Rotana marks milestone with open­ing of its first Mus­cat prop­erty Sun­dus Rotana

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Rotana, one of the lead­ing hospi­tal­ity man­age­ment com­pa­nies in the Mid­dle East, Africa and Turkey, is con­tin­u­ing its am­bi­tious ex­pan­sion plans with the open­ing of Sun­dus Rotana Mus­cat, the group’s first prop­erty in Oman’s vi­brant cap­i­tal. With the lat­est an­nual re­port by the Min­istry of Tourism show­ing a 16 per cent in­crease in tourist ar­rivals to Oman, the new ho­tel will help drive the sul­tanate’s rep­u­ta­tion as a world-class busi­ness and leisure tourism des­ti­na­tion.

Min­utes away from Mus­cat In­ter­na­tional Air­port, Sun­dus Rotana Mus­cat prom­ises its guests and visi­tors un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ences start­ing from its 215 spa­cious rooms and suites, Body­lines Fit­ness and Well­ness Club to its state-of-the-art meet­ing fa­cil­i­ties and mod­ern ball­room which can ac­com­mo­date up to 300 peo­ple. The ho­tel is also home to three sig­na­ture restau­rants set to add a new ‘flavour’ to Mus­cat’s din­ing scene.

Chris­tian Bau­dat, area gen­eral man­ager for Rotana Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Oman, said, “Our en­try into Mus­cat brings the Rotana brand’s highly per­son­alised and mod­ern ser­vice to the sul­tanate’s flour­ish­ing cap­i­tal for the first time. Visi­tors of ev­ery seg­ment can look for­ward to a world-class and one-of-a-kind ex­pe­ri­ence that brings to life Oman’s leg­endary his­tory of au- then­tic hospi­tal­ity.”

The open­ing of Rotana’s first ho­tel in Mus­cat is also set to of­fer SMEs and tal­ented Omani youths an op­por­tu­nity to en­ter the hospi­tal­ity in­dus­try. Sun­dus Rotana has al­ready cre­ated over 200 jobs through­out its con­struc­tion and first phase of op­er­a­tion, with plans al­ready un­der­way to in­crease its Oman­i­sa­tion rate be­yond its cur­rent 35 per cent.

Bau­dat added, “In ev­ery mar­ket we op­er­ate, we have earned a rep­u­ta­tion for nur­tur­ing lo­cal youth and the sul­tanate will be no dif­fer­ent. We be­lieve that Oman’s am­bi­tious goal of at­tract­ing five mil­lion tourists a year by 2040 can and will be achieved by open­ing up gate­ways of op­por­tu­ni­ties for tal­ented Oma­nis to en­ter the tourism sec­tor. As a di­rect re­sult, Sun­dus Rotana will be rolling out a num­ber of pro­grammes to har­ness the full po­ten­tial of our fu­ture in­dus­try lead­ers and sharpen the skillsets of our staff.”
