Scheduled to open in 2015, Crowne Plaza Resort Ras Al Khaimah will feature nine food and beverage outlets including an all-day dining restaurant with show kitchen, an alfresco dining terrace, a cigar lounge, two coffee shops, a pool bar, and traditional bar and nightclub.

The resort will become the second IHG managed hotel in Ras Al Khamiah when it opens, with an InterContinental due to open in 2014.
