The Malkai residential property in Barka, Oman, designed to be an exclusive community, was launched by Al Maeen Real Estate Services earlier this year. Scheduled to open by the end of the year 2010, it will comprise a Country Club and Residences. The development will comprise 101 four bedroom villas for sale, 92 two bedroom suites, as well as a boutique hotel offering 41 luxury suites. Each property will be landscaped and feature large swimming pools.
Exclusive advantages to owners and guests include an executive nine hole golf course designed by Gary Player Design, and a fully serviced spa enclosed in a walled water garden. Facilities will include the main clubhouse, two restaurants, a boutique, delicatessen, a junior club and tennis courts.
The property will also offer its own beach club for the exclusive use of residents and guests.
The project, while contemporary, maintains a balance of Omani architecture and tradition. The extensive use of walls, screens, shadows and light throughout the design refers to an Arabian and Islamic architectural past.
International Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants, Cluttons LLP, will manage sales. International Golf & Leisure Services will be the golf operator.
“We look forward to placing The Al Malkai golf course as one of the top positioned golf facilities, both locally and internationally through our expertise over the past 20 years in the management of golf courses and clubs in the region,” said Julian Danby, general manager of IGLS.
