Oman to get $1 Billion tourist port

Mina Sultan Qaboos Waterfront will include hotels, residences and leisure facilities

Dubai’s Damac International has been chosen by the Government of Oman to develop its Port Sultan Qaboos into a $1 billion mixed-use destination through a joint venture with Omran, the government’s investment, growth and development arm.

‘Mina Sultan Qaboos Waterfront’ is set to be redeveloped into an integrated tourist port and lifestyle destination that includes hotels, residences, as well as a dining, retail and leisure offering.

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Hussain Sajwani, Chairman of Damac Properties, and Dr. Ali bin Masoud Al Sunaidy, Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Council for Planning, Minister of Commerce & Industry and Chairman of Omran.

“This historic agreement reflects the vision of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said to transform Oman into a world-class tourism and investment destination,” said Sajwani.

Al Sunaidy said: “Mina Sultan Qaboos Waterfront is based in the 200 year-old historical centre of commerce in Muscat and is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Oman. The redevelopment of the port by Omran will build renewed interest and focus to the area, while creating a strong investment proposition for the tourism, real estate and leisure industries.”
