Welcome to the luxurious Salalah Rotana Resort in Oman where you will be embraced by the traditional warm and friendly Omani hospitality.
Set along the shores of the Indian Ocean, The 5-star waterfront resort's 400 splendid rooms and suites are beautifully built around the lagoons, water features and manmade canals for an unforgettable experience. The upscale hotel’s Omani-inspired architecture features a series of clusters surrounding the main building, housing major public facilities and amenities. Salalah Rotana Resort is a scenic 20km drive from Salalah Airport.
The resort has been carved from desert rock as the hotel rises out of the water, making it part of the landscape. In-room furnishings including beds, tables and sofas have been integrated into the main walls while Arabesque geometric designs and stone archways, constructed using traditional techniques, resemble a cathedral atrium and provide areas of contemplation. Natural light covers every corridor in the hotel as bright furniture provides the contrast against matt-finished walls, changing colour and texture as the shadows move and a new area of the hotel is bathed in sunlight throughout the day. High ceilings and a central, internally-lit handmade red clay dome complement the wooden finishing and decorative mashrabiya latticework windows.
