Activity on Fujairah Skyline
Several years ago Dubai’s growth was measured by the number of cranes. Despite talk of a financial recession there are still many cranes to be seen around Fujairah and hotels and apartment towers continue to rise.
This is all part of the vision of His Highness, the Ruler of Fujairah, to increase the number of hotel and apartment rooms to cater for the growth in tourism and the burgeoning Fujairah population.
A 5 star hotel and apartment being built by the Al Sharfa Company commenced in May 2009 and has been making steady progress with 250 people working on the site.
See the pictures illustrating the progress that had been made by October of last year (2009).
This project is due to be handed over to the client in March or April of 2011.
Facilities at Completion
When it is completed the 350 hotel rooms and 100 apartments will have some of the most stunning views one can get in the Emirates. The morning views of the sun rising over the Arabian Sea will be spectacular.
In addition to a spa, a swimming pool and other facilities typical of a modern hotel, this complex will have a beach within a breakwater and be within a quick walk of an ever-growing marina.
Being built on reclaimed land residents could easily throw a fishing line out their hotel windows and pull up fish for their breakfast. Alternatively they could take their boat out just a few metres where fishermen regularly pull good-sized fish out of the water.
The marina (with its boating activities and restaurants), the Fujairah base for Seawings, the Tourist Night Souq, the main street shops and all the life of the Fujairah corniche (including the world famous bull butting), will be close at hand to hotel guests and apartment dwellers in this new complex.
