Hill International has been awarded a contract by RAK Properties PJSC to provide project management services for the construction of a luxury resort at Mina Al Arab in the Ras Al Khaimah emirate of the UAE.
Scheduled for completion in late 2022, the five-star Anantara Resort Hotel is planned as a 71,000-sq-m, 174-key resort on the edge of tidal wetlands and an ecological reserve, with a hotel, beach villas, restaurants and a conference centre.
"Destination projects such as the Anantara Resort are a specialty of Hill’s throughout the Emirates and the Middle East," said Abdo Kardous, Hill International’s Middle East regional president. "Our team will bring the best practices from our resort experience to manage the construction of RAK Properties’ latest destination successfully."
"The return of tourism is certainly a leading indicator that the economic recovery is underway," says Hill chief executive Raouf S. Ghali.
