“The completion of the JW Marriot reinforces our position as the largest hotel investment Company in the Sultanate and given the size and quality of our portfolio, we are exploring ways to share ownership of this portfolio with the private sector,” said Walichnowski.

“We want to give local and international investors a chance to invest in the growth of the Omani tourism sector in a convenient and cost effective way.”

According to OMRAN, the 304 room hotel is designed in accordance with the highest international standards for health and safety. They added that the new hotel is compliant with the advanced LEED green building certification, which aligns with its sustainability policies.

The hotel will feature six food and beverage outlets, two ballrooms, a business centre, meeting rooms, as well as a spa and fitness centre.  It will also encompass three outdoor pools and open-air function areas.

The hotel is being built next door to the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre as part of the final phase of the development.
