Barely an hour’s drive away from Dubai, the newly renovated Umm Al Quwain Beach Hotel and Resort is a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. Prepare to step out of the desert and into the tropics where a laid-back holiday vibe and friendly staff are waiting to welcome you to an experience second to none!
Lush green landscaping and shaded pathways snake through a good number of well-equipped chalets, winding up to the pool and beach area where the newly opened Lumi Beach Bar overlooks the beach and ocean, welcoming patrons to an unforgettable beach experience.
Beautiful eucalyptus timber decked walkways lead up to a big timber and thatch beach bar, that was expertly built by Cape Reed LLC in a rustic looking heritage style. The bar offers loads of seating and even a couple of swings for the brave of heart!
During the day, the bar is cool and well shaded from the sun, but it’s in the evening when the natural ambience of the thatched timber structure is greatly enhanced. Soft lighting adds a gentle touch of nostalgic romance and a fairy-like sparkle, taking the bar to a whole different level as soon as the sun sets for the night.
Stunning timber pergolas flank the bar on three sides where a covering of timber laths provide welcome shade over a good number of dining and seating areas, creating an awesome spot to gather with friends and family over a couple of drinks and a bite to eat.
Completing the beach resort picture, several rustic timber daybeds are dotted along the beach, each equipped with either mattress beds or timber sun loungers. These are simply perfect (and quite frankly a must for any beach resort!) for taking a relaxed break with the gentle crashing of waves nearby.
The resort also caters for children of various ages. A range of custom-built timber structures (from a treehouse built around a tree trunk to an elevated structure with climbing walls, ladders and zipline) provide plenty of wholesome activities to keep the younger generation occupied in fun and entertainment for hours.
The Umm Al Quwain Beach Hotel and Resort truly is an idyllic beach destination, simply perfect for a quick weekend break-away or a proper holiday escape.
