Titled "Secret Emirates: Exquisite hotel and tented villas", the writer highlights that "Rows of neatly arranged teak loungers and umbrellas are undisturbed by humans and a beach volleyball net stands stock-still in the breezeless air. The sun-bleached sand dazzles, as soft as talc and scalding our feet as we wade into the bath-warm waters of the Arabian Gulf. Welcome to the Oberoi Beach Resort Al Zorah in the UAE, or more specifically in Ajman. Oberoi's arrival on the scene denotes a shift for this lesser-known Emirate. It is also somewhat of a mood swing for the Oberoi Group, an Indian hotel brand best known for heritage glamour."
Emphasising upon the design element at The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zorah, the writer says "The Italian designer Lissoni Associati has chosen a pared-down, casual-contemporary aesthetic that is rare in the glitzy UAE, and unusual for Oberoi. Low-rise cubist buildings house 74-sea-facing bedrooms that are high-tech and functional — floor-to-ceiling glass can be obliterated in seconds by electronic blackouts — and plainly furnished in a Scandinavian-inspired style. Fifteen Cubist villas frame the ocean views and Arabian abundance of light with slatted roofs and shutters. This is a place built for relaxation rather than activity."
