UK-listed Dar Global, the international arm of Saudi mega-developer Dar Al Arkan, and the Trump Organization have partnered with Omran Group (Oman’s state-run tourism-development arm) on a Trump-branded resort in Oman.

Valued at $500 million, this new hospitality project includes a Trump International hotel, hanging suites with private pools, furnished villas, and apartments serviced by the hotel. It features a 18-hole Championship golf course, a members-only club with exclusive amenities for networking and social events, and the Cliff Hanging Night Club, a first in the ME, offering an unrivalled setting for bespoke events and celebrations. Opening in December 2028, the 140-key, 5-star hotel complex is beachfront, offering guests complimentary private beach access. Other amenities include diverse dining options, banqueting and meeting facilities, and an expansive SPA.

The Trump International hotel is located in AIDA, a vibrant gated community of luxury seafront residences and golfing destination. It is nestled in a lush oasis of tranquility, located only 25 minutes from Muscat international airport. Additionally, it is in close proximity to 5-star landmark destinations including, the Ritz Carlton, The Shangri-La Resort, Nikki Beach, and The Jumeirah Hotels.

Reflecting Dar Global and Trump Organization’s commitment to excellence, this landmark establishment not only sets new standards in international hospitality but also advances Oman’s tourism vision, drawing in a broader audience while stimulating domestic tourism.”

For his part, Eric Trump, EVP, The Trump Organization, stated: “In collaboration with Dar Global, we proudly introduce Trump International Oman in AIDA, ushering in a new era of style, service, and exclusivity with the renowned Trump standard. This partnership reflects our shared dedication to crafting iconic luxury experiences for discerning travelers and investors, enhancing Oman’s prominence as a premier global destination.”

Oman is quickly becoming one of the most prominent commercial and cultural hubs in the region and is rapidly becoming a prime investment destination due to its attractive benefits.

Dar Global and the Trump Organization have also joined forces on another project, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia where a Trump Tower will be launched by 2028, blending modern luxury with the rich cultural heritage of the port city. While details on the Trump Tower Jeddah have not been made public, El Chaar said that the property will “leverage the strengths of both organizations to attract more international investors and vacationers.”

Dar Global has recently teamed up with Aston Martin to work on an beachfront residential project in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.
