We booked a trip to Oceanic Khorfakkan Resorts n Spa on Ramadan time through cobone.com, and we got a very good deal with a very low rates and breakfast complimentary. As we reach down to the hotel at the reception we found that they have upgraded our room to a premium sea view, we were on top of the world. A warm welcome gesture by the team with a hot face towel to get refreshed after a long drive from Dubai to Khorfakkan.
The drive from Dubai to Khorfakkan is indeed a marvelous experience, amidst the hills and the sea on one side, got some really breathtaking snaps on my way. The beautiful weather and the scenic beauty was just the beginning of a much needed outing away from the city life and all the hustle and bustle.

PREMIUM SEA VIEW, with stunning sea view, located on all floors, bright and modern furnishing, feature includes; Bathtub, 42-inches LED TV, Wi-Fi Access, Non-alcoholic mini-bar, writing desk, hair dryer, in-room safe, tea coffee making facilities.
We got our keys to the room and what we found on the LED Screen my hubby’s name with a beautiful note on it. What a tremendous hospitality to welcome the guest on board. All information was decked upon the screen, just a click away.
The view from our room was really amazing and pleasant,the port was clearly visible and during night the horns of the ship to get signal was one just amazing experience. The sea so beautiful and calm, embracing us with its pleasant roaring.The pool which was very distinct from the room was big with a snack lounge attached.
We put on our beach clothes and went for some sightseeing. The weather was good and the sea was calm too, the beautiful and magnificent sea along with the hotel attached so close to it was an amazing experience for us. We spent a lot of time near the sea and got some beautiful shots from my iphone.
We found a lot of Crabs over there, if it wasn’t Ramadan time i would have definitely gone for a crab feasting, so relaxed on the shores amidst the rocks and playing hide and seek with the waters. It was a great effort to get the perfect shot.

Certified IDEA Diving Center, the best quality in both services and equipment’s and highly experienced staff. All courses and dive trips are organized to be both fun and safe.

It was time for Iftar so we went back to our rooms for some refreshment, the Iftar was served in Al Murjan Restaurant, Intimate yet relaxed ,delicious home made delicacies, fresh-made pizzas, a tempting array of antipasti and a wide range of soft drinks. Designed in a contemporary style, Al Murjan offers trendy indoor settings and ample daily International buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A la carte menu is also available.
The Iftar cum dinner was delicious and with a lots of variety in it. The dish prepared was delicious, fresh and very elegantly presented.
The Sehri too was served in the same restaurant, as it was Ramadan i was not able to do any activities nor was i able to take any spa treatments,but i will definitely go back for some more fun and spas.
