Avani Hotels & Resorts Makes Omani Debut with the Opening of Avani Muscat Hotel
Avani Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of Avani Muscat Hotel (www.avanihotels.com/muscat), the upbeat, contemporary brand’s first property in the Sultanate of Oman. Located in Seeb, a prime residential area at the heart of Muscat’s westward growth, the new property benefits from superb airport and city access, making it a convenient base for business travellers, digital nomads and leisure travellers alike.
“We are excited to kick off 2022 with the debut of the cool Avani brand in historical Oman, signifying Minor Hotels growth commitment in the Middle East,” said Amir Golbarg, Senior Vice President Operations of Minor Hotels – Middle East & Africa, the parent company of Avani Hotels & Resorts. “Avani Muscat Hotel is poised to hit the sweet spot and balance between the leisure and business travellers, with the property debuting in the upcoming CBD area of Seeb.”
Blending heritage-inspired touches and sleek contemporary style, the property’s 161 guest rooms are a masterclass in subtle design. Soothing yet stimulating environments, empathetic to the needs of today’s hyper-connected traveller, have been created with natural materials, bespoke décor and Omani tones. In response to global travellers’ evolving working behaviours, in-room workspaces feature flexible configuration options and easy access to the smart power panel outfitted with multiple plugs and USB ports.
On the residential side, 45 studios and one, two- and three-bedroom serviced apartments bring Avani’s fresh, forward-looking aesthetic to one of Muscat’s most dynamic neighbourhoods. At 128-square metres, the three-bedroom apartments are the largest in the inventory and are perfectly suited for long-stay guests and families with children who can take full advantage of AvaniKids, the hotel’s kids’ club and pool.
With impressive multifunctional events space, including a 720 square metre ballroom divisible by three, two large meeting rooms and a private majilis, Avani Muscat is well-positioned to become one of the city’s leading conference and event venues. International delegates can look forward to a seamless arrival experience when in the city for conferences, seminars, or training thanks to Muscat International Airport being only a 15-minute drive away. The spacious and stylish ballroom can also accommodate large-scale social celebrations, such as banquets and car launches, and boasts high ceilings, an outdoor pre-function area and plenty of parking.
As well as being one of Southeast Asia’s fastest-growing hotel brands, Avani Hotels and Resorts (www.avanihotels.com) is well-established in the Middle East, with three properties in Dubai in key tourist and business areas: upmarket Palm Jumeirah, historic Deira and Ibn Battuta on the city’s main Sheikh Zayed Road. The brand recently announced the further expansion of its footprint in the region into Bahrain with Avani Bilaj Al Jazayer Bahrain Resort scheduled for a 2024 opening.
