i By May 7, 2024 No Comments

Wynn Resorts, Limited has released new images of its latest luxury resort, Wynn Al Marjan Island, which is currently under construction in Ras al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Wynn is developing the project in partnership with Marjan and RAK Hospitality Holding. Situated on an almost 62 hectares island jutting into the Arabian Gulf, it is the company’s first beachfront resort and is expected to be the first integrated gaming resort in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region.

Wynn Design and Development, which employs more than 90 architects, designers, and creative visionaries, is overseeing all facets of the project’s design and development.

“Historically, the area around Ras Al Khaimah was a beacon for navigation and important trade on the Arabian Gulf. Early travelers through the Gulf relied upon this tented settlement as a trade landmark between the Arabian Gulf and the Arabian Sea,” said Todd Lenahan, president and chief creative officer of Wynn Design and Development. “We designed the 300-meter-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 travelers to Ras Al Khaimah from across the globe.”

Overlooking its own white sand beach with views of both the Arabian Gulf and the Hajar Mountains, Wynn Al Marjan Island will feature 1,542 rooms and suites, including 22 private Villa Estates situated on the newly designed marina adjacent to the resort. There will also be an extensive poolscape neighboring the beach with multiple swimming and wading pools, water features, private cabanas, and tropical landscaping covering 3.6 hectares.

The resort will also have a curated collection of 22 dining, lounge and bar experiences, each presented in their own uniquely-designed space, many with views of the beach and poolscape.

Other highlights of Wynn Al Marjan Island include:

  • a meetings and event center with more than 80,700 square feet of space;
  • ample outdoor event terraces and lawns;
  • a 161,450+ square-foot shopping esplanade featuring the world’s top luxury boutiques;
  • a five-star spa and salon;
  • and a theater that will feature bespoke productions.

Wynn Al Marjan Island began construction in early 2023 with construction led by UAE-based main contractor ALEC Engineering and Contracting. Currently, the structure is about 40 meters tall. The full tower height – more than 300 meters – is expected to be topped off in the fourth quarter of 2023. The resort is expected to open to the public in early 2027.

Ras Al Khaimah is one of the fastest growing tourism markets in the MENA region, conveniently located near the Ras Al Khaimah, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi airports.
