This wonderful country prides itself on their fantastic hospitality and on giving people a luxurious experience. The UAE perfectly incorporates modernity and luxury into their traditional practices allowing people to experience the beauty of their culture.

When most think of the UAE, their minds immediately go towards Dubai as it is the central tourist city in the country. However, often tourists do not realise that just outside is a new world of magnificent resorts and exquisite scenery. From beautiful mountain ranges and breathtaking deserts to relaxing beaches with crystal clear waters, visitors can explore the other side of the UAE away from the cities.

Hidden away in the Al Hajar mountain range valleys, the Fairmont Fujairah lies on the coastal line of Dibba, Fujairah's largest city.
