Boasting 515 guestrooms and beach-inspired interiors, Hampton by Hilton Marjan Island in Ras Al Khaimah is a striking addition to the country’s hospitality scene.
Hampton by Hilton Marjan Island is the latest in a string of huge hotel projects to complete across the Middle East this year.
Hampton by Hilton heads to the beach
Sun, sea and sand are in store for guests of the newly opened Hampton by Hilton Marjan Island, the brand’s first hotel in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah. The biggest Hampton by Hilton property in the world – with 515 rooms, of which half are interconnected – the UAE’s newest hotel sits on 750 m of pristine beach.
The scheme’s interiors are inspired by the beach, and guests will find maritime- and sea-themed elements peppered throughout.
“We are pleased to debut Hampton by Hilton in Ras Al Khaimah and our team members are looking forward to welcoming guests with warm and friendly hospitality for a fun-filled stay,” said Jochem-Jan Sleiffer, president for Middle East, Africa and Turkey at Hilton. “Ras Al Khaimah attracts visitors for many different types of leisure trip, from adventure to culture to sun and beach.
“With 800,000+ visitors arriving in the emirate in 2020, this latest addition to our portfolio of six hotels already welcoming guests in RAK will no doubt attract more travellers to the northern Emirate from both the UAE and beyond.”
