Serving Oman’s ever growing tourism market, Salalah Rotana Resort’s guest arrivals grew 20 per cent year on year compared to 2015. The resort attributes this growth to its strategic partnership deals with major regional and international tour operators.

The resort welcomed an astounding number of guests from Europe with Germany at as the main feeder market closely followed by Italy, Poland and Slovakia. While the monsoon season, locally called Khareef with its rains and cooler climate continues to act as a key driver for tourism to Salalah by attracting residents of neighbouring countries from July to September yearly.
