(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Dar el Ezz, Nizwa's first fine dining outlet opened on Thursday. The facility has been designed to cater to stop-over tourists who pass through the historic city en route to several tourism hot spots in and around Dakhliyah governorate.

At the opening ceremony which was attended by several dignitaries from Muscat and Nizwa, Salim bin Ali bin Nasser al Siyabi, chairman, Falcon for Tourism Investment (FTI), which owns Dar el Ezz, welcomed guests and said that the new facility takes fine dining to a whole new level of taste and refinement. ''As a pre-eminent player in the hospitality industry, we share a long and successful relationship with Oman in providing exquisite facilities that echo the warm hospitality and captivating culture of its people. And the Dar el Ezz F&B complex is one such example,'' he said.

A joint initiative by FTI and the Ministry of Tourism, the RO2mn facility is spread over 3,690sq m and boasts of an international fine dining restaurant Memories', an open air coffee shop Clouds' serving Lebanese and Mediterranean cuisine and a multi-purpose banquet hall, Shahrayar'.

The complex incorporates fort-like design to reflect Nizwa's rich history. With a capacity of over 200 customers, Memories sports a design reminiscent of Nizwa's panoramic desert landscape and boasts of an outdoor terrace that is surrounded by waterfalls and rock structures. Shahrayar can accommodate more than 600 customers and is equipped to host a variety of events. ''We are launching today [May 15], and we already have bookings for 12 days in this month, which shows the scope and attraction of the banquet hall,'' said P Dayaparan, general manager, FTI.

Ibrahim bin Salim al Siyabi, vice chairman, FTI, said that Nizwa is one of the country's historic wilayats and deserves more such projects.

To create an authentic international culinary experience, FTI has hired over 60 experienced international staff from 20 countries. ''We have attracted talents from all over the world, bringing a wealth of diversified experience and speaking a total of seven languages in addition to Arabic. The project foresees employment of about 45 Omanis, and they are being trained at the Oman Tourism College,'' said Siyabi.

He added that in the second phase, Dar el Ezz will build a hotel for which discussions are on with concerned authorities. ''The conceptual design has been completed but we are awaiting further feasibility studies to identify the nature and size of the hotel. We are also looking for land extension so that we can have a property with around 200 rooms.''
