Ras Al Khaimah set to welcome new Hilton in 2026

Hilton's flagship brand is set to arrive in the northernmost Emirate in Q4 2026, adding 350 keys and expanding its 80-hotel Middle Eastern portfolio.

Signing an agreement with M Hospitality, Hilton will bring its flagship brand to Marjan Island, Ras Al Khaimah. Carlos Khneisser, VP of development in Middle East & Africa for Hilton, said the company "see[s] great opportunity in the emirate and its leisure hubs such as Marjan Island. We currently have two hotels in operation on the island and Hilton Marjan Island Beach Resort & Spa will add significantly to our offering."

315 spacious king rooms and 35 suites will adorn the Hilton Marjan Island Beach Resort & Spa when it opens, along with six restaurants and bars and a whole host of facilities overlooking the Arabian Gulf.

The property will bring Hilton's UAE presence to a 36-hotel-strong one, with five in Ras Al Khaimah alone.
