The new luxury resort in Dhofar brings striking and authentic architecture framed by lush tropical gardens, walkways surrounded by towering palms and eye-catching water features to create an air of tranquility and serenity.
Comprising 136 rooms and villas, the resort offers indulgent luxury with handcrafted furnishings and rich textures throughout to enhance the contemporary Middle Eastern ambience. Overlooking either the Arabian Sea, lagoon or picturesque gardens, each room is equipped with contemporary comforts including interactive LED TVs, spacious walk-in dressing rooms and luxurious Amouage bath products, evoking the region’s indigenous fragrances. The resort’s 40 premier and deluxe rooms all feature a spacious bedroom, en suite bathroom with rain-shower and separate bathtub, walk-in dressing room and media hubs with portable bluetooth speakers alongside a terrace or balcony.
Eight one-bedroom villas and 88 one and two-bedroom pool villas entice guests with personalised villa host services and separate living areas, with pool villas benefiting from private temperature-controlled swimming pools, the first of their kind in Salalah. The exclusive three-bedroom Royal Beach Villa is the epitome of luxury, boasting commanding views of the sandy bay and idyllic lagoon.
Dr Mohamed al Barwani, chairman, MB Holding Company and chairman of the board, Al Baleed Resort, owning company of the resort, announced that the resort is a joint venture between MB Group and Omran, being developed by Musstir. “On Wednesday the resort began welcoming guests for business from within Oman and the GCC as well as international guests from Europe and beyond,” Dr Barwani said.
