Amid the luminescent lagoons and creeks of the smallest of the seven Emirate sheikdoms is the LUX* UAE debut hideaway, Al Zorah. This sleek destination resort is an easy 40 minutes by car from Dubai International Airport and a swift 10 minutes from Sharjah. Styled with a blend of modern Arabian grandeur and signature LUX* simplicity by hotel-architect extraordinaire Jean-Michel Gathy, the 193 rooms, suites and private villas guarantee guests contemporary glamour and toes dipped in the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf. If you’re imagining dusty desert surroundings, however, think again; Al Zorah is a lush biodiverse coastal oasis, with around 60 bird species living here – including the star-of-the-show pale pink flamingos who dwell among the mangroves. As you’d expect from LUX*, the wellness facilities are top notch, so relaxation and rejuvenation are definitely on the agenda, but with year round sun, 12 dazzling kilometres of silky sandy beach and a wealth of outdoor-adventure possibilities, there’s plenty to tempt you beyond the treatment room.
