Ajman is planning a major tourism project at Al Zorah.

India's Oberoi Group will manage and operate the first luxury resort within a AED4bn ($1.1bn) mixed-use development in Ajman, it was announced on Sunday.

Al Zorah Development Company, a joint venture between the Government of Ajman and Solidere International, said it has signed an agreement with the hotel operator.

Al Zorah Resorts is billed to become an exclusive tourism destination on Ajman's northern coast, with the waterfront frontage spreading over 12km, including a mangrove area with a nature reserve rich with birds and fish.

The Oberoi Group's subsidiary, Oberoi Hotels & Resorts will manage the world-class luxury resort, which will feature 113 guestrooms and suites. The hotel will span 100,000 sq m with 290m of beachfront.

The hotel will be designed by Italian architect Piero Lissoni, a statement said, adding that it will also include an all-day dining restaurant, a beach restaurant and a spa.

The Al Zorah Resorts project, located on a land area of 5.4 million sq m, is being built by Six Construct which has commenced on-site construction and the project is scheduled for completion by summer 2015.

The luxury Al Zorah Resort was designed as the crown jewel of the AED220bn Al Zorah City development, Ajman’s largest project, but was suspended after the collapse of the emirate’s real estate market in late-2008.
