Marriott has recently opened a JW Marriott-branded property in Muscat, Oman.
Located in the heart of Muscat’s new business hub, within the Sultanate’s largest urban development project Madinat Al-Irfan, the hotel is an integral part of the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) precinct. The property is directly linked to the OCEC, and also provides easy access to key city landmarks including Muscat Old Town, Royal Opera House, Old Souq and Mattrah Corniche.
This Marriott property offers 304 well-appointed guestrooms and suites, offering views of Oman’s wadis and natural valleys.
Guests checking-in to these rooms and suites are encouraged to participate in a series of daily rituals of five to ten minute of activity that enables them to be more aware, present, focused and inspired. Some of them are — 108 Steps, Words to Inspire and Your Best Day.
The F&B outlets include the all-day dining Kitchen 7 serving an interesting mix of International, Asian, middle eastern and Indian cuisines with an interactive show kitchen; Butter Buns, a gastropub offering detectable burgers; Pink Salt for grills and Tonika for creative beverages. Guests can also relax and enjoy the Mediterranean vibe and entertainment from sunrise to sunset at the property’s ‘Catch’ pool bar.
Catering to the MICE guests across the globe, the hotel houses 2,500 sqm of banqueting space — offering space and choice with two large ballrooms and six meeting rooms. JW Marriott Muscat invites business travellers to experience their ‘Events by JW’ service too.
Recreational facilities include Spa by JW, a fitness centre, three outdoor swimming pools, a floodlit tennis court and a multipurpose court for basketball, volleyball and badminton.
According to Mitzi Gaskins, vice president and global brand leader, JW Marriott, “The debut of JW Marriott in Muscat marks an exciting milestone for the brand in the middle east and Africa as we continue to grow our footprint and deliver an elevated and warm luxury experience.
“The hotel’s extensive offerings encourage guests to live in the present and pursue their best selves while immersing themselves in the culturally authentic experiences of this enchanting city.”
