(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The much-awaited project involving construction of three Starwood Hotels and Resorts properties in the heart of Muscat has moved one step towards realisation with Omran floating the construction tender for the five-star W Hotel, which will be the first property to come up among the three.


The three hotels are part of redevelopment plan of the existing InterContinental Muscat which Omran, the government arm responsible for delivery and managing major tourism projects, had announced a couple of years back.


The tender for construction of W Hotel and site wide infrastructure', which closes on March 9, has so far elicited interest from close to 30 companies, some of them being Carillion Alawi, OHI Douglas, Galfar, Larsen & Toubro, Al Turki Enterprises, Al Khalili Group, Towell Construction and Teejan Trading & Contracting Co.


The scope of work includes all disciplines of structural, architectural, electro-mechanical, interior finishes, joinery, special finishes, speciality lighting, lifts, ICT systems, hard landscaping, soft landscaping, water features, swimming pool and car parking.


Abdul Wahid al Farsi, VP, exernal affairs, Omran, told Muscat Daily that the design for the hotel was completed in 2012. ''However, authorities had requested changes in the design.


''We had to redesign the external elevations completely. But in terms of the hotel's facilities and number of rooms, there are no changes made.''


He added that the hotel consists of 290 rooms in total, along with a speciality restaurant, all-day dining restaurant, infinity pool, spas for men and women. Other facilities include a fitness centre, pool rooms, retail facilities, swimming pool, outdoor tennis court, taxi parking, staff facilities and a total of 350 car park spaces.


Starwood Hotels' website mentions the launch date of W Hotel to be June, 2017. However, Farsi didn't specify a date. He said, ''The tender is still in the floatation stage and the construction period is 24 months from the date of award.''


According to the schedule, W Hotel will open while the InterContinental still operates.


It will later on make way for the other two hotels. The other two hotels part of the project include the 350-room Westin Muscat, and a 100-room extended-stay property, Element Musc
