Iconic Sheraton Oman reopens after extensive refurb
Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has re-opened the doors to the iconic Sheraton Oman following a transformative renovation of its guestrooms, public spaces and food and beverage offerings.
Owned by Al Hashar Hotels LLC, under the umbrella of Al Hashar Group, and in association with Twenty14 Holdings, the 230-room hotel has been a landmark in Muscat for more than three decades.
“Sheraton Oman, the tallest building in the country, has played a key role in shaping the hospitality sector in Oman since it first started business in 1985,” said Sheikh Al Muhannad Al Hashar, speaking at the hotel re-opening ceremony.
“The hotel interior has been completely redesigned, leaving the exterior shell as it is. With this magnificent transformation, the hotel is well positioned not only to be a leader in the sector but also to support the efforts of the Ministry of Tourism in promoting the country’s tourism potential at the international level. Significantly, with the Sultanate all poised for a long-term, major growth in the MICE segment, Sheraton Oman’s enhanced conferencing facilities are sure to add great value to the future of tourism.”
Showcasing interiors with distinctive touches of Omani culture, all rooms are outfitted with the Sheraton brand’s signature amenities and services.
Since its opening in 1985, Sheraton Oman has had a history of bringing people together in the heart of Muscat with its imaginative and innovative range of dining experiences. Restoring the tradition of refined gastronomy, the hotel opens with Courtyard – the hotel’s all-day dining venue where guests can look forward to a return of the classic Seafood Night and Asado South American Steakhouse – serving the finest steaks and grills expertly paired with an international selection of beverages. The hotel will also feature Paired, Sheraton’s food and beverage program comprised of artisanal small plates and elevated bar snacks, served alongside suggested premium and local refreshments.
“The renovation of Sheraton Oman reflects the brand’s approach to an elevated and customised design and further reinforces Sheraton as a trusted voice in global travel,” said Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International. “Marriott International remains committed to setting new hospitality benchmarks in Oman and being a part of the country’s development. With a strong presence in the sultanate across three hotels, we are also on track to double our portfolio in the country with four new properties and more than 1,000 rooms set to open in the next five years.”
