AJMAN – A new creekside development opened in Ajman’s Al Zorah development on Thursday (February 1), featuring a family-friendly promenade with 15 new dining outlets and recreational facilities, including a floating restaurant and a luxury yacht you can rent for a day.
“Al Zorah Marina 1 is a place where you can discover, explore and socialise with your family and friends, offering residents and tourists an idyllic waterfront destination. The unveiled development blends leisure facilities with a collection of restaurants and lounges,” said Imad Dana, CEO of Al Zorah Development Company.
Al Zorah Marina 1 offers world-class berthing services for boats and yachts between 8 and 40 metres. Boat owners can now moor, access the promenade and enjoy the new dining and recreational facilities at Marina 1. A 37-metre luxury yacht, Nordic Star is available for charter, from dockside business meetings to full day excursions, or weekend cruises.
Combining lifestyle with leisure, Al Zorah Marina 1 provides a host of entertainment venues for guests of all ages such as The Groovy Park, a family friendly food park with an outdoor cinema surrounded with themed flower-decorated food trucks reminiscent of the 1960s and 70s.
Funtastico, an outdoor amusement attraction for families and kids aged 3 to 14 years old, is filled with a range of exciting rides, attractions and games such as bumper boats, trampoline, quadricycles, bouncy slides and castles for the little ones.
Moreover, a leading multipurpose events facility, BIEL, spread over 1,800 square meters can host and cater to a wide array of events, from professional trade exhibitions to public consumer shows, from concerts and congresses to weddings and gala dinners.
The expansive, architecturally designed Al Zorah Marina 1 is home to a recreational park featuring a diverse range of food and beverage outlets such as Operation Falafel, La Villa, Kaakunada, Colorato, Sweetcorn, AquaBrown Coffee, Funtastico Snack Shack, Z lounge and cruise floating restaurant, Marsa Ajman.
“With the launch of the Marina 1, Al Zorah will further transform into a thriving community wherein our Golf Villas residents and guests can spend a relaxing getaway at the 5-star The Oberoi Beach Resort, enjoy golfing at the 18-hole Nicklaus Design championship golf course managed by Troon Golf, kayak through serene natural mangroves or moor at the marina’s berthing facilities and experience diverse recreational offerings,” Dana said.
“One can experience Ajman from an extraordinary perspective with recently introduced aerial sightseeing excursions and seaplane tours by Seawings,” explained Dana.
“UAE residents and visitors looking for an exciting vacation can enjoy motorised and non-motorised water sporting activities, pearl diving excursions, kayaking along with edutainment tours through the region’s most prized natural mangroves home to over 118 species of native marine species and migratory birds,” he said.
Marina 1 will also be offering a perfect setting for outdoor physical challenges with the opening of Al Zorah Bootcamp to promote wellness and fitness in the community.
Marina 1 is just 15 minutes away from the City Centre Ajman, and one can reach this destination through road, seaplane, Ajman abra and yachts from Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, and Abu Dhabi.
