Marriott International, Inc. and Eagle Hills have agreed to open the first Ritz-Carlton Reserve in the UAE, on Ramhan Island in Abu Dhabi. The Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand currently has only seven properties worldwide, including in Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Indonesia, Puerto Rico, and Mexico.

Slated to open in 2029, the Reserve on Ramhan Island will offer 50 luxury villas, including floating villas with waterfront views. The island, part of a larger development project, aims to attract travellers seeking luxury and natural beauty in the UAE. With over 4 million square metres of development area, Ramhan Island will feature residential villas, marina residences, and luxury hotels, all connected through a network of waterways. Residents and tourists can enjoy a range of leisure amenities and dining options in this ultra-luxury destination.

Ritz-Carlton Reserve provides a luxurious and unique escape for discerning travellers who value human connection and immersion in local culture and environment. Each location of the Reserve property is carefully chosen to ensure it offers a relaxed and intimate setting that incorporates Indigenous flavours and personalised service. Ideal for those seeking an exclusive and unforgettable getaway, Reserve properties promise an unexpected and enriching experience.

“Together with Eagle Hills, we look forward to bringing Ritz-Carlton Reserve to the UAE and offering intimate and transformative experiences in an ultra-luxury setting,” says Sandeep Walia, Chief Operating Officer – Middle East, Marriott International. “This monumental signing marks an important addition to our portfolio in the country where we continue to see a strong demand for luxury experiences.”
