“Ras Al Khaimah is a breath of fresh air for domestic and international tourists alike, with its unique blend of natural beauty, history, and adventure. The emirate is known for its remarkable landscapes and is home to the highest mountain range in the UAE — making it the perfect location for an extended stay to relax, hike, wander, explore, and more. Recognizing RAK’s increasing potential in becoming a leading extended-stay destination, driven by RAK Tourism’s efforts in solidifying the emirates’ position as the region’s fastest-growing tourist destination, we have introduced Staybridge Suites Hotel Mina Al Arab — which reaffirms our commitment to providing exceptional experiences to our guests. We look forward to warmly welcoming travelers to experience the unmatched hospitality of this hotel and the exceptional beauty of RAK.”

The development forms part of RAK Properties’ broader master plan for Hayat Island, with a wide range of stay offerings, as well as luxurious shopping, dining, and entertainment facilities to its residents and guests. Staybridge Suites Mina Al Arab will offer a genuine holiday lifestyle experience while providing the conveniences of everyday life, further reinforcing Mina Al Arab’s position as a people-centric lifestyle destination in line with RAK Vision 2030.

Mr. Sameh Muhtadi, CEO of RAK Properties, said that, “We are delighted to partner with one of the world’s leading hotel companies, IHG Hotels & Resorts, to open our first Staybridge Suites Mina Al Arab in Ras Al Khaimah. We’re witnessing a trend of blended stay, where guests arrive for business but then stay longer for personal travel, and we are plugging the gap for a long-serviced stay in the emirate.”

“This concept will help us diversify and enhance our hospitality portfolio on Hayat Island, as well as contribute to our food & beverage offering as we look to add considerable additional appeal to our overall hospitality offering on Mina Al Arab,” Mr. Muhtadi added.
