The hotel has easy access to important city landmarks including Muscat Old Town, Royal Opera House, Old Souq and Mattrah Corniche.

JW Marriot vice president & global brand leader Mitzi Gaskins said: “The debut of JW Marriott in Muscat marks an exciting milestone for the brand in the Middle East and Africa as we continue to grow our footprint and deliver an elevated and warm luxury experience.

“The hotel’s extensive offerings encourage guests to live in the present and pursue their best selves while immersing themselves in the culturally authentic experiences of this enchanting city.”

Many of JW Marriott Muscat’s guest rooms and suites provide views of Oman’s natural valleys flowing with water.

The hotel offers two large ballrooms and six meeting rooms. Linked to the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) precinct, JW Marriott Muscat offers business travellers the benefit of ‘Events by JW’ service, including multi-lingual event planners and customised menus.
