Wynn Resorts has announced the name of its upcoming integrated UAE resort: Wynn Al Marjan Island.
The company also shared a look at the design vision of the resort, which is being developed with local partners Marjan and RAK Hospitality Holding, with an estimated project cost of US$3.9b.
Wynn’s first ever beachfront resort, which aims to offer a “premium, luxury experience,” will be constructed on Al Marjan Island in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE. Construction began earlier this year.
The project is the first of its kind in the Middle East North Africa region for the US company, which is hoping to contribute to the Emirates’ status as a major global tourist destination.
The site will comprise 1,500 rooms, suites and villas, and include a wide selection of entertainment options, a gaming area, 24-hour dining, spa and wellness experiences, a high-end shopping esplanade, a state-of-the-art events centre and a theatre hosting a unique production show.
“We have spent the past year meticulously programming and concepting Wynn Al Marjan Island, carefully considering its unique location,” said Craig Billings, CEO of Wynn Resorts.
“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.”
