New experiences: Luxury hospitality leader continues international expansion with announcement of new property
MUSCAT, JUNE 29
Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, further expands its international portfolio with the unveiling of an exceptional new resort in the Middle East — Jumeirah Muscat Bay.
Nestled within the secluded cove of Bandar Jissah between the Hajar mountains and Sea 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 blissful days on the beach, explore the great outdoors via an array of adventurous well-being experiences, or venture out to discover the Sultanate of Oman’s rich history.
José Silva, Chief Executive Officer 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 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.”
Jumeirah Muscat Bay will offer 206 spacious rooms and suites, all assuring breath-taking ocean vistas, with connecting rooms available for the perfect family holiday. In addition, five secluded summerhouses in two-and four-bed configurations, and the exceptional 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.
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, offering a tranquil escape from the Omani sun, or refuel, refresh and while the day away with tasty bites at chilled poolside eatery ZUKA.
As night falls, enjoy 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. 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.
