Carlson Rezidor announces the Park Inn by Radisson Hotel & Residence Duqm, Oman

10 May 2013

Carlson Rezidor, one of the ten largest hotel groups worldwide, announces the Park Inn by Radisson Hotel & Residence Duqm in Oman (Middle East). The new property is scheduled to welcome the first guests in Q4 2013, and will further build on the success of the existing Park Inn by Radisson Hotel Muscat, which is popular for its modern design and cool amenities, such as a rooftop swimming pool and fitness centre.

“The Middle East is an important development market for Carlson Rezidor. We aim to further strengthen our core brands in the region – Radisson Blu is covering the contemporary upper upscale segment; Park Inn by Radisson the dynamic mid-market segment targeting the growing clientele of Gen X and Y”, commented Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO The Rezidor Hotel Group.

The Park Inn by Radisson Hotel & Residence Duqm is already under construction and ready to take advantage of the US$10 billion investment the government is making in Duqm; a city that’s getting ready to emerge as Oman’s industrial and economic hub.

The hotel, located 8 kilometres from the airport and 10 kilometres from the Port of Duqm offers 50 one-bedroom chalets, 9 two-bedroom villas, 13 one-bedroom and 2 two-bedroom apartments. The design and the character of all 73 accommodation units and the entire hotel will be inimitably Park Inn by Radisson, designed for the new generation traveller. The hotel will grow by another 46 units in the next 5 years. The future-forward and trendsetting property will also offer an all-day dining restaurant, free wireless internet throughout the hotel, indoor and outdoor bars, as well as an outdoor swimming pool and a gym.
