Nobu Hospitality opens projects in RAK

Marjan has welcomed the celebrated Nobu Hospitality to the emirate of Ras el Khaimah on its flagship Al Marjan Island. This follows the signing with Enevoria Development, who recently acquired a beachfront plot on Al Marjan Island, to build the luxury Nobu hotel and branded residences and the famous Nobu restaurant.

Enevoria Development will develop a Nobu Hotel and 300 Nobu-branded luxury residences, providing residents and visitors with unrivaled guest services and bespoke amenities. The large-scale project, with a total area of 70,000 square meters, will also include a spa and fitness facility, swimming pools and an exclusive Nobu restaurant.

Nobu Al Marjan Island will be the second Nobu hotel to open in the UAE. The upscale hotel is the latest addition to Al Marjan Island’s growing portfolio of beachfront hospitality destinations welcoming tourists from across the world. The new hotel further boosts the robust hospitality sector of Ras Al Khaimah, which has recorded sustained growth in tourist arrivals in line with the leadership’s strategy to promote destination tourism and position the Emirate as a global hub.

Abdulla Al Abdouli, CEO of Marjan, said: “With the arrival of Nobu Al Marjan Island, Ras Al Khaimah now joins an elite group of cities worldwide to put on display the power of Japanese minimalism, exceptional hospitality and world-class dining the brand is renowned for. Set in the heart of our iconic flagship island, the opening of Nobu reinforces Ras Al Khaimah’s credentials as a high-growth destination for international and regional investors. We will continue to leverage global partnerships, such as Enevoria Development, to develop signature projects that elevate the emirate’s status as a premier world-class leisure and lifestyle destination.”

Trevor Horwell, CEO of Nobu Hospitality, added: “We are thrilled to be continuing our expansion within the UAE and the vision for Al Marjan Island aligns seamlessly with the Nobu brand. The charm of Al Marjan Island is the ideal setting for our guests and in developing a community who are seeking an authentic destination lifestyle and living experience.  We are proud to partner with Enevoria on this exciting development and look forward to introducing Nobu Al Marjan Island to guests and residents alike.”

In 2022, Ras Al Khaimah recorded its highest visitor numbers, welcoming more than 1.13 million overnight arrivals, marking a 40 percent increase in international visitors. As the emirate continues its growth as a world-class tourism destination, it is on track to achieve the target of attracting 3 million visitors year on year by 2030.
