WOW Resorts and JW Marriott are set to introduce the JW Marriott Al Marjan Island Resort & JW Marriott Residences Al Marjan Island. This venture marks WOW Resorts' entry into the UAE, with plans for further properties in Asian markets. Upon completion, this addition to Marriott International's luxury collection, valued at USD 1.3 billion (INR 130 crores), establishes a significant presence on Ras Al Khaimah's Al Marjan Island—a favoured destination for tourists and investors. The island's thriving real estate market and waterfront appeal have attracted global investors, making it a sought-after location for profitable investments. Designed by acclaimed architects from Los Angeles and Dubai, the property is set to make a notable mark.

The launch event in the UAE saw WOW CEO and founder Bhupender aka Bruce Patel, a first-generation Indian-American, joined by Marriott International representatives and Arch. Abdulla Al Abdouli, CEO of Marjan.

“Our collaboration with Marriott International and our venture on Al Marjan Island represents a new chapter in our journey. With the demand for waterfront living on the rise, we are committed to optimising and elevating the experiences of all our cherished guests and residents as we start this project in the UAE, set on Al Marjan Island. This is a prime investment destination in the region and key markets like India. India's proximity to the UAE and large segment of HNWIs makes this beautiful property attractive for families to invest in," said CEO and founder Bhupender Patel.

Opening in 2026

With its launch in late 2026, the resort will have 300 guest rooms and 524 residences, tailored for prospective homeowners, travellers and nature enthusiasts, particularly those from key markets like India and Europe.
