This upscale 225 room modern urban hotel is located on a very compact undeveloped site with views of the Al Hajar Mountains in a district of the City of Muscat, in the Sultanate of Oman. The district is rapidly emerging as a significant modern business, recreational and entertainment hub incorporating the new Mall of Oman and the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex. Water is at the center of the hotel experience with the traditional Omani oasis and wadi becoming the inspiration for the hotel design, creating a secluded, relaxing retreat in the urban setting.
The hotel is envisioned to appeal to a wide guest base with 3 restaurants, 13,000 sf of conference facilities including an 8,000 sf ballroom, and a rooftop pool. A principal design objective is to maximize the number of guestrooms with views of the mountains.
