This is a part of a mixed-use development project in Oman under the management of Alargan Towell Investment Company. Once built, it would be the centerpiece of three hotels along with serviced apartments, a mixed-use bazaar and other facilities.

 
Of late, crystal Lagoons has signed a contract with the Beach Company of Palm to develop a five-hectare lagoon that would be a centrepiece for the Al Nakheel Integrated Tourism Complex (ITC) in the Wilayat of Barka. Construction of the lagoon is about to start in Q1 2018.

 
To quote Carlos Salas, regional director, Middle East of Crystal Lagoons, “Developing Oman’s tourism industry is a top priority for the government, investment is likely to see a number of recognised hospitality brands coming into the market. At Crystal Lagoons our technology allows us to develop mass bodies of water that are not only highly sustainable but also offer incredible turquoise water ideal for a range of water sports in a safe environment, perfect for large resorts and residential developments.”

 
The technology makes use of 30 times less water than a golf course and half of the water needed to dampen a park of equal size. Also, a manmade lagoon utilizes 100 times less chemicals than a conventional filtration system and 2% of the energy necessary by conventional water treatment systems in terms of swimming pools and drinking water.

 
Besides growth in the Middle East, Crystal Lagoons has lately divulged plans to a new business model that will see the company introduce Public Access Lagoons (PALs) around the world.
