Embedded within a nature reserve along the unspoiled coastline of the emirate of Ajman, the Oberoi Al Zorah offers a serene, secluded contrast to the busy, high rise metropolis of Dubai despite its close proximity to the famous sights and sounds of the city. With long, white sand beaches, azure ocean and acres of protected mangrove forests, this natural oasis is also home to pink flamingos along with 58 other species of bird, which are waiting to be discovered on foot from the specially designed walkways or by canoe through the tranquil waterways.

The resort offers 113 keys, with spacious, contemporary interiors featuring lots of natual light and materials. The rooms and suites offer large furnished balconies from which to take in uninterrupted views of either the Arabian Gulf, protected mangrove forests or the resort's beautifully manicured gardens. The villas have one to three bedrooms and feature temperature controlled private pools and direct beach access. All rooms offer the latest in technology with the Oberoi Enhance system taking center stage and controlling everything from entertainment to in-room dining.

The resort offers the perfect peaceful environment in which to relax and do very little other than sip cocktails by the poolside and enjoy the exquisite cuisine prepared in Vinesse's glass show kitchen or straight from Aquario's seafood grill. However should guests wish to be more active during their stay, the 18-hole championship Al Zorah golf course is located just minutes away, and both motorized and non-motorized watersports are available at the beach and the mangrove. An 85m infinity pool, jogging track and Sensoi Spa are also on site for guests enjoyment.


All the rooms and suites at The Oberoi Al Zorah have been meticulously designed with a distinctly contemporary feel focussing on neutral color palettes and maximising the natural light with high ceilings and floor to ceiling glass windows.

Common features also include high speed internet access, 24-hour butler and in-room dining service, and the cutting edge 'Oberoi E'nhance' automated room technology - an iPad interface from which you can control everything from ordering a meal to booking a spa treatment and choose your in-house entertainment from many international entertainment channels.

Location & Directions

Ajman, United Arab Emirates

The Oberoi Al Zorah is located 35km north of Dubai airport in Ajman, one of the seven United Arab Emirates and the smallest in terms of area.

When to go

The best time to visit the UAE is between October and November and then February and March, when temperatures hang around the mid-20s and the humidity is under control. While December and January are generally considered the best months to go, the weather over the last couple of ‘winters’ has been unpredictable with occasional cloud and rain.

The month of Ramadan means hotel rates are heavily discounted, but while outside the resort, Ramadan is strictly adhered to, within the resorts you will notice very little difference.

High summer (July and August) means heavy discounted hotels it’s a great option for a cheap getaway but it will be very very hot and very very humid!
