(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Muscat- The modern urban resort Kempinski Hotel Muscat celebrated its one-year anniversary in 2019, hosting members of the press in a warm gathering at Amwaj Lounge, the hotel's lobby lounge, followed by an Irish-themed brunch at the all-day-dining restaurant, The Kitchen.
In light of the hotel's milestone, Carsten Wiegandt, general manager of Kempinski Hotel Muscat, said, 'We opened our doors in March 2018, and have come a long way this past year, from welcoming our first guests and restaurant patrons, to the first events and weddings. We continuously aim to provide our guests with a blend of Omani hospitality and timeless European elegance.'
Designed with a variety of local Omani influences, Kempinski Hotel Muscat opened its doors in March 2018 to guests from around the world as well as the surrounding community. Encompassing over 6km of stunning coastline within Al Mouj Muscat, this unparalleled luxury destination in the capital of Oman blends traditional Omani hospitality with the timeless European elegance of Kempinski. With 310 rooms and suites, 77 beachfront apartments and villas, state-of-the-art meeting facilities, ten authentic restaurants and lounges, a fully equipped health club and a luxury spa experience, Kempinski Hotel Muscat is a gateway to an authentic Omani adventure.
Designed by Woods Bagot, Kempinski Hotel Muscat is a modern interpretation of Muscat and the Sultanate of Oman, with stand-out elements that are truly Omani in nature. The hotel's buildings, with a façade inspired by the landscape of Old Muscat – such as the Muttrah Corniche – are a matrix of building structures, outlining what was once a commercial centre. The design of the lobby originates from the nature of lilies in a pond.
