The Hyatt hotel chain is growing in Oman, launching the Alila Hinu Bay, its second hotel in the Arabian Peninsula country and the 18th Alila hotel worldwide.

The hotel is located on a secluded stretch of beach in Oman's southwestern region of Dhofar. The area is known for its lush landscapes and balmy summers and is a short drive from Salalah International Airport. Alila Hinu Bay has 112 rooms and private pool villas with an interior design made from local materials, combining natural ingredients with modern elements.

All rooms offer views of the lagoon or sea and have private terraces with seating areas. For families there are rooms with connecting doors. The pool villas offer the ultimate in luxury with private swimming pools and outdoor bathtubs. In addition, all pool villas have direct access to the beach and plenty of space.

Focus on sustainable cuisine

Alila Hinu Bay's restaurants source most of their produce from local suppliers. The Seasalt restaurant welcomes guests right on the shore overlooking the sea. The Lobby Lounge serves traditional soft drinks and light Arabic dishes.

The Alila Hinu Bay Leisure Concierge team looks after guests' well-being and organises tours and excursions on request. For those seeking relaxation, the Alila Spa is the place to be. The spa offers a variety of treatments using only natural products, as well as a range of yoga and meditation classes.

Alila Hinu Bay in Oman joins Hyatt's existing Alila brand portfolio of 18 hotels and resorts in Indonesia, India, China, Cambodia, Malaysia and the United States. Alila Hinu Bay also expands Hyatt's presence in the Middle East with the 27th Hyatt hotel in the region.

New strategy

The group is also doing a lot in terms of strategy. It has just been announced that the American hotel group has bought the Apple Leisure Group (ALG) for 2.7 billion US dollars. With this, Hyatt has taken a big step towards a new strategy. It is about the expansion of the segment of holiday resorts with all-inclusive service and the further implementation of the asset-light strategy.

The expansion of the resorts is also underlined by the partnership with the 12.18 group of companies. In the course of the cooperation, Hyatt made the 7Pines Resort Ibiza the first hotel of the "Destination by Hyatt" brand in Europe at the beginning of June this year. The luxury resort is located on the west coast, on the edge of a pine forest on the Spanish Balearic island and offers 185 suites.
