Work has been ongoing in the past months, despite the challenges of the Covid-19 crisis. The hotel will be a vibrant addition to the hospitality sector of the Emirate when it opens next year.”

The construction of Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan Island is undertaken by a team of over 520 skilled workers and professionals on-site. As of end-June, nearly 1.45 million manhours without loss-time incidents were recorded.

A total of 460 working piles have been erected for the project by NSCC.
