Millenium & Copthorne will open two new properties in Oman, including an eco-theme hotel under the company’s Agarwood brand in 2017, according to a Construction Week Online report.
The first property, and the first Middle East property for the Agarwood brand, a brand created for the Middle East, will comprise 286 guest rooms, villas and apartments. The hotel brand Agarwood is named after the wood that produces oud, a scent used in local homes and perfumes.
The property will have 286 rooms which comprises a hotel, villas and apartments featuring a sustainable design concept. In addition to the accommodation, the eco hotel will offer guests a ballroom, business centre, kids’ club, all-day specialty restaurant, retail outlets and a wellness spa.
Ali Hamad Lakhraim Alzaabi, President & CEO, Millennium & Copthorne MEA said in the report, “We didn’t want another hotel from another location just copied and put in Salalah. We wanted to capture Salalah and its spirit with our hotel. Agarwood, with its relation to oud and eco-friendly focus, is the perfect brand for Salalah.”
A minimalist-designed 320-room, second Middle East property from Millennium & Copthorne’s Studio M budget brand, is planned for the Al Hail district in Muscat.
