In what is undoubtedly a key milestone in its international growth strategy, the Alila Hotels and Resorts Group has recently closed a deal with the Oman's tourism development company Omran which brings Alila one step closer to launching its very first Middle East hotel.

Omran has officially handed over the Jabal Akhdar Hotel the Singapore based hotel group and according to report the resort will be launched in Q2 2014. At the time of the hand over Omram ceo Wael Al Lawati stated:

"The handover of this landmark project is yet another milestone for the growth of tourism in the Sultanate and we look forward to working with Alila Hotels and Resorts to ensure its success. Like Omran, Alila also shares a strong vision for sustainable tourism, making them the ideal partners to take over the management of the project".

The Alila Jabal Akhdar Hotel will be branded under the umbrella of the hotel group's Lifestyle Collection. Nestled atop breathtaking Hajar Mountains in Oman, 200 meters above sea level the property comprises 84 suites and two luxury Jabal villas, on site amenities include a restaurant and bar, outdoor and indoor swimming pools as well as a pampering a Spa making this the ultimate getaway and a truly spectacular property for Alila's first foray into the Middle Eastern market.

Mark Edleson, president of Alila Hotel and Resorts Group remarked:

"Alila is delighted to have been chosen to manage such a prestigious and unique hotel in such a breathtaking location. The Jabal Akhdar region is perfect for our first foray into the Middle East. Its combination of interesting natural eco-systems, physical beauty and intriguing history and culture perfectly fit within our development philosophy".

As part of its commitment to an eco friendly sustainable development, both the interior and exterior of the hotel is said to have designed primarily with locally sourced raw materials. The design of the resort was heavily influenced by traditional Omani culture and as a result the hotel was recently named the "Best Project Design" at the 2013 Dossier Construction Awards and Summit held in Oman last month.
