S&T Interiors and Contracting a key partner to the project as a JV partner with ALEC. The impressive Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar, Oman, is a 115 key, five star luxury resort recently delivered by S&T Interiors and Contracting. One of S&T’s most comprehensive interior fit out and construction works projects, Anantara is an iconic five star resort in the Middle East build in the mountains. Its location, climate and facilities make it one of the most unique. Located on a cliff, it has 33 swimming pools, 22 gated villas with swimming pools, and speciality Italian, Persian and Omani restaurants. It’s in the coolest region in Oman where temperatures reach only four degrees in winter. S&T Interiors and Contracting is privileged to have been a key partner to the project with a joint venture with UAE-headquartered Al Jaber Engineering & Contracting (ALEC), to deliver turnkey construction and high-end joinery and gypsum works for the resort. The project was successfully handed over in August 2016. The high-end joinery and gypsum works package for this exquisite resort and spa covered all areas including the presidential suite, villas, lounge, library, main building, restaurants, pool bar, pool terrace and back offices. The project had its share of challenges, including managing logistics for materials, transportation, negotiating the terrain, working in the cold and dry weather, the scarcity of potable water and altitude sickness, to name but a few! Despite the challenges, this impressive project was a great success owing to the collaborative efforts of an experienced team and the JV partnership.
