Oman is a completely unique country, different from typical places in the Middle East.
If you are planning a trip unlike any other, we suggest you visit the oldest independent country in the Arab world where luxury hotel Jumeirah Muscat Bay has opened.
Located in the secluded Bandar Jissah Bay, between the Hajar Mountains and the Gulf of Oman, just 15 minutes from the capital city of Muscat, Jumeirah Muscat Bay offers a true sense of tranquillity and escape. With the sea, the mountains and the historic city on its doorstep, it is the ideal place to unwind from a busy lifestyle. The property offers the opportunity to relax on the beach, explore the wide-open spaces thanks to the many experiences on offer or discover the rich history of the Sultanate.
Jumeirah Muscat Bay comprises 206 spacious rooms and suites, all of which offer stunning ocean views. In addition, five secluded villas, with two or four beds, and the exquisite Sanctuary Villa, will provide a unique experience, each with a private pool, dedicated butler service and private beach access. Contemporary arabesque designs are found throughout the resort to showcase Oman's natural beauty.
The new hotel focuses on gastronomy and offers five different dining locations. The restaurants are managed by Claudio Dieli, who has more than 26 years of experience, especially in several international hotels that have been awarded three Michelin stars.
PERIDOT Restaurant, located next to the ocean, offers interactive cooking stations that showcase fresh and healthy dishes from around the world. Guests can relax with afternoon tea in the TARINI lounge, which offers a peaceful escape from the Arabian sun, or enjoy light meals in the poolside restaurant ZUKA. At dusk in the bar and on the terrace l'ANZO bartenders prepare delicious cocktails, as well as Asian dishes and a selection of cigars is offered, which can be enjoyed with a beautiful view of the bay. The BREZZA restaurant, which is scheduled to open in September, will offer a fresh and contemporary environment with the best views of Muscat. It will serve exquisite seafood and surprising culinary creations by Italian-born, Michelin-starred chef Cristiano Gaottin.
In continuity with the exceptional wellness offer, there is the Talise Spa. With eight individual treatment rooms and two rooms for couples, this true retreat will offer well-being and relaxation through a range of therapeutic, revitalizing and adaptive treatments. It is spread over two floors and will also offer a sauna and a hammam. Talise Spa will also offer local and sustainable brands with an added nod to Omani nature.
For adventurers who want to immerse themselves in nature, there are many hiking, running and biking trails in the Hajar Mountains, where they can discover magnificent views. Sunrise Beach, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, yoga studio, tennis court and a PADI-certified diving and water sports centre round out the facilities. Create unforgettable memories with activities such as diving, sailing and snorkelling with turtles. Parents will be especially delighted with the children's club, which offers children a daily program of activities in which children will be interested in nature, various adventures and sports.
