“The ultimate beach Address in Fujairah, nestled into the mountains, cascading down to sea.” Address Beach Resort Fujairah
Take a scenic road trip north from Abu Dhabi or Dubai and in just under three hours you find yourself in the mountainous emirate of Fujairah. The emirate, which borders Sharjah and the Oman peninsula, offers visitors breathtaking scenery where the Hajar Mountains meet the azure waters of the Gulf of Oman.
Nestled between the mountains and the ocean, in its own private enclave, is the new Address Beach Resort Fujairah, a luxury beachfront hotel that opened last year. The contemporary resort oozes style from start to finish with first rate service and facilities. It’s elegant, smells amazing courtesy of the signature Address musky fragrance and is coordinated throughout with a combined neutral and oceanic colour palette. The modern design and aesthetics are interspersed with regional touches and replicated throughout the resort.
With 196 rooms there’s plenty of accommodation choices ranging from the smallest mountain view room to a four bedroom ocean view residence. We stayed in a spacious deluxe ocean view room that was tastefully decorated with soft blue hues, coordinated textiles and artwork. The room featured an extremely comfortable king bed, a large modern bathroom with walk-in shower, bath, separate toilet and Balmain amenities. Additionally there was a seating area, TV, Nespresso machine and a private balcony with panoramic views across the whole resort.
Dining wise The Restaurant at Address offers guests an array of internationally inspired dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Like the rest of the resort the all-day dining space is seriously chic with indoor and outdoor seating on the wraparound terrace. The various menus include plenty of regional dishes, fresh local seafood and the famous Dibba Bay oysters.
We enjoyed the sumptuous breakfast buffet with live egg stations, an extensive bakery selection, waffles, fresh fruit, cold meats & cheeses and international dishes. For dinner there’s a choice of an a la carte option or an expansive buffet, we tried both options during our two-night stay (the dinner buffet is understandably larger at the weekend).
The pool bar is the place for snacks, sandwiches and drinks. I highly recommend this spot for an alfresco lunch with a glass of chilled rose. The daily Happy Hour (6pm – 8pm) takes place at the pool terrace offering extremely well priced beverages (from AED 18) and live music, it was definitely a highlight for us. In the lobby, The Lounge offers specialty coffee, pastries, cakes and light bites.
The sizable tiered property is the backdrop for all the outdoor facilities that includes three swimming pools, a stretch of private beach with loungers and parasols, beautiful landscaped gardens and Al Boom Water Sports. Among the trips offered are a sunrise fishing trip with the chef, hiking expeditions or an excursion to the Dibba Bay oyster farm.
Ultimate relaxation can be found at The Spa which has seven treatment rooms, two hammans, steam rooms and a nail bar. The spa menu is vast with signature treatments inspired by the ocean, nature and the surrounding landscape. There’s a state-of-the-art gym and the younger members of the family can be entertained at the Qix kids club and outdoor playground.
This resort is not only the perfect place for a UAE staycation but also a fabulous escape for those visiting the more well-known emirates. Just kick back, relax and enjoy the top notch service, nothing is too much trouble and every staff member we encountered were friendly and professional. I would say it’s the best all-round service I’ve had in a long time. The resort’s proximity to the Oman peninsula makes it the ideal location to explore the jagged Musandam coastline.
