    Hilton Worldwide and DoubleTree by Hilton has announced the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island, located in the UAE’s latest premier destination of Ras al Khaimah. The beautiful resort joins Hilton Worldwide’s portfolio of four hotels in up and coming Ras Al Khaimah, with the latest offering enjoying a prominent location on the trunk of Marjan Island, one of five artificial islands of premium offshore tourism development close to the upscale area of Al Hamra. With striking views of the Arabian Gulf, the 485-room DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island will feature a complementary mix of guest rooms and suites, sea-view rooms and villas, all with access to the resort’s private 650-metre beach.

    Guests at DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island will enjoy the convenience of nearby shopping and entertainment plazas, and easy accessibility to a wealth of sporting and leisure options including golf, desert camping and a range of water sports. In addition to the 650-metre private beach, on site facilities include a fitness centre, five temperature controlled pools, with two designed especially for children, and a wide range of dining options suitable for everyone’s tastes, ranging from gourmet delicacies to all-day dining options to a rooftop bar where guests can soak in the view, relax with ambient music and experience an Arabian shisha speciality.

    DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island will also feature the UAE’s first eforea: spa, Hilton Worldwide’s exclusive spa concept, including seven relaxing treatment rooms along with rejuvenating Jacuzzi, sauna and steam facilities. Corporate guests will also appreciate the hotel’s three flexible meeting spaces.

    Ras Al Khaimah is the most northern Emirate in the UAE and a land of contrast with red sandy desert, lush green plains, interspersed with creeks and lagoons, and beautiful mountains, the highest of which often has snowfall in winter. Only 45 minutes’ drive from Dubai International Airport, the largest airport in the Middle East with more than 260 global routes, the Emirate’s diverse landscape and exceptional amenities attracted 1.2 million visitors* during 2012 and is on course to increase that figure further for 2013.
