Rotana Group signed a strategic agreement with Taameer Investment and Golden Group of Companies to build and manage five properties in Oman over the next five years. Rotana’s chairman, Nasser Al Nowais, says the Abu Dhabi-based company considers Oman as an important growth market for tourism.
The deal will bring approximately 1,500 hotel rooms to the cities of Muscat, Sohar and Salalah. The upcoming hotels aim to cater to an anticipated increase in demand, as Oman looks to expand its airports in Salalah and Muscat.
The agreement is said to be the largest of its kind for a hotel chain in the sultanate.
