The Grand Hyatt has revolutionary architecture and decoration which will delight some but repel others. However, its setting, which blends neoclassical and Arabic influences, deserves at least one visit - and more should you be seduced.

    Location 7.0 /10

    On the seaside, in the embassy district, 11 miles from Muscat's city centre and 11 miles from the airport. Allow 20 minutes for the transfer.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    To have the greatest chance of getting a room with seaview, the Grand Hyatt is the place to stay. Indeed, 80% of the 280 rooms are oriented toward the beach. The others view the rear of the city and the mountains. The rooms are especially cosy and spacious (470 square feet) and are furnished in a neo-classical style which is reminiscent of some European palaces. A beautifully carved wooden chest and many pillows on the bed happily evoke the Arabic tradition. A special mention to the bathrooms lined with precious marble. They are equipped with a shower and a bath, a hair dryer, and a scale. Some kimono robes are available along with a nice basket of hospitality products. The remaining facilities provide great comfort: air conditioning, direct dial telephone, satellite television, minibar, safe, and a valet to put clothes on.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The Grand Hyatt, which was built in 1997, recalls the Hammamet Lella Baya because of its external architecture and the Royal Mirage in Dubai by its inner decoration. When you face the entry, you feel somewhat like being in front of an amusement park. The walls are covered with a coating evoking rows of cut stones and the top of the buildings are crenellated like all towers of Oman fortresses. Inside, one is dazzled by the gilded coffered ceiling, the marble staircases and the perspective achieved by the different levels. Those who dream of an Eastern environment where Alexander the Great may have lived will be fully satisfied. Other people will have the impression of an aesthetic overload even if the whole is organized with great symmetry. At the end of the lobby, a huge bay window opens onto the lagoon pool. It is without doubt one of the highlights of the hotel. It is spacious, decorated with an island of vegetation, has a waterfall and a "lazy river.", a river flow that anyone can get over without effort. Everything necessary for your relaxation is there: canvas sunshades, plastic deckchairs, mattresses, and towels. It is regrettable however that there is no lawn extending the paved solarium facing the sea.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    Resturant possibilities are numerous and varied. The fastest - and one of the most attractive - is the buffets that are prepared for all three meals down the lobby and on the terrace overlooking the pool. There is no room to speak of, just a space under a very high ceiling which will not please at all amateurs of intimate ambiance. But the dishes, either Arabic or Mediterranean, are there to compensate, for the greatest enjoyment of the eyes and the palate. If you want to have lunch a few meters from your deckchair, the restaurant by the pool offers an attractive setting under a pergola, but the cuisine - Asian or intercontinental - is a little disappointing. Finally, two à la carte restaurants serve Italian or Asian dishes in an intimate environment, whose decor nevertheless reminds one a little too much of an amusement park.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The beach the Grand Hyatt overlooks is the public beach of Muscat, which is very spacious (6 miles long and 328 feet wide) and little attended, except in the evenings and weekends. It is reached down through a small staircase and through the pedestrian alley that leads from the ambassy district to this of Qorum. IThere are no facilities on the beach but the hotel has created a space for relaxation with deckchairs and sunshades in an area surrounded by boxwood. Although low, these hurdles hamper the sight when lying down. So enjoy the pool deckchairs and only go to the beach for jogging or swimming. Warning, the depth is rather shallow. So it is necessary to go far enough to be able to swim with ease. For a charge, it is possible to do various water sports, including jet skiing, sailing, and windsurfing.

    To know

    The Grand Hyatt will suit those looking for an exotic hotel scenery because of its architectural bias. One must love marble and gilding to stay there comfortably, and those attracted by a heavy decor will enjoy as they should the excellent facilities offered by the hotel. The fitness and relaxation facilities offer high standards that people familiar with select sports clubs will appreciate. To quickly withdraw money, an ATM machine is available inside the building.
