WYNDHAM HOTELS and Resorts continues to ramp up its expansion across the Middle East with the opening of two new hotels in Muscat, Oman.
Marking the introduction of the Wyndham Garden and Ramada Encore by Wyndham brands to Oman, the openings underlines Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ commitment to strengthening its presence in the market and to further support Oman’s ambitious Vision 2040 programme, which includes a focus on developing the country’s mid-market hotel sector and creating more job opportunities, in a bid to welcome 11 million visitors to the Sultanate by 2040.
Over the past year, the Sultanate has become an increasingly popular destination for travellers, witnessing an increase of more than 25% in inbound visitors in the first six months of 2019 alone. The surge in visitor numbers follows the Ministry of Tourism’s sustained efforts to promote Oman as a key travel destination and attract investment to the sector.
Panos Loupasis, Vice President Development, Middle East, Eurasia & Africa, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts said, “The anticipated openings of these two new hotels in Muscat mark a significant milestone as we seek to expand our presence in this important market. We want to bring diverse accommodation choices to travellers across the Sultanate, and support Oman in its ambitious 2040 tourism plans, particularly on developing its mid-market hotel sector. With their unrivalled locations in the heart of Muscat’s business and leisure district, these newest additions to the Wyndham Garden and Ramada Encore by Wyndham family are the perfect properties to complement our growing offering in the region, and guests can look forward to the same exceptional service they have come to expect from our brands around the world.”
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ openings in Oman are part of Company’s wider growth plans for the Middle East and Africa region, which include the addition of 23 new properties by 2023 and are focused on expanding the economy and mid-scale offering across the region.
The two new hotels in Oman will be managed by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, adding to over 400 managed hotels operated globally and expanding its managed capabilities into new and established markets.
