Crystal Lagoons begins construction of its first lagoon in Oman

24 June, 2022 / News

Oman is one of the newest markets in the Middle East that Crystal Lagoons entered. The first lagoon of the multinational innovation company in the country has already begun its construction.

It will be 12.6 acres of turquoise waters that will be the centerpiece of the Al Nakheel ITC project, in association with Alargan Towell Investment Company. Around the lagoon there will be three hotels, 1,436 residential apartments, villas and houses, a commercial sector and a series of other facilities.

The expansion of Crystal Lagoons towards Oman is to take advantage of the Oman’s burgeoning hospitality and tourism market and the efforts made by the sultanate of Oman to boost sustainable tourism with new infrastructure projects with eco-friendly amenities such as crystalline lagoons.

The Al Nakheel ITC project will be located in Wilayat of Barka and will enhance the city as a major tourist hub, a destination that already attracts large numbers of tourists from the capital, Muscat.

Alastair Sinclair, Regional Director, Middle East, Crystal Lagoons, said: “Developing Oman’s tourism industry is a top priority for the government, investment is likely to see a number of recognized hospitality brands coming into the market. As investment in the country grows, as does competition. We can provide a viable, long term differentiator that offers something unique to other developments, we ultimately deliver the wow factor!”

Oman is renowned for having some of the cleanest waters in the world, as stated by a recent United Nations report. Crystal Lagoons technology® provides a viable, sustainable solution, despite challenges such as water and energy supply, supporting Oman’s drive for clean water preservations through avoidance of contamination. Crystal Lagoons uses any kind of water including brackish from underground aquifers, eliminating the need to consume valuable fresh water resources.

The cutting-edge technology uses up to 30 times less water than a golf course and half of the water required to irrigate a park of the same size. A manmade lagoon also uses 100 times less chemicals than a traditional filtration system and just 2% of the energy required by conventional water treatment systems for swimming pools and drinking water.
