Emaar Properties has shed light on its first hotel and residences project in Ras Al Khaimah, Address Al Marjan Island, which will stand on the Views island of Al Marjan Island – the four-island mega-development.
Address Al Marjan Island will be a resort-style development that draws on its exceptional natural location on the shores of the Arabian Sea. It will be home to 249 rooms and suites, while Address Residences Al Marjan Island will comprise 234 high-end apartments.
Due to its location on Views island, residents will be in close proximity to the urban core of the master-planned community, as well as the town centre.
Chairman, Al Marjan Island, Sheikh Khalid bin Saud Al Qasimi remarked on the game-changing project: “We are honoured to welcome Emaar and its prestigious Address hotel brand to Al Marjan Island, which will further strengthen the appeal of our master-planned development as a preferred hub for visitors and investors from around the world. Emaar’s proven strengths in mixed-use developments will add significant value to Al Marjan Island with the Address hotel to contribute to our emirate’s tourism sector.
“With its positive economic growth and focus on strengthening the tourism and investment landscape, Ras Al Khaimah has recorded robust growth in visitor arrivals and in attracting inward investments,” he concluded.
The announcement of Address Al Marjan Island follows a Memorandum of Understanding signed by Emaar in December last year to develop mixed-use projects, including high-end residential, hospitality and retail components, on Al Marjan Island.
Address Al Marjan Island will feature several unique restaurant concepts, including The Restaurant at Address for all-day dining, as well as meeting and banquet space, a business lounge, a modern fitness centre, a spa, a pool and other wellness amenities.
