Brussels - October 20, 2015
Carlson Rezidor, one of the most dynamic hotel groups worldwide, announces a new member of the luxury Quorvus Collection: the existing Hormuz Grand Hotel in Muscat (Oman). The property with 231 guest rooms will join the collection in late 2015. Quorvus Collection is a new generation of expertly curated luxury hotels inspired by the lifestyle and sensibilities of the contemporary global traveller.
“We are delighted to add one of Oman’s flagship hotels to the Quorvus Collection. The hotel ideally complements our Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson properties in the city, and allows us to offer an additional segment to our national and international guests and to create operational synergies”, said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President and CEO of Rezidor.
“The Middle East is a core market for Quorvus Collection. We already have one member in the region – the Symphony Style Hotel Kuwait – and will further expand our network of carefully selected properties together with our partners”, added Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer of Rezidor.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Carlson Rezidor for such an exciting project. With its iconic architecture and ideal location, we are confident that the Hormuz Grand will fast become the first choice of travellers looking for world-class luxury and hospitality in Oman”, commented Khadim Awadh, Chairman of Hormuz Grand.
The Hormuz Grand features 231 elegant rooms and suites, and is located 4km away from Muscat International Airport and 20km away from the city centre. It is situated at one of the premium locations in Oman that is a hub for governmental and academic institutions, shopping centre and golf courses. The hotel offers two restaurants (all-day-dining and a celebrated Indian venue; a third seafood restaurant is under development), modern conference rooms including a 390 sqm ballroom, a pool, an outstanding spa managed by ISpa (Thailand), and a gym. With the ever expanding business and leisure tourism into the city, the Hormuz Grand promises to meet the needs of business and leisure travellers alike.
Quorvus Collection was launched in 2014 to unite individual and inspiring luxury properties offering distinguished experiences. Different in scale, architecture, ambiance and design, the portfolio aims to include historic landmarks, contemporary residences, classic boutiques and urban retreats. All hotels offer a range of essential services perfectly tailored to the guests’ needs. The “Q24” concept comprises six core lifestyle elements – wellness, replenishment and style encompassing the body; and inspiration, entertainment and connectivity to meet the needs of the mind.
