Le Meridien Al Aqah. From Deira, Dubai (or from the airport) was a scenic 2 hour drive. We left the house at 11:35 and followed the signs to Fujairah via Sharjah. It was my first time to go to Fujairah so i was really amazed seeing the magnificent hajar mountains, for me it was like seeing yet another side of the world.
It's barely a month after our wedding day so this trip still feels like a honeymoon :)
We reached the hotel before 2pm. Check in time was 3pm and according t the receptionist we have to wait until the room is ready as there were other guests who came before us, but they did the check-in process and was served fresh orange juice and cold towel, then gave us access pass and were told that we can now start using the hotel facilities like the beach and the swimming pool. We were also offered to keep our things in the luggage room but we opted to just bring our things as we take around the resort.
THE STAFF: The reception staff didn't fail to give a welcoming smile, the valet attendant, astros bar crew and everyone were all nice. Over all I give them all an above the passing mark.
Room amenities: Tea-coffee-choco making facility/bedroom slippers, bathrobe, complimentary bottles of water a day and a welcome fruit and brownies, iron, hair dryer.
