The Ajman Kempinski... making the most of its spectacular beach front.

The Ajman Kempinski Hotel & Resort in the UAE will make the most of its spectacular 500-metre beach and construct a Ramadan tent on the shores of the hotel for guests visiting the emirate during the Holy Month.

"The tent will open directly on the beach, where you can choose to sit inside or outside on the terrace, or in the low seating area," said a hotel spokesman.

Open every night from 9pm until Suhour, the early morning pre-fast meal, guests can enjoy a special Ramadan buffet, traditional hot and cold beverages, and different kinds of shisha.

"After supper you can relax under the skies playing backgammon and other games while the oud gently plays in the night," said the spokesman.

A lavish Iftar buffet priced at Dh80++ ($21.7) will be on offer at the hotel's main restaurant CafZ Kranzler, which also has a spacious terrace overlooking the sea.

The hotel also extends a special Ramadan rate of Dh400 for a single and Dh450 for a double room which includes breakfast or Suhour and applicable taxes.
