… with the unique Al Zorah Mangrove Reserve and myriad cultural attractions, Ajman welcomes you
“Sincerely Emirati” embodies all that Ajman stands for: a blend of traditional culture, rich tradition in hospitality, and spectacular ve-star luxury resorts.
The high-end beachfront hotels on Ajman’s shoreline offer private beaches and views overlooking the turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf. The most recent to open its doors is The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zorah. The five-star resort is the first waterfront hospitality project in the Al Zorah Premier Mixed-use Community that sits on a 5 million sq m site and includes a nature reserve, acclaimed golf-course and marina. Watersports include kayaking around mangroves, wakeboarding and jet skiing. A traditional Jalbout also takes visitors on an interactive and informative roam around the mangroves while they learn about a pearl diver’s journey in the last century. It offers a fascinating insight to the early industry upon which the economy of the Emirate was based before joining the UAE.
For those seeking culture, Ajman Museum is among the most visited sites in the Emirate. Here, an 18th-century fort houses archaeological gems and it has an astounding collection of artefacts and archaeological nds, including centuries old manuscripts, weaponry and pottery. In the spacious courtyard, visitors can see recreations of traditional wells, irrigation systems and the wooden dhows for which Ajman was once famous. Inside, there are intricately detailed models depicting Ajman’s culture and history, from housing to law and order to fishing – all providing the perfect insight into traditional Arabic life.
With Ajman’s rugged landscape taking in the Masfout Mountains and timeless desert, visitors can indulge in land-based adventures, barbequing under the stars or hiking around ancient ruins. For those who prefer a more relaxed pace, glide along to the aromatic spas in world-class hotels, or sun-drenched cabanas beside temperature controlled, sapphire waters of the hotel pools. There is truly something for everyone who visits Ajman.
