Hilton Worldwide will expand its portfolio in Ras Al Khaimah

Hilton Worldwide will expand its portfolio in the Middle East with the dual-brand signing of a new hotel. DoubleTree by Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Corniche Residences and the Conrad Marjan Island Resort will be the global hotel group’s 50th hotel in its collection in the United Arab Emirates.

The DoubleTree by Hilton will be located on the Corniche in Ras Al Khaimah, while the Conrad Marjan Island Resort will be located on a cluster of four manmade islands, west of the city. The addition of the new hotel is to keep up with the demand of travellers visiting the emirate.

Carlos Khneisser, the Vice President of Development for the Middle East, North Africa & Turkey, Hilton, stated:

“Ras Al Khaimah is a fast-growing and highly sought-after leisure destination and the number of international visitor arrivals rose by 11.2% 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.”

"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.”

Conrad Marjan Island Resort will have 120 guest rooms, including luxury beach villas and water villas. The resort will have upscale facilities including a modern fitness centre, beauty salon, a full-service spa, an outdoor swimming pool and a Kids Club with fun activities.

Guests can enjoy gourmet dining options at two signature restaurants, a pool bar and a beach bar. The new hotel will join the Conrad brand’s collection of more than 33 properties across 21 countries worldwide.

“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 and the corniche will benefit hugely with the addition of the DoubleTree by Hilton residences.”

Commented Haitham Mattar, the CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority.

Ras Al Khaimah is one of seven United Arab Emirates in the Middle East. The emirate has become a popular destination for adventure travellers and nature lovers, due to its magnificent natural landscapes. These include miles of pristine beaches, red sandy desert, verdant green plains, winding creeks, turquoise tranquil lagoons, and soaring mountains.

For adrenaline junkies, the country has Jebel Jais, the highest mountain range in the United Arab Emirates. The Jebel Jais Flight is the world’s longest zipline, and it has become a favourite for thousands of visitors. The 2.83-kilometre-long zip-wire allows passengers to reach speeds up to 150 miles per hour, and there’s a double cable so that visitors can zipline in tandem.
