Fairmont Hotels plans to manage Fairmont The Wave, Muscat. A luxury resort planned in three to four years, the property will be located on the coast of the Gulf of Oman.
The resort will be a mixed-use beachfront property located within Oman’s leading tourism and residential development, allowing guests and visitors access to an extensive coastline and gardens. Adjoining a Greg Norman-designed, 18-hole championship golf course, Fairmont The Wave will feature more than 300 guestrooms and suites, gourmet restaurants, meeting and leisure facilities, a Willow Stream Spa and Fairmont-branded residences and Fairmont Heritage Place.
This is the most recent project planned by Fairmont for the Middle East and Africa and joins other announced properties, including Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club.
