Wynn releases new images of Al Marjan IR, plans to open in ‘early 2027’

Wynn Resorts has released new mock-ups of its integrated resort under construction in the United Arab Emirates.

In a release on Monday, the company also revealed a photo showing the construction progress on the 1,542-room integrated resort.

Wynn Al Marjan Island is expected to ‘open to the public in early 2027’.

The 300-meter tower is currently about 40 meters tall and is expected to be topped off in the fourth quarter of 2025.

The UAE’s first casino has been the cause of much debate, with the emirate’s Tourism Development Authority even creating a specific division for the regulation of “integrated resorts in the emirate”.

While authorities have been hushed about whether Wynn would actually be able to operate a casino, a past company release confirm it will have ‘a gaming area’ and that the resort will offer ‘abundant and layered experiences’.

The latest release doesn’t specifically mention details of the casino, referring instead that it ‘is anticipated to be the first integrated gaming resort in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region’.

The IR project is located in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, close to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
