"We aim to offer a combination of local traditions inspired by Omani hospitality and world-class luxury to guests visiting the Sultanate, guaranteed to create unforgettable memories.

Designed by Woods Bagot, Kempinski Hotel Muscat is a modern interpretation of Muscat and the Sultanate of Oman, with standout elements that are truly Omani in nature.

The hotel's buildings, with a façade inspired by the landscape of Old Muscat – such as the Muttrah Corniche – are a matrix of building structures.

The design of the lobby originates from the nature of lilies in a pond, and is inspired by the Al Alam Palace, the ceremonial palace of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos. The Muscat Ballroom has an architectural design inspired by Arabic lanterns.

Kempinski Hotel Muscat comes as a dining destination where guests can experience live interactive cuisines at The Kitchen Restaurant or choose to indulge in a delightful Northern Indian experience at Bukhara Restaurant. For light snacks and meals during the day, the Pool Bar team takes care of each guest’s appetite, while relaxing and enjoying the sun. For fans of Thai street food, Soi Soi is the place to be; a lively restaurant reminiscent of Bangkok’s bustling street-food scene.

For authentic Indian teas, Boulevard Tea House provides that and more in a cosy setting. Fresh coffee, dainty desserts and pastries can be found at Café One, the hotel’s deli. Amwaj Lounge, the hotel’s luxury living room, sets the scene with a selection of French pastries and afternoon tea.
