Muscat Hills   Beach Resort

Formerly known as Oman Dive Centre, Muscat Hills Resort underwent in 2016 its full renovation involving the beachfront bar and restaurant, as well as the swimming pool, reception area, dive centre facilities and the 35 Barasti beachfront huts.

Dutch designers Patrice Aaftink & Jean Marc des Bouvrie merged the clean and crisp white Mediterranean décor with the glamorous
nostalgia of Middle Eastern design.

Patrice and Jean Marc always try to reinvent themselves with new ideas along with their clients. And the goal is to inspire the owner with their ideas and plans. Muscat Hills Beach Club is a deeply extension of their wild imagination and smart ideas. Bright, bold, contemporary seem the right expression for the entire project.
