Buyer: Marriott International have announced the opening of JW Marriott Muscat. 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 prestigious Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) precinct.
JW Marriott Muscat features 304 guest rooms and suites that offer spectacular views of its natural surroundings. The hotel includes 2,500 square meters of banqueting space flooded with natural daylight and equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology to host meetings and events.
Directly linked to the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) precinct, the hotel houses the largest executive lounge in the country and is the first hotel to have an exclusive lounge for airline crew.
Oman’s rich local produce is at the heart of JW Marriott Muscat’s food and beverage philosophy, which is evident at its five restaurants and lounges. The all-day dining found at Kitchen 7 offers international buffets, Asian woks, Middle Eastern grills and Indian tandoors with an interactive show kitchen. Guests can enjoy grills at Pink Salt; nature and refreshing and creative beverages at Tonika; while Butter Buns gastropub houses the city’s best burgers, creating exceptional flavors.
A rejuvenating Spa by JW, offers signature treatments organised by four distinct benefits – renewal, calmness, invigoration and indulgence – 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.
“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,” said Mitzi Gaskins, Vice President & Global Brand Leader, JW Marriott.
Besides, the hotel guests can participate in a series of daily rituals that help transport them into a refuge of calm; each of which includes a five to 10-minute activity that enables them to be more aware, present, focused and inspired:
• The ‘108 Steps’ ritual brings people together by encouraging guests to walk in a circle clockwise, silently counting their steps to the number 108 to cultivate mental discipline and as a gesture of respect for the natural flow of life
• The ‘Words to Inspire’ ritual invites guests to choose words from a bowl and envision themselves being an embodiment of the word, leaving them feeling positive and inspired
• ‘Your Best Day’ ritual is about visualisation of what is important to each guest and built around self-acknowledgment.
THPT Comment: Nice well-being added facility at this new JW Marriott hotel, maybe to work-off the burgers in the gastropub!
