Global luxury hospitality company, and a member of Dubai Holding, Jumeirah Group is expanding its international portfolio in the Middle East, with the unveiling of its latest resort in Oman– Jumeirah Muscat Bay.
Nestled within the secluded cove of Bandar Jissah between the Hajar mountains and Gulf of Oman, just 15 minutes from the capital Muscat, Jumeirah Muscat Bay will offer a true sense of serenity and escapism. With sea, mountains and a historic city on its doorstep, it is the ideal spot to disconnect and spend one’s blissful days, says a press release by Jumeirah Group.
“Oman is a popular destination for those looking to combine nature and wellness with cultural interest. At Jumeirah Muscat Bay, we have focused on taking cues from the natural landscape and its restorative energy and have brought this to life through design and architecture and in keeping with the hallmarks of Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts, our innovative dining concepts, signature service and exceptional experiences are well represented throughout this resort. As we continue to expand our portfolio, we are delighted to open the doors to this beautiful resort and bring our brand promise of Stay Different, for the first time to Oman,” says José Silva, Chief Executive Officer of Jumeirah Group.
Jumeirah Muscat Bay will offer 206 spacious rooms and suites, all assuring breath taking ocean vistas, with connecting rooms available for a perfect family holiday. In addition, five secluded summerhouses in two- and four-bed configurations along with the exceptional Sanctuary Villa, will also be a part of the hotel, each with a private pool, dedicated butler service and access to an exclusive private beach.
With a focus on exceptional dining experiences, the new resort will be home to five diverse venues, overseen by Culinary Director Claudio Dieli, who brings over 26 years of experience in the global culinary industry, including tenures at several international hotels with three Michelin-stars, says Jumeirah Group.
Guests can delight in ocean side multi-cuisine restaurant Peridot, featuring interactive live cooking stations showcasing fresh and healthy favourites from all over the world, unwind over an indulgent afternoon tea in Tarini lounge, and enjoy tasty bites at chilled poolside eatery Zuka. As night falls, one can relish thirst-quenching signature global cocktails from master mixologists, Asian-style signature bites and an exquisite cigar selection at the intimate Anzo bar and terrace, boasting stunning views across the bay, says the hotel.
Set to open in September, signature restaurant Brezza will provide a cool, contemporary setting with the best views in Muscat, serving exquisite sharing-style seafood and stunning culinary creations from Chef de Cuisine Cristiano Goattin, an Italian-born chef with a Michelin-star background, alongside Jumeirah’s famous mixology, available in the restaurant and at the rooftop bar.
Jumeirah Group says that in celebration of its launch, the hotel is inviting guests to discover adventurous Oman in unsurpassed luxury with a special opening offer. Bookings made before September 30 will have an advantage of 20 pc off on room stays when staying for four nights or more, complimentary stay for one child up to 11 years, staying in the same room or suite, complimentary Kids Club access for junior guests and USD 100 worth of credits redeemable across the resort’s food & beverage and spa offerings.
