The new hotel will have 150 rooms overlooking the Greg Norman-designed Al Mouj Golf Club; It will become operational in 2027
The Saud Bahwan Group, which has a long history of association with Japan and has been instrumental in bringing some of the biggest Japanese brands to Oman, is now joining hands with the Okura Nikko Hotel Management group to get the first-ever Okura-branded property and the first Japanese-branded hotel in the Sultanate of Oman.
The Okura Resort Muscat will be a sprawling property located at the southeastern tip of the Arabian peninsula, overlooking the beautiful Al Mouj Golf Club in the capital of Oman. Saud Bahwan Group will manage the new property.
The new hotel, which is expected to be operational by 2027, will have 150 guest rooms, each with a common area of approximately 50 square meters.
The rooms will feature views of the Greg Norman-designed golf course that has hosted world-class events and won accolades for its design.
The Hotel in Oman is built in a fusion of Omani and Japanese styles and traditions. A variety of dining options will be available in the hotel day and night. The hotel will be serving Japanese cuisine with fine dining.
The hotel will also offer banquet facilities, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spa, and a gymnasium.
Saud Bahwan Group’s association with Japanese brands began in the mid-1960s when it introduced Toshiba in Oman. Soon after, agencies for renowned brands like Seiko and Akai too were acquired.
In the late 1960s, Toyota Motor Corporation was added to the group’s portfolio. It also has agencies for Lexus, Hino, Komatsu, Kato, Yokohama, and many more.
Mohammed Saud Bahwan, Chairman of Saud Bahwan Group, commented: “It gives me immense happiness to be collabing with the globally known and famous Okura Nikko Hotels.
Toshihiro Ogita, President of Hotel Okura Company, added that they are grateful that the Okura Group will take the Sultanate of Oman to new heights.
This expansion of the hotel and its branches into the Middle East will create a new base for us as we seek to raise the profile of Okura Nikko Hotels in the region.”
