COME July the Sifawy Boutique Hotel at Jebel Sifah, Oman, the first hospitality project of Muriya, will be ready to welcome guests.
With 55 guest rooms and 25 apartments and surrounded by the Arabian Sea and the Hajjar mountain range, the main attraction of the hotel will be its marina.
Expected to start welcoming boats within the next couple of months, the marina has a total area of more than 75,000 sq m and can accommodate vessels ranging from six to 60 m in length.
The hotel adds to the attraction of this picturesque location, which is only 45 km away from Muscat. It is a perfect getaway for weekends or even longer stays.
Jebel Sifah has a dramatic effect on visitors, with a drive through the fishing village, mountains and sea that add to the magic of this fascinating destination.
The hotel authorities are also working on an 18-hole PGA golf course facing the hotel and sea and other attractions include a large swimming pool, kids’ pool, Jacuzzi, Wi-Fi, and an international restaurant that can accommodate 160 people.
The Sifawy Boutique Hotel will also be home to luxurious freehold apartments and villas, with full foreign ownership rights entitling owners to residency in Oman. Designed by Italian architect Alfredo Freda, the residences will have a modern finish with breathtaking views of the sea and marina.
Muriya was established in Oman in March 2006, as a joint venture between Egypt’s Orascom Hotels & Development and Omran. It is currently investing in four major projects in Oman – Jebel Sifah and Salalah Beach and two integrated tourism complexes, City Walk in Muscat and an exclusive eco-lodge on As Sodah Island.
