US developer Wynn Resorts has announced that work is moving at a steady pace on its luxury resort, Wynn Al Marjan Island, coming up in Ras Al Khaimah, with its topping off expected in Q4 2025.

The resort will open to the public in early 2027, said senior officials as they released new images of the luxury resort, which is the company’s first beachfront resort being built on a island of almost 62 hectares in the Arabian Gulf.

“We designed the 300-m-tall resort tower with Ras Al Khaimah’s historic role as a great navigational sentinel in mind. We hope this becomes a new landmark, a new beacon, for travellers to Ras Al Khaimah from across the globe,” remarked Todd Lenahan, the President and Chief Creative Officer of Wynn Design and Development.

Wynn Resorts, he said, is developing the project in partnership with Marjan and RAK Hospitality Holding. It is anticipated to be the first integrated gaming resort in the Middle East North Africa (Mena) region.

“Wynn Design and Development, employing more than 90 talented architects, designers, and creative visionaries, is overseeing all facets of the project’s design and development. Wynn Resorts is unique in that it maintains its own full-service design and architectural team,” he added.

Wynn Al Marjan Island will feature 1,542 rooms and well-appointed suites, including 22 opulent and private Villa Estates situated on the newly designed marina adjacent to the resort. There will also be an extensive poolscape adjacent to the beach with multiple swimming and wading pools, water features, private cabanas, and tropical landscaping covering 3.6 hectares, he said.

UAE-based main contractor ALEC Engineering and Contracting began work on the Wynn Al Marjan Island early last year, said Lenahan.

“Currently, the structure is about 40 m tall. The 300-m tower is expected to be topped off in Q4 of 2025,” he added.
