Treat the family to an unforgettable escape at Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort

The Rooms & Suites

The word iconic is banded about without due thought these days, but Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort is truly an iconic UAE hotel. Separated from the Indian Ocean by a swathe of private beach (perfect for a moonlit stroll), a great range of spacious rooms and suites (all sea-facing, and many with additional sofa beds and Club Lounge access) make for the perfect family getaway.

The Food

The hotel’s wide variety of restaurants grants you license to roam – particularly as kids aged under 12 eat for free. For a side order of sea views, head to Gonu Bar & Grill, while never-fail pasta dishes and perfectly crisp pizzas will entice you to chic Italian Sapore. Tempted by Thai? Enjoy bold flavours at Taste. Big appetites will find their match at Views’ nightly-themed buffets.

The Activities

Where to begin? Outside of a dedicated kids’ club there’s much a family to enjoy together – not least a round or two of crazy golf. Take a hike through one of Fujairah’s most picturesque trails, or hit the sea for stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing, fishing, or an idyllic sunset cruise. Just don’t forget to make a splash in what is one of the UAE’s largest swimming pools.
