A new property in Muscat, the capital of Oman, is in Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts‘ development pipeline.
The luxury hospitality company and Oman Tourism Development Company (OMRAN Group), the executive arm of the Sultanate of Oman for tourism development, have announced plans for the Four Seasons Resort and Private Residences Muscat, Oman.
The property will be created through the redevelopment of a former yacht club and marina into 200 rooms and suites and 100 private residences. Guests will have access to a private beach, five dining outlets and indoor and outdoor pools with cabanas. Facilities will include a tennis center, spa, fitness center, extensive indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, a bride’s room, business center, business departure lounge, and prayer rooms.
“The Middle East continues to be an integral part of Four Seasons growth strategy, as we look for opportunities to offer unmatched Four Seasons experiences in exciting and dynamic destinations such as Muscat,” says Bart Carnahan, president, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “We are excited to be a part of OMRAN Group’s long-term vision for the future development of Oman’s tourism landscape, further accelerating the strategic growth of its capital city and continuing to attract luxury guests and residents from around the world with a brand new Four Seasons offering.”
