Juliana Salla appointed as General Manager of JW Marriott Hotel Muscat

Muscat: JW Marriott Hotel Muscat is delighted to announce the appointment of Juliana Salla as its General Manager, responsible for overseeing the brand’s flagship hotel in Oman, which reopened its doors in October 2023.

With over 20 years of experience within the international tourism and hospitality sector in South America, North America, Europe, Middle East, Asia Pacific and China, Salla has worked with Marriott in a variety of positions for the company’s brands, including senior leadership roles at W owned properties in Qatar, Indonesia and China.

“I am honored to be taking on this leading role with such a prestigious, meticulously designed property. We aim to foster a serene sanctuary for business and leisure, or a seamless blend of both, for meaningful stays that feature the highest levels of attention to detail every step of the way,” said Juliana Salla, General Manager of JW Marriott Hotel Muscat.

“Despite their geographical distance, Oman and Brazil share a common appreciation for rich cultural diversity and natural beauty and Muscat is the perfect destination to experience JW Marriott’s serene sanctuary and make memorable connections. I am extremely happy to be here and excited to extend our extraordinary hospitality to all who join us.”

For six years before moving to Muscat, she took up integral positions at two Ritz-Carlton properties, in Bali from 2017 to 2020, then at Fari Islands, Maldives from 2020 to 2023.

Prior to those appointments, she honed her inspiring leadership skills for 10 years with the W brand, while playing a key role in the pre-opening of various W properties. Salla kick started her career with Disney Cruise Lines before gravitating to land-based hotel operations.

Underpinned by exceptional love of service and hospitality, JW Marriott Hotel Muscat features 304 luxurious, spacious guest rooms and suites featuring dramatic and unique interior design. A short drive from Muscat International Airport in the heart of Madinat Al-Irfan, it also boasts direct connectivity to the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre and offers business and leisure travelers a haven to escape from the hustle and bustle of urban living.

The hotel stands as a beacon of environmental sustainability, with its architectural excellence aligning with the stringent standards for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
