Wynn Resorts has revealed resort coming to Ras Al Khaimah will be called Wynn Al Marjan Island. Also, Wynn Resorts has revealed the design concept for its first beachfront resort, which is inspired by the peaceful seascape of Al Marjan Island, a collection of four islands.
The US-listed developer and luxury resort operator will create a calm and sophisticated setting for its first project in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) area, drawing inspiration from sea vistas and bringing the pleasant, relaxing ocean backdrop into its modern world-class hotel. Also, the resort is being built in collaboration with local partners Marjan LLC and RAK Hospitality Holding. Wynn Al Marjan Island sits 305 meters above the sea in a magnificent environment overlooking the Arabian Gulf.
