Shaza Hotels opens flagship Mysk by Shaza Al Mouj in Muscat

Shishira Sreenivas, January 4th, 2018

Shaza Hotels announced the grand opening of its flagship hotel, Mysk by Shaza in Muscat, Oman. The opening event was organised by the Golden Group Hotel, a hotel investment group and the owners of the hotel.  

The flagship hotel is situated in the busy Al Mouj Muscat Marina and is close to the Muscat International Airport.

Shaza Hotels CEO Simon Coombs said: “We are privileged to associate with the Golden Group Holding and its Chairman, Sheikh Salem Al Ghazali, in developing this hotel. Al Mouj is a very unique development that has rapidly acquired recognition for an outstanding marina lifestyle, its integrated community, and leisure experiences all within this mixed-use environment.”

“Shaza Hotels brings a head turning product to the already rich flavour of hospitality in Oman, clearly demonstrating our growth ambitions in Oman where we currently have three hotels,” Coombs adds.

The 195-key upscale hotel, inspired by Arabic history and the Omani culture, has four restaurants on site, a business centre, multi-use halls with modern amenities, a swimming pool with a magnificent view overlooking the marina, and a centre for recreation and fitness.

Golden Group Holding chairman Sheikh Salim Bin Ahmed Al Ghazali believes Mysk by Shaza will add to the growing tourism sector in the Sultanate.

“The opening of the hotel coincides with the commercial launch of the Muscat International Airport which will create a qualitative leap in the number of flights coming to the Sultanate. This requires doubling of residences and hotel services,” Al Ghazali said.
