Movenpick Resort Al Marjan Island
al Marjan Island L.L.C
Ras Al Khaima, United Arab Emirates
Situated along 300m of pristine coastline with open views towards the Arabian Gulf, The Movenpick Resort Al Marjan Island sets a new benchmark for hospitality in Ras Al Khaimah. The juxtaposed massing of the low rise structures are oriented to maximize views towards the sea – framed by sunrise and sunset while minimizing southern exposure. Continuous balconies extend the guestrooms from inside to out while providing self-shading to ensure comfort and minimize energy consumption in the cooler months. The iconic volume spanning between the two towers give the building a unique identity – framing the lobby below and setting the tone for a signature restaurant with a vibrant roof terrace. Chalets along the peninsula cater to families and those seeking a level of exclusivity with dedicated pool and beach club. The minimal material palate of the facade translates seamlessly to the interiors with focus on refined details and ergonomics. Architecture and interiors that are essential – deferring to context with a landscape that moves seamlessly from inside to out – celebrating the environment in as a collection of memorable experience.
