The Hormuz Grand Hotel, Muscat becomes the latest addition to Carlson Rezidor’s Quorvus Collection, a new generation of expertly curated luxury hotels inspired by the lifestyle and sensibilities of the contemporary global traveler.
Ideally located in one of Oman’s most desirable areas, the Hormuz Grand is close to the major government and academic institutions, the best shopping and golf, just 4km away from Muscat International Airport and 20km away from the center of the capital city, Muscat.
Elegant and unassuming from the outside, the stunning interior is a blend of modern Asian and Middle Eastern design, with a decorative pool and water courtyard – both open to the stars – as a soothing centerpiece.
“Our phenomenal growth in the Middle East region is second to none. The addition of the Hormuz Grand Hotel, Muscat – part of our luxury brand Quorvus Collection – is showcasing the best of our Middle Eastern heritage and future ambitions,” said Mark Willis, Area Vice President, Middle East and Turkey, The Rezidor Hotel Group. “The Hormuz Grand Hotel, Muscat joins the meticulously designed Symphony Style Hotel Kuwait and G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh – giving us a solid platform to develop this collection of carefully selected properties further in the Middle East & Turkey.”
The 231 guest rooms at The Hormuz Grand Hotel, Muscat embody the understanding of modern function through inspired design, indulgent comfort and luxury touches to fully immerse guests in distinguished tranquility. And the excellent dining options make a memorable contribution to the superlative five-star hotel experience.
Straits offers international all-day dining with buffet style service at breakfast and lunch – followed by an outstanding la carte menu for dinner. With impressively high ceilings and marble pillars, Straits is stylishly airy, with a large indoor and alfresco seating area – overlooking the drama of the two open kitchens and water courtyard.
Serving specialty north Indian cuisine, Qureshi Bab-Al-Hind is located at the lobby level, with a richly textured design and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water courtyard: the theatre of the display kitchen is also visible through a glass wall.
Bringing a real buzz to the heart of the hotel, The Hub is a lobby level lounge serving tea, coffee, drinks and irresistible patisserie from the in-house bakery. And Oman’s coolest fun lovers now veer towards The Vault as the hottest place to relax and unwind, with top-ranking DJs at weekends, coverage of major sporting events and great food.
The hotel will soon add its third restaurant with seafood specialties. Its modern conference rooms features a 390 square meter ballroom, a pool, an outstanding spa managed by ISpa (Thailand) and a gym.
“We are delighted to bring the Hormuz Grand Hotel, Muscat into the Quorvus Collection, and introduce our own suite of hallmark and essential services tailored for the travelers looking for individual luxury,” said Chris Pike, General Manager of the Hormuz Grand Hotel, Muscat. “This hotel has a very distinct and priceless local identity. With our global network, we hope to attract world travelers to this magnificent property and showcase the wonderful treasure of the gulf.”
Launched in 2014, the Quorvus Collection unites individual and inspiring luxury properties offering distinguished experiences. Different in scale, architecture, ambiance and design, the portfolio aims to include historic landmarks, contemporary residences, classic boutiques and urban retreats. All hotels offer a range of essential services perfectly tailored to the guests’ needs. The signature “Q24” concept comprises six core lifestyle elements – wellness, replenishment and style encompassing the body; and inspiration, entertainment and connectivity to meet the needs of the mind.
