Wynn unveils first design images of UAE resort, to be named Wynn Al Marjan Island

US casino giant Wynn Resorts has released first design impressions for its new integrated resort project in the United Arab Emirates while announcing the development’s official name: Wynn Al Marjan Island.

To be developed alongside local partners Marjan LLC and RAK Hospitality Holding LLC, Wynn Al Marjan Island will rise more than 1,000 feet (305 meters) above the sea and come in at an estimated cost of US$3.9 billion.

Wynn said the brand’s signature, high-design opulence will be reflected in its approximately 1,500 rooms, suites and villas with the final design inspired by the natural landscape surrounding the resort and the traditional design aesthetic of Wynn Resorts.

“The same geometric configuration of the curved shape of the beach on the island is echoed through the podium structure, similar to a great opera house, creating majestic views of the beach, sea and the horizon,” it explained. “Every diner in the abundant restaurant offerings lining the beach-facing promenade at Wynn Al Marjan Island will enjoy sweeping views of the sea.”

Amenities will include the UAE’s first casino, 24 dining and lounge experiences, innovative spa and wellness experiences, a high-end shopping esplanade, a state-of-the-art events center, a theater hosting a unique production show, and more.

“We have spent the past year meticulously programming and concepting Wynn Al Marjan Island, carefully considering its unique location,” said Wynn Resorts CEO, Craig Billings.

“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.”

Al Marjan Island itself is home to a growing portfolio of luxury five-star hotels and residential developments, plus over 7.8 kilometers of beaches and 23 kilometers of waterfront.
