Oman’s first JW Mar­riott ho­tel opens; to boost MICE of­fer­ing

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Oman Tourism De­vel­op­ment Com­pany (Om­ran Group) on Wed­nes­day an­nounced the soft open­ing of JW Mar­riott Muscat.

This an­nounce­ment marks the open­ing of the sul­tanate’s first JW Mar­riott ho­tel and the sec­ond ho­tel within the Oman Con­ven­tion & Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre (OCEC) precinct at Mad­i­nat al Ir­fan.

JW Mar­riott Muscat is the lat­est ad­di­tion to Om­ran’s ho­tel port­fo­lio which aims to boost the sul­tanate’s MICE (meet­ings, in­cen­tives, con­fer­ences and ex­hi­bi­tions) of­fer­ing as well as play an in­te­gral role in at­tract­ing both busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers to Oman.

Lo­cated in the heart of Muscat’s new busi­ness hub and de­signed as a busi­ness ho­tel with five-star fa­cil­i­ties, the ho­tel will be an in­te­gral part of the pres­ti­gious OCEC precinct.

Peter Walich­nowski, CEO of Om­ran said, “The open­ing of JW Mar­riott Muscat will add an­other di­men­sion to OCEC and the wider Mad­i­nat al Ir­fan de­vel­op­ment which are cen­tral to the Omani gov­ern­ment’s strat­egy to di­ver­sify the na­tional econ­omy.

“Hav­ing a mix of ho­tels in such ideal lo­ca­tion is in­te­gral not only to de­vel­op­ing Oman’s busi­ness tourism of­fer­ings but it also pro­vides the per­fect fo­rum to sup­port de­vel­op­ing the lo­cal mar­ket and cre­at­ing new sus­tain­able job op­por­tu­ni­ties for Oma­nis in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try.”

JW Mar­riott Muscat has 304 rooms and suites in­clud­ing a pres­i­den­tial suite. Five restau­rants and lounges en­sure the culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ences at the ho­tel ful­fill ev­ery taste and de­sire. With 2,500sq m of ban­quet­ing space flooded with nat­u­ral day­light and equipped with the lat­est state-of-the-art tech­nolo­gies, JW Mar­riott Muscat will be the per­fect place to host events. Whether it is a small board meet­ing, a large con­fer­ence, a cock­tail party or a wed­ding, the ho­tel of­fers space and choice with two large ball­rooms and six meet­ing rooms. Leisure fa­cil­i­ties will in­clude a state-of-the-art fit­ness cen­tre, a spa, sauna and steam fa­cil­i­ties as well as a pool.

“We look for­ward to wel­com­ing do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional trav­ellers to this unique prop­erty. Guests at JW Mar­riott Muscat will be able to im­merse them­selves in the cul­tur­ally gen­uine ex­pe­ri­ences the en­chant­ing city has to of­fer, whilst hav­ing the com­fort to pur­sue their best selves,” said Giuseppe Ressa, gen­eral man­ager, JW Mar­riott Muscat.
