Hilton to open two new properties in RAK

RAS AL KHAIMAH, November 14, 2018

Hilton continues to grow its presence in the UAE with the signing of two new properties in Ras Al Khaimah - DoubleTree by Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Corniche Residences and the Conrad Marjan Island Resort.

Marjan Island is a cluster of four manmade islands to the west of Ras Al Khaimah, while the DoubleTree by Hilton will be located on Ras Al Khaimah’s Corniche.

Both properties will help to meet the increased demand for 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.

“Ras Al Khaimah is a fast-growing and highly sought-after leisure destination and the number of international visitors arrival rose by 11.2 per cent in the first nine months of 2018 and are expected to reach 1 million this year for the first time in the emirate’s history,” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president of development, Middle East, North Africa & Turkey, Hilton. "Hilton has had a presence in Ras Al Khaimah for more than 15 years and we are delighted to be introducing the Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand to the emirate and to be opening the DoubleTree by Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Corniche Residences.”

Located on a pristine beach, Conrad Marjan Island Resort will offer 120-guest rooms including beach villas and water villas. Guests will be able to take advantage of world-class facilities including a fitness centre, salon, spa, an outdoor pool 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.

Speaking at the signing, Mohamed Ahmed Ruqait Ali Hassan Ruqait Al-Ali, owner of MR Properties, said: “I am delighted to continue to grow our partnership with Hilton through the signing of Conrad Marjan Island Resort and DoubleTree by Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Corniche Residences. Conrad Hotels & Resorts is a leading brand globally and we are delighted to be bringing the brand to Ras Al Khaimah for the first time.”

Commenting on the signing of these two new properties Haitham Mattar, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, said: “We are delighted to see Hilton further developing its presence in the emirate with these two internationally branded properties. Hilton has long been a pioneer of the hotel industry in Ras Al Khaimah and it's a great addition to Ras Al Khaimah to see Hilton bringing its luxury Conrad brand here to Marjan Island. The corniche will also benefit hugely with the addition of the DoubleTree by Hilton residences." - TradeArabia News Service
