On the north-eastern coast of Oman, 120 km away from Muscat, a prepossessing village emerges to the sea. Dhabab village contains 5 hamlets (small villages); Al Deera, Al Ruwaidha, Al Hujra, Al Ghubra, and Seih Al Nahd. The village is known for its beautiful beach that has the same name as the village; Dhabab Beach. The beach is considered a favorite out-of-town spot for many people.
Dhabab is considered an old settlement which can be proved by its aged structures such as forts and towers including Dhabab and Booma towers.
The village is one of the tourists’ attractions for what it offers. One of the main attractions of the village is Hawiyyat Najm or Bimmah Sinkhole; “a park which is one of the important tourist destinations in the Sultanate, dating back to hundreds of years.”
To add to its attractions, the first high-standard resort is being constructed in Dhabab beach. This resort is believed to be a stylish 5-star boutique beach resort and an ideal touristic destination. Dhabab Resort will have 24 luxury rooms with direct access to the beach, 47 Sea and Pool View Rooms, 21 Mountain View Rooms, 2 Swimming pools, a squash court, 2 Restaurants with a capacity of 120 guests each, and a rooftop coffee shop, A multipurpose hall with a capacity of 120 guests and smaller conference room, Gift shops, beauty salons, a clinic and prayer halls, and a spa and recreational center with gym, jacuzzi, steam rooms, saunas, and massage rooms.
The resort is over 60% completed but to be in line with governmental directives and to comply with supreme committee precautionary measures, Dhabab Resort management decided to hold all site work until further notice.
