The Ministry of Tourism (MoT) is doing its best to ensure that all facilities and roads in Dhofar will be ready for Eid holidays and the khareef season. The ministry is hopeful that facilities damaged due to Tropical Cyclone Mekunu will be restored.

MoT good on welcoming vacationers to Dhofar for khareef season

According to Marhoon Said al Amri, director common of Tourism, the tourist season this year is anticipated to be far better than the prior a single thanks to the heavy rain that the governorate witnessed due to Mekunu.

“MoT is performing every thing to make certain all facilities in Dhofar are prepared for Eid holidays and the khareef season. The tourist season will be far better than the prior ones as heavy rainfall has led to waterfalls and overflowing wadis and springs.

“This will attract a lot of visitors. The competent authorities are working hard to repair the roads leading to various tourist sites,” mentioned Amri. Amri mentioned some hotels are nevertheless getting guests in spite of minor harm such as water logging in the gardens and parking places. He also hailed the efforts of hotels who contributed successfully to minimise the losses in the course of the cyclone.

“MoT had formed a crisis management team and issued a circular before Cyclone Mekunu hit Dhofar. Keeping this in mind, hotel managers in Salalah formed emergency teams and cooperated with us extensively in minimising losses and ensuring the safety of their guests.”

Hotels in Dhofar are good about welcoming vacationers. “Salalah has more than 35 hotel apartments and ten hotels. Hotels will be ready on the first day of Eid al Fitr to welcome visitors. There are three new hotels that are to be opened. While one of them will open in July, two others will open by the end of the year.” The khareef season officially starts from June 21 and concludes on September 21.
