A great hotel both in terms of location and quality of rooms/service. This has to be one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in. Reception staff were warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Food was great, service also. Rooms were nice and quiet and what a view you have if looking out to sea! Beach and... More

I've always loved Duke's Bar, but the service from the manager definitely goes above and beyond. You get the view, the food and then a little extra special treatment. Seems nothing is too much trouble - at least to try. Last night went and sat outside (in 40 degree heat). We asked the manager if it was possible to get... More

I've stayed here a few times on business and seen the development of the Crowne Plaza. Situated on top of the cliffs looking back towards Muscat, the sea of Oman and the beach provide the backdrop to the most spectacular sunsets I have ever witnessed. Simply stunning - take pictures and you will revisit them and show them to your... More

Visiting Muscat for the very first time, my experience at this hotel and country was extremely positive. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and cooperative.

Lovely hotel in a quiet relaxed country, slightly dated but in line with where the country is going, reallly beginning to modernise everything. Good service. Nice pool area and beach access is at the bottom of the cliff.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Check into an elegant seaside hotel in Oman's thriving capital with a private beach and easy access to local businesses. The dazzling Crowne Plaza(R) Muscat hotel looks out across the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Oman from a lush clifftop in fashionable Qurum Heights. With a panoramic terrace, pool and private beach, the hotel is just a 20-minute drive from Muscat International Airport and steps from Qurum Beach with its café-lined promenade. Oman's main business and ministerial districts are 10 minutes away. Families and couples can sunbathe on the private beach and swim in a pool set in leafy gardens alive with bougainvillea and date palms. After exploring ancient Muttrah Souq and Corniche, you can savor a cool drink in our English-style Dukes Bar as the sun dips into the Gulf. For dinner, how about Italian, Persian, or lavish buffets on the terrace of Tropicana with stunning sea views? Business travelers enjoy the hotel's relaxed vibe and convenient services such as complimentary Wi-Fi and parking, 24-hour room service and a Concierge who can pre-arrange taxi fares. After work, you can re-energize in the Cliff Club Fitness Center, challenge colleagues to a game of tennis or squash and de-stress in the sauna or steam room with our compliments. With 200 stylish rooms and a convenient, prestigious location in Oman, you'll find Crowne Plaza Muscat an ideal hotel for productive business and enjoyable leisure time. ... more   less
