Fujairah’s Amazing Coastline

I took my rellies for a day at Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort this week for some sun and some pampering.

My visitors remarked on two things—the friendliness of the staff (I am not being paid to say this but the recruiting and PR teams are doing a good job) and the number of people we heard with European accents (especially German and Russian) as we swam and sat around the pool.

This week Patrick Antaki, the hotel’s General Manager, stated that Le Meridien team is returning to strut its stuff at the International Tourism Exchange in Berlin this month. Eager to maintain its title of the ‘Middle East’s Leading Beach Resort’ at the World Travel Awards for the second year, the hotel will be showcasing its facilities and its superb location on the Fujairah coastline.

By the number and sound of the European guests plus the friendliness of Le Meridien staff, attendance at such exhibitions is paying off.

Fujairah has one of the leading beach resorts in the world. The magnet of Le Meridien indicates that one of the greatest assets of Al Fujairah is its coastline.
