RAK appoints Turkish firm to run Bab Al Bahr resort

Ras Al Khaimah Hospitality Group has appointed Turkish operator Rixos Hotels to manage the 700-room all-inclusive Bab Al Bahr resort scheduled to open in October.
The Group, set up at the end of 2011 by the RAK government as part of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Investment and Development Authority, is investing around AED300m ($81.7m) in developing the Bab Al Bahr project.
Rixos Bab Al Bahr is expected to be the “the first all inclusive property of this magnitude in the UAE”, according to a statement published by Hotelier Middle East.
Speaking to Hotelier Middle East in November, Victor Louis, chief operating officer, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Investment and Development Authority, said the government of Ras Al Khaimah was investing AED600m ($163.4m) into hotel and tourism projects.
The emirate is aiming to increase visitor count from 600,000 in 2010 to 1.2 million by 2013 and to increase the Emirate’s total hotel and resort room inventory to 10,000 keys by 2016.
“Approximately 50 percent of the assigned budget is being invested in the Bab Al Bahr project, which is a multi-faceted development due to open in October 2012,” Louis said.
“This project includes accommodation for residents and visitors alike with leisure facilities including a nearby golf-course, exotic gardens, beach parks, beach activities and a la carte dining options,” he added.
Around 40 percent of the budget is being invested into the development of another luxury hotel, Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah, which is also expected to open in October.

The new Bab Al Bahr Service Charges are disgraceful and daylight robbery. AED 20 per square foot. This is more expensive than some places in Dubai.
Al Hamra (was called RAKEEN) still own a lot of properties and have rented them out as well as Al Hamra Staff staying there. Al Hamra does not want to pay the service charges for properties they own so are getting the private owners to subsidise Al Hamra charges.
Definitely a rip off and then the sill fools wonder why it is empty and nobody wants to buy there.
Al Hamra has totally ruined it all by initially putting rents up and now service charges. Most people have moved to Min Al Arab, cheaper on rent and service charges etc.
AL HAMRA are rubbish in everything they do (look at the finish they did on Royal Breeze development, terrible).
Do not pay the service charges on Bab Al Bahr and see what they can do....to55ers.
