Each of the rooms at the Oberoi, Al Zorah are decorated in an elegant contemporary style blending neutral colour schemes with classic furnishings. They all have a private terrace while villas have temperature controlled private pools, as well as a range of amenities including free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, entertainment centres and generously sized bathrooms.

Back at the hotel, there’s a championship gold course if you fancy practicing your game, as well as several outdoor pools and a beach club offering kite surfing and fishing.
