Alila Hinu Bay, our luxury resort project in Oman, has won the hotel category in 2021 Identity Magazine Awards. We are very proud of this achievement, and we hope that our designs continue being recognized on the international scale.
This unique 5-stars beach resort that stretches over 45 hectares of ecologically attractive site is located in Mirbat, Governorate of Dhofar. The resort allows for an unforgettable experience.
The Building design is a contemporary minimalist with a heavy influence of the Omani vernacular. Omani marble on the facade, falaj water features, Omani archway corridor in the reception building and local artwork are some of the many local influences that are evident within the building design. Landscape design is strategic, and a move from more “traditional” and higher water usage plants to native and adaptive plants. This brings a design aesthetic that responds to the local climate and culture, creating an experience and sense of place.
The interior focuses on a concept of discovery. Finishes are carefully selected to align and complement the unique landscape surrounding the site. A clean seamless microtopping is used through for wall and floor finishes and a mid-tone African teak was used for all fixed and loose joinery works.
