Al Nakheel is a mixed use Integrated Tourism Complex (ITC) to be developed on Abu Nakheel coast in Al Rumais, Barka, Sultante of Oman. The project is 20 minute-drive from Muscat International Airport, with direct access to the regional arterial road network. The project covers 500,000 m2 of leasehold land, with 833 meters of waterfront overlooking the Sea of Oman. The project features a variety of mixed use developments centred on a man-made lagoon with Crystal Lagoons® technology, including international hotels, villas, townhouses, apartments, serviced apartments, a lagoon promenade & a traditional mixed use souk, a shopping mall, an aqua park and a school. The project is planned to be developed in three phases with a total duration of nine years.
The project site lies in Willayat of Barka within Abu Al Nakheel region, approximately 30 minutes from the Muscat International Airport and has good infrastructure links with the Capital Area Muscat and onward to the border territory of UAE.
The subject property is located approximately 4.2 kilometres from the Al Naseem roundabout and directly adjoining the sea to the northern boundary. The property is considered to be a prime location, which is suitable for tourism and / or commercial / residential development.
The planned new railway link (GCC coverage), enlargement of Muscat International Airport and general infrastructural improvements linking Barka to the central Muscat areas should contribute greatly to the emergence of Barka as an important and vibrant growth area.
