The upcoming resort will be built in Mina Al Arab, comprising approximately 250 units of guest rooms, suites and Maldives-inspired overwater villas
RAK Properties signed a hotel management agreement with Minor Hotel Group (MHG) to operate a luxury eco-themed waterfront resort in RAK – Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort.
The upcoming resort will be built in Mina Al Arab, comprising approximately 250 units of guest rooms, suites and Maldives-inspired overwater villas.
The new vacation spot will be situated in a secluded area with its own private beach overlooking a eco-reserve lined with mangroves.
Among the featured amenities of the Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort are various health and sports facilities, ballroom seating and events area, dedicated kids’ club and a local version of the Anantara Spa Experience.
A selection of restaurants will also feature including specialty Asian dining and seafood grill. The resort will complement Mina Al Arab’s ecological and leisure themes when it commences operations in late 2018.
Mohammed Sultan Al Qadi, MD and CEO, RAK Properties, said: “Our partnership with Minor Hotel Group perfectly represents the coming together of an established international brand and a reputed local company that is known for its world-class residential and hospitality projects. In MHG we have found a highly credible and compatible partner that paves the way for a sustained and very productive association. Anantara will be a great addition to Mina Al Arab and we expect this resort to be highly sought-after, especially taking into account the tranquil appeal of its Maldivian-style overwater villas.”
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotel Group, commented, “The Middle East is a key market for Minor Hotel Group, both for outbound business to our properties worldwide and also to further expand our footprint within the region. We are delighted to be partnering with RAK Properties to add Ras Al Khaimah to our already well established UAE portfolio and look forward to working closely together to bring this new Anantara resort to the market.”
