RAK Hospitality has confirmed the sale of one of its hotel properties, the 715-key, all-inclusive Rixos Bab Al Bahr in Ras Al Khaimah, to Aldar Properties via its Aldar Investment for a total of $209.6 million.

Alison Grinnell, Chief Executive Officer of RAK Hospitality Holding, told the media that RAK Hospitality Holding, through its hotel portfolio subsidiary, is delivering on its development and diversification plan.

During the pandemic, Rixos Bab Al Bahr showed incredible resilience and emerged stronger with a unique ultra-all-inclusive offering.

As the Emirate implements its ambition to become the regional leader in ecologically responsible tourism, drawing more than 3 million annual tourists by 2030, we foresee more upside.

He said that they are delighted to add Rixos Bab Al Bahr to their portfolio of income-producing hotel and hospitality properties.
