July 20, 2018 - Ras al-Khaimah
Luxury hotel units at Al Mahra Resort by Cristal can now be purchased in Bitcoin or similar digital currency.
The beautiful 4-star luxury resort is the first hotel project in the Middle East to be available through crypto currency.
Located in the heart of Al Marjan Island in Ras Al Khaimah, the resort is being developed at an investment of AED 350 million and is expected to open by 2020.
Featuring 548 beautifully designed and furnished rooms, suites and villas equipped with the latest technology and all modern comforts, the property is offering buyers the opportunity to purchase the units under strata title.
Onsite facilities at the stunning beach-front resort include a trendy lobby café, high-tech meeting rooms, all-day-dining restaurant, rooftop shisha lounge, wellness club, gym, spa for men and women, kids club, water sports facilities, an infinity pool and covered parking.
Owner and chairman, FAM Holding, Dr. Faisal Ali Mousa Al Naqbi declared: “Some of the biggest names worldwide are warming up to cryptocurrency, therefore it is logical for us to offer people the opportunity to pay in bitcoin or similar currency rather than just fiat currency.
Cryptocurrency has radically improved the transparency, speed and security of property transactions with smart contracts, hence it is really ground-breaking to do what we are doing.
Of course, paying in bitcoin for this development is just an option. At the same time, we are very pleased to be working with the Cristal Group to open this resort. We believe that Cristal’s premium service and brand will add exceptional value to our property.”
