Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has celebrated the reopening of one of its most iconic hotels in the Middle East, following an extensive refurbishment project. Sheraton Oman in the capital Muscat is the tallest building in the country, with 14 storeys overlooking the city’s Ruwi business district.

The landmark hotel has 230 guest rooms, including 27 suites, and it is owned by Al Hashar Hotels. The renovation programme included upgraded accommodation, and refurbished public spaces and restaurants. Thomas van Opstal has been appointed as the General Manager of the hotel.

Alex Kyriakidis, the President and Managing Director of Middle East and Africa, Marriott International, owners of the Sheraton brand, stated:

“The renovation of Sheraton Oman reflects the brand’s approach to an elevated and customised design and further reinforces Sheraton as a trusted voice in global travel. Marriott International remains committed to setting new hospitality benchmarks in Oman and being a part of the country’s development. With a strong presence in the sultanate across three hotels, we are also on track to double our portfolio in the country with four new properties and over 1,000 rooms set to open in the next five years.”

The décor and furnishings of the guest rooms and suites feature touches of traditional Omani culture, as well as Sheraton’s signature amenities including the Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience. The renovation project included the addition of 28 new Sheraton Club rooms where guests will have access to the Sheraton Club Lounge with complimentary wireless Internet, breakfast, hors d’oeuvres, and premium drinks. There is also the Al Deyafa lounge which is dedicated to guests with early check-in’s and late check-outs.

Guests can access upscale facilities such as the modern Sheraton Fitness & Spa with Technogym equipment, an outdoor and indoor swimming pool, two Jacuzzis, a lavish spa with four treatment rooms, and a number of aerobic and Zumba classes in the Kinesis Studio. There will also be a separate gym for women, and exclusive pool access for women between 9 am to 12 pm from Monday to Thursday.

Dining options at the luxury hotel include the all-day Courtyard with its Seafood Night, and Asado South American Steakhouse. Sheraton Oman will also offer the Paired concept, where guests can enjoy artisanal small plates and bar snacks that are served with suggested premium and local beverages.
