The Detail

The Kempinski Muscat is distinctly Middle Eastern in design, with an opulent white marble lobby. This leads down to huge floor-to-ceiling windows looking out the sea. The sheer size and space is a sight to behold, and it becomes even more remarkable lit up at night. 

There are 310 rooms at the Kempinski Muscat. The rooms lead in with an ample 45 square metres in their Superior Rooms, which have partial sea views. They are decorated with deep maroon contrasting neutral cream touches. The Deluxe Rooms (either Resort or Sea View) then have private terraces or balconies. You can opt to upgrade to a Grand Deluxe Room (again Resort or Sea View). These offer a little more space and a small seating area. Family Rooms are great, with interconnecting rooms and have partial sea-views.  You have all the mod-cons from Nespresso machines, large flatscreen TVs, working desk, choice of pillows, and of course free WiFi. The en-suite marble-clad bathrooms come with a separate freestanding bathtub and walk-in shower. There is a range of superb suites.

You will find a multitude of dining and drinking options at the Kempinski Muscat. There are four restaurants in total. The Kitchen is a multi-cuisine restaurant and serves up European and Middle Eastern dishes, with live cooking stations. Cafe One is perfect for those with a sweet tooth and a love of fresh pastries. Bukhara is a specialty Indian restaurant. Soi Soi is a Thai street food restaurant. There are also a range of bars. Amwaj Lounge is great for afternoon tea, and also for an evening cocktail outside on the terrace. Zale Beach Club & Lounge is perfect for lunch.  If you are beside the pool, you can dip into the relaxed Pool Bar. Boulevard Tea House is a specialty Indian tea cafe.
