“S&T Interiors and Contracting has been a key partner to the project with a joint venture with UAE-headquartered Al Jaber Engineering & Contracting (ALEC), to deliver turnkey construction and high-end joinery and gypsum works for the resort. The scope of work covered all areas including the presidential suite, villas, lounge, library, main building, restaurants, pool, pool terrace and back offices.
“This luxurious resort has 33 swimming pools, 22 gated villas with swimming pools, and specialty Italian, Persian and Omani restaurants.
