Scheduled to open in early 2027, the integrated resort will be constructed on the man-made Al Marjan Island in the UAE capital city of Ras Al-Khaimah.

German foundation specialist Bauer has begun preparation for piling and enabling works at the project site, while ALEC, part of the Investment Corporation of Dubai, was awarded the main contract for the construction of the development.

The project, which will represent Wynn’s first development in the Middle East and North Africa region, will include a hotel with more than 1,000 rooms, shopping mall, meeting and convention facilities, spa, restaurants, lounges, a gaming area and other entertainment amenities.

“To fulfil and surpass the expectations of investors and all our stakeholders, we have teamed up with the best-in-class partners for the timely completion of a project that is the largest of its kind in the Emirate’s growing hospitality sector,” Marjan chief executive engineer Abdulla Abdooli said.

“Well-known for their cross-sector capabilities and expertise in building landmark projects, the appointment of ALEC Engineering and Contracting and Bauer International will ensure the timely completion of the integrated Wynn Resort, that is set to further catalyse Ras Al-Khaimah’s booming tourism market.”
