An enchanting desert landscape, embraced by green mountains at North, meets the ocean along kilometers of ivory-white uncontaminated beaches, blessed by the nearby presence of the prestigious UNESCO archaeological site of Sumhuram. In the masterplan of the project, care is given to preserve or underline these landscape characters and the designs are born from an attentive research of traditional typologies, forms and materials.
The main objective is to create a touristic settlement covering a currently underserved market area in the Salalah region. Infrastructures adequate of receiving international tourism of the highest level guarantee peace, privacy, comfort, and an unparalleled richness of choices.
The project is composed by 4 hotels, the golf course and 350 villas, for a total of 1200 keys. The masterplan is conceived to allocate these functions in the best locations of this vast land creating a character and a mythology for each settlement.
