Much has been said about the restorative effects of a visit to the beach, particularly on one’s mental health and stress levels. This is especially true in this time of pandemic. Finding a venue that is both safe and pleasurable is key to ensure the seaside getaway is truly relaxing and not a stressful experience.

All this considered, Le Méridien Al Aqah Beach Resort in Fujairah has pulled out all the stops for an unforgettable getaway, lining up a range of special offers, while maintaining all necessary health precautions.

The perfect spot for sunny staycations, the resort is offering residents and visitors alike a memorable beach experience with the "Welcome Back" offer. Guests can enjoy up to 25 per cent savings on each stay: Marriott Bonvoy members get 25 per cent off the resort’s best available rate with complimentary breakfast, while non-members can avail a 15 per cent discount. These discounts also apply to the resort’s dining options.

Guests seeking an extended holiday can book long stays at a special rate starting at Dh450 when booking five nights or more.

Honouring its ethos of delighting guests with the perfect family getaway, the iconic resort offers 66 interconnecting rooms to accommodate families of all sizes, with all sea-facing rooms and one of the largest swimming pools on the east coast.
