Now Open: Kempinski Hotel Muscat




Designed with a variety of local Omani influences, the Kempinski Hotel Muscat has opened its doors. Encompassing over 6 km of coastline within Al Mouj community, the 310 room and suite resort has a 1,100 square meter pillar-free ballroom that can accommodate up to 700 guests and can be divided into three sections. The diamond-shaped building also has 11 separate function rooms with natural daylight and equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment.

The new hotel also has 10 restaurants and bars, a fully equipped health club and a spa.

Designed by Woods Bagot, Kempinski Hotel Muscat aims to be a modern interpretation of Muscat and the Sultanate of Oman. The hotel’s buildings, with a façade inspired by the landscape of Old Muscat – such as the Muttrah Corniche – are a matrix of building structures, outlining what was once a commercial center. 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 His Majesty Sultan Qaboos. The prominent location of the ballroom – wherein the Muscat Ballroom is situated – establishes a strong first impression, with an architectural design inspired by Arabic lanterns, illuminated in the evening to reinforce the hotel as a landmark in the Al Mouj community.

In terms of dining, guests can experience live interactive cuisines at The Kitchen Restaurant or a Northern Indian experience at Bukhara Restaurant. The Pool Bar serves light snacks and meals during the day, while for fans of Thai street food, Soi Soi is the place to be. Boulevard Tea House serves authentic Indian teas in a cosy setting, and fresh coffee, dainty desserts and pastries can be found at Café One, the hotel’s deli. Amwaj Lounge, the hotel’s luxury living room, offers a selection of French pastries and afternoon tea.

Cigar aficionados can unwind in the 1897 Cigar Lounge & Bar, presenting a large collection of Cuban cigars and a wide selection of single malt. Zale, the hotel’s beach club and lounge, specializes in globally inspired cuisine, using seasonal ingredients and fresh local products. At night, this venue turns into a lounge. Cosmic Bowling is the only bowling and entertainment center in Al Mouj.

Swiss luxury wellness expert, Resense, leads the Kempinski The Spa & Health Club to offer guests experiences inspired by Omani wellness traditions. The spa has separate areas for men and women, as well as a couples’ suite with private heat and water experiences, a double treatment room, the latest technology in results-driven treatments, and an exclusive health club exclusively for hotel guests and selected members. The health club is a state-of-the-art gym complete with dedicated personal training and assessment room, a female only gym, fitness class studio and a juice bar.

Kempinski Hotel Muscat is in the Al Mouj community. In this waterfront community, guests will have access to retail and dining facilities at Boulevard, with a 400-dock marina as well as a signature PGA-standard 18-hole links-style course at Al Mouj Golf, minutes away from the airport.
