Kempinski Hotel Muscat welcomes first guests to Oman

Kempinski Hotel Muscat has opened its doors to guests from around the world.

As a key part of Kempinski’s Middle Eastern growth strategy, the hotel aims to blend the brand’s timeless European elegance with Omani traditions and hospitality.

Spanning over six kilometres of coastline within the Al Mouj district of the Omani capital, the five-star hotel consists of 310 rooms and suites, state-of-the-art meeting facilities, ten 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.

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 sultan Qaboos.

The prominent location of the ballroom establishes a strong first impression, with an architectural design resembling Arabic lanterns, illuminated in the evening to reinforce the hotel as a landmark in the Al Mouj community.

“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,” said 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.”
