Oman's hotel industry has been enjoying a boost in business, as a healthy flow of travellers from across the Gulf region streamed to the Sultanate for the recently completed Muscat Festival.
Organised by the Muscat Municipality for the third time this year, the five-week event features a variety of cultural activities for all the family, and aims to boost Oman's image as a key tourist attraction in the Gulf region.
"Oman has a lot to offer tourists and events such as the Muscat Festival are crucial in establishing it as a key Gulf destination," said Naji Abi Farah, Director of Sales & Marketing at the Crowne Plaza Muscat. "The event is very important to us, we have put in a lot of hard work, and are now receiving very positive responses from our guests."
"Our convenient location in the prestigious Qurum Heights area, will allow visitors to enjoy the Festival activities, yet not at the expense of comfort and relaxation," he said.
Just 20 minutes away by car from Seeb International Airport, the Crowne Plaza Muscat is in the vicinity of Al Qurum Natural Park, one of the festival's four official locations, tempting visitors with fireworks and stunt shows, theatre performances, and an Omani heritage village.
