Wynn Al Marjan

First images of Wynn Al Marjan Island Resort released

The first images of the super resort Wynn Al Marjan Island Resort, a casino complex being built on Al Marjan Island in the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, have been released on social media.

The resort’s doors won’t open until 2027, but the renderings make it clear that it will be a new architectural landmark in the United Arab Emirates.

According to the Wynn Resorts chain, the resort in Ras Al Khaimah will be 18,500 square metres in size and will be larger than a similar casino hotel in Las Vegas.

Priced at AED 14 billion, Wynn Al Marjan Island Resort will offer 1,500 rooms, suites and villas to accommodate guests and will feature 24 restaurants, shops and spas.

The resort will be designed for both day trips and multi-day stays. In particular, guests will be treated to state-of-the-art laser and light shows in the evenings.

Wynn Al Marjan Island Resort will be the UAE’s first hotel with a casino and is believed to be a game-changer in the Ras Al Khaimah tourism market. According to Colliers International, the resort will attract more than 5.5 million tourists by 2023.

The tourist flow targets previously outlined by the local Tourism Development Authority are 3 million tourists. The opening of the new resort will not only bring more tourists to the emirate, but can also expect an overall boost to the economy.

The biggest increase in tourist arrivals is expected in the year the resort opens. In 2027, 3.8 million tourists could visit Ras Al Khaimah. Thus, the average annual growth rate will be 28% compared to 2022. It should not be forgotten that the resort will help to create a large number of new jobs.

The Emirate of Ras Al-Khaimah is currently updating its legal framework and writing gambling laws, taking as a model the rules in force in Singapore and the US.

The Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority has set up a new department to regulate “gaming establishments”, which will deal with licensing, taxation, operations and consumer protection.
