Luxury Resorts

Luxury-resortsThe Wave” is a project to develop the coastline of Muscat. Oman Tourism Development Company (OTDC) is the public company charged with promoting this integrated resort. The beachfront residential development, which is set to occupy a 2.5 million m² area in the heart of the natural growth corridor of the Oman’s capital, will encompass infrastructure development and site improvement, a signature 18-hole green golf course, a 300-berth marina, 1,200 rooms in four luxury hotels, villas and apartments offering some 3,000 residences, retail and restaurant outlets, and a host of other facilities.

Just a few miles away from Muscat’s Seeb International Airport and covering 7 km of prime beachfront, the resort and residential offering will be completed in two phases. The first stage with  the launch of major construction activity at the site, including work on harbour walls, land reclamation and site preparation, together with utilities and the work for the golf course. The overall project will take six years to complete.

Oman is also investing billions of dollars in a massive tourist resort near the Arabian Sea coast: “The Blue City” (Al-Madina Al-Zarqa), a new city at a prime seaside location. Covering a 34 km² picturesque site along the Al Sawadi seafront, 100 km northwest of Muscat, the project is being created to house 250,000 people and cater to up to two million tourists per year upon completion in 2020. Blue City will feature tourist resorts as well as extensive education, healthcare and sports facilities, set amidst the most striking landscapes in the Arabian Peninsula. The project site lies framed by two wadis having a total of 15 km of natural sand beach coastline with sand dunes and deep seawater creek.

Phase 1 of the Blue City will include four hotels, two world-class 18-hole championship golf courses, a tourist village, with a contemporary Arabian souq, around 5,000 villa/apartment units, an aquarium, a heritage village, a shopping complex, an amphitheatre and a city hall. The first phase is due for completion by 2012. The entire development is targeted for completion in 15 years over 10 phases.
