A new beach club is set to open in Fujairah, on the UAE’s East Coast. Lava Beach Club, at the Fairmont Fujairah Beach Resort, will open its doors on Friday December 15, bringing Ibiza-inspired vibes to the Emirate. And it’s all just a two-hour drive from Dubai.
Designed to appeal to both families and the party crowd, the 400-person-capacity club welcomes guests of all ages during the day, while after 8pm it’s over 21s only and the theme becomes distinctly Balearic nightlife.
A huge free-form swimming pool (tiled in red, yellow and orange, representing lava) is the beach club’s centrepiece, flanked by sofas and day beds. Five luxury chalets equipped with TVs, mini fridges and washrooms are also available to hire for the day or night, while there are also six Jacuzzis, a huge swim-up bar and kids’ pool and club dotted around the club. Guests can dine a new MediterrAsian restaurant, Lava Dining, while a raised DJ booth will have resident DJs spinning throughout the week.
If you fancy making a weekend of it, you could even book the four-bedroom penthouse suite, which overlooks the club. What a weekend escape. Open Sun-Thu 7am-11pm, Fri-Sat 7am-midnight. Guests aged 21 and over only after 8pm. Fairmont Fujairah Beach Resort, Fujairha (09 204 1111).
