Al Aqqah, Fujairah. United Arab Emirates




    We are different, we know it and we are proud of it. As the United Arab Emirates continues to grow at an unprecedented rate we are lucky as a resort to help preserve our core value and vision for what a true beach experience resort is supposed to be. In our eyes, we want our guest’s to immerse themselves in the natural surroundings and enjoy the pristine white sand beach as they discover the unique one of a kind Snoopy Island emerge from the Indian Ocean.


    Nestled among the Indian Ocean and the Hajar Mountains, Sandy Beach features 102 rooms, a rooftop panoramic bar with a seafood restaurant that offers a dining patio and views over the famous Snoopy Island. Sandy Beach Diving Center is located right on the beach, and offers a range of courses for beginners and professionals. Full-day and overnight trips can be organized to visit the diving sites of the Indian Ocean. A temperature-controlled infinity pool with epic views is available at Sandy Beach, and children can enjoy playing in the SnoopySplash waterpark. There is also a night club offering night entertainment, as well a live karaoke band at the Ocean View Bar. The room locations range from oceanfront and Snoopy Island view to verdant jungle gardens, whether you are an independent explorer, a couple or a family their spacious rooms and private chalets will immerse you in a relaxing environment as you end your day on the beach. Sandy Beach Resort is a 30-minute drive from Fujairah city and 1.5 hours from Dubai.

    As one of the first beach resorts in the UAE, in 1978 Sandy Beach was merely a place where divers would come and rent one of the 10 still standing private chalets. Today, the secret of Al Aqah Fujairah as one of the best shorelines in the country has gotten out and more than ever before the area has been transformed into a world-class leisure destination. With such change, one would expect the free-spirited motel to evolve into a towering hotel where capitalistic ideals strive; but luckily for us we wanted to create diversity for our guests and preserve our true identity which is to create an experience which is defined by the true outdoors and minmalism.The Sandy Beach experience is a memory, an adventure and a dose of relaxation, it is a getaway, an escape from the chaotic loud cities of the United Arab Emirates.

    I do not know where to begin. The most incredible facilities, the most welcoming staff and the most gorgeous of views. I had phoned the resort earlier this week after a trip to Greece got cancelled and informed them that I was planning to change the birthday plans from a true "Vacation" to a "Staycation" - at first I assumed it would be just the regular type of treatment, but I was wrong. From the early check in, to the addition of many free perks, to decorating our dinner table, to making sure we had a late check out (since we stayed up till 7AM enjoying the sunrise) - everything was absolutely PERFECT. I was offered a renovated room with a sea view and I was pleasantly surprised to learn the lobster we consumed was caught just that day! I strongly recommended this to my entire family and so on the second day, my sister had checked in with her best friend and we enjoyed going snorkeling and got to see the most amazing sights, including sea urchins and ... SEA TURTLES! The kids enjoyed the upgraded splash pad which is SOOO fun! I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND this resort and please ensure you try all the facilities and if you like coconut; have a coconut mojito at the pool overlooking the most amazing island (SNOOPY ISLAND) The best part was that they abided by social distancing laws and I personally saw the entire staff getting sent for testing as a requirement (biweekly!)

    Great place especially for families. Stayed in a chalet which was quirky and really enjoyed the bbq facilities. The staff were all very helpful and friendly.

    Beach is gorgeous. Snoopy island is absolutely phenomenal when the waves permit snorkeling. It's on the other side of the mountains, so the temperature is normally a good 5-10 degrees cooler than Dubai. Food was tasty, absolutely no complaints. Staff are incredibly friendly.

    Our favourite place to stay in the UAE has had a facelift with a beautiful new infinity pool and lots of other little tweaks... great showers now and the beds are always super comfy.
