The project comprises five residential zones, named Wajd, Zaha, Nameer, Safa, and Naeem, which contain villas, duplexes, and individual apartments. 

Two five-star hotels, operated by Jumeirah, as well as an entertainment village, are also being developed within the ITC. 

State news agency, ONA, reported that Muscat Bay's first group of residents would move in "over the course of the upcoming weeks, alongside the opening the first Jumeirah Muscat Bay Resort hotel that comprises 206 rooms and a number of multi-purpose halls".

The report continued: "The first phase of the project, expected to be delivered this year, will consist of three plots comprising 260 different residences, a hotel, and an entertainment village called Parkland."

These details were revealed during a tour of the project site, which was conducted by Maitha bint Saif al-Mahrouqiya, undersecretary of the sultanate's Ministry of Tourism. 

Commenting on the project, al-Mahrouqiya said: "It is really exciting to see such a stunning project putting in its final touches as it prepares to welcome residents over the course of the upcoming weeks.

"We are delighted to see this happen at the same time the sultanate has been receiving positive feedback on latest statistics showing an increasing number of tourists visiting the country.

"I strongly believe that Muscat Bay, developed by the government in partnership with the private sector, represented by Omran and Saraya Oman Holding Company respectively, will be a key pillar in Oman’s tourism sector."
