Illustrious JW Marriott Muscat now fully open

The highly anticipated JW Marriott Muscat is now officially open, gracing the heart of the capital city’s ultra-modern Madinat Al-Irfan – the Sultanate’s largest urban development project. 

The hospitality gem is an integral part of the prestigious Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) precinct, offering a direct link to the venue, as well as easy access to renowned city landmarks, including Muscat Old Town, the Royal Opera House, the Old Souq and Mattrah Corniche.

“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," Mitzi Gaskins, vice president and global brand leader, JW Marriott, enthused. "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."

Designed with its guests’ best interest in mind, JW Marriott Muscat is an authentic representation of JW Marriott's mission to provide enriching experiences that enable guests to live with intent. The hotel features 304 stunning guest rooms and suites, many of them offering views of Oman's wadis – spectacular natural valleys flowing with water. With 2,500m2 of banqueting space flooded with natural daylight and equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology, the new property is a MICE haven for artfully choreographed meetings and events. 

Meanwhile, Oman's rich local produce is at the heart of JW Marriott Muscat's food and beverage philosophy, with five restaurants and lounges to ensure the culinary experiences at the hotel fulfil every taste and desire. The all-day dining found at Kitchen 7 offers a tasteful selection of international buffets, Asian woks, Middle Eastern grills and Indian tandoors with an interactive show kitchen. Fire cooking lovers can enjoy sophisticated grills with a sparkling flair at Pink Salt; nature and the crafts of a botanist inspire the refreshing and creative beverages at Tonika; while Butter Buns gastropub houses the city's best burgers, creating exceptional flavours. Guests can also relax and enjoy the Mediterranean vibe and entertainment from sunrise to sunset at the property's CATCH pool bar.

Moving on, a rejuvenating Spa by JW offers signature treatments to soothe mind, body and soul, as well as sauna and steam room facilities. Additional leisure facilities include a state-of-the-art fitness centre, three outdoor swimming pools, a floodlit tennis court and a multipurpose court for basketball, volleyball and badminton.
