Rotana has announced two properties in Oman through signing an agreement with Sundus Investments Project, a mixed-use development company in the Middle East. The two properties will collectively span approximately 40,000 sq meters and contribute to driving Oman Vision 2020’s Drive for tourism in the country.
Mohammed Mahfood Saad Al Ardhi, Chairman, Sundus Investments Projects, said, “Rotana is the ideal partner to realize our aspirations for the hospitality landscape in Oman. With their experience in hotel management, we are confident of achieving our project goals that will serve to inspire more investors in Muscat to foray into the tourism and hospitality sectors.”
Scheduled to be completed in two years’ time, ground breaking for the US$ 40 million projects will commence in July 2013. Rotana will manage Sundus Arjaan by Rotana and Sundus Rotana Muscat- a corporate and conference hotel that is taking shape at Airport Heights in Bousher.
Selim El Zyr, President and CEO, Rotana, said, “Oman has always been a targeted market for our group as it has all the essential components to emerge as a leading tourism destination in the region. Sundus Investments’ projects complement our expansion plans and offer us an opportunity to consolidate our status in the market with two of our top brands.”
Speaking about India as a feeder market, Aman Aditya Sachdev, Senior Vice President- India, Rotana added, “The Indian market has consistently been a key source market for Rotana’s Middle East and Africa portfolio and is also currently the largest inbound source market for Oman. We are positive that our upcoming properties in Oman shall witness a great response from Indian outbound travellers.”
