Salalah Rotana Resort has been named ‘Oman’s Leading Beach Resort 2015’ at the Middle East edition of the 22nd Annual World Travel Awards, dubbed ‘The Oscars of the Travel Industry’ by The Wall Street Journal.
The WTA recognized Salalah Rotana Resort among five of the country’s leading names in hospitality for setting industry benchmarks in Oman.
“Earning the recognition of our peers in the industry to win this title demonstrates how far the resort has come since opening only a year ago,” said Hossam Kamal, General Manager of Salalah Rotana Resort.
“Oman and equally the Governorate of Dhofar are emerging as destinations of choice in the Middle East for tourists the world over, and we are proud to be a landmark in setting the tone of hospitality. We have always and will continue to work with the Governorate that is preparing to receive an influx in international tourists by meeting the demands for high-quality accommodation and expanding our resort offering to better cater to our guests,” he added
Serving the ever-growing market, Salalah Rotana Resort is the Sultanate’s largest free-standing, five-star beachfront hotel with 400 rooms and suites positioned along an elaborate network of Venetian waterways which connect the property to the Indian Ocean. Throughout its opening year, the resort enjoyed high occupancy, welcoming over 200,000 visitors, a number expected to rise this year, especially during the popular Khareef season.
With a promise of treasured time, Salalah Rotana Resort’s hospitality offering is all encompassing and caters to every type of traveller, be it leisure or business.
