Ritz-Carlton Assumes Management of Oman Hotel

Ritz-Carlton is doing all it can to get a further foothold in the Middle East. The luxury hotel operator has signed a management agreement to take over operations of the Al Bustan Palace from InterContinental Hotels Group.

Word is Ritz-Carlton will assume the role as of this Friday, July 1. All current employees are said to be staying on. The hotel also recently underwent a multimillion-dollar refurbishment.

"The Omani capital has long been a key aspiration for Ritz-Carlton and we have waited a long time to find the perfect opportunity," said Herve Humler, president and chief operating officer of Ritz-Carlton.

The hotel has 250 rooms and suites, with acres of landscaped gardens and what's said to be the longest beach in the country.

Ritz-Carlton also has a property under development in Abu Dhabi, scheduled to open at the end of the year.
