Dubai’s Oman Hotel to reopen at the end of the month

The Oman Hotel in Dubai’s iconic Al Nahyan Square has been reopened after a six-year hiatus, after a seven-month refurbishment.

Dubai Tourism’s tourism chief said the hotel will reopen at 11am on Friday, and it will be open 24 hours a day for the next seven months.

The hotel was originally built in 1998 and was the home of the then King Fahd, the current ruler of the emirate, the Dubai Economic City.

It was once the most visited hotel in the world, and was renovated in 2009, but it was closed in 2015.

It reopened in 2016, with a brand new layout, with the famous Al Nahyans marble-clad lobby, a glass-enclosed terrace and a rooftop bar.

In 2017, it was the most popular tourist attraction in Dubai, and hosted the Dubai Grand Prix.

The hotel was also a favourite with expats visiting the country.
