According to Wynn Resorts’ chief executive, the forthcoming gaming and integrated resort in Ras Al Khaimah will be larger than the company’s facilities in Las Vegas.

According to Craig Scott Billings, the site’s foundation work will begin in the middle of 2019.

“Our planning for the Al Marjan Island Integrated Resort in the UAE is moving along quickly. Programming at the resort is currently nearing its conclusion. We have an incredible canvas with which to work and design something truly unique given the immaculate beach settings and the somewhat malleable nature of the man-made island, Billings said during a conference call.

He wants to make rendering, programming, and plans more accessible to more people at the beginning of 2023. (Ras Al Khaimah)

The US corporation will make its first foray into the Middle East and North Africa with a multibillion-dollar integrated resort. The company announced that the Ras Al Khaimah hotel project would open in 2026 in January 2022. The project consists of a high-end hotel with more than 1,000 rooms, a shopping mall, a meeting and convention center, a spa, more than 10 restaurants and lounges, and “gaming zones.”

We plan to start driving piles for the property’s foundation in the middle of 2019. On the conference call with investors and analysts following the third-quarter 2022 results, Billings remarked, “We look forward to sharing additional information with you about this intriguing endeavor in due course.

Given that it is a man-made island, the location is adaptable. As an illustration, you move the beach if you wish to. It’s a really interesting project, and we tried to maximize how the building related to its surroundings, especially when it came to non-gaming services like food and drink and health, as well as making the most of the special position, according to Billings.

It’s shaping up to be somewhat larger than Wynn Las Vegas, which makes it extremely exciting, he added, adding that the resort will be stunning. “We will be running on our own, which makes it quite exciting.

The CEO of Wynn Resorts stated that they are completely focused on the UAE to do it right. “The opportunity has a very high return.”(Ras Al Khaimah)
