TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Sept. 14, 2010) – The new resort development Fairmont Mina Al Fajer will debut in the latter part of 2011, offering both leisure and corporate guests a distinctive experience along the breathtaking coastline of the Gulf of Oman. The project is being developed by UAE-based Mina Al Fajer Real Estate, LLC.
Located on the east coast of the United Arab Emirates with sweeping views of the Gulf and lauded for its natural beauty set against the backdrop of the historic Hajar Mountains, the project will consist of an 88-room hotel and the Fairmont Estates – 13 four-bedroom solarium villas slated for completion spring 2011. Guests will enjoy dedicated meeting facilities, a selection of dining venues, Fairmont’s signature Willow Stream Spa, a marina and a private beach. The mixed-use development will also contain mountain villas and marina apartments, for additional residential offerings.
“We are extremely pleased to add such a popular option for travelers in the region to our collection,” said Chris Cahill, President, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and COO, Fairmont Raffles Hotels International. “Fairmont Mina Al Fajer will complement our properties in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Cairo and will further strengthen our brand recognition in this very important market along with future key locations in Makkah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Muscat, Oman.”
With natural beauty unmatched in the region, Fujairah features breathtaking mountains and valleys that sweep down into a beautiful palm-fringed coastal plain, and the destination experiences warm temperatures with seasonal differences.
