The 1,000 room resort – complete with casino – will open in 2026…
The arrival of Las Vegas’ famed Wynn Resorts on Marjan Island, Ras Al Khaimah has been much a much discussed hotel opening in the region. And now the resort, set to open in early 2027, has announced it’s one step closure on its construction journey.
The creators of the resort have announced the appointment of two contractors that will undertake integral construction works for the 1,000 room property. ALEC Engineering and Contracting LLC (ALEC), has been awarded the main contract for the construction of the integrated resort development. While Bauer International FZE, the German foundation specialist, will undertake the piling and enabling works.
About Wynn Marjan
First announced in January 2022, Wynn Marjan will be the brand’s first property the Middle East when it opens in early 2027. The multi-billion dollar integrated resort – the brand’s first beachfront property – will be home to more than 1,000 rooms, world-class shopping, state-of-the-art meeting and convention facility, an exclusive spa, more than 10 restaurants and lounges, and extensive entertainment choices.
Among these entertainment options will be the UAE’s first casino, as was confirmed by Craig Billings, Wynn Resorts CEO in September 2022. During an earnings call, Billings confirmed that the casino component was “shaping up to be somewhat larger than Wynn Las Vegas.” It’s expected further details will be released later this year.
New hotels on Marjan Island
While Marjan Island may already be home to an array of resorts, including properties from Movenpick, Radisson, Hilton (there’s both a DoubleTree and Hampton by Hilton) and Rixos, there’s more to come. In 2024, a new budget friendly Rove hotel will invite guests for wallet-friendly stays at a 441-room beachfront address. We can also look forward to the arrival of iconic luxury hospitality brand, Nobu Hotels, who will develop an upscale hotel, branded residences and a signature Nobu restaurant on Marjan Island. The opening date is yet to be confirmed.
