Led by Eng. Wael bin Ahmed Al Lawati, Omran CEO, the Governor inspected the steady progress that has been achieved to date.
On site, H.E. Al Busaidi said, “The Khasab Hotel is a prime example of the infrastructure needed to boost tourism and economic activity in the Governorate which echoes the 9th five-year development plan to 2020 for the nation. Like a true partner, Omran has worked very closely with us to ensure these projects position Musandam as a hub for ecotourism and a draw for nature enthusiasts. This will undeniably result in long-term impact on sustainable development, enabling citizens to fully reap the fruits of these investments.”
Eng. Al Lawati expressed, “The Musandam peninsula geography is unique and memorable. Its dramatic limestone cliffs that plunge into pristine fjords give visitors an authentic experience and showcases Oman’s untouched natural beauty. The Khasab Hotel project will pave the path to additional sustainable projects that we have planned. It will not only encourage domestic tourism but also drive people from neighboring countries and beyond to experience the majesty of this land. On a local front, the project will generate meaningful employment opportunities for promising young Omanis, attract new facilities and strengthen the local supply chain.”
He added, “In all of our projects, community engagement plays a pivotal role in all stages of our cycle. The Khasab project is one of many which will deliver long-term benefits to local communities and support the long-term success of Oman’s tourism sector.”
Situated near the center of town and the local port, the LEED accredited Khasab Hotel will cater to the mid-high end market, offering guest rooms ranging from studios and duplex rooms to suites. After breaking ground earlier this year, the site has completed 337,014 man hours without LTI in 254 days. During this time, all excavation foundation works and super structures were completed.
As part of its asset management portfolio in the Musandam Governorate, Omran operates the Golden Tulip Khasab and the Golden Tulip Dibba. The company’s considered and responsible approach has resulted in a polished track record of building the best projects, safely and to the highest quality levels, and managing them to the best possible standards.
