ECO HOTEL, Al JABAL ALAKHDAR
Located 150 km from Muscat, Al Jabal Al Akhdar (The Green Mountain) is part of the Al Hajar Mountain range that extends about ten thousand feet above sea level. Al Jabal Al Akhdar is undoubtedly one of the highest points in the Sultanate of Oman, making it a hot-spot for the adventurous tourist and the escapist. The proposed Eco Hotel rests on the tip of a dramatic cliff, taking full advantage of the remarkable North Easterly views. The opportunity to follow the trend of similar eco-hotel projects worldwide is put forward to create an exciting, appropriate, culturally & environmentally sensitive resort that caters for both the tourist and the community. Structures are designed to be in-keeping with the traditional architectural language of the region. The greater ambition of the finished product is to create a sense of intimacy and privacy prevalent in the mountain villages dotted in the landscape.
