Marriott has signed a management contract for its first property in the Sultanate of Oman with Dhofar Tourism Company SAOG.

The 234-room Salalah Beach Marriott Resort, scheduled to open in December 2009, will be part of a mixed-used, beachfront development located approximately 75 kilometers from Salalah, Oman’s southernmost city which is well-regarded for its picturesque mountains and sandy beaches and excellent diving.

 Nearby attractions include the tomb of the Prophet Ayoub (better known a Job of the Old Testament) and the ruins of a palace thought to be that of the Queen of Sheba. The marshy khawrs dotting the coastline are sanctuaries for a broad variety of migrating birds, turning the region into a bird watchers paradise.

“We are thrilled that we will soon be represented in Oman,” said Ed Fuller, president and managing director for international lodging for Marriott International. “Oman has worked hard over the last several years to promote its tourism sector. We look forward to participating in their efforts to encourage tourism to the country and to ensuring visitors to Oman experience a welcoming environment.”

Guests at the Salalah Beach Marriott Resort will be able to enjoy beach or mountain views and the choice of staying in the resort’s main building or in surrounding chalets offering studios and one and two-bedroom configurations.

 Guest rooms will feature flat screen, high definition television, high speed internet access, Marriott’s renowned bed and bath linens and amenities and in-room mini-bar and safe.

Dining and entertainment options will include a casual, all-day restaurant, a seafood outlet, an Arabic Café, an English Pub and a lobby lounge / bar.

Recreational amenities will be highlighted by a spa and fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool with separate adult and kids activities (play ground area) and a dive center. Other amenities will encompass 24-hour room service, a business center and a retail shop.

For social events and conferences, the resort will have 6,348 square feet of space including a 3,551-square foot ballroom, 2,260 square feet of individual meeting rooms and a 538-square foot board room.
