Construction set to begin on Sundus Rotana hotel
Rotana Hotels will operate the development upon completion.
Mohammed Mahfoodh Al Ardhi, chairman of Sundus Investments Projects LLC, and Said Al Shaksy, CEO of SES, signed the agreement.
The first phase of the project will consist of the construction of Sundus Rotana, a four-star business hotel that is set to open its doors in February 2017. The hotel will feature 215 guest rooms, including suites, a ballroom, six meeting rooms, executive lounge, boardroom and a fully equipped business center. Also included will be a state-of-the-art fitness center and swimming pool, an all-day dining cafe and Teatro, a fine-dining restaurant.
“Oman is currently witnessing a surge in tourism and increased demand for hospitality offerings, buoyed by the diversification of the national economy, in line with Oman’s Vision 2020," Al Ardhi said. "According to the World Travel & Tourism Council’s (WTTC) 2015 Travel & Tourism Economic Development Report, Oman is poised to register the highest growth in the tourism sector across the Middle East region, notching an 11 percent increase in the number of jobs in the country.”
