IntercityHotel opens its third property in Oman

IntercityHotel Muscat, the hotel brand’s third property in the Sultanate of Oman, opened its doors on September 1, 2022. The new hotel building is located within the Ministry and Embassy District of Al Khuwair and is part of the prestigious A’Raya Development Complex.

IntercityHotel Muscat boasts 273 guest rooms that range from standard rooms to deluxe suites. The property includes a special business floor of rooms and suites boasting benefits such as early check-in, late check-out, complimentary welcome drinks and VIP in-room amenities. Furthermore, the hotel features an all-day-dining restaurant called Citrine, a lobby cafe, pool, gym and spa with six treatment rooms. In addition, there are four multi-functional meeting rooms, with a capacity of up to 135 guests, and the A’Raya Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 1,200 people.

According to Siegfried Nierhaus, VP for the Middle East at Deutsche Hospitality: “The Middle East is an important destination for both classical tourism and business travel. IntercityHotel fits nicely into the region, as the concept accommodates the needs of any and all travelers. We look forward to our continued successful trajectory in positioning the brand in Oman alongside the hotels in Salalah and Nizwa while successively expanding our portfolio in this region.”

The hotel’s GM, Renjith Chandran, added: “We are delighted to open the IntercityHotel Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman. The hotel will cater to all markets from business and leisure to major MICE events. Also working with the National Hotel Management (NHI) and Ministry of Manpower, I look forward to welcoming Omani talents to the team.”

IntercityHotel Muscat is positioned within easy reach of Muscat International Airport and the cultural sights of Al Alam Palace and the Mutrah Corniche, with its three-kilometer-long promenade.
