Ras Al Khaimah aims to add 4,617 hotel rooms in the next five years as part of its ambitious expansion plans for the hospitality sector.

The emirate's Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) said in five years' time the total number of hotel rooms could exceed 12,700 across more than 50 hotels and resorts.

It also plans to diversify its hospitality offerings by setting up unique projects on Jebel Jais, Marjan Island and in newer locations.

In an interview with the Emirates News Agency (WAM), Raki Phillips, CEO of RAKTDA, highlighted their commitment to support the emirate’s hotels in implementing the country’s Emiratisation programme and attracting citizens to work in tourism and hospitality.

Ras Al Khaimah welcomed over a million visitors in 2019, and is expected to exceed those pre-pandemic levels this year.
