Oman's first outlet mall and largest retailtainment destination – Al Araimi Walk in Barka - is set to open in September 2020, Al Raid Group has announced.

The 240,000 sq m development project will feature 164 retail outlets, 42 food and beverage outlets, seven entertainment hubs, a hypermarket, and IMAX cinema.

It will also include an indoor waterpark, trampoline park, snow village, ice-skating rink, virtual reality zone, and cliff climbing adventure facility, the company said in a statement.

Construction on Al Araimi Walk is scheduled to begin this month and the property will open its doors by September 2020, it added.

Raid Abdullah Al Araimi, vice chairman, Al Raid Group said: “Having a sprawling tree-lined promenade, a high-tech digital park, gourmet restaurants, world-class designer brands and a lot more; each and every aspect of Al Araimi Walk will exemplify and reflect the essence of refined taste, and the innovative spirit of the Al Raid Group.”

He added: “Through the launch of Al Araimi Walk it is our endeavour to become the nation’s number one destination for families, tourists and shoppers.”

Last month, Al Raid Group said its Al Araimi Boulevard project is set to open later this year. The mall in Seeb is "well underway" and will be completed in time for a September opening.

With 70,500 sq m of space to be leased out, Al Araimi Boulevard will accommodate the "finest collection of labels from around the world".
