Salalah Rotana Resort

The five-star Salalah Rotana Resort opened in March 2014 in the capital of the southern Omani Governorate of Dhofar, and is the largest free-standing hotel in the sultanate. Surrounded by one of Oman’s most breathtaking natural settings, the resort is nestled between spectacular mountains, fresh water springs and tropical scenery.

Set on the pristine Arabian coast, each of the resort’s luxury rooms and suites are located directly on unique lagoons. An elaborate network of manmade Venetian waterways connect the property to the Indian Ocean and are filled with 105,000 square metres of seawater, refreshed every four days using natural tidal patterns.

With a promise of treasured time, the resort provides five-star opulence synonymous with the Rotana brand, infused with traditional Omani hospitality. Drawing inspiration from the landscape’s natural beauty and culture, the heart of the hotel features high ceilings and a central, internally-lit handmade red clay dome complementing the wooden finishing and decorative Mashrabiya latticework windows. In-room furnishings have been carved from desert rock while Arabesque geometric designs and stone archways, constructed using traditional techniques, resemble atriums.

Ranging from 43 to 143 square metres, Salalah Rotana Resort boasts spacious accommodations. Private terraces, en suite bathrooms and generous living areas make for a grand setting with optimal privacy and superior comfort. With four restaurants including Saffron, The Beach Restaurant and Silk Road, as well as the Arabesque Lounge and Terrace, the lobby lounge, the resort offers a range of dining options from casual beachside cuisine and all-day dining to fine dining Middle Eastern and Western cuisine.

Guests looking to rejuvenate and rebalance can make use of the ‘Bodylines Fitness and Wellness Club’ and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts or indulge in spa treatments at ‘Zen the spa at Rotana’, Rotana’s home-grown spa concept derived from ancient holistic Asian philosophies. The spa features eight treatment rooms that blend natural Omani elements with holistic treatments and rituals including full body massages, facials and soothing wraps. The resort also has five fully equipped meeting rooms, a Grand Ballroom, state-of-the-art Business Centre, making it the perfect destination for both leisure and business travellers.
