AL RIYAH HOTEL
This project is envisioned as a meeting point for different
cultural and leisure circuits, with the goal of using the same space for daytime
and nocturnal activities in a sustainable fashion that impacts its surrounding.
The idea was for it to become an intended destination for visitors, residents and
tourists in all of Sultanate of Oman.
The project proposes an “oasis” surrounded by a ring-shaped
building. The later includes many functions, from hospitality to leisure,
distributed in a luxurious way, overviewing the tropical landscape that
enhances the feeling of “the sweet escape”. In addition, the movement of the
wind in the area that naturally creates a dune in the Sahara, inspired the
“RIYAH” concept giving the building its shape and its enclosed courtyard that
limits these winds.
Deluxe villas are scattered amongst the landscape, fashioned
in a way not to disrupt this “jungle”. This disposition gives each villa its
own ambiance allowing visitors to each experience his own adventure based on
his taste. Finally, the visitors of Riyah Beach Resort benefit from a list of
amenities – spa, gym, restaurants, events venue, in addition to the different
activities located all over the project giving them the whole experience of
healing and resting.
