Marriott International has officially opened its second W hotel in the Middle East this year. The W Muscat is the brand's latest beachfront property in Oman. 

“Muscat is a fascinating and exciting city. Its cultural DNA honors millennia of tradition while looking to what’s new and next—an ideal match for the W brand,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, W Hotels Worldwide. “The arrival of W in Muscat marks a new chapter for both the brand and this buzzing metropolis.”

The hotel has 279 guestrooms and suites. Public spaces include a 1,800-square-meter beachfront pool; a spa with 10 treatment rooms, a steam room, a hammam and a couples’ treatment room, a gym, and several dining options, including the Siddharta Lounge By Buddha-Bar, Harvest, the Char grill house and the Ba Ban Chinese restaurant.
