Ras Al Khaimah-based hotel developer, RAK AMI Hotel, has revealed that overall construction on its flagship project - the Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan Island – has reached 40%.
Set to be completed by September 2021, structural works on the Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan Island is progressing as scheduled with 1.45 million manhours without loss-time incidents.
