Starting on the 15th of September, the W Muscat participated in the Marriott International Wellness Week initiative alongside sister properties Al Bustan Palace Ritz Carlton and Sheraton Oman.
This Wellness Week truly highlighted W Muscat’s mission to promote and encapsulate Physical, Social, Environmental and Emotional Wellbeing within Muscat through the pulse of the hotel. This dedicated week was open and complimentary to both in-house guests and residents of Muscat to enjoy a holistic wellness experience focusing on Mind, Body and Soul.
The Wellness Week kicked off on Friday 15th of September with Aqua Aerobics at the picturesque 6th floor Infinity Pool at Siddharta Lounge by Buddha Bar which boasted panoramic sea views, fun music and a good workout. Following this participants were all treated to healthy detox shots and scrumptious breakfast canapes.The hotel's AWAY Spa then treated us all to a refreshing express facial to refresh and hydrate our skin after working out in the sun!
The next day cranked up the heat as guests and fitness enthusiasts alike participated in a more intense Extreme HIIT workout. After the rigorous workout, everyone cooled off with some refreshing homemade fruit sorbet on the lawn while one of the guests, who was a personal trainer, was surprised with a personalized gym themed cake for her birthday!
Sunset Yoga was the perfect way to end a Sunday. The instructor led us through a mind, body and soul enhancing practice against the stunning sunset backdrop of Qurum Beach. We finished off the relaxing session with some zen smoothies by the lit up poolside of WET Deck whilst they surprised one of the guests for their birthday!
The final day of W Muscat’s Wellness Week culminated in the green initiative of Planting in the Garden. Together, we broke soil and planted lemon tree saplings to symbolize our dedication and promise to sustainability. We then sipped on our protein filled date smoothies and pineapple mint refreshers.
W Muscat’s Wellness Week was W Muscat’s unequivocal announcement to the world that wellbeing will be and is an integral part of the hotel’s culture and everything they do.
