Situated in the emirate of perennial sunshine and stunning white sand beaches is the Fairmont Ajman, the newest Fairmont flagship in the United Arab Emirates. The project was design by the firm Godwin Austen Johnson.
Just 30 minutes away from the bustling metropolis of Dubai known for its sightseeing, shopping and entertainment, Ajman offers a delightful contrast by inviting guests to take a gentler pace across a stretch of shoreline called the Corniche, enjoy a refreshing swim in opal hued and clear waters, and to soak in genuine Arabian traditions and hospitality.
The interiors embrace these surroundings, in both open planning and materials, whilst still reflecting the vibrant modern city on its doorstep.
The planning of each unit maximises the spectacular far reaching views and allow the spaces to flow effortlessly from one to the next.

“Ajman is renowned for its strong maritime trade and fishing heritage along with its laid back pace, and in keeping with its locality, we developed a concept that would seamlessly juxtapose these local traditional elements with fresh contemporary interiors. They wanted a hotel that would become a landmark for Ajman and there were certain guidelines we needed to follow. During the design process we worked very closely with Fairmont operators to better understand them as a brand,” says Jacinda Raniolo, who has been GAJ’s lead interior designer for various hospitality projects.
