The smallest of the seven Emirates, Ajman lies on the west coast just north of Dubai. Its coastline is rimmed with luxury hotels, each with their own private stretch of uncrowded white sands, making Ajman a perfect destination for a relaxing beach break.
Watersports are plentiful, with stand up paddleboards, windsurfing, jet skiing and banana boat rides all on offer. The bustling waterfront promenade, known as the Corniche, is a popular place to stroll or stop for a bite to eat at one of the numerous cafes and restaurants. It’s especially lively at the weekend, when events take place and locals gather for picnics and barbecues. Another great place to wander and dine is Ajman Marina, as well as Marsa Ajman, a palm-lined promenade with a variety of cafes and restaurants.
The Ajman Museum, which is housed in an 18th century fort, provides a compelling glimpse into the emirate’s past and its fascinating artefacts include centuries-old manuscripts, weaponry and models of wooden dhows. Other notable attractions include Aminah Bint Ahman Al Ghurair Grand Mosque, the Ajman Fish Market, Al Murabba Watchtower and Ajman Qubes, where young entrepreneurs have used recycled shipping containers to develop their ideas and set up restaurants, cafes, an art gallery and even a spa.
Also worthy of a visit is Al Zorah National Reserve, a vibrant ecosystem made up of mangroves, turquoise lagoons and sandy beaches. This wildlife haven is home to nearly 60 species of bird including pink flamingo, egret and heron. The best way to explore the mangroves is by kayak, and the calm waters and network of channels make it suitable even for novice paddlers. Al Zorah is where you’ll also find the stunning Al Zorah Golf Club, while families will love Funtastico with its exhilarating variety of rides, attractions and games or, enjoy Ajman Pearl to learn about the pearling industry in the region.
For an authentic shopping experience visit the recently expanded and refurbished Souq Saleh and the Gold Souq, which are part of a heritage path leading from the Corniche to the Ajman Museum. Here, you can shop for souvenirs and gifts whilst wandering among the warren of small shops. Alternatively, the Ajman City Center has a selection of lifestyle and fashion stores along with a cinema and selection of restaurants.
Just 90 minutes’ drive from Ajman is Masfout, a small landlocked enclave surrounded by the Hajar Mountains. Its elevated altitude brings cooler temperatures and the rugged backdrop attracts hikers, outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. Also close by is Manama, an agricultural district located in the plains at the foothills of the Hajar Mountains and known for its scenery, wild honey and historic fortresses.
Beach suite - All inclusive
Escape to these Indian Ocean gems and prepare to be dazzled by flawless white powdery beaches enveloped by shimmering turquoise waters, vivid coral reefs and some of the most incredible underwater life on our planet. It's the ultimate beach escape.
The 1,200 islands of the Maldives are spread out over 26 coral atolls and every resort has its own private island with one for every occasion and budget be it romantic barefoot luxury, tiny hideaways, adult-only havens or larger all inclusive resorts with abundant facilities for all ages to enjoy. The scenic splendour isn't blotted by high rise hotels as accommodation is usually in low rise buildings, rustic garden or beachfront bungalows and overwater villas.
If you're not lazing on the sands chances are you'll be taking a dip in the warm, clear waters or perhaps trying your hand at watersports, such as kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. You'll find dive centres at most resorts for those wishing to explore the renowned underwater coral gardens that are home to turtles, manta rays, sharks and brightly coloured fish of all shapes and sizes. If diving's not for you, choose a resort with a house reef accessible from the beach and within a few steps off the shore you can view the wonders of the deep with just a snorkel and mask.
Many islands offer cruises to uninhabited islands for a true Robinson Crusoe experience; fishing trips in search of the catch of the day or sunset cruises around uninhabited islands which is a blissful way to end the day. Excursions are also available from many of the speedboat accessible resorts to the tiny capital, Male, where there's shopping opportunities as well as the chance to see real life away from the tourist islands.
Over the years the Maldives has become synonymous with peace and serenity that comes from being far away from urban life. Spas are a natural extension of that tranquility, ensuring an even deeper sense of utter relaxation and as each of our featured resorts has its own spa why not indulge and treat yourself to some pampering or rejuvenation.
Whilst most resorts have bars, some live music and a few larger ones even have small nightclubs, the Maldives is not a destination for party animals. For many, evenings in the Maldives offer the chance to sit back enjoy tropical themed drinks and mouthwatering cuisine in simply stunning surroundings. Look out for our all inclusive hotels, which provide an opportunity to do as much or as little as you like and are perfect if you like to plan your holiday budget.
