Pure tranquility, a short ride from the city, between the dramatic Al Hajar mountains and Gulf of Oman
Jumeirah Muscat Bay is expected to open in 2020.
Set in the secluded cove of Bandar Jissah between the Al Hajar Mountains and the Gulf of Oman, this exclusive resort is just 15 minutes south of Muscat city centre and 40 minutes from Seeb International Airport. A five-star retreat on the waterfront, this hotel is a refined arrangement of luxury among nature.
Experience celebration, escapism and indulgence in equal measure as you explore the finest that Jumeirah has to offer. Celebrate local culture and connect to the past in the ballroom inspired by Omani heritage; escape to the tranquillity of the underworld with qualified divemasters; and indulge in time for yourself while staying at one of their private cove villas.
There is a fitness and leisure centre, complete with tennis courts, for the more active guest, a kids’ club to entertain the younger residents and Jumeirah’s signature Talise spa to pamper and revitalise any visitor to Muscat Bay’s shores.
The resort’s excellent conference and banquet facilities also reflect Oman’s growing attraction as a destination for business as well as leisure. Active guests can enjoy the beautiful coastline through a dive centre as well as a range of other watersports. And whether you’re relaxing or exploring, the Kids Club will ensure your children also have fun and make new friends, thanks to an exciting daily activity programme.
Dip your toes into a boutique experience at a unique hotel inspired by local village architecture. Three levels of accommodation comprising 112 rooms are set into the hillside, each mirroring a different lifestyle known to the Omani people.
Jebel (mountain-living) is found on the top level, Bustan (oasis-living) in the middle and Shat’ee (beach-living) is closest to the sea. Every room clings to the mountain and offers uninterrupted views of the beach and out to sea.
Featuring the natural characteristics of indigenous settlements, the contrasting Jebel, Bustan and Shate’e environments are each a world of their own. The Mountain Village Jebel combines stone walls, earthy tones and mountain vegetation while Bustan links to the country’s cultivation with patchwork terraces of lush greenery. The Shate’e settlement is nearest the sea and emulates a fishing village, complete with beach atmosphere and lagoon. The archeological ruins that surround the hotel provide real connections to the story of Oman. Immerse yourself in variations of the local experience, the history and the hospitality amid uninterrupted views of Arabia’s Gulf.
An assortment of five-star amenities, including various gift shops, state-of-the-art fitness studio, business centre and executive lounge, offers hotel guests a full suite of services to ensure the perfect stay
