Let’s find out why!
WHAT MAKES THE RAS AL KHAIMAH SUSPENDED BRIDGE SPECIAL?
This suspended bridge is being dubbed as the longest suspended bridge in the Northern Emirates. Part of the Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan, the 36-metre long suspended bridge connects the hotel’s two buildings.
Held together by four solid 4-metre high trusses, weighing 55 tonnes each, the Ras Al Khaimah suspended bridge is installed 44.2 metres above the ground.
But that’s not all – this is no ordinary bridge. The Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan suspended bridge in Ras Al Khaimah is designed to house eight lavish hotel rooms that will offer guests an unhindered vantage point of the Al Marjan Island landscape and skyline.
