Setting new global benchmarks for design and premium luxury experiences, Wynn Resorts is poised to introduce its highly anticipated resort on Al Marjan Island in Ras Al Khaimah. This visionary project draws inspiration from the mesmerizing views of the Arabian Gulf, encapsulating a harmonious blend of tranquility and grandeur. The forthcoming multibillion-dollar integrated resort, known as Wynn Al Marjan Island, signifies a pivotal milestone for Wynn Resorts in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region.
Partnering with local entities Marjan LLC and RAK Hospitality Holding LLC, Wynn Resorts envisions a resort that stands as a testament to opulence and sophistication, offering over 1,500 lavish rooms, suites and villas. Situated more than 1,000 feet above the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf, the resort sets an elevated stage for exceptional entertainment, gaming amenities, fine-dining venues, wellness experiences and exclusive shopping.
This architectural marvel, with a projected investment of around USD 3.9 billion, will not only serve as a beacon of luxury but also catalyze Ras Al Khaimah’s ascent as a prominent global tourist destination. The development holds the promise of enriching the local economy through increased tourism and job opportunities, nurturing a thriving ecosystem of associated industries.
The distinct character of Wynn Al Marjan Island is shaped by its geographical surroundings and the signature design ethos of Wynn Resorts. Drawing inspiration from the island’s natural contours, the resort’s architecture mirrors the curvature of the shoreline, evoking the grandeur of a magnificent opera house. The result is a breathtaking spectacle that seamlessly blends with the picturesque surroundings.
Craig Billings, CEO of Wynn Resorts, expressed his pride in the meticulously crafted design, stating: “Our team has dedicated the past year to curating the concept for Wynn Al Marjan Island, taking into consideration its unique setting. We are excited to present a sun-kissed beachside resort that embodies our legacy of thoughtful design, promising an unforgettable experience for both our loyal patrons and newcomers. Anticipation is high as we eagerly await the opening of Wynn Al Marjan Island in early 2027.”
This significant project not only underscores Wynn Resorts’ commitment to redefining luxury in the UAE but also showcases Ras Al Khaimah’s ascent as a globally recognized investment hub for premier hospitality ventures. The emirate, celebrated for its preserved history, archaeological heritage and nature-based tourism offerings, continues to position itself as a sustainable and alluring destination.
With its portfolio of luxury hotels and residential developments, combined with miles of pristine beaches and captivating waterfront, Al Marjan Island evolves into a world-class resort destination. Against the backdrop of a rapidly growing tourism market in the MENA region, Ras Al Khaimah stands as a beacon of sustainable growth and a testament to the allure of nature-based tourism.
