    Location 7.0 /10

    On the seaside, 9 miles from Muscat's city centre and 13 miles from the airport. Allow 20 minutes for the transfer.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The 265 rooms are spacious (410 square feet), comfortable, well equipped, and they have a balcony. 160 of them overlook the sea (front or side). The remaining have views over the city at the rear. Fitted with mahogany wood furniture, they have a sitting area and a beautiful bathroom with a bathtub, a hair dryer, bathrobes, and hospitality products. Other amenities include air conditioning, direct dial telephone, satellite television, a minibar, and a safe. A bottle of water is provided free of charge every day.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The Intercontinental hotel is a rectangular building with 6 floors and does not externally feature an original architecture. Inside, however, the lobby is lined with white marble that gives it a very bright look. A panoramic elevator lets one enjoy views of the lounges, the islands of vegetation and the central fountain as you go higher. Across gardens that extend to the beach, a lagoon pool was built, and another one too slightly in the back. The latter is semi-olympic and perfect for swimming laps. Relaxation areas lie by the lagoon pool on terraces covered with synthetic turf, or a little further away on the lawns. Deckchairs, mattresses, canvas sunshades and towels are provided.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The main restaurant offers buffets at meal times. Dishes of international inspiration also include some Middle Eastern specialties. The room has a shady terrace overlooking the pool. Every Friday, brunch is an appointment not to be missed. Other attractive options for la carte lunch and dinner: a Mexican and a Polynesian restaurants. During the day, tables set up under a pergola near the pool also allow to enjoy a salad, a hamburger, meat or grilled fish.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The hotel is separated from the beach by a pedestrian alley that runs from the embassy district to the cornice of Qorum. The beach is public, very large (6 miles long and 328 feet wide), pleasant and quiet but it does not have specific installations. Relatively shallow water allows the children to bathe safely. The adults will have to walk a little before finding enough water to swim. Regarding water sports, the hotel has some equipment that allows one to do sailing, windsurfing, and jet skiing (with a charge).

    To know

    Dating back to 1977, the Intercontinental was the first hotel to be built in Muscat. It was renovated in 1999 and offers a very decent level of comfort but it primarily remains a hotel for businessmen. The decoration is international and services offered are those of a large metropolis' hotel. However, they offer a wide variety of leisure facilities. The Intercontinental is an address to remember should you want to swim in a semi-olympic pool, play tennis, squash, or follow the latest trends in the fitness room equipped with high tech equipment during your stay in Muscat.

      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.
