The Muscat Hills Intercontinental Hotel will cover over 56,000sqm land and will abut the greens of Muscat Hills Golf, whose new club house it will also manage. The hotel which will offer 250rooms with four food and beverage outlets along with business and leisure facilities will add to the existing Intercontinental Hotel in Muscat. With 2 Crowne Plazas in the city (there are other Crowne Plazas in Suhar, Ad Duqm and Salalah) and a Holiday Inn its clear that the IHG group look to cement their success in the country.
