Shaza Hotels partners once again with Oman based Taameer Investment to manage a new hotel in Muscat.
Dubai, UAE. Located on the prestigious Marina-front of The Wave Muscat, the hotel will offer a unique experience in the Sultanate for guests looking for a contemporary and trendy setting, which at the same time is respectful of the Omani culture.
The Marina side of the iconic Omani development will become a major leisure attraction for the local community as well as for tourists visiting the capital. Key demand generators such as the adjacent shopping district and the water-front board walk, with its various dining options, will allow the hotel to attract a very diverse market, creating an important anchor and accessible focal point for the neighbourhood.
Simon Coombs, President and CEO of Shaza Hotels, expressed his gratitude to Taameer Investment for entrusting Shaza with yet another project: “This is our second hotel with Taameer Investment. We first signed a beautiful resort in Salalah which we expect to open in 24 months, and are now keen to manage our partner’s innovative 190 room hotel which will definitely signify a new stage platform in the Sultanate’s hospitality offer.”
Coombs also added that the trust that Taameer Investment has in Shaza to deliver on its promise and achieve owner’s expectations, is very rewarding recognition for a brand that is growing rapidly. Shaza has recently announced several hotel projects including Doha, Amman, and Jeddah, with other projects currently under negotiation in Dubai, Riyadh, Bahrain and Istanbul. “Our business philosophy is to foster a strong partnership with owners who share our vision, and are looking to develop with Shaza a unique collection of hotels that respect the values and cultures of the region, and celebrates them. We are grateful to have found such a partner in Taameer Investment”.
Mr. Sulaiman Bin Masoud Al-Harthy, CEO of Taameer Investment, commented: “we are proud today to
announce the birth of Taameer Investment’s new development and we are delighted to appoint Shaza
Hotels once again as operator for this hotel in Oman.”
Since 2012, Oman has seen the birth of several hospitality projects from renowned brands. The increase
in tourism arrivals, the expansion of the major airports, the demand for quality accommodation, and the
steady growth of average room rates have encouraged Shaza to solidify its presence in the Omani market. Shaza strongly supports the tourism vision of the Sultanate, and is keen to continue its Omani
expansion across the country.
