GCC-based luxury ecolodge company ENVI Lodges has signed an agreement with Oman’s Ministry of Defence Pension Fund to develop a sustainable mountain lodge in Al Jabel Al Akhdar, 2,000 metres above sea level.
The ecolodge will provide a unique mountain stay experience while promoting environmental conservation in line with the Oman National Tourism Strategy 2040’s target of 11.7 million visitors and 80,000 hospitality keys focused on nature, adventure and sustainable initiatives.
Slated to open in 2025, ENVI Al Jabel Al Akhdar will feature 40 luxury expedition tents designed by Tenthouse Structure, a South African architect of tented wilderness developments.
Oman’s tourism sector is growing at pace, with visitor arrivals reaching 2.9 million in 2022, up 348% from 2021 figures, according to the National Centre for Statistics and Information.
