Ask the Expert | Your Dramatic Destination Wedding at InterContinental Fujairah Resort

Situated amidst the splendour of the UAE emirate of Fujairah, the InterContinental Fujairah Resort is a symphony of traditional Arabian architecture and international luxury. Through their extensive experience of planning weddings of distinctive sophistication, InterContinental offers you the opportunity to tap into our pool of global-local knowledge and make your ultimate wedding dreams a reality. 

This week we caught up with the team their General Manager, Mr. Vijai Singh, to learn more about this chic, prestigious property, and how they can make your wedding dreams come true…

What is your role at the property? 

Anything & everything to do with Weddings! It is my mission to ensure a wedding project is executed start to finish, eventually culminating in beaming reviews from the bride and groom.

What do you enjoy most about what you do? 

Stemming from a passion for celebrations, I pride myself in bringing together cultures and traditions, and families in their priceless lifetime moments. 

Tell us a little about your venue and the wedding event spaces.  

InterContinental Fujairah Resort boasts a host of venues to cater to every occasion. Serving as avenues of expression for any event, our event space comprises 3 ballrooms, 3 meeting rooms, a Presidential Suite, a rooftop terrace, signature ­fire pits, and expansive lawns. From magni­ficent wedding ceremonies on the greens to an elegantly themed reception or a vibrant party in the ballroom, our spaces offer an experience tailored to exceed Client expectations. The Resort is also available for an exclusive destination wedding with a full Resort buyout.

What makes your venue so special?  

A treasure locked away from the urban hustle of Dubai, InterContinental Fujairah Resort represents a certain unmatched tranquility that your dream celebration deserves. Make your event a truly exclusive spectacle with a full Resort buyout.

What is unique about your property? 

Where the glistening blue waves of the Indian Ocean meet the pristine sands of Al Aqah beach amidst a backdrop of the majestic Hajjar Mountains, you’ll know that you have found the perfect setting to celebrate your fairytale wedding.

Have you ever had any extra special or unusual requests from brides and grooms? 

Every bride and groom is unique and taking care of their special requests is always a pleasure though perhaps a memorable special request that comes to mind is arranging for the groom’s dramatic entrance or ‘baraat’ to land on our Grand Lawn in a private helicopter.

How are you navigating the COVID restrictions? 

With guest and colleague health & safety at the forefront, we have promptly put in place – and continue to do so – stringent protocols in activating IHG Way of Clean across all touchpoints such as deep cleaning with hospital-grade disinfectants, face-covering requirements, contactless communications, social distancing measures within public spaces and enhanced procedures based on local authorities’ guidance and advice.

What are you finding most challenging about planning weddings in 2021? 

Whilst we await governmental policy and timeline on hosting events, we continue to manage expectations and support our Clients in the planning of their big day.

How should an engaged couple go about viewing and/or booking your venue for their wedding? 

An engaged couple would start out with a private consultation with one of our dedicated wedding professionals in the journey of planning the most memorable occasion of their life.
