The Sultanate’s only Marriott Resort, Salalah Marriott Resort in Mirbat, Oman is set to launch its Khareef offer for its international guests and local residents for the upcoming monsoon season.
Starting from the 21st of June 2012 to the 31st of July 2012, the property offers a rate of 50 Omani Rial per person in a Deluxe Double Room including breakfast and 17% taxes and service charges, offering the most attractive rate for both leisure and business travelers who visit Salalah this summer. These special rates are valid for any stay during weekdays and weekends and also include complimentary airport transfers from / to Salalah International Airport as well as a shuttle bus service to the Salalah Khareef Festival upon request.
Ahmed El-Meligui, Director of Sales and Marketing at the Salalah Marriott Resort says: “The Khareef Season offers an ultimate summer escape for everyone due to the low temperatures and unique rainy weather in the Middle Eastern Region. The majority of travelers to the region during the Khareef are GCC tourists who are escaping the heat in their own countries. Our main source markets are locals and residents of Oman representing 48% of the total GCC visitors, followed by UAE with 22%, Saudi Arabia with 17% and Kuwait with 7% of the total GCC visitors.
With Ramadan falling into Khareef Season this year the peak season for the region will be even more compressed and is shortened to only four than the usual six weeks.
“The respective authorities in Salalah have been extremely pro-active and supportive regarding the hoteliers concerns about a shorter season. Therefore the Khareef Festival was moved forward from 21st of June to 18th of July 2012 and all other marketing initiatives have been advanced as well, so the effect of a short Khareef Season has been minimized. I am positive that with our 5 star facilities, our personalized service and our most competitive rates we are looking forward again to another successful Khareef Season in 2012”, concludes El-Meligui.
