The Crowne Plaza Muscat sits on a headland overlooking the sea with fantastic views and its own personal beach. The gardens and pools are beautifully maintained and the terrace and pool bar provide an opportunity to sit out and enjoy the setting. The staff are welcoming and attentive and the rooms are well maintained and well furnished. The clientele seems... More

I am just back from the Crown Plaza in Muscat. The reception staff are most welcoming and extremely helpful.

Despite a slightly 'dated' feel on arrival it is a superb hotel. With the excellent views from the lovely terrace it has a feel of a Riviera hotel in the 60's. The terrace outside Dukes bar does need booking as very busy . A tip is that the hotel does not have an airport pick up service due to unreliability... More

Transfer only 10 Rials (£15) when arranged with the hotel. Nice warm welcome and friendly staff. Had a nice ground floor family room which was huge with access to the swimming pool (only problem was you couldn't close the door from the outside). Seats available outside the room if you wanted them, and good fro drying swim wear. Very nice... More

I attended a conference at Crowne Plaza Muscat a few days ago! The halls were huge and suitable for accommodating more than 70 participants, and that was only one hall of 4. The hotel is located by the beach (private beach), the food was delicious and staff were beyond helpful!

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
