Thailand's leading hotel operator Centara Hotels and Resorts and Oman's Ibn Saleh Al Hashmi Construction (ISAHC) have announced the signing of a hotel management agreement for Al Hail Waves to be managed by Centara.

The management deal will come into effect on Jan 1, 2022 after which Centara will start refurbishing the property to align with its brand and operational standards.

The Omani government has laid out an ambitious roadmap to achieve long-term goals set forth in Oman's tourism strategy.

"With ISAHC as our partner, we are confident we will attract travellers with our sharing and caring family values," said Thirayuth Chirathivat, chief executive of Centara Hotels and Resorts.

"We are proud and excited to launch our third hotel in Oman, a country blessed with stunning nature, fascinating historical sites, and rich cultural heritage," Mr Thirayuth added.

Founded in 1994, ISAHC is one of the fastest-growing construction companies in Oman with a proven track record in an impressive portfolio including hotels, private villas, and residential buildings. Al Hail Waves will be the third ISAHC project awarded to Centara after the Muscat Dunes Hotel and Centara Muscat Hotel Oman.

"For our latest hospitality project in Oman, we are delighted to work again with Centara Hotels and Resorts. We share the same position of leadership in everything we do, supported by a common vision of sustainable growth. We have confidence in the group's international sales and marketing expertise and look forward to a continued journey of success and offer visitors an appealing choice of top-class hotels in Oman," said Abdullah Saleh Saif Al Hashmi, chairman of ISAHC.

Situated in the northwest of Muscat on a road connecting Al-Seeb and Al Athaiba, Al Hail Waves managed by Centara is centrally located with both the Seeb Corniche and the beach within walking distance from the hotel.
