Manar Mall was the first mall in Ras Al Khaimah and its US$100 million expansion will be competed in December 2018. This will support Ras Al Khaimah in attracting one million tourists by 2019.
Manar Mall, the biggest shopping center in Ras Al Khaimah, will double its size. The gross leasable area will increase from 27,000m² to 55,000m² and provide room for more than 80 new retail outlets. There will also be a new carpark, a family entertainment center with the tallest indoor drop tower, a larger food court; and a new outdoor promenade. The 450m-long landscaped promenade at the mangroves will feature a selection of food and beverage outlets, dancing fountains and several entertainment options. Some of the exterior work on the mangrove-facing Manar Mall will have to be finalized in 2019. However, Manar Mall will be ready for its grand opening in December 2018.
Furthermore, Al Hamra will operate the planned Rove Hotel at its Manar Mall in Ras Al Khaimah. Rove Hotel Manar Mall will feature a 24-hour gym, a 24-hour convenience store, a 24-hour self-service laundromat and an all-day restaurant. The construction work for the 250-room Rove Hotel Manar Mall will begin later this year and is scheduled to be finalized in 2020.
