Resort officials from the Le Meridien Al Aqah in Fujairah, UAE, will announce what we've heard is a "massive room refurbishment plan" at Arabian Travel Market (ATM) next month that will be completed over the next two summers.
This refurbishment will include a complete overhaul of the bedrooms, including a complete re-design. A renovation and refurbishment project to public spaces has recently been completed at the resort. The hotel entrance and the Le Méridien Al Aqah pool, one of the largest in the UAE, had all the pool deck area retiled and redesigned. The restaurant has a new interactive kitchen and live cooking stations.
Le Méridien Al Aqah continues to play a lead role in environment protection in the region: As part of the first phase of renovation, wave barriers were built to protect the hotel's beachfront in 2012. The East Coast resort is also focused heavily on recycling energy, water and light conservation and recent initiatives include the addition of energy efficient fluorescent lighting to reduce energy wastage, new low-flow toilets, water-saving showers and low faucet flow in guestrooms and the removal of all endangered species of fish from its menus.
