HMH - Hospitality Management Holdings will control Corp Muscat Al Muzn Hotel under a newly signed agreement with Muzn Oman Commercial.
Corp Muscat Al Muzn, an upscale three-star hotel, is being promoted as a mixed-use destination for travelers offering several amenities including a mall and wellness center. The hotel is part of a larger company project that was marketed by MAJAN Development Company.
“The steady growth of tourism in Oman, with a vision to welcome 12 million visitors annually by 2020, is fueling demand for quality mid-market hotels catering to diverse segments and Corp Muscat Al Muzn Hotel is being developed to serve that growing need,” Muzn Oman Commercial Chairman Mohamed Al Kindi said. “The hotel has been conceived to be a comfortable and stylish address for business and leisure travelers to Muscat. We are pleased to work with a reputed operator like HMH - Hospitality Management Holdings on this exciting new development designed to complement Al Muzn Mall.”
Corp Muscat Al Muzn Hotel joins the growing list of noteworthy facilities in the Middle East and North Africa within the HMH hotels portfolio and reinforces the group's commitment to the destination of Oman.
“At HMH we wish to grow the path according to our strategic plan that is sustainable in a physical sense,” HMH - Hospitality Management Holdings CEO Laurent Voivenel said. “The GCC, with a special focus on the UAE, Oman and KSA, is central to our expansion strategy. The scale of opportunity in the region for hotels especially in the budget segment is unprecedented. By 2020 our aim to have six hotels in Oman while multiplying by four our total inventory of keys.”
“Oman is a key development market for HMH and we are very proud to debut the Corp brand in the country with Corp Muscat Al Muzn Hotel,” Laurent said. “The hospitality Industry in Oman is witnessing remarkable growth at the moment and we are truly grateful to Muzn Oman Commercial SAOC for having given us this opportunity at these exciting times. HMH is well-positioned in the country as one of the leading 'alcohol-free' hotel groups equipped with the most advanced technology and we are confident Corp Muscat Al Muzn Hotel will add tremendous value to our growing presence in Oman while further strengthening our international portfolio.”

The hotel is expected to welcome its first guests by the first quarter of 2018. The facility will offer 132 guestrooms and will supplement Al Muzn Mall, fitting the needs of business and leisure travelers with a number of service sand amenities specifically with those guests in mind.
