Centara signs Al Hail Waves Hotel in Oman
An eye-catching deal to hand over management of the 64-key scheme will come into effect in January 2022, with work then starting on refurbishing the property.
Hotel operator Centara Hotels & Resorts is expanding its footprint in the Middle East.
Centara Hotels & Resorts and Ibn Saleh Al Hashmi Construction (ISAHC) have jointly announced that a hotel management agreement has been signed for Oman’s Al Hail Waves Hotel. After taking over the running of this property on 1 January 2022, Centara will then turn its attention to renovating the project to meet its operational and brand standards – all while the hotel continues to remain open.
“We are proud and excited to launch our third hotel in Oman, a country blessed with stunning nature, fascinating historical sites, and rich cultural heritage,” said Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO of Centara Hotels & Resorts. “The Omani government has laid out an ambitious roadmap to achieve long-term goals set forth in the Omani Tourism Strategy, and with Ibn Saleh Al Hashmi Construction as our partner, we are confident that we will attract discerning travellers with our sharing, caring family values.”
Al Hail Waves is the third ISAHC project awarded to Centara, following on from Muscat Dunes Hotel and Centara Muscat Hotel Oman.
“For our latest hospitality project in Oman, we are delighted to work once again with Centara Hotels & Resorts,” said Abdullah Saleh Saif Al Hashmi, chairman of Ibn Saleh Al Hashmi Construction. “We share the same position of leadership in everything we do, supported by a common vision of sustainable growth. We have confidence in the group’s international sales and marketing expertise and look forward to a continued journey of success as we offer visitors an appealing choice of top-class hotels in Oman.”
Centrally located for long and short stays
The hotel houses 64 holiday residences, from standard rooms to studios with a kitchenette and two-bedroom apartments encompassing living and dining areas for longer stays.
Amenities within the property include an all-day dining restaurant, two meeting rooms accommodating up to 150 people, a fully equipped gym and a swimming pool with views over the Arabian Sea.
This soon-to-be-transformed property is located north-west of Muscat on the road connecting Al-Seeb and Al Athaiba. The new Muscat International Airport is just a 15-minute drive away.
