GAJ were appointed by OMRAN to develop a concept masterplan for a 1 million sqm plot of land in Ras Al Hadd.

The overriding concept was to provide a development that caters to both the local and international markets where people can come to relax but also to learn about the cultural, historical and natural resources. The development’s purpose is to inspire people to care about their cultural and natural environments. The site is divided into two zones, the first zone containing the Heritage Village, and the second zone containing the Ecotourism Resorts. The second zone was further subdivided into two activity zones that includes wildlife based activities and sea life based activities. Each zone has its own themed hotel, residential units and activities.

The masterplan offers the possibility to create a true hub of nature interpretation, conservation, and sustainable tourism, and can be themed by partnering with global brands to achieve a viable and internationally renowned development.
