We spent two weeks in this great place. We enjoyed the wonderful beach (not crowded at all!), the hotel and its great hospitality! The hotel, the service and the restaurants are top. The purpose of our trip was an Ayurveda Treatment (Panchacarma) and to our surprise the standard is up to Kerala level. We shall certainly return! EMN, Zurich, 13.2.2018
Formally a Kempinski hotel but now under new management. Spent 10 nights at this hotel and never really felt the need to leave it. There is a free shuttle bus into Dubai 3 times a day if you do feel the need but the better option is to relax on the fine sandy beach. Shade parasols are well spaced provided lots of privacy. Who needs more shopping malls that defy which city you are in? It is the same old names you find everywhere. And the prices are not very attractive - if you do have the need to shop! Do you really want a Debenhams, M&S, Waitrose,Carrefour, etc experience - rather than the local souk? The hotel has good restaurants offering great food choices. Breakfast has a generous spread to cover most options and a popular fresh orange juicing machine. The rooms are comfortable and with complimentary fresh still water and coffee pods provided for a machine that can also make tea. The staff are well trained and helpful. The gym is a little tired. If you fancy bowling the hotel has its own bowling alley. The northern Emirates offer a chance to escape to the sun economically in the depths of winter and avoid the "madness" & "falseness" that is Dubai. And the Ajman hotel will do this for you.
I have started making this a routine end of the week visit. It is a nice restaurant with good service, good food and a very nice atmosphere. I have not tried rooms in the hotel but have used the facilities on many occasions. The pool / Spa is good, the restaurants inside are nice, but my choice would be the ZanziBar. It is well worth a try if you are in the vicinity.
We have just returned from a fabulous 5 days staying at The Ajman Hotel (formerly under the Kempinski brand but recently taken over by Blazon). I cannot speak highly enough of the level of service received from the staff throughout our entire holiday. From the moment we checked in (at almost midnight on arrival), to the moment we left, we met with helpful and polite staff who went the extra mile to make our stay a memorable one. We paid a little extra for a Superior room (406) which had fantastic views of the Arabian sea from the balcony. Tastefully decorated with an enormous bed, soft cotton duvet covers and pillowcases which were changed every day of our stay, as were the towels. Refreshments in the room consisted of tea, coffee pods for the coffee machine and bottled water which was a nice touch and much appreciated. The beach was something else! Swaying palm trees, white sands, clear waters and plenty of comfortable sun beds with shades if you desired. A clearly defined safe area for swimming and a life guard on duty was a big plus. A lovely swimming pool (with pool bar) and just behind a shallow kiddies pool covered with a big sail to help keep the sun at bay was the alternative, all with changing facilities for men and women a few steps away. We had breakfast included as part of the package with British Airways, and each day there was so much choice! Hot/cold buffet, plenty of fruit, pastries, fresh bread, yogurts, cereal, cheeses, meats, hot coffee/tea/fruit teas etc. Basically everything and everyone catered for. A fresh orange juice machine squeezed whole oranges in front of you giving freshest tastiest juice you will ever try. There were a number of restaurants on site but our favourite was Bukhara (authentic Indian cuisine) and Sabellas (organic Italian). We also had the Arabian afternoon tea which was well priced at AED 130 for two, which was so varied and delicious and plenty of it. Part of the attraction of choosing this Hotel was that it had a free shuttle bus service to Dubai several times a day, stopping en route to the Blue Souk in Sharjah, Deira, Dubai Mall and Emirates Mall. The outward journey would need to be booked in advance at the reception desk, but they did stress that the return journey would not be guaranteed. However, taxis are reasonable and we used them several times to get back to the hotel. Be aware that driving standards in the UAE are different to what you may be used to at home. Also, at peak times in the morning and afternoon, traffic jams in and out of Dubai can make your journey back to Ajman longer, but we think it was worth it. Overall and to sum up, the Hotel offers a wonderful alternative to staying in Dubai City and we would be happy to stay again without hesitation.
Spent a great week at the hotel. Perfect location for a sunny beach hotel. Brilliant beach and pool. We had half board (plus the drinks package). Lots of choice at breakfast and a choice for dinner, either the buffet which had themed evenings, on site Indian (which was great) and Italian (great menu but didn’t try). Hotel could do with some updating in places but thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would love to come back again!
Usually we write our reviews upon departure to civer all aspects of the stay. We booked a Kempinki Ajman. A few days before our planned trip we received a mail informing us that starting January 2018 it is no longer managed by Kempinski. And here we are: a smmothless check in. We really appreciated being seated instead of standing at a counter. Front desk team very professional and forthcoming. Karin, thank you for your thorough follow up on each request. Housekeeping very effecient. The rooms are OK. Maybe a lighter touch would suit the beach ambiance. We used some if the outlets: ZanziBar an example of successful management. A very young lady Elena and her team with an eye for details. Bravo. The pool bar and theur team very attentive and a guard is there all the time. Good approach fir security perception. Thanks for making our holiday start so amazing
We stayed at the Kempinski in the run up to the change of ownership This was a return visit and the hotel did not disappoint The staff are excellent and very attentive in particular the Zanzibar crew lead by Elena, prince,Samuel and Prakesh. Let's hope that the standards under the new ownership are maintained. We are returning in March and looking forward to it already
The hotel has just changed hands and will be renamed but was the Kempinski at the time of this visit. The strong points: Amazing beach. The sand sea and in particular the lack of a crowded feel at peak season make this hotel very special indeed (see photo). No real need to rush down to reserve a space when you wake. Well staffed with friendly professionals. Very international staff from Philippines to Nepal to Tanzania. Good food. The Indian Bukhara is especially good, but as is the Hotel buffet serving very good lunch salads and evening barbecue (esp the Arabic grill night). Bars. Good beach bar and first floor cafe with good coffee and cocktails. Security. The hotel makes a good effort here with staff monitoring both internally and externally. The weak points: Rooms are all (or mostly) sea facing but we were not offered the best choice despite beach because being first visitors. The Hotel is old and feels it, and is in need of an overhaul. For example, the ground floor bar is very disappointing and some bits and pieces in our room were falling off. The Italian restaurant is very disappointing but having lived in Italy for 10 years perhaps I am too demanding. But this is a place one wants to return to. I would be back in a hurry if I could choose a better interconnecting family room. Hoping that the new owners choose to upgrade rather than ‘cut’. Best wishes!
Di]espite somehow outdated exterior this hotel has been our best place to stay up to date. Impeccably clean and comfortable it is run by a professional team. Food is delicious and nicely served. Staff is friendly and efficient. With injoyed every moment of our stay
Like most of high class hotels in the UAE, and especially when it is a Kempinski, the standard is very high. The staff is extremely helpful and the service is without any fault. The hotel is already 30years old and requires some renovation (furniture, pool ) in order to keep a high class Niveau.
