Wynn Resorts has announced that its first ever project in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region will be the US$3.9bn integrated resort, Wynn Al Marjan Island, to be located at Al Marjan Island in the premium resort of Ras Al Khaimah, immediately adjacent to Dubai.
Developed in partnership with local partners Marjan and RAK Hospitality Holding, the seafront resort is the largest direct leisure investment to date in Ras Al Khaimah and will feature over 1,000 premium hotel rooms.
Commenting on the announcement that construction work will commence later this year, Wynn Resorts’ CEO, Craig Billings, says: “We have spent the past year meticulously programming and concepting Wynn Al Marjan Island, carefully considering its location.
“I am incredibly proud of our design and development team’s ability to impart our legacy of rich, thoughtful design into a sun-soaked beachside resort that will delight customers new and old. We look forward to opening Wynn Al Marjan Island in early 2027.”
