Muscat – Jumeirah Group, the luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, expands its international portfolio with the unveiling of its new resort Jumeirah Muscat Bay on Thursday.
Nestled within the secluded cove of Bandar Jissah between the Hajar mountains and Gulf of Oman, Jumeirah Muscat Bay will offer a true sense of serenity and escapism, a press release stated.
José Silva, CEO of Jumeirah Group, said, “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.
“We have brought this to life through design and architecture and in keeping with the hallmarks of Jumeirah Hotels and 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.”
Jumeirah Muscat Bay will offer 206 rooms and suites, with connecting rooms available for a family holiday. In addition, five secluded summerhouses in two- and four-bed configurations, and a Sanctuary Villa, will provide the ultimate hospitality experience, each with a private pool, dedicated butler service and access to an exclusive private beach.
Modern arabesque design features throughout the resort to ensure that Oman’s natural beauty takes centre stage, while its interiors elegantly blend traditional Omani craftmanship with light and modern hotel design.
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.
Talise Spa will make its debut in Oman with the opening of Jumeirah Muscat Bay. With eight individual and two couple treatment rooms, the sanctuary will offer a world of wellness and relaxation across a range of therapeutic and re-energising treatments that can be tailored to individual guest needs. Spread over two floors, there is also a hammam, sauna and steam room.
Those looking to immerse themselves in nature and embrace their adventurous side can take on the numerous hikes and scenic running and biking routes through the Hajar mountains to discover majestic views and lush wadis.
This new Jumeirah resort is situated in Muscat Bay, Oman’s fully integrated resort village – a picturesque natural haven offering all the modern conveniences and Omani-flavoured luxury hospitality.
