Conrad Hotels & Resorts today announced the signing of Conrad Marjan Island Resort. Expected to open in 2022, the Conrad property is located on Treasure Island, one of the five man-made islands that makes up the cluster of Marjan Islands located to the west of Ras Al Khaimah.
Located on a pristine beach, Conrad Marjan Island Resort will offer 120 guest rooms including beach and over-water villas. Guests will be able to take advantage of world-class facilities including a fitness center, salon, spa, outdoor pool, tennis courts and a Kids Club. The hotel will also feature an extensive range of dining options including two signature restaurants, a pool bar and beach bar.
"We are excited to grow our presence in the United Arab Emirates and to welcome Conrad Marjan Island Resort to Conrad's growing portfolio," said Martin Rinck, executive vice president and global head, Luxury & Lifestyle Group, Hilton. "The unique, contemporary design of this property will offer a familiar retreat to Conrad guests, while its locale will invite travelers to experience local art, culture and innovation."
Conrad Marjan Island Resort will join Conrad's nearly 35 properties across more than 21 countries, which all create a seamless connection between contemporary design, leading innovation and curated art to inspire the entrepreneurial spirit of the globally-connected traveler. Like all Conrad hotels, Conrad Marjan Island Resort will deliver a seamless service that is natural, anticipatory and enhanced by innovation. It is consistent in delivery, flawless in execution and allows guests to personalize every aspect of their experience.
"I am delighted to continue to grow our partnership with Hilton through the signing of Conrad Marjan Island Resort," said Mohamed Ahmed Ruqait Ali Hassan Ruqait Al-Ali, owner of MR Properties. "Conrad is a leading brand globally and we are delighted to be bringing the brand to Ras Al Khaimah for the first time."
Conrad Marjan Island will help meet the increased demand of travel to the emirate, along with need for quality, internationally-branded residences. Ras Al Khaimah boasts pristine beaches, historical sites and adventure attractions, such as the world's longest zipline. The emirate's extensive leisure tourism offering makes it a popular destination for local and international visitors alike.
"We are delighted to see Hilton further developing its presence in the emirate with this internationally branded property," said Haitham Mattar, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority. "Hilton has long been a pioneer of the hotel industry in Ras Al Khaimah and it is a great addition to Ras Al Khaimah to see Hilton bringing its luxury Conrad brand to Marjan Island."
To connect travelers to the emirate, Ras Al Khaimah International Airport is welcoming direct flights from a growing number of countries, including Poland, Russia, Luxembourg and the Czech Republic. Ras Al Khaimah is also easily accessible from Dubai International Airport, which served more than 88 million passengers last year, making it the busiest airport in the world in 2017.
