Marjan, a master-developer of freehold property in Ras Al Khaimah, RAK Hospitality Holding and US-listed developer and luxury resort operator Wynn Resorts have signed up HKS Architects as the design consultant for their integrated beachfront resort in the northern emirate.
Located on the man-made Al Marjan Island, the multibillion-dollar development will be Wynn Resorts’ first in the Mena region, and its first-ever beachfront resort globally.
Offering a pristine setting with stunning coastal views as well as sandy beaches and a marina, the new resort will be on an exclusive island within Al Marjan Island.
Being built to the highest standards of sustainability best practices, its current scope includes a luxury hotel of more than 1,000 rooms, a high-end shopping esplanade, a state-of-the-art meetings and convention facility, an exclusive spa, more than 10 dining experiences and lounges, a wide array of entertainment choices, gaming area, and other amenities.
On the key agreement, Marjan CEO Engineer Abdulla Abdooli said: “The new resort will be the first of its kind in the region offering guests exceptional accommodations, dining and entertainment in a truly spectacular setting. We look forward to realising our vision for the Wynn Resort on Al Marjan Island with HKS Architects and raising the benchmark in luxury hospitality in the Middle East to boost tourism in the emirate and attract visitors from across the world.”
Developed with direct investment by Wynn Resorts, the integrated resort is the largest project of its kind in the emirate’s growing hospitality sector that will create substantial value to its economy by accelerating tourism, creating jobs, and energising the growth of related sectors, he stated.
