Nobu Hospitality and Enevoria Development have signed an agreement to build a beachfront Nobu hotel and 300 Nobu-branded residences on Al Marjan Island in Ras Al Khaimah.
The large-scale project, occupying a total area of 70,000m², will include a spa and fitness facility, swimming pools, and the exclusive Nobu restaurant featuring contemporary Japanese cuisine.
The second Nobu hotel to open in the UAE, Nobu Al Marjan Island, will further boost the hospitality sector of Ras Al Khaimah, which has recorded sustained growth in tourist arrivals in line with the leadership’s strategy to promote destination tourism and position the Emirate as a global hub.
Trevor Horwell, CEO of Nobu Hospitality, commented: “The charm of Al Marjan Island is the ideal setting for our guests and in developing a community who are seeking an authentic destination lifestyle and living experience.”
In 2022, Ras Al Khaimah recorded its highest visitor numbers, welcoming more than 1.13 million overnight arrivals, marking a 40 per cent increase in international visitors. This shows that the Emirate is right on track to achieve the target of attracting three million visitors year-on-year by 2030.
