The child-friendly hotel has its own kids’ club and pool, a watersports centre with activities such as jet skis, wakeboarding and water-skiing for the more daring, a ping-pong table, tennis and basketball court for landlubbers and a weekly schedule of complimentary and paid activities as well as child-friendly edutainment programs. It is also home to the Aqua Bounce Ajman, the first floating water-play park in the emirate.

If a destination wedding is what’s on your mind, the property’s stunning architecture, manicured gardens, a helipad facing the sea and the spectacular Topaz Ballroom, the hotel’s largest ballroom with pearl-inspired art chaplets and suspended glass details, all make for magical venues. Did we mention they have a personal wedding butler and an events team dedicated to each and every one of your bridal events.

Mixing business with pleasure is easy at this five-star property too with reception venues of various capacities that are nothing like average stuffy meeting rooms – all five indoor meeting venues offer floor-to-ceiling views of azure waters instead, right from Emerald, a banquet setup that can sit a 160 people, to Peridot, a fixed boardroom.
