About the Developer

Marjan is known for its high-end, transformative developments, one of which is the luxury archipelago of Al Marjan Island. By leveraging natural assets and strategic master planning, the man-made island has positioned RAK as a leading tourism and investment hub, rapidly attracting foreign investors and international visitors.

Additionally, the development will feature three hotels boasting over 1,000 keys. For the residents' convenience, the community will have multiple parks and green spaces, diverse retail and entertainment facilities, and a network of interconnected buildings with over 1,000 visitor parking spaces.
