The Rocky Mountain Trip to Fujeirah & Below

Twice the fun and twice the sun. The first time visit to Fujeirah was an exciting and unexpected fun, but the second time was an escapade of adventure.

Twice we stayed at the Oceanic Hotel in Khorfakkan. Khorfakkan is in Fujeirah but it is under the ruling of the emirate of Sharjah. However, if you drive a few meters away, it is once again …

... I realised they were FROM Barry!! Apparently they took a private taxi tour. The driver took them to a mosque then to an old fort before visiting another mosque. After seeing even an older fort they finished up at a souk where the taxi driver’s relatives had stalls. ‘If we had have known we would just be visiting mosques and forts we wouldn't have bothered. We have forts and mosques back in Barry, we do!’ The people we have met on this trip are nothing if not ...

Apparently it was colder than usual here today - an average of only 25C during the day, but it did feel a little cooler along the Corniche. The Corniche is basically a promenade that runs for about 5 miles or so alongside a man-made public beach, although that description doesn't really do it justice. The strip of land between the footpath and the beach is landscaped and there are strategically ...

... Here, we also visited the oldest and smallest mosque, the Bidiyah Mosque, found in the Emirates. Above it, was a fort dating back several hundred years served to protect the area during the "pirates time" and the tribal wars. The landscape is dotted with similar forts and watch towers to protect the land from possible invaders.

Our last stop was a photo opportunity at the Bithnah fort in the small oasis of ...

... 8211; or very little anyway. So went down to customer services and they offered me another cabin – asked to see it first - wise move as it happens! Instead of my lovely mid ship cabin, they were offering one right at the back, last one in the line, with most of the balcony blocked by bits of ship! Restricted view wasn’t in it! I’d rather put up with the leaky bathroom! Told them it wasn’t the same quality and they said that was all they had. ...

    Relaxing Stay at Oceanic Hotel

    I have stayed twice in this property and I like the rooms as it is neat and decent.
    As you went up to the floors - to your rooms from the elevator you will be met by a 3-way alley which are all leading to the rooms. They have a garden view which actually has a direct view to the main road and facing KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken). They have the ocean and mountain view which is superb, and looking below from these rooms is their almost-Olympic size swimming pool.

    The rooms are cozy, dark colored wood frames and LED TV's. There are a few options in the minibar and the tea coffee facilities are complimentary which includes a couple of bottled water. The toilets are simple, decent, and comfortable to be in. All rooms are smoking, except the ground floor sections, which are all restaurant lounges, reception, and the lobby.

    This hotel does not served alcohol since it is under the jurisdiction of the emirate of Sharjah which follows the policy of KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).

    Since we only had breakfast, the breakfast menu is alright, except for the fruits being served. They could have served more seasonal fruits such as mangoes and watermelon, but instead they are serving pineapple which lacks sweetness and sliced bananas which are dipped in the water but it did not help maintain the original color of the bananas instead its blackish and unattractive. For all I know, bananas are served as whole and not sliced. Breakfast is served in their Al Murjan Restaurant which faces the Gulf of Oman, which makes a fascinating breakfast view along with the brewed coffee.

    The swimming pool is temperature controlled, very well maintained. They have an all-day watching life guards in both swimming pools and the beach. They have towels and neat sun beds. Their recreational facilities are quite okay; they have floor chess board where if you wish to play, you have to carry the characters to make a move. The beach is not that enticing as it is not clear considering that it is across the free port area located almost across the resort, though the whole shoreline stretch is beige sand.

    Overall service is friendly and friendly staff, can't complain I say, and besides I had no demands to be exact since I only stayed over the weekend with a group of friends.
