How Oman Looks to Grow Tourism: No Mega-Hotels Here

Josh Corder , Skift

June 25th, 2024 at 9:00 AM EDT

As the UAE and Saudi Arabia continue their mega-projects, we look at Oman's 'calmer' approach to tourism.

Josh Corder

Tourism in the Middle Eastern country of Oman is improving. The Gulf nation was hit hard by Covid and had long struggled to recoup its tourism sector. But government measures are helping.

Unlike the UAE and Saudi Arabia, Oman has largely stayed away from giga-projects and mega-hotels to spark tourism. Instead, the country focuses heavily on its heritage sector to boost travel, as well as its natural environment.

The country aims to increase the tourism sector’s contribution to 10% of the gross domestic product (GDP) by 2040. Oman also plans to attract 11.7 million tourists by 2040. To achieve these goals, the country is looking to attract more than $51 billion in investment.

Here are the latest tourism figures:

  • 767,900 visitors year-to-date by April 2024 compared to 668,168 up to the same point last year.
  • Revenues from three- to five-star hotels rose 10.7% to $242 million.
  • Hotel occupancy increased by 7%.
  • Around 4.3 million tourists visited Oman last year.

Oman’s Tourism Drives

One key development in Oman recently has been the extension of its ‘Khareef’ season. Khareef is the monsoon season in Oman, and an important period in the tourism calendar as temperatures drop and travelers flock to cooler parts of the country.

Traditionally, Khareef is promoted by Oman from late June to early September, but this year has been extended to a full three months of promotions to spur tourism.

Running from June 21 to September 21, Khareef is often Oman’s busiest travel period. In 2023, the season brought in close to one million travelers. Officials hope the extra few weeks of promotion will draw an additional 300,000 visitors.

In Salalah during this year, temperatures can range from 68°F to 77°F, a stark contrast to the wider Middle East during summer.

Recent Success

According to research from the World Tourism and Travel Council (WTTC), in 2023 Oman’s tourism GDP contribution increased by almost 35%, totaling 2.8 billion Omani Riyals ($7.2 billion). The sector witnessed job growth of 15%, employing 191,500 people.

Last year, international visitors put 1.1 billion Omani Riyals ($2.8 billion) into the economy, a 69% increase from 2022, while spending by domestic travelers hit 1.4 billion Omani Riyals ($3.6 billion).

WTTC is forecasting that the sector will grow its GDP contribution to more than 3.3 billion Omani Riyals ($8.5 billion) in 2024, 7.6% of the country’s economy, and is projected to employ more than 206,000 people across the country.

Collaborative Efforts

Surrounded by tourism powerhouses such as Dubai and the ever-growing Saudi Arabia , Oman has become increasingly focused on collaborations with nearby countries to boost its tourism.

In March, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) and Oman Ministry of Heritage and Tourism launched a ‘See Double’ campaign, prompting travelers to visit both destinations during their summer holidays.

That same month, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Oman signed a pact to promote cruises across all four destinations. The cruise sector contributed around 380,000 tourists into Oman before the pandemic.

The Sultanate has also been a key voice in promoting the upcoming ‘GCC zone’ visa.

Unified Travel in the Gulf

In October 2023, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman agreed to form a ‘ GCC zone ‘ for visas, a similar situation as the Schengen Zone across the EU. This visa was first mentioned in May 2023 at a conference in Dubai, where the countries’ ministers shared their hopes to unite the GCC so tourists would consider cross-country travel like they do in Europe.

This new visa comes under the banner of the “Gulf Strategy for Tourism 2023-2030,” which ministers also said is in the works. The meeting also looked into the establishment of a GCC Tourism Statistics Platform.

It will either roll out this year or next and has been universally praised by tourism leaders.

“This new Schengen-style visa is huge for [GCC] tourism and Ras Al Khaimah will see a huge benefit,” said Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority CEO Raki Phillips at the  Skift Global Forum East 2023 .

“There is nothing more important than a collaborative approach. We should compete collaboratively. In this part of the world, we want to be collaborative. That could mean visa processing, hotels, and airlines.”

Nyc airbnb listings drop 80% after crackdown — but effort did not help hotels, housing: report.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Airbnb rental listings in the five boroughs dropped 80% following a crackdown by New York City , but the effort has only driven hotel prices up while having little impact on improving housing affordability, according to a new report.

In September, the city began enforcing strict rules on short-term rentals like Airbnb, Vrbo and Bookings.com, with the goal of prioritizing long-term housing and helping the hospitality industry.

As of June 24, there were just 2,276 legal short-term rentals, Business Insider reported this week, down from 22,246 before the enforcement began. And hotel prices and rents in the city have only increased.

“The rules haven’t improved housing affordability in the city — rents continue to rise and housing stock has reached historic lows,” Nathan Rotman, Airbnb’s Northeast policy lead, told Business Insider.

Average daily hotel rates are over $300 in the Big Apple, according to a report from state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.

Since the city began requiring short-term rentals be registered, it received 6,395 total host registration applications, approved only 2,276, denied 1,746 and asked 2,269 applicants to submit additional information, according to the Office of Special Enforcement.

There are likely many more listings, because registered hosts can have multiple listings, the travel site Skift noted.

“New York City has only approved a couple of thousand host registrations, and all for reservations where the host is present during the stay,” the outlet reported. “That’s great news for neighborhoods sick of house parties and illegal hotels, and dour news for tourists and short-term rental platforms.”

In addition to the new registration requirement, hosts must be present during the stay, and a maximum of two guests are allowed.

The rules also ban separate apartments or living quarters for short-term stays in both apartment buildings and private homes, and threaten stiff penalties of up to $5,000 per violation.

Critics also say the near-ban hurts homeowners who relied on the extra income and visitors who can’t afford sky-high hotel rates.

Hotel costs skyrocketed 20% during the last holiday season, The Post reported , and are up 10% overall, according to experts. The increased room rates were also attributed to  asylum seekers , experts noted in December, as they were occupying more than 10,000 low-cost rooms.

An Airbnb survey from late last year found that the law was driving tourists away from the Big Apple, with 65% of respondents saying they are less likely to visit due to pricier hotel stays and 30% saying they would stay with friends and family if they do come.

Fifty-four percent said they are more likely to book short-term stayed on regulated platforms now.

Pro-housing supporters of the city’s regulations argue officials should prioritize homes over hotels.

They say short-term rentals can take homes that would otherwise be lived in full time off the market, potentially exacerbating the housing shortage, according to BI. 

“Illegal short-term rental operators hurt our hospitality industry and make it harder for New Yorkers to find affordable housing, and we must ensure we are holding them accountable,” Mayor Adams said in March.

The Malaysian hospitality industry took a significant step towards sustainable tourism with the launch of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) certification for hotels and resorts. This pioneering initiative is a collaborative effort between SGS, the Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH) and SAIMATRIX INTERGRATED.

On June 14, 2024, all parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and officially launched the ESG certification. Surya Kumar, Undersecretary of the Tourism Licensing and Enforcement Division from The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC) attended the event as the guest of honor.

Officially Supported by MOTAC

Officially supported by MOTAC, ESG Certification for Malaysian Hotels & Resorts aims to provide clear guidelines and a comprehensive, holistic and measurable checklist for hotels and resorts in Malaysia. The certification will serve as the industry's benchmark, following the nation's 2030 vision for sustainable tourism. By adopting these standards, hotels and resorts can ensure they operate in an environmentally responsible, socially equitable and well-governed manner.

Pathways to ESG certification

There are a few steps to achieve and maintain ESG certification specifically designed for the Malaysian hospitality industry:

  • Engagement and commitment Hotels and resorts begin their journey towards ESG certification by participating in Basic ESG Training from SAIMATRIX INTERGRATED. This initial step introduces the requirements of certification and provides essential knowledge of ESG principles. By engaging in this training, establishments can better understand the expectations involved in pursuing the certification, allowing them to assess their level of commitment and readiness for the process.
  • Pre-assessment and gap analysis Following training, hotels and resorts undergo a pre-assessment and gap analysis conducted by SGS. This comprehensive process evaluates the establishment's current practices and performance against the established ESG framework, identifying areas needed for improvement.
  • Implementation Based on the findings of the gap analysis, SAIMATRIX INTERGRATED facilitates hotels and resorts to develop and implement action plans to address identified gaps and enhance their performance in key ESG areas. These action plans are tailored to the specific needs and priorities of each establishment, ensuring targeted and effective improvements.
  • Reporting Once the necessary improvements have been made, hotels and resorts undergo a rigorous certification audit conducted by SGS. This audit evaluates the establishment's adherence to the ESG framework and assesses its eligibility for certification.
  • ESG certification award Upon successful completion of the audit process and verification of compliance with ESG standards, hotels and resorts are awarded ESG certification. This prestigious certification serves as a testament to their dedication to sustainable practices and responsible tourism.
  • Certification renewals To maintain certification status, hotels and resorts undergo yearly renewals. This ensures that certified establishments continue to uphold ESG standards and remain committed to sustainability in the long term.

Our expertise in ESG

As the appointed certification body, SGS provides comprehensive services including GAP analysis, auditing and certification. Our rigorous standards and thorough evaluation processes ensure that hotels and resorts meet the highest levels of environmental, social and governance criteria. Our expertise in conducting detailed assessments and providing actionable feedback is critical in helping establishments achieve and maintain ESG compliance.

3 genius hacks to make hotel guests embrace sustainability on vacation.

  • Share to Facebook
  • Share to Twitter
  • Share to Linkedin

Holidays mean a 'license to sin'—sustainability becomes less of a priority.

We’ve all seen the signs in hotel rooms: ”Please consider reusing your towel to help us save the environment.”

”They simply don’t work,” says Professor Sara Dolnicar , a social scientist from the University of Queensland.

For the past decade she has tested ways to entice tourists into more sustainable behavior.

”Guests on vacation give themselves a ‘license to sin’: They’ve worked hard all year, separated their trash into the correct bins every day and remembered to turn off the lights each time they left the house,” she says. On holiday, they feel like they deserve a little break.

For a short period of time they prioritize their own comfort and indulgence over sustainability.

And while making people save energy at home is relatively straightforward—thanks to the direct impact on their energy bills—doing so in a hotel environment, where guests have no financial incentive, presents an entirely different challenge.

“If I can crack tourism, I can crack anything,” Dolnicar says. ”Especially luxury tourism, given the high expectations and attitudes of this market segment.”

The First Method: The Power of Peer Pressure

One proven approach to make guests act more sustainably is by leveraging social norms.

Studies show that peer pressure is particularly powerful and pervasive when it comes to eating: Our food intake is different when we are with others compared to when we eat alone.

After initial success, helldiver’s 2 has lost 90% of its players with no signs of recovery, microsoft windows deadline—you must update your pc by july 4.

“It’s why people tend to overfill their plates at a buffet. They think others are watching and judge them if they go back for more food multiple times,“ says Dolnicar.

Researchers shifted this notion in an experiment when they placed small signs on restaurant tables. They stated that returning to the buffet for seconds or thirds was very much appreciated—much more than piling food high.

This technique altered what was previously perceived to be embarrassing. Less excessively loaded plates led to a 21% reduction in food . Without preaching about the environment or food waste—just a straightforward correction of social norms.

Second Method: Nudging Guest’s Behavior

Another highly effective strategy to affect the way we behave is nudging, a concept popularized by behavioral economists and now embraced by governments worldwide.

Nudging involves subtle changes in how choices are presented, such as making sustainable options the default choice.

In one study, the simple act of reducing the size of plates at a buffet by three centimeters (slightly more than an inch) resulted in a 20% reduction in food waste. “It’s an infrastructure change. You don’t even need to communicate anything to the guests,” says Dolnicar.

Nudging can also significantly reduce room cleaning frequency. In a city-center hotel primarily serving business travelers, Dolnicar’s team changed the default from daily cleaning to no cleaning unless requested.

This change resulted in a remarkable 63% reduction in room cleaning, benefiting both the environment and the hotel's operational costs. Since this service constitutes a significant portion of a hotel's expenses, the reduction translates into substantial financial savings.

The Method With The Most Impact: Enjoyment

However, Dolnicar’s favorite approach—and the one she says holds the most promise—is linking sustainable behaviors to enjoyment: “Tourism is all about pleasure, so why not integrate fun eco-friendly actions into the vacation experience?“

Her team introduced a simple stamp collection game in a European family hotel. Families received a stamp for each meal where they finished all their food, with a prize awarded at checkout.

The result was a 38% reduction in food waste . “Kids went crazy for it,” she says, emphasizing that the focus was on enhancing enjoyment rather than addressing the benefits for the environment.

Dolnicar also has ideas how the enjoyment method can be applied to luxury hotel buffets. “An easy option would be small markers pointing out the healthiest food options.” Guidance, she says, makes consumers less likely to overfill plates.

Housekeeping is another area where the enjoyment method can save money and increase eco-friendly behavior, especially in luxury hotels. Since wealthy guests now place not just privacy but “ultra-privacy“ at the top of their priority lists, as Internova Travel Group has found, they are very receptive to initiatives like a default change in room cleaning.

In a field experiment Dolnicar and her team placed signs in hotel rooms, stating: “We value and respect your privacy, so we will not clean your room daily, but will happily do so upon your request.“ It’s a subtle communication of hedonic benefits: guests get freedom of choice, flexibility and well-deserved privacy.

Recommendations to Implement The Methods

Despite the clear benefits, Dolnicar says many hotels struggle to implement these strategies effectively. “Hotels often have very silly ideas,” she says, “I’ve seen hotels put table signs in 10-point font and half an essay written on them. Nobody is going to read that.“

Without a background in behavioral science, she says they might miss crucial details or introduce elements that backfire. This is why she emphasizes the importance of following proven solutions or consulting with experts.

“There are so many good solutions that have already been tested,” she says. The key is to understand the guests’ mindset and find interventions that align with their values and desires.

Whether hotels decide to use peer pressure, nudging, or enhancing pleasure, the path to eco-friendly tourism is to make it easy, make it enjoyable, and most importantly, make it feel natural.

Why it feels like everyone in the world is heading to Japan right now

Foreign tourists visit Tsukiji Outer Market in Tokyo on June 14.

Japan has never seen so many tourists flood into the country so quickly.

More than 14.5 million people arrived in the country in the first five months of this year, according to the Japan National Tourism Organization’s latest figures. That’s 70% up on the same period last year, and on track to beat 2019’s record 31 million visitors.

The island nation — popular among tourists for its dining, cleanliness and mix of futuristic and traditional experiences — currently feels more like a low-cost travel haven than one of the world’s most advanced economies, thanks to extraordinary currency exchange rates. The yen has been stuck at a three-decade low in recent months, making everything from an omakase sushi lunch to premium A5 wagyu steak much more affordable for foreign visitors.

Here are six ways to unpack Japan’s unprecedented travel boom.

Lasting momentum

Japan welcomed more than 3 million visitors for a third straight month in May, with the majority coming from South Korea, China and Taiwan. More than 1 million Americans made the long-haul trip from the U.S. in the first five months of the year — a 50% jump on the same period in 2019.

Tourist numbers from 19 markets — including all Group of Seven nations — this year broke their records for May. Chinese tourists have lagged their global counterparts since the beginning of the year, although the gap is closing. Japan has proved to be the top pick for Chinese tourists this summer.

Based on a Bloomberg Intelligence analysis, Japan is set to receive a record 34 million visitors this year, beating by a year a government target for exceeding 2019 visitor numbers. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has stuck by a longer-term goal of 60 million inbound visitors a year by 2030.

In contrast, a lack of overseas purchasing power has discouraged Japanese travelers, and the number heading abroad has still only reached about 60% of its pre-COVID-19 peak.

Spending surge

As the number of visitors increases, so too does the amount of cash they’re spending on their travels. The tourist dollar is going that much further thanks to the weak yen, which has slumped to the lowest level since 1986, and people haven’t been afraid of opening their wallets to snap up bargains from hotels and luxury goods to theme park trips.

Tourists spent a record ¥1.75 trillion in the first quarter of the year, and that figure is likely to surge as the number of Chinese visitors rises. They spend twice as much as the average tourist, according to the Japan Tourism Agency.

Hotel prices

Hotel prices in Japan are rising, but they’re still cheaper than their global peers.

The weak yen and the hugely popular cherry blossom season lifted national hotel prices to a near-three decade high in March. The average daily room rate was about ¥20,986 ($136), the highest level since 1997, according to CoStar Group

While Tokyo’s rate was higher, sitting at an average of $177 for the year ending March 2024, the city was a bargain compared to the likes of New York, where the average room cost more than $300 a night, or Singapore, where rates exceeded $250.

Flight demand

More tourists means more transport. Some 37 million flights are scheduled to take off globally this year, according to industry data compiled by BloombergNEF. And 1 million of those are expected to have landed in Japan by the end of 2024. That’s not been all good news for Japan, with the spiraling number of tourists putting a major strain on local transport and infrastructure.
