My wife and I spent 3 days and 2 nights at Nour Arjaan by Rotana in Fujairah. This is a four-star luxury hotel apartment located along the main road in the emirate of Fujairah and is a 2-hour bus ride from Dubai. If you travel via private vehicle, you can reach the hotel a little over an hour’s drive.
This was our first time to visit the emirate and upon arriving, it gave us a very laid back vibe which is great for a relaxing vacation. The city is located at the east coast of the UAE.

We were able to check in their other chain (Burjuman Arjaan) and we were glad to have stayed there. This hotel apartment in Fujairah wasn’t any less of an experience.
Upon arriving at the hotel lobby, the staff quickly assisted us and made us feel comfortable. We were directed to our room right away.
My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the arrangement in the bedroom prepared by the staff. Petal roses on the bed in the shape of a heart and some were scattered on the floor and room. This was a lovely romantic touch which really exceeded our expectations and provided a memorable hotel experience.

Kitchen, Dining Area & Living Room
Nour Arjaan is a hotel apartment that has a spacious living and dining area. So if you have plans of preparing some dishes, you may do so. Don’t worry if you forget some cooking ingredients as there’s a Lulu hypermarket in front of the hotel.

Bodylines and Fitness center
Here’s a peek at the gym area of Nour Arjaan. They have ample equipment for cardio and strength training. They also have a sauna and steam bath available.
Bodylines Fitness & Wellness Center
We tried to schedule a massage spa session but it was fully booked at the time. If you have plans to get a massage, better if you call for reservation early.
Kids Play Area
For families bringing their kids, you can drop by their kids room where your children can have fun playing. The size of the play area is modest, but it’s great that Nour Arjaan offers these amenities for families on vacation.
Flippers Kids Club
For the whole stay, we ate at Murjan restaurant located at the 1st floor. They offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets that range from Arabic, Asian, Italian and International cuisines.
I’ll write a more detailed review in another blogpost, but the offered dishes were very appetizing and something we didn’t expect to be quite good.

Pool and Aquarius Bar
The pool deck offers an interesting view of Fujairah. We didn’t swim in the pool and opted to lie on the sun decks to soak up some rays.
If you’re craving for the beach, you can ask the reception to schedule a service to take you to their partner resort which is around 45 minutes from the hotel.

DIY Afternoon Tour of the City
Since my wife and I were new to the emirate, we did a very short afternoon tour of the nearby Corniche beach and the Sheikh Zayed Majlis. We hired a taxi to take us to these places. Will write about our experience in another blogpost.

How to Get There
- We took a bus from the Union bus station (outside Union metro station). Fare is 25 AED for the hour ride. Just tell the driver you will stop at the Etisalat bus stop.
- Upon going back, we hired a taxi cab where you can pay 40 AED per person (maximum of 4 persons) to have a faster ride from Fujairah to Dubai. It took us just an hour to get back. The taxi station is located on the same main highway. Tell the driver to drop you off at the bus station near Choithrams supermarket.
