Envi Al Sifah will feature 40 luxury sea-view tents and open in late 2025

Envi Lodges, a Dubai-based tented camps and eco-pods specialist, is planning to add a new property in Oman, located an hour’s drive from Muscat.

The new eco-retreat close to the shores of Al Sifah follows the announcement of a mountain ecolodge at Al Jabel Al Akhdar in the Hajar mountains.

Set to open in late 2025, Envi Al Sifah will feature 40 luxury sea-view tents created by Tenthouse Structures, the company said in a statement.

The ecolodge, owned by a consortium of Omani investors, will include common facilities such as a restaurant serving seafood and locally sourced cuisine, a wellness centre, a swimming pool and an activities centre. Outdoor spaces will be available for fireside theme nights, including an open-air beach cinema.

Envi Lodges in October said it was preparing a third round of fundraising to expand regionally and internationally.

The UAE ecolodge brand and management company, founded in 2021, has already completed two funding rounds, raising $2 million from investors in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, France and the UK.

Envi Lodges co-founder Noelle Homsy said the latest round would be complete by the end of January.

The global “glamping” (luxury camping) market is predicted to be worth $3.9 billion by 2027, with a 17.5 percent compound annual growth rate, according to KBV Research.

Envi, incorporated under the Abu Dhabi Global Market jurisdiction, currently has five projects underway.
