Executives from the Bangkok-based hospitality group Dusit International, led by Managing Director and CEO Mr. Chanin Donavanik, joined executives from the Al Jarwani Group to ink a management agreement on a new dusitD2 hotel in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.
The dusitD2 Palm Mall Muscat, scheduled for completion in 2017, will be located within the mixed-use Palm Mall development that will offer unique attractions including Oman’s first snow village and the Sultanate’s largest aquarium. The upscale hotel will offer approximately 150 guest rooms and 100 suites with an enticing culinary offering. Select rooms will offer stunning views of the mall’s aquarium and snow village. Leisure facilities will include a gym, spa and pool, while meeting rooms and a ballroom will cater for business guests and special events.
Despite being a desert country, Oman possesses a diverse geography, making it an excellent destination for adventure travelers keen to explore its rugged mountains, beautiful coastlines or awe inspiring sand dunes. Cultural tourism is also a major highlight in Oman which boasts multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as the ruins of the necropolis of Bat, dating back to 3,000 B.C.
“We are excited to add Oman to our list of international destinations, further strengthening Dusit’s presence in the GCC region,” commented Mr Donavanik. “The dusitD2 Palm Mall Muscat will offer the Dusit brand’s signature warm, gracious service, combined with local hospitality customs and world-class entertainment facilities to provide a truly unique experience. We are confident that alongside our partners at Al Jarwani Group, we will be able to make this hotel a great success and a new landmark in the region.”
Chairman of Al Jarwani Group, Mr. Mahmood Al Jarwani, also added, “We are very happy to join hands with Dusit International. The Sultanate of Oman will soon experience the unmatched hospitality and service that is the signature of the Dusit Group. We intend to take this strategic relationship forward, creating more unique projects that add value to the growing Omani tourism sector.
