“Al Marjan Island is further enriching its offering with the opening of Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan Island, which is another testament to the reputation of Ras Al Khaimah as one of the region’s fastest-growing tourism destinations,” said Eng.

It will also enhance the appeal of Al Marjan Island for developers as a sought-after destination for leisure.”

Swiss heritage brand Mövenpick will continue to honour its Swiss roots and strong culinary heritage in this property by introducing six fresh new restaurant and bar concepts, including a trendy and sociable day to night beach lounge and restaurant inspired by the summer season in Greece, a rooftop restaurant boasting panoramic views of Al Marjan Island and a bistro bringing authentic French cuisine into a modern and welcoming setting.

Once open, this family-friendly resort will introduce Ras Al Khaimah’s first floating waterpark in the sea, featuring giant floating playgrounds, climbing walls, monkey bars, slides, and trampolines for experiences full of fun and laughter. Focussing on the whole family, while adults are out to play, the little ones are invited to 200 square metres of children’s facilities with an outdoor playground where they can create wonderful memories of their own.

“We have put together an exciting exploration program for children of all ages, which will allow parents to enjoy peace of mind as children will be taken care of from day to night in an environment which inspires imagination through hands-on ‘edutainment activities, supervised by a professional team, balancing each child needs and interests.” said General Manager Fabien Chesnais.

Providing natural daylight and a capacity of up to 350 persons, the ballroom can be split into sections to offer increased flexibility for weddings and celebrations.

The new Mövenpick resort promises to deliver high service standards and fun-filled, activity-packed stays for all ages. It joins a portfolio of more than 100 hotels and resorts around the world, with another 50 planned by 2025.
