Eagle Hills announces new project in Muscat

Muscat: Eagle Hills, a private real estate investment and development company, has announced its entry into Oman with the launch of Mandarin Oriental, Muscat. The property will be developed by Eagle Hills Muscat, a partnership between Eagle Hills Abu Dhabi and Izz International, and will be managed by the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.
Mandarin Oriental, Muscat, which is set to open in 2021, will feature 150 guestrooms and suites, five restaurants and bars, a spa and an outdoor swimming pool. A variety of banqueting and meeting spaces will also be available for social and business events, in addition to a one-of-a-kind ballroom offering spectacular views of the Oman Sea.
The property will also comprise 155 residences, with apartments ranging from 75 to 260 square metres in size. The residences at Mandarin Oriental are Oman’s first high-end branded residences.
The property will be located on the beach in a prime city location. The low-rise architectural design inspired by the Omani cultural legacy will take full advantage of the remarkable sea views.
Low Ping, CEO of Eagle Hills, said, “We are delighted to be venturing into the vibrant Omani market for the first time, and particularly in the capital, Muscat, where we aim to provide both residents and tourists with new levels of sophistication and service in partnership with the prestigious Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. Muscat is a beautiful destination that is steeped in heritage and we are honoured to have the opportunity to be part of the city’s future.”
James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental, added. “Muscat is an entrancing destination with character, charm and an abundance of visitor attractions. We are delighted to have the opportunity to expand our brand presence in the Arabian Peninsula with this exciting project in partnership with Eagle Hills. We look forward to bringing Mandarin Oriental’s legendary service standards to Muscat.”
Muscat is renowned for its promotion and preservation of the natural environment, customs and traditions of the region. Mandarin Oriental, Muscat, is a 20-minute drive from the airport and is based in a prestigious and central district with a mix of retail and leisure facilities in close proximity to the Royal Opera House, the Grand Mosque and Muttrah — the city’s traditional souk.
Since its inception in 2014, Eagle Hills has seen impressive growth, entering into agreements to support the redevelopment and reinvigoration of a number of cities in Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The company is currently developing projects in Bahrain, Jordan, Morocco, Oman, Serbia and UAE.
