Carlson Rezidor: Quorvus Collection welcomes new member — the Hormuz Grand Hotel in Muscat, Oman

Brussels, Belgium, 2015-10-28 — /Travel PR News/ — Carlson Rezidor, one  of the most dynamic hotel groups worldwide, announces a new member of the  luxury Quorvus Collection: the existing Hormuz Grand Hotel in Muscat (Oman). The  property with 231 guest rooms will join the collection in late 2015. Quorvus  Collection is a new generation of expertly curated luxury hotels inspired by  the lifestyle and sensibilities of the contemporary global traveller.

“We are delighted to  add one of Oman’s flagship hotels to the Quorvus Collection. The hotel ideally  complements our Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson properties in the city,  and allows us to offer an additional segment to our national and international  guests and to create operational synergies”, said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President  and CEO of Rezidor.

“The Middle East is a  core market for Quorvus Collection. We already have one member in the region –  the Symphony Style Hotel Kuwait – and will further expand our network of  carefully selected properties together with our partners”, added Elie Younes,  Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer of Rezidor.

“We  are delighted to be partnering with Carlson Rezidor for such an exciting  project. With its iconic architecture and ideal location, we are confident that  the Hormuz  Grand will fast become the first choice of  travellers looking for world-class luxury and hospitality in Oman”, commented Khadim Awadh, Chairman of Hormuz Grand.

The Hormuz Grand  features 231 elegant rooms and suites, and is located 4km away from Muscat International  Airport and 20km away from the city centre. It is situated at one of the  premium locations in Oman that is a hub for governmental and academic  institutions, shopping centre and golf courses. The hotel offers two  restaurants (all-day-dining and a celebrated Indian venue; a third seafood  restaurant is under development), modern conference rooms including a 390 sqm  ballroom, a pool, an outstanding spa managed by ISpa (Thailand), and a gym.  With the ever expanding business and leisure tourism into the city, the Hormuz  Grand promises to meet the needs of business and leisure travellers alike.

Quorvus Collection  was launched in 2014 to unite individual and inspiring luxury properties  offering distinguished experiences. Different in scale, architecture, ambiance  and design, the portfolio aims to include historic landmarks, contemporary  residences, classic boutiques and urban retreats. All hotels offer a range of  essential services perfectly tailored to the guests’ needs. The “Q24” concept  comprises six core lifestyle elements – wellness, replenishment and style  encompassing the body; and inspiration, entertainment and connectivity to meet  the needs of the mind.
