Wynn Resorts has announced the name of its new multi-billion-dollar resort, debuting in Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE): Wynn Al Marjan Island.
The company also unveiled the design vision of its first-ever beachfront resort, which is inspired by the seascape of Al Marjan Island, a group of four islands.
Set in a pristine setting overlooking the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf, Wynn Al Marjan Island rises more than 305 meters above the sea, promising a “premium luxury experience,” including entertainment and gaming amenities.
For its first project in the Middle East North Africa region, the U.S.-listed developer and luxury resort operator will create a stylish setting that takes inspiration from the sea views and brings the warm, relaxed ocean setting into its modern world-class hotel.
With an estimated cost of approximately USD 3.9 billion, the silhouette of Wynn Al Marjan Island promises to “transform and accelerate the Emirate's rise as a major global tourist hub.
The hotel will have approximately 1,500 rooms, suites and villas, as well as entertainment options, a gaming area, 24 dining and lounge experiences, spa and wellness experiences, a shopping esplanade, a state-of-the-art events centre, a theatre, and other amenities, including nightly laser and light shows.
"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."
Billings said Wynn Al Marjan Island will open in early 2027.
