The resort features a state-of-the-art Talise Spa, an array of signature dining experiences and a second hidden beach exclusive to a set of summerhouses and villas with private pools.

 

Breathtaking location

Picturesquely perched in front of the Gulf of Oman, Muscat is surrounded by striking mountains and the alluring hues of the desert. The capital city is home to an array of ancient clifftop landmarks, including the 16th-century Portuguese forts, Al Jalali and Mirani. It’s an ancient port city renowned for its marble-clad Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, with its 50m dome and exquisite Persian carpet, and the new National Museum, where you’ll find fascinating artefacts dating back to the prehistoric era. Jumeirah Muscat Bay is perfectly positioned just a short ride away from the city, while also well located for thrill-seekers keen for an adventure in Oman’s desert dunes or to hike across the surrounding mountainscape to capture unforgettable sunrise and sunset views across the region. Those simply looking to kick back and relax will enjoy retreating to the resort’s beautiful white-sand beach hidden.

Extraordinary design

Inspired by the beautiful landscape surrounding it, Jumeirah Muscat Bay is a peaceful sanctuary decorated with earthy shades and natural mountain stones. Clear architectural lines enhance the vista across the sea and large windows connect interior with exterior. The interiors feature subtle architectural details recalling Omani traditions and the colours, textures and patterns take their cue from local culture and customs, interpreted in a contemporary light. This is a place that celebrates Oman’s rich heritage, with beautiful craftwork from local artisans and a modern arabesque design that blends perfectly into this breathtaking location.
