A world away from inner city living, Fairmont Fujairah Beach Resort is a destination where even the most discerning traveller will discover peace of mind. A mere 90 minutes’ escape from the ordinary to relax in the extraordinary.

 

Stacked rug linings reminiscent of a colourful Arabic souk and comfortable Majlis style-seating flank the reception, serving as the lobby’s welcome point. To celebrate the past, a mix of sculptural pieces and artworks are showcased throughout and defined through cultural and social references. A 2500BC ostrich egg on display at the Fujairah Museum inspired two oversized egg sculptures that sit in front of the feature staircase embellished by framed vintage jewellery and Berber rugs. These lead guests down to a haven of calm and serenity – Willow Stream Spa – where the design is simple, elegant and in line with the organic elements of the treatments themselves.

Pops of yellow at the Canvas and IAMMAI outlets create a fun and casual pool-side atmosphere, while contrasting the intricate black and white geometric patterns in Arteasan’s marble flooring and the natural greenery surrounding the marina. The Berber carpet-inspired pool – best seen from the adjacent elevated platforms – is the hotel’s signature design element, one that will be used to identify Fujairah’s only art-inspired resort for years to come. Creating a new chapter in the Fairmont legacy, the hotel’s sophisticated and luxurious design DNA has defined a unique resort style hotel in Fujairah.

In ode to the Omani rock lobster found in the region’s waters, Copper Lobster restaurant offers a daily fresh-catch menu. The name, inspired by the regionally caught lobster, which has a unique glow, somewhat like copper, focuses on preparing local seafood in creative and delicious ways. From Fujairah’s hammour and tiger prawns to Omani lobster, the resort has partnered with local fishermen to bring guests the best of Dibba’s fish markets and Khorfakkan’s fish farms. Fairmont Fujairah Beach Resort has hired a local fish consultant to determine where the finest seafood can be sourced.
