Spectrum Brunch and Stay, The Fairmont Ajman

A staycation on a budget, the Brunch and Stay package is the perfect antidote to a busy week. Check into your room, freshen up, then head down for the Spectrum’s Friday brunch – there is a massive selection of food on offer, from fresh sushi to succulent roast beef and an aromatic Indian station. After you’ve filled up, head to XOLO – the bar next door – for post-brunch bubbles (the first one is complimentary) and then upstairs to Badr Lounge, an exclusive guests- and members-only bar with the best views of the sunset and great deals on drinks. The following morning, make the most of breakfast by the pool and while the hours away by the ocean until check-out. From Dh1,163 excluding taxes for two adults. 06 701 5757
