The new hotel Al Mouj Rayhaan by Rotana – coming up at Al Mouj Muscat, Oman
Oman-based Golden Group Holding signed an agreement with Rotana at Arabian Travel Market 2017 to manage an upcoming property in Muscat's Al Mouj. The agreement was signed by Nasser Al Nowais, chairman of Rotana, and Sheikh Salim bin Ahmed Al Ghazali, chairman of Golden Group Holding, at a ceremony on the Rotana stand at the trade show.
The new hotel – named Al Mouj Rayhaan by Rotana – will be located within the Al Mouj development, an integrated tourist complex spread along a 6km stretch of Muscat’s coastline, comprising a mix of hotels, luxury residential properties, retail and dining facilities and a private yachting hub in addition to Oman’s only signature PGA-standard 18-hole links golf course, designed by Greg Norman. Al Mouj Rayhaan by Rotana will feature 250 rooms, suites and apartments and is scheduled to open before 2020. Rotana and GGH had previously signed an agreement in 2015 for the development of five new hotels in Oman. Rotana now has nine hotels set to open in the Sultanate by 2020, and once complete, will add more than 1,600 keys to its existing inventory of 400 rooms in Oman
