Oman's $600m tourism complex set for 2017 launch

MUSCAT, March 16, 2016

A $600-million luxury integrated tourism complex, being developed by Omran, the tourism development and investment arm of Oman, is set to welcome its first residents early next year, said a report.

Saraya Bandar Jissah, a mixed-use development coming up on a 2.2-sq-km area in Oman, will offer residential units, recreational facilities and two beachfront luxury hotels - a resort hotel and a boutique hotel - all situated on its breath-taking location in eastern Muscat, reported The Times of Oman.

The first phase of the project includes 224 properties in three separate residential zones, five-star hotels (to be run by The Jumeirah Group) and recreational facilities, it stated.

The project, which is nestled in a valley between the Al Hajar Mountains, is being developed by Omran in partnership with Saraya Oman, a subsidiary of Saraya Holdings.

Construction work at the five-star Jumeirah Group hotel at ITC Saraya Bandar Jissah is progressing well and the 206-room facility is expected to be ready in the beginning of 2017, said the report.

On the residential side, three zones separate the properties, but equally offer stunning views of the area, said the report.

Some 33 villas are located on the central island called Nameer Zone, which is surrounded by the canal and lagoon, while the Zaha Zone includes 169 villas and apartments, where the residents get to enjoy park views and finally the Wajd Zone residences (placed atop a cliff) which gives the residents a panoramic view of the ocean and ground below, it added.
