“Great Experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

This property fulfills all the requirements of a 5 star. Well decorated lobby, good number of dining outlets, spacious pool area, private beach, banquet halls, disco & above all spacious & well equipped rooms. The rooms facing the pool area are really nice as you can watch the hustle bustle of the pool side & enjoy the beach view at the same time. If you stroll down the lane parallel to the beach, there is a nice seaside cafe a few metres away from the hotel.

Few things that could have been better : Firstly, the restaurants as i mentioned were good in number but i wish the variety in buffet could have been a bit more. I think in the buffet breakfast indian recipies need to be worked on seriously. Secondly, which 5 star hotel charges for wifi? Atleast the places i have stayed, they dont! I feel it should have been complementary.

Room Tip: Choose a pool facing room on the higher level so you can enjoy the pool view as well as the beach vi...

I only stayed 1 night but I have to say that the hotel left a good impression although I thought that it was pricey. The place is tastefully decorated and the staff are very helpful. Rooms are big, finding them can be an issue as the elevators are well hidden but that be more to do with my directional sense! From a business point of view it proved excellent as a meeting place and definitely sets the right impression. So in summary. Not sure that I would take my wife there for a weekend but for sure I will stay there the next time I'm in Muscat on business.

I think this hotel has improved in the last year. It is one of the top three resort Hotels in Muscat, and the only one in the central part of the city.

Facilities are top notch and staff has very low turnover that has helped their year over year improvement.

Unfortunately, this is not the place for a right budget. The service and facilities are top shelf, and the rates are too.

Massive rooms which are well kitted out. You could fit a table tennis table in mine. (Didn't try though) The entrance and ambience is true middle east ghastly. ie. I think we have missed a bit of wall that is not gold or bling bling. Breakfast was pretty awful I must be honest, and there were more flies in the atrium than at a Karratha barbeque. Pool area is nice. Had room service which was punctual at 2.00am. 120 rials corporate rate. Client paying so fine with me, otherwise I would go somewhere else.

We spent a long weekend break in Muscat at the Grand Hyatt over a national holiday. The hotel is great for holidaymakers, but it is pricey, both for the room and any food. We stayed with friends and checked in at the appointed hour of 3pm but were told that our room was not ready. After a bit of a song and a dance from the receptionist trying to get us to pay for an upgrade he said that he had found us a room, but unfortunately it was at the opposite end of the hotel to our friends, which was an inconvenience. The room was OK, but no different to other rooms in 4 or 5* hotels. We did not eat breakfast in the hotel as it was too expensive, preferring to go out to Starbucks which was on the beach road about 10 minutes drive away (lovely location - recommended). The Grand Hyatt is located in the Embassy district, and is a good drive out of the main centre, so if you want to be in the centre of the action this is not for you. We had a car so could drive, and as it was a dry weekend because of the holiday we did not mind driving. Taxis are reasonable, so you could get to the centre without spending a fortune. We did have a problem with noise in our room, but the hotel manager did look after us in this regard, so we would return, but would request a pool view room next time. Gym is well equipped, and open all reasonable hours. We wanted to eat in one of the on-site restaurants one evening, but it rained, and as the restaurant was outdoors we were unable to do so,so went off site to Trader Vics in the Intercontinental.
Car parking was good and close to our room (we overlooked the car park). Pool are is great and of a high standard.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt for 5 nights for Eid and had a wonderful relaxing time. We stayed there last year and enjoyed it so much we decided to come again. We had a club room again facing the beach and it was wonderful. The rooms are spacious and the bed is very comfortable. I would recommend the club facilities as the food served in the evening is actually a buffet and you get complimentary cocktails from 6-8pm also the breakfast served there which is included is very good. Every night the buffet has a different theme and is very well presented and delicious. The only downside was that 2 nights out of our 5 there was no alcohol served in the lounge as it was Eid, so we missed out. The beach is lovely and you can walk for miles and the weather was perfect. The lawned area is very nice for sunbathing and is quieter as most of the children seem to be by the pool. The restaurant by the pool serves excellent food, if you feel hungry while you are sunbathing, so you don't need to go far, I would recommend the Nasi Goring. All the staff are very friendly and some even remembered us from last year, so they make you feel special. We would definitely stay here again as it is a great place to chill out.

Room Tip: Book a club room it is worth the cost for the extras included.
