Rotana celebrates opening of first Oman property

Rotana, considered the World’s Leading Business Hotel Brand by the prestigious World Travel Awards, is continuing its ambitious expansion plans with the opening of the group’s first property in Oman, Salalah Rotana Resort.

The stunning property is the 50th hotel to be operated by Rotana and represents the half-way mark in the award-winning hospitality group’s plans for 100 hotels by 2020.

The highly anticipated property has opened its doors on the breathtaking coastline of Salalah – the emerging resort destination in the unspoilt landscape of Oman.

Set against a beautiful backdrop of lush vegetation, rolling mountains, golden sands and crystal blue waters, Salalah Rotana Resort offers a relaxed beach atmosphere, intimate ambiance and unrivalled five-star Arabian hospitality. 

With glorious sunshine found all year round in Salalah, guests can escape the hustle and bustle of day to day life to experience Rotana’s oasis of style, sublime comfort and natural beauty in one of 2014’s must visit destinations.

Located on the white sands of Salalah’s beachfront with spectacular views overlooking the azure Arabian Ocean, the Salalah Rotana Resort is a luxurious five-star property complete with 400 rooms and suites, each furnished with modern amenities and conveniences for guests who want to experience a true luxury getaway.

An idyllic retreat for those in search of comfort and convenience, the resort’s state-of-the-art leisure facilities include a stunning swimming pool, four dining outlets, a health and fitness centre and kid’s club to keep the little ones amused; all located in the heart of the resort.

Guests can rest, relax and rejuvenate at the resort’s Zen spa; Rotana’s home-grown spa concept derived from ancient holistic Asian philosophies.

A calming space where stress melts away, Zen the spa at Rotana promises to provide each guest the opportunity to ‘rebalance the body’ with a wide variety of relaxing ‘ritual’ treatments from full body massages, facials and soothing wraps. 

Alternatively, for the more sporty types, the resort offers first-class diving opportunities to experience the magical marine life and stunning seascape.

Additional watersports activities, including jet skiing, kayaking and sailing, are also available for all to enjoy. 

Located within the grounds of the resort are two full-sized tennis courts for those who wish to enjoy their favourite sport in the sunny climes of Salalah.

Omer Kaddouri, chief executive, Rotana, said: “Oman has always been a key growth market for us to expand into.

“We pride ourselves in identifying new and upcoming travel destinations people wish to visit and Salalah is growing in popularity.

“The opening of Salalah Rotana Resort is an exciting one for us, as not only does it take us one step closer to reaching our ultimate vision but it has strengthened the company’s standing as a luxury hospitality provider.”

The opening of the Salalah Rotana Resort increases Rotana’s inventory to 13,458 rooms and suites which comes as a reflection of the group’s commitment to being an international leading hospitality management provider.
