The second part of a two-part series uncovering Fujairah’s first-ever oyster farming operation, Dibba Bay Oysters, along with an exquisite smoked oyster tasting at the Fairmont Fujairah Beach Resort.
Fairmont Fujairah Beach Resort
The Fairmont Fujairah Beach Resort is a luxury beach resort set along the coast of Dibba and against the backdrop of the majestic Hajjar mountains. We were invited for an “ocean to plate” tour, that included tasting local fish and oysters at the hotel’s dedicated seafood concept, The Copper Lobster under Chef Georgiy Danilov, and then with a visit to the Dibba Bay Oyster farm which supplies the restaurant with the region’s only locally farmed oysters.
A special thanks to Joanna Huang and Marwa al Omami who invited us to the Fairmont. And an extra special shout out to Marwa who spent two days sharing her knowledge and passion for Dibba with us. It was truly one of the most memorable trips we have had in the country.
Dibba Bay Oysters
Ramie Murray commercialized the first ever local oyster farming operation in Dibba, Fujairah at the start of 2018, after years of testing and fine tuning the concept. He currently supplies to a handful of restaurants in Dubai, including the Maine Oyster Bar and Grill, Galvin, Boca, Galleries Lafayette, Hapi, Crab Market, STK and Sean Connolly. At the time of this podcast, there was also a farm shop in the works for Dubai customers at the Um Suqeim harbour. Read more about Ramie’s oyster farm here and follow him on Instagram here.
