Construction on the beach resort will begin later this year.

Located on the beach, Shaza Salalah will feature a presidential villa, 80 luxury villas with private pools, 80 furnished hotel apartments, and 130 hotel rooms facing the Indian Ocean, many of which will have their own private 'sky pool'.

The property will also unveil the largest luxury ballroom in Salalah, as well as retail outlets and two speciality restaurants.

Shaza's CEO, Simon Coombs said ''We are proud to announce the signing of Shaza Salalah, and bringing Shaza's vision to the Sultanate of Oman. Shaza Salalah will be a resort that is married with nature and will be a window for the world to experience the best of Salalah.''
