Marriott Opens First W Hotel in Oman

Marriott has opened the first W hotel in Oman, the W Muscat.

Set against the stunning backdrop of the rugged Al Hajar Mountains, which form a stark contrast to the historic capital city’s lively waterfront, W Muscat sits at the intersection of the bustling Shatti Al Qurum area.

“Muscat is a fascinating and exciting city. Its cultural DNA honors millennia of tradition while looking to what’s new and next – an ideal match for the W brand,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. “The arrival of W in Muscat marks a new chapter for both the brand and this buzzing metropolis. The hotel reinterprets Omani design and cultural traditions to create a modern, energetic and stylish Escape unlike anything the sultanate has seen before.”

Welcoming guests upon arrival is a striking, nine-ton frankincense tree sculpture designed by Pongsatat Uaiklang. Standing at an impressive 10 meters tall, the piece is made of solid stainless steel, welded from 28 winding pieces. In traditional Omani culture, frankincense was used to bless and welcome weary travelers after their long journeys.

All of the 279 guestrooms and suites at W Muscat provide uninterrupted views of the glistening blue water, with their design drawing inspiration from the ocean as well as the asymmetrical lines of the nearby mountains, caves and desert.

An enormous 1800 sqm beachfront pool offers views of the Gulf of Oman and forms part of the W brand’s WET experience. Here, guests can swim, soak up the sun and enjoy signature beverages while listening to live DJ performances.

In addition to a variety of F&B outlets, the W Muscat also features an Away Spa, a gym, and an assortment of meeting and event spaces.
