Marriott International, Inc. today announced that it has signed an agreement to introduce the iconic St. Regis brand to Oman.
Expected to open in 2022, the 271-room St. Regis Al Mouj Muscat Resort is planned to rise on a beachfront plot within Oman’s lifestyle and leisure destination, Al Mouj Muscat. The project also includes plans for 170 branded residential units.
“The signing of St. Regis in Oman is a natural progression for the brand’s portfolio, as the brand continues to become one of the most recognised and sought-after luxury hotel brands in the region,” says Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East & Africa for Marriott International. “We’re thrilled to bring this significant project to Oman, especially to this strategic location in one of the most desired waterfront masterplans in the city of Muscat.”
Amenities include an outdoor pool, spa, health facilities and a leisure club, and five specialty restaurants including the iconic St. Regis bar, inspired by the original King Cole Bar at The St. Regis New York. The beachfront location will also comprise Al Mouj Golf – an 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Greg Norman.
Plans for the resort also include a 1,100-square-meter ballroom for corporate gatherings, special events or weddings.
The project includes 170 branded residences, which are expected to comprise a mix of apartments, penthouses and townhouses. The residences are also anticipated to be completed by 2022.
