Currie & Brown will project manage construction of a new InterContinental Hotel at Mina Al Arab in Ras Al Khaimah.
The 350-key resort, set to open in late 2019, 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.”
Once open, the InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah Mina Al Arab Resort and neighbouring Anantara Mina Al Arab Ras Al Khaimah Resort, also scheduled for completion in late 2019, will support Ras Al Khaimah’s goal of welcoming 2.9 million visitors by 2025.
