RAK Properties, one of the leading real estate developers in the UAE, announced the appointment of Currie & Brown as a project manager on InterContinental Hotel at Mina Al Arab in Ras Al Khaimah.
Operating under the InterContinental Hotels Group’s (IHG) luxury brand, the 350-key resort, set to open in late 2019, will feature a variety of luxury rooms and suites, five-star facilities facing the Arabian Sea, a health club and spa, two pools, a well-equipped gym and specialty restaurants. It is located on the recently announced Hayat Island, RAK Properties’ next major development in Ras Al Khaimah.
Mohammad Sultan Al Qadi, managing director of RAK Properties, said: “We are pleased to announce Currie & Brown as a project manager for one of our hotels within the masterplanned Mina Al Arab development. InterContinental will boost Mina Al Arab’s offering as a top tourist destination in the United Arab Emirates and we are confident that this partnership will continue to set the bar.”
Michael James, director at Currie & Brown, added: “We are proud to be associated with RAK Properties as a project manager. We are privileged to support RAK Properties once again in delivering this world-class facility. Our strong experience in the hotel industry will help to bring significant added value to this project.”
RAK Properties’ commitment to developing quality communities and hotel properties across the UAE, with a particular emphasis on Ras Al Khaimah, aligns with the country’s various activities and initiatives to attract international visitors. Once open, the InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah Mina Al Arab Resort and neighbouring Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort, scheduled for completion in late 2019, will support Ras Al Khaimah’s goal of welcoming 2.9 million visitors by 2025.
Mina Al Arab’s prime location and planned leisure projects will ensure the success of the announced resorts and future investment opportunities. In addition to the range of hotels, resorts, townhouses and eco-tourism possibilities, Mina Al Arab is made complete by a host of amenities which complement the community and make it the ideal home and the perfect retreat. From strategically-placed retail outlets, to a world-class marina, Mina Al Arab is a thoughtful meeting of practical amenities and exceptional hospitality for both residents and visitors.
