Speaking on behalf of the Board of Directors of Gulf Hotel (Oman), Hannah Macki, said, “The tourism industry in Oman is set to grow substantially in the coming years. In preparation of that growth, we are looking at ways to be more competitive within the market by preserving the hotel’s traditional warmth, revamped with rich amenities. The newly renovated Crowne Plaza Muscat showcases our organisation’s commitment to develop the industry and deliver the highest quality of hospitality.”
As one of the first hotels in the city, Crowne Plaza Muscat has become an iconic representation of Oman’s world-renowned hospitality, according to Herve Corvest, area general manager at the hotel. “Today, following a successful 100-day renovation, we are ready for the next chapter of our journey. By combining upgraded facilities with our reputable services and amenities, we are confident that we will be able to better serve our guests and create even more memorable experiences for them to cherish,” he said at the reopening.
Crowne Plaza Muscat is welcoming guests with a new arrival experience including a porte-cochere which combines a touch of luxury while maintaining elements of Omani architecture. The new lobby extends to accommodate visitors looking for an afternoon retreat or a business meeting alike.
With views overlooking the Sea of Oman, patrons can have the best food and superior service in one of the hotel’s expanded restaurant terraces or at its suspended restaurant - The Edge. In addition to enhanced dining experiences, hotel guests can now also enjoy a dip in the double infinity pool overlooking the azure sea waters with panoramic views of the city.
A mix of business and leisure, the hotel comprises 200 rooms and suites, six award-winning international restaurants and lounges, six fully equipped meeting rooms, a 4,000sq m ballroom, a 24-hour fitness centre and a private beach.
