Marjan, a Ras Al Khaimah-based master developer, has partnered with RAK Hospitality Holding and Wynn Resorts to construct the UAE’s first casino resort in Ras Al Khaimah. The integrated Wynn Resort is set to open in early 2027, with two contractors handling the vital construction work.
ALEC Engineering and Contracting, a subsidiary of the Dubai Investment Corporation, was awarded the main construction contract for the integrated resort development. Marjan stated that the contractor’s experience building complex and iconic projects in a variety of industries was critical in their selection.

The Wynn Resort will be a significant project, and choosing a reputable and experienced contractor is critical to ensuring the development is completed to the highest standards.
ALEC Engineering and Contracting’s selection demonstrates Marjan’s commitment to delivering a high-quality integrated resort that will serve as a model for future developments in the region.
The Wynn Resort, the UAE’s first casino resort, is set to open in Ras Al Khaimah, bringing significant economic benefits to the region. The resort is expected to bring in a large number of tourists, generating revenue for local businesses and creating job opportunities for local residents.
Aside from ALEC Engineering and Contracting, Bauer International, a German foundation specialist, has been chosen to complete the stacking up and enabling works on the Wynn Resort project. The project’s construction preparation has already begun on the man-made Al Marjan Island, which serves as the company’s flagship project.
The integrated Wynn Resort in Ras Al Khaimah is set to offer its guests more than 1,000 hotel rooms, a high-end shopping mall, over ten restaurants and lounges, a spa, and a meeting and conference facility.
In addition to these features, the development will provide various entertainment options, gaming areas, and other amenities to enhance the overall guest experience.
The development’s centerpiece will be an 18,500-square-meter casino, which will be twice the size of Wynn Resort’s Las Vegas property and one of the top ten largest in the world.
The casino will undoubtedly attract a large number of tourists and visitors to the area, as well as contribute significantly to the local economy.
The selection of Bauer International to complete the piling and enabling works is critical to the project’s success. Bauer is a well-known and respected foundation engineering specialist with extensive experience in complex and high-profile construction projects around the world.
The CEO of Marjan, Eng. Abdulla Abdooli emphasized the importance of collaborating with top-notch partners to meet the high expectations of stakeholders and investors for the Wynn Resort project. He further added that the selection of ALEC Engineering and Contracting LLC and Bauer International FZE, renowned for their cross-sector proficiency in constructing significant projects, will guarantee the timely completion of the ambitious integrated Wynn Resort.
The resort is set to boost Ras Al Khaimah’s flourishing tourism industry and serve as the largest project of its kind in the emirate’s thriving hospitality sector.
Marjan’s commitment to delivering a world-class development that meets the needs of all stakeholders is highlighted in Eng. Abdooli’s statement.
The selection of industry-leading partners such as ALEC Engineering and Contracting LLC and Bauer International FZE demonstrates Marjan’s commitment to excellence and completing the project to the highest standards.
With the Wynn Resort poised to become a major tourist attraction in the region, timely completion of the project is critical to realizing the development’s economic benefits. Marjan’s collaboration with world-class partners such as ALEC Engineering and Contracting LLC and Bauer International FZE is an important step towards meeting the project’s goals.
In November 2022, Wynn Resorts’ CEO Craig Billings emphasized during the company’s Q3 earnings call that they had no plans of underbuilding the casino component of the integrated Wynn Resort in Ras Al Khaimah. Billings expressed excitement about the project and mentioned that it would be larger than the Wynn Las Vegas casino, with several energetic and compact areas.
According to Eng. Abdulla Abdooli, CEO of Marjan, the new Ras Al Khaimah integrated resort, which includes the UAE’s first casino resort, is attracting significant foreign direct investment and highlighting the Emirate’s growing global reputation as a top destination for high-quality hospitality projects.
According to Abdooli, Wynn Resorts has successfully registered trademarks for the names ‘Arabian Strip’ and ‘Marjan Strip,’ and the project is the largest of its kind in the Emirate’s expanding hospitality sector.
The project’s investments are expected to stimulate the local economy, create new job opportunities, and boost tourism growth while energizing allied sectors.
The upcoming integrated Wynn Resort in Ras Al Khaimah is expected to have a significant impact on the growing hospitality sector in the Emirate. Collaboration with top-tier contractors and a substantial investment demonstrate the project’s potential to accelerate the region’s tourism market.
The success of the development is expected to generate job opportunities, boost the local economy, and stimulate growth in related sectors. The project, with its grand scale and world-class facilities, is set to be a game changer for the Emirate’s tourism industry.
