    Hilton today announced an agreement with M Hospitality to open Hilton Marjan Island Beach Resort & Spa in Ras Al Khaimah, the UAE’s northernmost emirate. Expected to open in Q4 2026, the upscale property will add to Hilton’s fast-growing portfolio of 80 hotels across 11 brands operating in the Middle East.

    “Hilton has been operating in Ras Al Khaimah for over 20 years and we are excited to be working with M Hospitality once again,” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president, development, Middle East & Africa, Hilton. “With Ras Al Khaimah expected to welcome over 3.8 million visitors by 20271, we see great opportunity in the emirate and its leisure hubs such as Marjan Island. We currently have two hotels in operation on the island and Hilton Marjan Island Beach Resort & Spa will add significantly to our offering.”

    Hilton Marjan Island Beach Resort & Spa is set to offer 315 spacious king rooms and 35 suites. The resort will boast a choice of six restaurants and bars and a range of leisure facilities – including a fitness club, a spa and wellness centre, a 360-degree sky pool overlooking the Arabian Gulf, tennis courts, a kids club and a dedicated kids pool and playground. The property will also offer an executive lounge, four meeting rooms and a ballroom that can host up to 300 people.

    Mohammed Ruqait, chairman of M Hospitality, said, “We are honored to unveil our latest venture — a world-class hotel on Ras Al Khaimah’s iconic Al Marjan Island. This project reflects our commitment to redefining modern living, offering an upscale hospitality experience. Teaming up with the prestigious Hilton brand signifies the third milestone in our journey, and we are excited to contribute to the cultural and economic landscape of Ras Al Khaimah.”

    Surrounded by RAK’s serene coastline and a myriad of landscapes, from the rugged peaks of the Hajar Mountains to the tranquil beaches along the Persian Gulf, Hilton Marjan Island Beach Resort & Spa will be easily accessible – with Dubai International Airport just an hour’s drive away and Ras Al Khaimah International Airport only 20 minutes away. The hotel will also be adjacent to Hampton by Hilton Marjan Island.

    World's highest rooftop beach to be built on RAK’s Al Marjan Island

    The UAE-based Major Developers on Tuesday announced the launch of Dh1-billion Manta Bay on Al Marjan Island in Ras Al-Khaimah, including the world’s first rooftop beach. Construction work on the project has already started and is scheduled to complete at the end of 2026.

    It will be the highest beach in the world with its own sand and seawater, the developer said.

    The residential freehold project will be built for Dh400 million, housing 450 units with prices starting from Dh1.2 million.

    “We believe that it is high time to invest in Ras al Khaimah because the emirate will see a massive inflow of tourists, especially after the opening of the Wynn Resort on the Marjan Island.”

  6. Interesting that Marriott is now entering Marjan with all its brand power.

    Until recently it looked like Marjan had an almost exclusive deal with Hilton.

    W Al Marjan Island will open in 2027, the same year as the Wynn integrated resort. The Marriott-operated property is in agreement with Dalands Holding in collaboration with Marjan, the master-developer of the island.
    The resort will boast 300 rooms and suites with uninterrupted sea views. Design plans for the property include spaces such as the Living Room, WET deck, W Lounge, AWAY Spa and FIT fitness centre. The property is also expected to offer three restaurants and retail space.

  9. It's hard to tell without knowing where you are facing towards but it could be the base of a number of them as many have the similar shape to a certain height. My best guesst is Le Meridien though it doesn't yet have the distinctive curve at the top?
