Centara opens its first hotel in the Middle East
Centara Hotels & Resorts has continued to expand internationally with the recent opening of a 152-room hotel in Muscat.
The Centara Muscat Hotel is located in the Omani capital’s bustling Ghala Heights business district, close to the convention centre, Royal Opera House, and the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque.
It is conveniently midway between the airport and historical district, about 15 minutes from each.
The hotel is a modern building featuring three restaurants, a spa, and a rooftop pool and terrace with views out over the Gulf of Oman.
Its premium lounge, banquet and meeting facilities, complimentary Wi-Fi, plus proximity to Muscat’s shopping and historical sites, are designed to serve both business and leisure travellers.
CEO of Centara Hotels & Resorts, Thirayuth Chirathivat, said: “Introducing Thai hospitality culture for the first time to this historic crossroads between East and West is an exciting opportunity.
We believe a thoughtfully-designed, modern facility in this ideal location will be a welcome addition to Muscat, whether you are here on business or vacation.”
Centara is planning further expansion in the region, an opening in Doha, Qatar later this year and another in Deira Island in the UAE set for 2020.
