Fairmont for Fujairah

November 2011

FUJAIRAH’S luxury Mina Al Fajer Resort development has entered its final phase with the award of the construction contract for the five-star Fairmont Hotel project overlooking the marina in Dibba.

Mina Al Fajer Real Estate, a leading property developer specialising in luxury projects and resorts, has awarded the deal to the reputable contracting firm Intermass Engineering and Contracting Company.

“The Fairmont Hotel represents the final phase of the Mina Al Fajer Development that also features retail outlets, restaurants and a range of other services to serve residents and visitors to Fujairah,” says a spokesman for the development.

Located at the foot of the Hajar Mountains, the 777,025-sq-ft mixed-use project is the brainchild of Mina Al Fajer Real Estate. Apart from the five-star hotel, the resort boasts a marina, sea-facing mountain villas and luxury apartments.

The Fairmont will have 193 standard rooms and one Presidential suite as well as four restaurants including the Tapas Bar, Pronto Café, lobby bar and an all-day dining restaurant. Other facilities include a swimming pool, spa, gymnasium and a conference centre.

The hotel will be managed by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, which will also manage the rental of Solarium villas that are available on lease to the general public. The completion of the hotel and adjacent marina will present residents the opportunity for various outdoor leisure activities.

Ahmed bin Ali Al Dhaheri, vice-chairman of Mina Al Fajer Real Estate, says: “Fujairah’s new oasis is well on track for bringing in travellers to the emirate.”

“This development site is rather rare and unique. The completion of the man-made marina, the scenic location nestled in the Hajar mountain chain and the proposed Fairmont hotel will go a long way in making this a very special resort,” he adds.

Intermass, with its wide experience and nationwide capabilities, has been involved in an impressive range of prestigious projects working with property developers, private investors, government authorities and local departments all over the region.

Mahfouz Shuhaiber, managing partner at Intermass, comments: “Our growth and expansion over the years has enabled us to meet the various requirements and demands of each client, and we look forward to working with Mina Al Fajer on a project that will unquestionably become a highlight on our portfolio.”

With the appointment of the construction contractor, the hotel project is set to be complete in one year. The apartments and Solarium Villas within the development have already been handed over to buyers while the handing over of the Mountain villas is currently in process.

The Dh500-million ($136 million) Mina Al Fajer Resort development presents GCC nationals with a sustainable mid- to long-term investment opportunity in an exclusive residence or simply a holiday home. Being developed under the vision of Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, chairman of Mina Al Fajer, the luxury development that is nestled between the mountains and sea is purpose-built for high net-worth individuals.
