary experience.

For dinner, the “Waves” restaurant takes the spotlight, beautifully situated by the beach and offering a diverse à la carte menu, with an emphasis on seafood and meat grills.

“Sharkey’s Bar,” operational for lunch and dinner, specializes in quick bites like sandwiches, pizzas, and salads. It also features a beach bar, adding a touch of tropical charm.

The “Tropicana Pool Bar,” set within the resort’s expansive pool, serves up refreshing cocktails and beverages, along with a delectable selection of snacks throughout the day.

The “Al Falaj Lobby Café” provides a cozy setting to enjoy hot beverages, fresh juices, and delectable pastries from 8 AM to 11 PM, conveniently located in the hotel’s lobby.
