IHG has signed a management agreement with Redhat Al Jabal to debut its boutique brand, Hotel Indigo, in Oman.
A new-build property, Hotel Indigo Jabal Al Akhdar will feature 176 rooms and will open its doors to guests in early 2022.
Pascal Gauvin, managing director, India, Middle East & Africa, IHG, said: “We are pleased to announce the signing of our first Hotel Indigo in Oman in partnership with an esteemed company such as Redhat Al Jabal LLC . Hotel Indigo is a unique brand that allows every individual property to draw inspiration from the local surroundings and offer an immersive and authentic experience to guests. Combined with an excellent location, I am confident Hotel Indigo Jabal Al Akhdar will be a destination on its own and will be a popular choice amongst international, regional and domestic visitors alike . This month, we are also opening doors to Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown – the first Hotel Indigo in GCC. The brand is a great fit for the region - it caters to new guest segments that are visiting the Middle East and are looking for a more individualistic experience and want to feel immersed in the destination they are visiting.
“The hospitality industry has faced the biggest challenge in its history following the global outbreak of Covid-19. Underscoring industry confidence, this signing is an encouraging sign and reaffirms a strong mid to long term outlook for the sector. Oman has always been known for its hospitality and we remain committed to meaningfully grow our footprint here and bring more hotels and brands to key locations in the country to offer world-class hospitality to guests coming to the region.”
