Existing properties will be reflagged following an extensive renovation
Ras Al Khaimah-based lifestyle developer and investment company Al Hamra is to partner with Deutsche Hospitality to bring two new hotels to the emirate.
The partnership with Al Hamra will bring the German hospitality brand to Ras Al Khaimah for the first time. Al Hamra Residences and Al Hamra Village will be rebranded to Steigenberger Residences and MAXX by Deutsche Hospitality following an extensive renovation.
Al Hamra group CEO Benoy Kurien said: “Since inception, Al Hamra has focused on strengthening not just the property landscape of the Emirate but also contributed significantly to building a robust hospitality infrastructure that serves the requirements of guests from around the world.
“With tourism today a cornerstone of Ras Al Khaimah’s development strategy, we build iconic hospitality assets as well as partner with global players to bring world-class hospitality experiences to tourists from across the world while also attracting inward investments strengthening the economic ecosystem of the emirate.”
He added: “We are happy to welcome Deutsche Hospitality to Ras Al Khaimah. Our partnerships with global hospitality firms is a strong testament to the attractiveness of Ras Al Khaimah as a business hub and its growing reputation as a leading tourism destination.
“We continue to see a consistent increase in the number of international tourist arrivals as well as staycation guests from across the UAE to our hospitality assets. The re-opening of these properties is at an ideal time as the Emirate experiences renewed tourism activity as Covid-19 related restrictions on the travel sector subside.”
Steigenberger Residences will feature 143 units ranging from studio apartments to five-bedroom penthouses with views of the 18-hole Al Hamra Golf Course and the Arabian Gulf. Meanwhile, MAXX by Deutsche Hospitality will have 219 rooms and suites spread across 52 villas in addition to several leisure facilities including restaurants and a European-style pub.
Both hotels will be set in Al Hamra Village, which is also home to properties including Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah, Ritz Carlton Al Hamra Beach and the upcoming Sofitel Al Hamra.
