Stay at Royal Tulip The Act Sharjah, UAE – a Hotel Review
Hotel Royal Tulip The Act in Sharjah was home to me for 5 consecutive days in the first week of February 2017. I was a part of bloggers team invited by Sharjah Tourism to attend the Sharjah light festival. During the entire period I had a very cosy comfortable stay in this hotel.
Rooms at Royal Tulip The Act Sharjah
Hotel Royal Tulip The Act Sharjah have a wide range of rooms at highest end being The Executive 3 Bedroom Suite Lagoon View with 2 King Beds and 2 Single Beds. I was put up at a Deluxe room with partial view of the Lagoon. Loved the big wide windows, the view of morning skies from bed was so refreshing.
Interiors of the room are simple yet stylish! Fully air conditioned, with bathrooms (with bathtub) stuffed with sufficient toiletries, robe and ironing board (a relief to see that as, however well packed my bag is they tend to get clumpy), the room had all. The TV lay unused though, instead of watching that I curled up on sofa with a book.
The Oscars All Dining Restaurant
The breakfast buffet spreads were good. Rice based items too were served and that surprised me, as we Indians usually have it only for lunch and dinner, never for breakfast. Later I realised they were catering for international group which had come to witness the Sharjah Light Festival. I loved the dips… so many varieties. I had a good time experimenting the combinations. Couple of days we had lunch too and both the days I gorged on sea food.
Other Facilities at Royal Tulip The Act Sharjah
The hotel has an impressive fitness centre and spa, outdoor pool. Due to time crunch and several blogging activities I couldn’t experience any of these. But they do look good. They do have free parking facility, which I usually look out for when I travel.
Though the biggest plus is free wifi, we did face problems due to lack of it couple of days. A technical glitch which I guess can happen any time, but it was rectified too soon. The front desk staffs were cordial and apologetic about it. Yes, they speak English.
Sight Seeing Locations Close by
The best part of Royal Tulip The Act is its location. Dubai, capital of UAE, is just 30minutes of driving distance. Khalid Lagoon, a natural wonder of Sharjah is just across the road. Blue Souk, one of the most visited souk for gold purchases is at a walking distance from the hotel. The Ottoman architectural style A Noor mosque is at a 10 minutes walking distance. I cherish my walks in the night to photograph this beautiful monument flooded with light during the festival. Then there are travel destinations like Desert Safari, museums, Aquariums all at driving distances and well connected by roads.
