Mandarin Oriental announces new project in Oman

MUSCAT, May 3, 2018

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced plans for a new resort and branded residences in Muscat, Oman.

Expected to open in 2021, the project will be developed by Eagle Hills Muscat, a partnership between Eagle Hills Abu Dhabi and Izz International, and will be managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.

Mandarin Oriental, Muscat will feature 150 guestrooms and suites, five restaurants and bars, a Spa at Mandarin Oriental and an outdoor swimming pool. A variety of banqueting and meeting spaces will accommodate social and business events.

The group will also manage 155 Residences at Mandarin Oriental, which will feature some of the most select private apartments in the capital ranging from 75 to 260-sq-m. The Residences at Mandarin Oriental are being introduced for the first time in the region, representing Oman’s first high-end branded residences.

The property will be located on the beach in a prime city location and the low-rise architectural design will take full advantage of the views over the Arabian sea.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to expand our brand presence on the Arabian Peninsula with this exciting project in partnership with Eagle Hills,” said James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental. “We look forward to bringing Mandarin Oriental’s legendary service standards to Muscat,” he added.

“We are proud to be entering the Omani market, with our first project in the country. As we take this step, we are pleased to be working in partnership with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, one of the most prestigious names in hospitality,” said Low Ping, CEO of Eagle Hills. “We are confident that, together, we will set new benchmarks for tourism and residential living in Muscat, he added.

Mandarin Oriental, Muscat will be a 20- minute drive from the airport and will be based in a prestigious and central district with a mix of retail and leisure facilities, including the nearby Royal Opera House, the Grand Mosque and Muttrah, the city’s traditional souk. - TradeArabia News Service
