Muscat to get its own waterpark

While there’s no limit to the amount of fun you can having swimming in the beautiful waters off Muscat, sometimes you just want the thrill of some slides and man-made waves.

Last year, Oman’s first waterpark – Hawana Aqua Park – opened in Salalah, but now residents of the capital city can look forward to their own aquatic centre.

BBH Real Estate Development Group has announced plans to open the new attraction in the Al Bustan area of the city.

The newly-revealed project will form part of a number of developments across the Sultanate totalling 54,000 sq m.

These include a three-star hotel on Al-Ashkharah beach with 100 chalets, and a new traditional market in Seeb with 1,000 shops and a multi-stage theatre.

Overall, the BBH Group plan to spend OMR39 million on the upcoming projects.

Speaking of the waterpark on its website, the company explained that they hoped it would make the city the next destination for ‘young families and visitors’, and increase tourism in the future.

BBH Group did not reveal any timeline for when the projects would be completed, or the exact size of the park.

It is set to include outdoor swimming pools and will occupy a spot in front of the sea.
