Cyclone Gonu hit the shores of Fujairah June 5th, 2007, causing damage to the resort’s beachfront. A comprehensive repair program saw $2m invested in a beach rejuvenation and redesign with the aim of transforming its shoreline into the ultimate haven for beach-lovers. As part of the beautification project, 100 new coconut palms were planted along the shoreline this year.
“The resort has been popular this summer with guests from our key international markets including Russia, Germany, the Gulf countries and the United Kingdom,”
said Patrick Antaki, General Manager of Le Méridien Al Aqah.
Fujairah enjoys cooler temperatures in summer, more than the other emirates, such as Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, so it has also become a popular weekend getaway for UAE residents.
“The resort has become the ultimate destination for guests, whether they are tourists soaking up the sun, diving and water-sports enthusiasts, or companies taking part in our team-building activities. It’s also an ideal location for families, who can take advantage of the Penguin club, cinema room, gaming arcade, and our special offer that kids under five dine for free,” said Antaki.
