Government JV launches tourism and hospitality projects in Ajman
The new phase for development of Ajman as a tourist destination was launched yesterday in an onsite press conference in the presence of HH Sheikh Rashid Bin Humeid Al Nuaimi, chairman of Al Zorah Development Company.
Launched in four phases the first phase will include a 5-star resort, tourist village, beachside village and international standard golf course. Al Zorah Resorts features sandy beaches, lagoons and mangrove forest reserves, all within a short distance of Dubai and Sharjah airports. The area will aspire to be tourism and hospitality hub for the region.
The project will be complete in 30 months with early 2014 being a provisional opening date. It includes five districts, with a 180 room tourist village.
“Al Zorah Resorts is developed to catalyse the economy of Ajman with a focus on driving the tourism and hospitality sectors that will contribute to the Emirate’s all-round growth,” said HH Sheikh Rashid Bin Humeid Al Nuaimi.
“In addition to the thousands of jobs that the development will create, it will also power the evolution of several associated ancillary industries that, in turn, will generate many more indirect jobs. One of the most ambitious and large-scale developments in Ajman, Al Zorah Resorts will redefine the economic landscape of the emirate,” Sheikh Al Nuaimi added.
Al Zoreah Resorts is a joint venture between Solidere International and the Government of Ajman.
