“Luxury on the beach”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

A stunning and individual hotel in terms of design Like a horseshoe opening up onto gardens and large pool area that then leads down to miles of sandy beach (every inch of which is filled by makeshift football pitches and not so impromptu matches by evening. The rooms are large but make sure you get one facing into the pool and garden area. It is I suspect predominantly occupied by business people (and prices which are high anyway in Oman, match the clientele) but makes a fine destination note for the tourist. There is WiFi though out (just upgraded at about £6/day extra - always an irritation and hence VG rather than excellent rating. Excellent food in a variety of restaurants. It does not have a personal feel - for that the much more elegant and less brash Chedi up the road would be the place to stay.

I stayed for a few nights at the Grand Hyatt in Muscat and I must make clear that the place could well be a scene from 1001 nights: grand design with oriental decorations and ornaments, and a reception area worthy of a palace. The hotel is in a push district of Muscat and is occupies a huge seafront area.
The pool area is fantastic, and the breakfast was very good, what more if you have it on the pool and garden side you are in for a treat- I woke up earlier than usual just to indulge on the sun light, my coffee and the serene atmosphere.
There is a workout area and several restaurants: one thing now, when you travel to Muscat and you stay at one of its top hotels, do not count the money, because this hotel is expensive and so are the services and the restaurants here.
I tried all the restaurants and was happy with the quality of the food, however the service in the Italian restaurant left a lot to be desired- stressed out staff that occasionally vented unpleasant vibes at customers.
The outdoors restaurant adjacent to the night club is very good and has a very nice atmosphere- strongly recommended. I recommend the bar actually as well.
The glitches I mention in my headline are : lack of wifi (except for in certain areas of the hotel), and the room I was in was really far from the main hotel area, and happened to be on the garden/pool level with a door that opened to an almost open area outside the hotel premise. I know that Muscat is a very safe city, but at the beginning I found the idea uncomfortable.
The service is good, but not "wow", and every once and now you will get an unfriendly receptionist, but in general the staff is nice.

A completely breathtaking resort. The reception staff were so very friendly and when we presented our TripAdvisor coupon for a free upgrade, we were upgraded from a room with a view, to a club room with a completely unobstructed view of the gulf. The staff were so kind, everyone knew our names.

Our upgraded room was phenomenal! A very large, spacious room, with an espresso machine, fresh fruit, and a lot of water. The Club Access was also great because it came with breakfast in the morning, tea/coffee throughout the day, and drinks and appetizers at night. The pool area was lovely. The beach was very easily accessible. The hotel is about a 20 minute taxi ride to the airport and the staff always asked if we had enough cash with us.

The attention to detail from the staff is what I found made the experience memorable. Though it is pricey, it is worth every penny if you plan on spending time in the resort.

Very comfortable hotel with large rooms, great bed and showers, and attentive service. 24h gym and pool are great. Only downsides are the rip-off prices of the hotel coffee shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms on the outside of the two wings (i.e. those not facing the pool or the sea) particul...
