Spanning over 6km of coastline within the Al Mouj district of the Omani capital, this new five-star hotel consists of 310 rooms and suites, state-of-the-art meeting facilities, 10 world-class restaurants and bars, a fully equipped health club and an authentic Middle Eastern spa.

Designed by Woods Bagot, Kempinski Hotel Muscat is a modern interpretation of the country, with stand-out elements that are truly Omani in nature.

The façade of the hotel’s buildings is inspired by the landscape of Old Muscat, while the design of the lobby originates from the nature of lilies in a pond, and is inspired by the Al Alam Palace, the ceremonial palace of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos.

In terms of F&B, guests can enjoy live interactive cuisines at The Kitchen Restaurant or choose to indulge in a Northern Indian experience at Bukhara Restaurant. For fans of Thai food, Soi Soi is a lively restaurant reminiscent of Bangkok’s bustling street-food scene, while Amwaj Lounge – the hotel’s luxury living room – serves up a selection of French pastries and afternoon tea. 

Cigar aficionados can unwind in the opulent 1897 Cigar Lounge & Bar, and Zale – the hotel’s beach club and lounge – marks an exciting addition to Muscat’s nightlife scene.

Swiss luxury wellness expert Resense are behind The Spa & Health Club; a bespoke spa offering for Kempinski with treatment suites, a lavish couples’ suite with private heat and water experiences, the latest cosmeceutical technology, a state-of-the-art gym and a juice bar.

There are also dedicated men’s and women’s areas, with a skilled barber on hand for gentlemen and a sauna, steam and hydrotherapy pool for ladies.

“Being the latest hotel addition in the new heart of Muscat, it gives me great pleasure to introduce this brand-new hotel to our discerning guests, who are eager to experience the remarkable European flair of Kempinski and join us on this journey”, says Carsten Wiegandt, general manager of Kempinski Hotel Muscat.

“We aim to offer a combination of local traditions inspired by Omani hospitality and world-class luxury to guests visiting the Sultanate, guaranteed to create unforgettable memories. Oman’s rich culture and diverse landscape places the country as a must-visit destination for tourists. The expansive beaches, green valleys, caves, scenic mountain ranges, traditional markets, and architecture of numerous historical monuments are major attractions for tourists from around the world.”
