Elie Younes, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Historically, Oman has held an important strategic location between Asia and Africa for trading and, with the Sultanate’s diversification strategy today, we see a changing economic landscape – one that will see the total contribution of travel and tourism forecast become 8.9 per cent of total GDP in 2028.  We are proud to see our growth aligned to this positive outlook and delighted to introduce our upscale Radisson brand that delivers Scandinavian-inspired hospitality, as well as reinforcing the presence of our upper midscale Park Inn by Radisson brand.”

The new additions take the hospitality group’s portfolio to 84 hotels and over 20,000 rooms in operation and under development across the Middle East region. radissonhotelgroup.com
