Barr Al Jissah, one of Oman’s first ITC developments, is delighted to unveil impressive results for its recent release of luxurious cliff-top villas.

Widely lauded as one of Oman’s best residential developments, the latest release of luxury cliff-top villas last year almost completely sold out-attracting premium prices for the market sector- with only one villa remaining.  There has been strong demand from the local luxury market and GCC regional based buyers, with keen interest for the remaining villa, and additional homes soon to be released, from other markets including the UK and Europe.

Recent sales figures have defied regional trends, pointing to the clear appetite for the high-quality residential property and integrated lifestyle experiences on offer at Barr Al Jissah.  The demand for these homes has exceeded expectations with buyers attracted by not only the high quality residential offering, but also the world class services available made possible through exclusive partnerships with the likes of Quintessentially to offer concierge services; as well as private banking through Oman Arab Bank and luxury amenities from resort provider Shangri-La. In addition, there are world-class marina facilities for yacht owners who want to access the destination.  As part of their home purchase, owners also receive a permanent family residents’ visa making travelling in and out of Oman efficient and effortless.

Commenting on the recent sales success, Firas Matraji, CEO of Barr Al Jissah Resort Company said: I am delighted with our recent sales figures. Even in spite of the wider economic turbulence, our homes are still in high demand. We offer a great quality lifestyle, in an unrivalled location, for both domestic and international buyers to own a home. With our additional lifestyle experiences we offer more than just a home and this has resonated with our homeowners.”

The sale of the cliff-top villas marks the first phase of the sales programme with additional residential offerings planned, including Bannenberg & Rowell Limited Edition Townhomes and marina apartments.

With only one luxury cliff-top villa remaining, for private viewings tailored to each potential buyer’s specific needs, contact the presentation centre on +968 2477 6844 or visit the website www.barraljissah.com.

Barr Al Jissah, the exceptional luxury destination in Oman, is delighted to announce the launch of the world’s first Bannenberg & Rowell Limited Edition Townhomes, due for completion in Autumn 2016.

The internationally acclaimed designers Bannenberg & Rowell are one the most famous names in yacht design and are responsible for some of the world’s most iconic superyacht interiors.  Bringing ‘yacht living’ to Barr Al Jissah, Bannenberg & Rowell have drawn on their extensive experience in contemporary yacht design, taking inspiration from the spectacular ocean setting and Omani architecture, to create the cutting-edge interiors for  the nine Limited Edition Townhomes.

Elevated above Barr Al Jissah, the four bedroom, five bathroom Townhomes offer uninterrupted views across the Gulf of Oman. Featuring details more typically associated with superyachts, the homes aim to bring the stunning natural surroundings inside whilst evoking a sense of place and Omani authenticity.  Bannenberg & Rowell have utilised elements of stone, marble, teak and bronze combined with rich, intense blue hues; while the dramatic entrance- expertly created by dedicated craftsmen using locally sourced stone – and panoramic windows  instantly draw the eye to the teak outdoor decking and stunning horizon beyond.

Commenting on the project, Dickie Bannenberg said, “Oman’s stunning coastline and deep sense of heritage has always appealed. When we first visited Barr Al Jissah in June last year, we were immediately struck by the beauty of the destination and its deep-rooted connection to the ocean. Despite being close to Muscat, you get a real sense of space and seclusion that is attractive to a discerning yachting audience. For the Townhomes, we wanted to put our Bannenberg & Rowell touch on the interiors referencing our yacht design heritage whilst at the same time that of the region.”

The Bannenberg & Rowell Limited Edition Townhomes are perfectly complemented by private marina facilities, offering the perfect base from which to discover Oman’s 1,700km pristine coastline. An upcoming members-only beach club and boardwalk with al fresco dining and marina-side retailing will further enhance this exclusive offering – providing homeowners with unrivalled access to a vibrant Riviera lifestyle at Barr Al Jissah.

All residents benefit from lifestyle amenities provided by the Shangri-La managed hotels located within the destination, as well as enjoy luxury concierge services from Quintessentially Lifestyle and Bentley transportation. Homeowners also qualify for a family resident’s visa and can take advantage of preferential rates and priority banking services from Oman Arab Bank.

Firas Matraji, CEO of Barr Al Jissah commented, “We are delighted to be working with Bannenberg & Rowell for this project. Here at Barr Al Jissah, we are committed to going above and beyond to offer truly outstanding products for our buyers, and our collaboration with Bannenberg & Rowell allows us to bring a world-first to the destination by creating the very essence of ‘yacht living’ for our residents. We pride ourselves on remaining true to our historical heritage and geographical location, and this partnership allows us to do this while at the same time delivering a truly unique product.”

The Bannenberg & Rowell Limited Edition Townhomes will bring a new standard of luxury yacht living to Barr Al Jissah. To register your interest please visit www.barraljissah.com
