The expansion of the resort encompasses a third, temperature controlled swimming pool, Jacuzzi and pool café, private beach, all-day Italian restaurant with a capacity to seat 270 and Salalah’s very first private, 250-seat outdoor amphitheatre.
“Salalah is fast becoming a year-round destination of choice and gaining popularity in new markets, especially the Italian market,” said Salalah Rotana Resort’s General Manager, Claudio Melli. “We are expanding our hospitality offering to meet the needs of every traveller and their demand for high-quality accommodation as the tourism industry continues to grow here. We want our presence in Salalah to help drive this growth and put Oman on the world tourism map, and we have positioned ourselves as a landmark in setting the tone and standards of hospitality in the country,” he added.
He further added, “With the airport expansion and a number of airlines planning routes to Salalah, international arrivals are forecast to rise to 80,000 in the coming year. Our facilities have been designed to complement Salalah’s developmental plans and we, along with the city, are gearing towards receiving this influx of tourists and offering them our promise of treasured time with a five-star experience that is synonymous with the Rotana brand.”
