Sundus Rotana: Where work meets pleasure in perfect harmony

The idea of spending a weekend in a business hotel right in the heart of the city might not sound appealing if relaxation and rejuvenation is in your mind. After all spending a day or two at a hotel should be filled with indulgence, and a business hotel might not offer that opulence and grandeur. But exceptions are always there and Sundus Rotana in Muscat is one such place where rejuvenation meets business in perfect harmony.

Located few minutes’ drive from Muscat International Airport and the new Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre, this new hotel in town is full of pleasant surprises. While it’s busy like any other business hotel and always buzzing with activities, at the same time it’s gorgeous too, and can be a perfect abode for your weekend stay.

As soon as I walked inside the nice, bright room, my day was made and I looked forward to my stay.

At Sundus there are 215 rooms and suites that are spacious and have contemporary furnishings with a stylish décor. They also have modern amenities and the latest technology to ensure that the guests feel at home. The Club Rotana rooms on the 5th floor offer several additional personalised services and benefits, such as access to the executive lounge where one can chill to the hilt.
I was totally fascinated with the turnaround TV in my room, where I could watch the television while sipping coffee on the sofa or while lazing on the bed.

Lunch was beckoning at Ginger Restaurant where I ate lemon and rosemary-rubbed chicken and Laham Maqlay, along with an array of sumptuous delights. We finished the hearty lunch by sipping some Kyoto coffee, a speciality, at the Lobby lounge.

The long leisurely lunch was followed by a tour of the hotel. The hotel has six conference rooms that have state-of-the-art facilities, with the latest audio-visual technology to meet the requirements of today’s modern executives, and an elegant Diwan ballroom for about 350 people, used for weddings, banquets or parties.

There is also a new signature restaurant called Teatro, with an open kitchen that serves different cuisines and have a sushi bar too.

The Bodyline Fitness and Wellness Club is good for a quick workout, and the swimming pool and steam rooms are the perfect places to unwind and relax after a tiresome day.
Later in the evening we were back at the Ginger Restaurant for dinner where I had grilled jumbo prawns, marinated with herbs and a rib-eye steak. I rounded off the dinner with some Chemax coffee, while relaxing in the lounge.

The breakfast, as expected, was a huge spread with a lot of live counters, from eggs, to grilled meats, to cereals, fruits, waffles and a whole lot of other food.
So this weekend treat yourself to some luxury, right here in Muscat. — [email protected]
