A new seaside resort in Tiwi is all set to open its doors to visitors from March 1. Located 142km from Wadi Adai roundabout on the Quriyat-Sur highway, Wadi Shab resort is expected to give a big fillip to tourism in the region.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Dr Rashid al Ghailani, the owner of the resort, said, “This property is spread over 10,000sq m. I visited this place last year to buy land to build a guest house.
“Starting from a barren land, we conceptualised the idea of the resort with oriental style décor. Travel Point has signed a contract with us to manage reservations, sales and marketing activities of the property.”
He said that Tiwi is known for its natural beauty. “There is a sinkhole, Wadi Shab and other natural attractions, but not enough lodging facilities. It was a logistical challenge to build the resort from scratch. I hope this resort will become popular among tourists.”
The resort has 34 well-equipped rooms including 17 standard, 14 deluxe and three luxury rooms.
Sunil Prabhakar, CEO, Travel Point and Pradeep Naik, resort manager were also present on the occasion.
