Muscat, November 15, 2015: Strengthening its position as the leading developer of Oman’s newest premier lifestyle destination, Saraya Bandar Jissah emerged one of the most prominent winners from the Sultanate, at the 2015 edition of the International Property Awards. Organised recently at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Dubai, the annual event saw Saraya Bandar Jissah add four more awards at the local category and two regional to its array of recognitions. Furthermore, it was announced that the project was nominated in the ‘Development Marketing’ and ‘New Hotel Design and Construction’ categories at the London edition of the International Property Awards 2015 to be held in December.
Poised to be one of the most spectacular development sites under construction in Oman, Saraya Bandar Jissah won four major awards in the following categories – Residential Development, Mixed – Use Development, Development Marketing and New Hotel Construction and Design.
These awards further cemented Saraya Bandar Jissah’s abilities and pledge to deliver a one-of-a-kind luxury development with two 5 star beachfront hotels, a boutique hotel and resort hotel to be operated by world-class operators – Jumeirah Group, five residential zones, and a state of the art recreational facility, staff accommodation and technical zone.
Sheikh Hamood bin Sultan al Hosni, CEO of Saraya Bandar Jissah remarked, “On behalf of the entire team at Saraya Bandar Jissah, it is our pleasure to receive these prestigious accolades. These wins not only highlight the world-class quality of the project, but also are testament to the rapid progress in construction and the understanding of customers across the region, that Saraya Bandar Jissah is like no other development in the country or region. While the success in sales of the properties on Zaha, Nameer Island, and Wajd residences are proof that buyers are understanding the Saraya Bandar Jissah value proposition, it is very encouraging to be recognised and awarded for the same.”
A host of Arabia’s finest developers, architects, interior designers and real estate agents gathered for the glittering awards ceremony held at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Dubai.
Entries were received from companies in 12 countries across Arabia and winning entrants were presented with either a ‘Highly Commended’ or ‘5-Star’ award. The 5-star winners were then re-judged to select just one from each of the 50 different categories to go forward to represent the Arabia in the 2015-2016 International Property Awards. Among the competitors, Saraya Bandar Jissah went ahead and bagged the coveted awards.
Commenting on the wins, Lee O’Donoghue VP Marketing & Sales of Saraya Bandar Jissah said, “We are honoured to receive four major awards in the Oman and regional categories. The Saraya Bandar Jissah project quintessentially reflects the Sultanate; the nation’s natural beauty, economic stability and dedication to sustainability have made it possible for us to bring this global vision to fruition. We take great pride in this achievement as Saraya Bandar Jissah places the Sultanate of Oman’s drive to promote tourism development firmly on the international stage.”
Saraya Bandar Jissah, which is being developed in partnership between Omran and Saraya Oman, is located on the outskirts of Muscat on a secluded beach surrounded by the Hajar Mountains. The destination is being built on 2.2mn sq.m of land with an expansive beachfront and a high point of 250m above sea level. Saraya Bandar Jissah will be home to 398 exclusive residential units, spacious hilltop villas, stylish duplexes and luxury apartments – all with attractive waterfront and mountainside views. Scheduled for a grand opening in 2017, the two hotels form the major leisure components of Saraya Bandar Jissah, providing their guests with a luxurious and relaxing home away from the day-to-day rigours of life
