Hilton Hampton Debuts In Ras Al Khaimah, UAE

Hampton by Hilton Marjan Island has opened its doors to guests, marking the debut of Hampton by Hilton in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.

Located on a 750-metre beach, the hotel, the largest Hampton by Hilton in the world, featuring 515 guest rooms, boasts spectacular sea and island views.

Half of the rooms are interconnected and, thanks to technology, guests can book and instantly confirm at least two connecting rooms.

Ideal for groups of friends or families, the hotel’s interiors are inspired by a “day at the beach” – encouraging good vibes with colourful boat paddles hung in guest rooms and surf boards adorning the restaurants and public areas.

Jochem-Jan Sleiffer, President, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, Hilton, said:“Ras Al Khaimah attracts visitors for many different types of leisure trip, from adventure to culture to sun and beach. With 800,000+ visitors arriving in the emirate in 2020**, this latest addition to our portfolio of six hotels already welcoming guests in RAK will no doubt attract more travellers to the Northern Emirate from both the UAE and beyond.”

For those looking to keep fit, the hotel has a variety of leisure facilities including an infinity pool and a state-of-the-art fitness facility.
“With its rich history, culture and natural attractions, Ras Al Khaimah is a great addition to our global portfolio of nearly 2,700 Hampton by Hilton destinations,” added Shruti Gandhi Buckley, global head, Hampton by Hilton.

To celebrate the opening, Hampton by Hilton Marjan Island is offering rates starting from AED 299/ under £60 for bookings through to 31st August. In addition, those who book three nights or more get an instant prize, and kids below 12 years of age stay and eat free!

Hampton by Hilton Marjan Island is located 77 kilometres from Dubai International Airport and is in close proximity to Ras Al Khaimah city centre, Al Hamra Mall and Al Hamra Golf Club. For adventure seekers, Jebal Jais, the UAE’s highest peak, is located just 86 kilometres from the property.
