You don’t really need an excuse to visit Muscat’s beautiful waterfront, but if you did, a new 1,800 sq m pool would certainly fit the bill.
This month W Hotels is launching its first hotel in Oman, and with it comes a number of restaurants, bars and amenities you’ll be dying to try out.
The new hotel, W Muscat, has 279 rooms and suites, each with wonderful views of the water from the Shatti Al-Qurum area of the capital.
WET (that's W Muscat’s new pool), could quickly become a hotspot for locals and tourists thanks to its beachfront location and bar.
If that’s not enough to draw you in, the hotel is set to open Siddharta Lounge by Buddha-Bar which features a rooftop infinity pool and swim-up bar, as well as other food and drink options.
They include CHAR, a grill house, Ba Ban, a Chinese restaurant, and Harvest, which will offer up healthy seasonal local food.
On top of all that, the hotel also boasts AWAY Spa, which comes with ten treatment rooms, a steam room, a hammam and a couples’ treatment room, as well as a fully equipped gym.
Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader at W Hotels Worldwide, said: “Muscat is a fascinating and exciting city. Its cultural DNA honours millennia of tradition while looking to what’s new and next - an ideal match for the W brand.
“The arrival of W in Muscat marks a new chapter for both the brand and this buzzing metropolis. The hotel reinterprets Omani design and cultural traditions to create a modern, energetic and stylish Escape unlike anything the sultanate has seen before.”
