Marriott International, Inc. is making waves in the hospitality industry with its recent announcement of a thrilling collaboration. The global hotel giant has inked an agreement with Dalands Holding, in partnership with Marjan, the master-developer of freehold properties in Ras Al Khaimah. The goal? To introduce the renowned W Hotels brand to Al Marjan Island, one of the UAE’s most sought-after leisure destinations. Anticipated to open its doors in the first quarter of 2027, W Al Marjan Island promises to redefine luxury and set new standards for hospitality in Ras Al Khaimah.
Nestled amidst the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf, Al Marjan Island stands as Marjan’s flagship archipelago island. This picturesque haven is located just off the coast of the city, boasting a breathtaking backdrop provided by the Yanas and Jais Mountains. Al Marjan Island has swiftly become a thriving leisure destination, drawing global travelers with its luxurious waterfront living, pristine white sandy beaches, and an abundance of activities and water sports. It is also ideally situated in close proximity to Ras Al Khaimah’s cultural, heritage, and adventure attractions, making it a dream destination for tourists seeking an unforgettable experience.
W Al Marjan Island is set to mark a significant milestone in the W Hotels portfolio as the brand’s first property in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. The hotel, situated on prime beachfront real estate, will offer 300 rooms and suites, all featuring uninterrupted sea views. But what truly sets this property apart is its bold and innovative design.
Guests can look forward to signature spaces like the Living Room, the perfect spot for socializing and relaxing, and the WET deck, an oasis of serenity overlooking the Arabian Gulf. The W Lounge will provide a stylish setting for sipping cocktails, while the AWAY Spa will pamper visitors with world-class wellness experiences. Fitness enthusiasts need not worry, as the FIT fitness center will cater to their every need.
Culinary enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with three exceptional restaurants, each offering a unique gastronomic experience. Additionally, the property will feature retail spaces for those who enjoy a little retail therapy.
The announcement of W Al Marjan Island underscores W Hotels’ commitment to expansion in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. This move brings the brand’s presence in the UAE to a total of four properties, following the success of W Dubai The Palm, W Dubai – Mina Seyahi, and W Abu Dhabi – Yas Island. With new openings in the pipeline across the region, W Hotels continues to captivate travelers with its distinctive blend of bold design, exceptional service, and dynamic programming.
