If you’re looking for a perfect family getaway where you can all have the chance to relax and no one gets bored, then we can’t wait to tell you about Le Méridien Al Aqah Beach Resort in Fujairah. It has endless activities for guests of all ages and loads of dining options so even the pickiest of eaters don’t get hungry.
The hotel is set against the gorgeous backdrop of the Hajar Mountains on one side, and panoramic views of the Indian Ocean on the other and set among lush gardens. It’s made up of 218 spacious rooms, comfortably fitting two adults and two kids, and all offering beach and landscape views, making it the perfect choice for a family break away. 66 of those rooms are interconnecting to accommodate families of all sizes, and the great news is that they even provide a 50% discount on the second room if booked for the kids.
Right, let’s talk about activities. For families who enjoy a bit of adventure, Le Méridien has an on-site Dive Centre that offers how-to-dive courses as well as daily dive trips to the region’s best sites, exploring coral reefs or old shipwrecks. For the adrenaline junkies, pack the hiking boots as just a short distance away from the hotel there are plenty of hike trails to be conquered. Or if you don’t want to leave the hotel, swim, snorkel, and discover the true beauty of the Indian Ocean at the resort’s private beach or the hotel’s pool – which is one of the largest on the East Coast.
Le Meridien’s Family Kids Club caters to younger children with a wonderful range of toys and different areas to explore as well as a dedicated splash pad. There are even treasure hunts to ignite the youngest of minds. For older ones, teens can opt for various activities to make their time at the resort more exciting and adventurous too. They can choose between a spot of mini golf, table tennis, and badminton or head along to the teen’s cinema – there’s plenty to keep them occupied!
As the kids are kept entertained, why not unwind and take an hour or two off at their beautiful spa. Spa Al Aqah’s therapists will unknot even the tightest of shoulders – especially if, like us, you’re constantly carrying a toddler. They will relax your muscles and revitalise your senses with treatments like facials and body therapies. You will be sure to leave feeling very zen!
With more than five restaurants and bars, you’re sure to find something you will love. All outlets even serve up a children’s menu, so the whole family is happy. Gonu Bar & Grill is the signature beach-front restaurant where you can enjoy surf and turf. Sapore offers a chic ambiance with its authentic Italian dishes. Taste is a unique combo of Asian flavours with Indian and Thai cuisine, whilst Baywatch restaurant keeps beachgoers and pool lovers hydrated with a vast drinks selection. Finally, Views, the all-day restaurant, offers an extensive buffet selection for breakfast, lunch, and themed dinners throughout the week.
Catering to everyone’s needs and budgets, Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort offers a variety of deals to choose from, including a Half Board package transforming your visit into a gourmet staycation with a spacious sea-facing room including breakfast and dinner at Views restaurant, with prices starting from AED 558++ for a family of 4 – what a steal!
