St Regis is to open its first luxury hotel and resort destination in Oman at Al Mouj Muscat.

Currently under construction, the St Regis Al Mouj Muscat Resort and branded residences will feature more than 340 rooms, suites and residences.

“We are very excited to be associated with such a renowned brand as The St. Regis, and proud that Marriott International has chosen Al Mouj Muscat as the very first location for this prestigious name in Oman,” said Nasser bin Masoud Al Sheibani, CEO of Al Mouj Muscat, a partnership between the Government of the Sultanate of Oman and Majid Al Futtaim Properties.

The St Regis will boast a range of wellbeing experiences, as well as corporate amenities and facilities, including a host of dining outlets, a VIP lounge, business centre, deluxe wellness centre and spa and a modern health club.

“The signing of St. Regis in Oman is a natural progression for the brand’s portfolio, as the brand continues to become one of the most recognised and sought-after luxury hotel brands in the region,” said Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International.

The St Regis Al Mouj Muscat Resort and branded residences will mark an important strategic addition to Al Mouj Muscat’s offerings as an integrated tourism complex (ITC), while also supporting the ongoing development of tourism in Oman.

Oman’s 2040 Tourism Strategy is planning over 20 billion Omani Riyals ($52bn) of investments into its tourism sector, welcoming 11.7 million international and domestic tourists into the Sultanate by that year.

Located along 6km of coastline, Al Mouj Muscat currently has more than 8,000 residents from 80 nationalities, with over 2,200 homes complete and handed over. The PGA-standard Al Mouj Golf is open, as is Al Mouj Marina for sailing and watersports.

There are more than 70 retail and dining outlets, two hotels open and a third close to completion, with The St. Regis to be the fourth.

Parks, play areas, walking and cycling paths, tennis courts, community swimming pools and a natural beach complete the community’s appeal.
