Just spent a lovely evening catching up with Rodger, a friend from when I first worked in Abu Dhabi and was very good to have some adult conversation after the marathon of a day we have had. The amazing power of gin meant I was able to combat my sleep deprived state and we had some good chats about the old days and the brushes with the law we had out here, including the time a ...
... three kids in tow does have its benefits when you get upgraded to an executive suite. Bathroom itself is the size of a usual hotel room, while the espresso maker in the room is already proving a valuable addition for me:).

... Tarago's here have no brakes and no indicators though. Must have to pay extra for those.
Didn't spot any landmarks on the way in, other than Hyde Park, but we did see a sign for the suburb Notting Hill and some familliar street names.
The hotel is just as it looked online - which is great, and in a lovely area. A nice quiet street, with big plane trees a couple of blocks back from Hyde Park where big white ...

As for the food we had no real idea what we were eating but tried a bit of everything. It was delicious. Nat and I enjoyed the sweets, a dry gulub juman type treat. We departed around 9 for home, getting some spectacular views of the city along the way. Tomorrow, we head up the worlds tallest ...

We even had the chance to ride one and nearly got flung off as the camel bent down at the end…. not the most comfortable of creatures to ride! After dressing up like the locals for some photos, the evening finished with traditional dancing including a performance from a scantily clad belly dancer (a bit unexpected given ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kempinski Hotel Ajman
We have just come back after ten days. The hotel was fabulous, the staff were some of the best that we have met in the world, nothing was too much trouble. If you are looking for somewhere to chill out and be pampered then this is the place. Although it is 40 minutes from dubai city centre there was a free bus and also we found we could hire a car and driver for the equivalent of £7.00 per hour which was fantastic, he took us to all of the tourist places, waitied while we shopped and eat, a day we will never forget and all for less than £50, most sightseing trips cost more than this. We will definetly be going back next year.
We have just returned from the Ajman Kempinski Dubai and it was fantastic if you want to just laze by the pool have a stroll on the beach and swim in the sea, which I have to say was so warm it was like stepping into a bath.And the food was out of this world we went half board so every night we served fabulous dishes ranging from Indian to buffet style meal's better than any hotel we have been to before.The room's are kept very clean fresh linen everyday! The people that work at this hotel are the freindliest and most helpful we have ever come across nothing was to much trouble.It is a bit of a trek into the city but we used the courtesy bus to get in and a taxi for our return and that cost only £10 for the four of us. We shall one day without a doubt be returning to this little peace of paradise.
Just returned from eight night stay at Ajman Kempinski, hotel itself very good although think probably more four star than five. Chinese and Italian restaurants excellent, especially chef Andrea who made Lobster salad, pancakes and Creme Brulee especially for us, excellent with the children providing special meals for those who did not fancy the menu.
Stayed here for 4 days and found it to be excellent in every way. Great choice of bars, restuarants with all the faciliteies that you associate with a 5 star rating. But what really stole the show for me was the location - away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai City and quite literally an "oasis in the desert". The beach was spotless and the staff were only too pleased to help.
I am already planning another trip to Dubai and I will definatley book a room at this great Hotel. - Well done to all the staff and management!!!
Having stayed in a Kempinski hotel previously we knew the standards would would be good and we were not dissapointed. We also did our research so we knew Ajman is a distance from Jumeirah etc. However taxis are cheap abour 40 Dh ( £6.50) to Diera and 80 Dh (£13.00) to Jumeirah. Also food and drink in the hotel is much cheaper than Dubai, eg a bottle of corona at Jumeirah Beach Hotel 28 Dh (£4.50) at Ajam Kempinski 15 Dh (£2.40). The Indian restaraunt is truly superb and again very reasonable especially the Friday night buffet, but we also found the Chinese and Italian both to be very good. The beach is excellent and genuinely private with the added bonus of watching the ships sail in and out of the creek. We would reccomend upgrading to an executive club room as you get fruit, pastries, juice, tea and coffee free all day aswell as free alcoholic drinks and food between 5pm - 7pm. Reccomended things to do; Afternoon tea at The Burj Al Arab (expensive, but what an experience!!), snorkelling off Snoopy Island (A long 2 hr drive, but worth it) and Dinner at The Boardwalk in Deira (Good value food in a fantastic Creekside location).
Have just returned after 5 nights at the Ajman. Hotel was nice, stayed in a Cabana room which was in an ideal location but could do with updating. Food in the Indian and Italian restuarants was excellent however be careful of the dress code in the Italian we werent made aware men had to wear closed shoes. Hotel was clean and tied however a little to far out if you are going to see the sights of Dubai. The free bus is handy however the ride was horrific. Driving in Dubai is a nightmare so I wouldnt hire a car. This is our second visit to Dubai and although I would recomend the UAE if you want to be where it is happening stay closer to Jumeriah Beach, you will spend more on the hotel but will save in taxi's and stress, although taxi's are very cheap. I would recomend the hotel if you just want to get away for a break and you dont mind where you are, however if you want some fellow English people, this isnt the one to go to, mainly German.
A bit of a let down
The hotel and grounds were lovely. The cabana room we had by the pool was a great location for the children but the room itself was small, dated and the shower stall needed a good clean. The children's play area had a swingset but no swings and a few seesaws and a slide. Not much. Also, be forewarned - the kid's club is only available in the summer, not in February. This wasn't stated anywhere. The Italian restaurant doesn't take children under five. It's a great resort for couples, but not really geared for children.
Dodgy Dive Centre but the rest is top notch
Spent 2 weeks in the resort. This hotel is superb for people who want a relaxing time in Dubai. Its quite far from the city centre (45mins) but there are regular free hotel buses. The hotel staff are superb and very helpful. I would like to thank them for making excellent holiday. They arranged all our excursions which were all excellent. The rooms were nice and sea views were really something. Its not over crowded and the private beach is well looked after. This resort would get the full 5 stars apart from the dive centre there was poorly run. Admittedly it had only just opened but we got shunted around and spent time waiting for the organiser and we did give them plenty of notice. This was a real shame but it did not spoil the holiday.
Just returned from a five night break at the Ajman Kempinski hotel, my wife and i travelled with another couple and all four of us found the resort to be fantastic.
we spent nine days at the ajman kempinski in 2001, i found it to be a bit of a mixed bag, the food was excellent, the service was good, but the hotel lacked atmosphere, the entrance is staggering and spacious but we found that there were not enough settees and armchairs in the public rooms, this made it feel like a rail station but a luxurious one!
