Muscat: A number of units at Oman’s premier resort village, Muscat Bay, will be handed over to their new owners in the coming weeks.

Maitha bint Saif Al Mahrouqi, the undersecretary of the Ministry of Tourism (MoT), recently visited Muscat Bay, accompanied by several senior officials from the Ministry.

Commenting on the project, Al Mahrouqi said, “It is really exciting to see such a stunning project getting its final touches, as it is prepared to welcome residents over the course of the upcoming weeks. We are delighted to see this happen.

“At the same time, the Sultanate has been receiving positive feedback, and the latest statistics show an increase in the number of tourists visiting the country. I strongly believe that Muscat Bay, developed by the government in partnership with the private sector, represented by the Omran and Saraya Oman Holding Company, respectively, will be helpful for Oman tourism. The project is also in line with the government’s vision to achieve economic diversification through the effective use of the tourism sector.”

The visit came as a part of the Ministry’s follow-up of various tourism projects, to keep itself updated with the latest developments, and to meet with the projects’ executive management.

During the visit, Al Mahrouqi met Sheikh Hamoud bin Sultan Al Hosani, CEO of Muscat Bay, senior management members, and project engineers.

The undersecretary was updated on the progress of work, completed phases, and expected delivery dates, as per the schedule of the project.

Al Mahrouqi took a tour of Muscat Bay, starting from the Sales Centre to the Resort Village, ending at a special display villa built exclusively as a showcase model for customers.

Sheikh Hamoud Al Hosani pointed out that the work at Muscat Bay was progressing according to schedule, despite the economic challenges the region was witnessing. The project has some unique and attractive features, in terms of location and design, which makes investing in it a golden opportunity.

Muscat Bay is an integrated tourism complex owned by the Omran and Saraya Oman Holding Company.

The project is made up of five residential zones, including Wajd, Zaha, Nameer, Safa, and Naeem.

It has villas, duplexes, and individual apartments, as well as two five-star hotels run by the region’s leading hotel operator – Jumeirah. In addition, there will be a central entertainment village with various facilities.

The integrated tourism complex will welcome its first group of residents in the coming weeks, alongside the opening of the first Jumeirah Muscat Bay Resort hote, which includes 206 rooms and a number of multi-purpose halls.

Additionally, it houses a health centre, diving centre, and a high-quality care centre.

The first phase of the project, expected to be completed this year, will consist of three plots comprising 260 different residences, a hotel, and an entertainment village called ‘Parkland’.Situated in a secluded valley and flanked by the Al Hajar Mountains and the Arabian Gulf, Muscat Bay is a peaceful natural haven that offers the best of both worlds – a place to escape the stresses and strains of daily life, alongside easy access to modern facilities.

Muscat’s City Centre is only 15 minutes from the resort, with Oman’s main international airport just a 30-minute drive.

With reputable, world-class shareholders and strong investor benefits, including strong rental yield and capital growth opportunities, Muscat Bay presents a secure and highly attractive proposition for both investors and homeowners.

With solid sales of the Phase One residences, the development is widely considered a jewel in Oman’s real estate scene, attracting investors and new home buyers from the Sultanate, the GCC, and the international market.
