Wynn to Develop Integrated Casino Resort in UAE

Wynn Resorts and Marjan, owned by RAK Hospitality, have announced that they are collaborating on the Middle East’s first integrated casino resort, a multi-billion dollar project in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates.

The resort is due to open in 2026. It will be based on the man-made Al Marjan Island and include a gaming floor, over 1,000 hotel rooms, shops, and meeting and convention facilities. The location is just 15 minutes from the Ras Al Khaimah International Airport and 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport.


Marjan has been tasked by the UAE’s government with developing the Emirates as a tourism and investment destination, and it will be applying, together with Wynn Resorts, for an integrated resort license from the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority.

The integrated development, featuring a world-class hotel, entertainment, and gaming amenities, will add to the Emirate’s destination strategy to attract tourists from across the world. We are partnering with Wynn Resorts, one of the world’s most renowned integrated resort companies, which has a strong track record of developing luxury destinations with exceptional accommodation, dining, entertainment concepts, and gaming facilities. By leveraging Wynn Resorts’ expertise in developing luxury hospitality destinations, the new development will raise the benchmark in luxury hospitality in the region. It will also create exceptional value to the Ras Al Khaimah economy and boost the leisure, business, and MICE tourism sectors.
