You may have been following the mega-resort development in Ras Al Khaimah, where US-based Wynn Resorts is opening a multi-billion-dollar resort.

A plannedĀ Las Vegas-style resort in the UAE city of Ras al-Khaimah could help attract over five million tourists, a report published on Tuesday said, two million visitors more than the expected number by 2030.

Due to open in 2026, this integrated, multipurpose resort represents the largest-of-its-kind foreign direct investment in Al Marjan Island, Ras Al Khaimah.

The resort plan includes a 1,000-room luxury hotel, upmarket shopping, more than 10 restaurants and lounges and extensive entertainment choices, including the regionā€™s first gaming area. While details are still unveiling, I expect luxurious apartments and villa to be a key part of the mega development.
