Coral Muscat Hotel & Apartments nears completion

The new Coral Muscat Hotel & Apartments is in advanced stages of construction and is due for completion by the second quarter of 2014.

Part of the five properties scheduled to open this year under the Hospitality Management Holdings (HMH) banner, the hotel is set to become the flagship hospitality offering for Coral Hotels & Resorts in Muscat, Oman.

Laurent A. Voivenel, CEO, HMH commented: ” The construction has really picked up pace over the last few months and it is wonderful to see the building taking shape. The developers have done a fantastic job and we are confident Coral Muscat Hotel & Apartments will turn out to be a preferred address for both corporate and leisure travelers to the city.”

The hotel is located in Qurum, a 20 minute-drive from Muscat International Airport, with a close proximity to the diplomatic and commercial city centre.

Describing the facilities, Voivenel said: “Coral Muscat Hotel & Apartment is being developed to be a deluxe 4-star property and is part of a shopping arcade and multiplex. The hotel features 88 beautifully furnished apartments including 56 two-bedroom & 32 one-bedroom units. On site will be an international all-day-dining restaurant, pool deck and lounge, terrace lounge, superb meeting venues for small to medium sized conferences as well as excellent leisure and fitness facilities such as a fully-equipped gymnasium, aerobics room and swimming pool.”

He added: “Muscat is one of the most promising destinations in the GCC and has the strongest hotel market in Oman, with occupancy rates exceeding 60 per cent in H1 2013, closely followed by Musandam and Dhofar. We are truly excited to be here and the property represents the success of our brand expansion in the GCC.”
