Almal Real Estate Development Announces The Unexpected Al Marjan Island Hotel & Residences

Almal Real Estate Development announced the launch of its spectacular hotel and residence project on Al Marjan Island, Ras Al Khaimah. Named “The Unexpected Al Marjan Island Hotel & Residences”, this remarkable development was unveiled at an event held at the Mandarin Oriental on May 16th, welcoming a prestigious group of investors, partners, and stakeholders.

Led by Almal Real Estate Development, the project will be executed in collaboration with two esteemed brands. The company has recently partnered with Palladium Hotel Group, a renowned hotel operator with over five decades of experience and a presence in seven countries managing nine successful brands such as Ushuaïa Unexpected Hotels, to introduce the project under the brand The Unexpected Hotels & Residences. This concept is inspired by its properties in Ibiza and is the first of its kind in the UAE. Additionally, the company has appointed the Design & Architecture bureau (DAR) as the lead design consultant for the project, entrusted with managing all aspects of the property’s lifecycle.

Located on Al Marjan Island, the project will be a distinctive addition to this beachfront locale, offering a fusion of sophisticated elements and contemporary design, and delivering the immersive experience that The Unexpected Hotels & Residences brand is renowned for. The property will feature 422 hotel and residential units, all providing unparalleled comfort and privacy with uninterrupted views of the Arabian Gulf. Positioned less than a minute from the Wynn resort, guests will relish extraordinary vistas of both the Wynn resort and the serene sea. Amenities will include an infinity rooftop pool, a vibrant beach club, a spa and wellness center, pocket gardens, five intimate dining areas offering authentic and international cuisine, and more.

The ground floor amenities at The Unexpected Al Marjan Island Hotel & Residences offer an array of experiences, blending leisure, entertainment, and convenience. Guests can enjoy the Beach Club, pool area, retail outlets, and dining options, all designed to elevate their stay. The first floor caters to VIP guests with exclusive suites and private pools, while the rooftop presents indulgent dining at the Rooftop Restaurant & Bar Terrace, alongside serene tranquility in the VIP Garden Platform and various pool decks and spa facilities for ultimate rejuvenation and entertainment.

At The Unexpected Al Marjan Island Hotel & Residences, architectural beauty is reimagined through a dialogue with nature, creating a sanctuary where luxury meets the rhythmic patterns of the sea. The design, influenced by the serene daytime coastline and the vibrant nightlife, employs light-colored materials to create a clean, relaxed atmosphere. As the sun sets, ambient lighting transforms the space, offering a captivating experience. The architecture seamlessly blends with the island’s beauty, providing a tranquil retreat that evolves from day to night.

The Unexpected Al Marjan Island Hotel & Residences embodies this transition, utilizing light materials and innovative technologies to reflect the island’s dual nature. Dynamic lighting elements and a canopy of backlit fabrics mimic the sea’s gentle movements, enhancing the sensory experience. This thoughtful design ensures that the architecture integrates with the coastal setting by day and comes alive at night, inviting exploration and enchantment.

Since its establishment in 2022, Almal Real Estate Development has remained committed to elevating the standards of luxury hospitality and real estate in the UAE. In February, the company received the ‘Private Villa Project of the Year’ award for its exceptional work on the Harrisoni La Mer project, comprising two luxury villas on La Mer Island. Looking ahead, Almal Real Estate Development envisions a bright future for the industry, contributing to the UAE’s broader economic diversification strategy and strengthening its position in the global tourism market.
