Design revealed for new Wynn Al Marjan Island casino

Wynn Resorts has unveiled the design for its new Wynn Al Marjan Island integrated casino resort in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).


Scheduled to open in early 2027, the land-based venue will be built on the man-made Al Marjan Island in the city of Ras Al-Khaimah. The project will be Wynn’s first venture in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region.

The initial design for the project, which is expected to cost Wynn $3.90bn (£3.1bn/€3.53bn), includes a gaming area, 1,500 hotel rooms, dining and lounge options, a spa and wellness centre, a high-end shopping esplanade, events centre, an on-site theatre and a range of other entertainment facilities.

Wynn, which is developing the new resort alongside local partners Marjan and RAK Hospitality Holding, also said the Wynn Al Marjan Island will offer nightly laser and light shows.

“We have spent the past year meticulously programming and concepting Wynn Al Marjan Island, carefully considering its unique location,” Wynn chief executive Craig Billings said. “I am incredibly proud of our design and development team’s ability to impart our legacy of rich, thoughtful design into a sun-soaked beachside resort that will delight customers, new and old.

“We look forward to opening Wynn Al Marjan Island in early 2027.”

Last month, Wynn also appointed ALEC Engineering and Bauer International to carry out integral construction work at the site.

German foundation specialist Bauer has begun preparation for piling and enabling works at the project site, while ALEC, part of the Investment Corporation of Dubai, was awarded the main contract for the construction of the development.
