Marjan brings Wynn Resorts to Ras Al Khaimah
Marjan, RAK Hospitality Holding and Wynn Resorts Limited, the US-listed international developer and operator of luxury resorts, have announced a multibillion-dollar integrated resort development on the man-made Al Marjan Island in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE. The development is the first beach resort being developed by Wynn Resorts globally.
The new resort, set to open in 2026, is in the initial stages of design and development and will have to apply for an integrated resort licence from Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority.
The new integrated resort on one of the exclusive islands, which covers an area of almost 250,000 sqm, will offer a pristine setting with spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf as well as sandy beaches and a marina. The current scope includes a 1,000+ room hotel, high-end shopping mall, a state-of-the-art meeting and convention facility, an exclusive spa, more than 10 restaurants and lounges, a wide array of entertainment choices, a gaming area and other amenities.
The integrated resort will be developed with significant foreign direct investment by Wynn Resorts. As the largest project of its kind in the emirate’s growing hospitality sector, it will create substantial value to the local economy by accelerating tourism, creating jobs and energising the growth of related sectors.
