the grand hyatt muscat is absolutly amazing. the atmosphere is very impressive.
overall it was a very comfortable and relaxing stay, even while having meetings. as there are a lot of events and lunch parties taken place, the hotel is always very busy and maybe not very suitable to have a rest. the pool area is most of the time having shadow, at about 4pm the whole pool area doens´t has any more sun (due to its own buildings). the service at the pool is very bad, we had to wait a very long time for our drinks.

We stayed there 5 days on a trip through Oman. Like the style of it, or not : it is very impressive, wery well looked after. Very helpful staff.
The rooms were spacious, with a gorgeous bathroom. There is a parking lot.

Breakfast buffet is very good, dinner is very good (we tried its different restaurants but fell for it's Italian restaurant : the Tuscany. Not only the meals were excellent, but also its wine list.

However : a few minor points : on our day of arrival, one of the hotel staff stole my pull-over and my desert cap (which I both left in our 4WD).
I had to go two times to the concierge to ask him for supplies for the bathroom : no soap, no toilet paper ... this was disappointing.

There is a shoe shine service which is good if you stuck to black shoes, which I did not. So my brown shoes have all been polished with black polish. The first time this makes one laugh, but ont the third and fourth day this is not so funny any more.

There is internet yes, in the Business Center, but you have to pay a hefty sum and it is incredibly s l o w . You had to go to an internet café to get good speed.

All in all : a good hotel, for business people, not for people who like to take some rest and get oneself spoilt.

We preferred the Chedi and will go back to that hotel.

Grand Hyatt, muscat, wow this is a classic hotel. Have labeled my trip from July 08 however I lived in muscat for 3 years and found Hyatt to be my sanctuary. I was a member so got things a lot cheaper, 50% of meals, and a free night stay, free use of pool (which is stunning to be honest). Great place to unwind and am going again in 3 weeks and eagerly waiting my sun lounger by that pool. Rooms are beautiful, and staff are wonderful, cant do enough for you. Yes it is pricey, but you know what? If you are whinging about the prices you should not be staying here in the first place.
My favorite is the breakfast buffet, and at Ramadan, Iftaar is great, for a selection of food. Night life is great with Safari club and its live music, cococabana is a bit tacky, but hey, go for it, old music but still love it.
Of all the hotels coming up in Muscat, this is still my favorite by far. Love it.

I stayed at the Grand Hyatt Muscat for two months in 2007 and was impressed by it's grandeur, but was quickly astounded by the price of some of their meals. The lobby, enormous window looking out onto the pool and ocean, and ornate details are exceptional. However the pricey buffets are to be tried once, but not returned too very often. I'm probably not remembering exact numbers, but I think a glass of wine and buffet was over $65!!

A tremendous note to make here is that the Grand Hyatt is about a 20-25 minute drive from the Old Muttrah Souq where the fun souq shopping is done. There is no neater place to be on a Friday night than on the Corniche, looking out at the Sultan's yacht. Unless you rent a vehicle, you will be taking a lot of taxis around Muscat, which can add up over a long weekend or a week. I definitely suggest renting a car and adventuring out on your own.

The rooms at the Grand Hyatt are quite large and very comfortable. I was a big fan of fresh fruits everyday after work! The gym was quite nice, equipped with a sauna/steamroom, and the pool was very large and never fully crowded. Lots of people sit by the lazy river, but no one really sits off the sides, so their are always spots to lay. Be careful though, as the sun is really really intense!

All in all the Grand Hyatt was a nice hotel to stay in for an extended business trip. Luckily I had a car and got out a lot to experience Muscat the way it was meant to be experienced!

The grand hyatt muscat is a great hotel. Everything about it underlines the luxury brand for which Hyatt is known.

I was fortunate enough to stay in a Grand Suite, which was extreamly spacious and well equiped. The furnishing is of a high quality and a big fluffy duvet and pillows aid a good nights sleep. There is lounge, bedroom and two bathrooms, one with a shower and seperate tub. Everything you would expect was in the room, and even a few things you would not expect - like a yoga mat and an umbrella (in the Middle East remember!)

The rest of the hotel lives up to expectation as well. Nowhere will you find an area in need of decoration or repair. The pool area and foyer also meet expectation.

Throughout the hotel, the staff are all friendly, attentive and always have a smile on their face. Grumpy people just don't seam to work here!

Ok, so it's all great but there must be a catch right? Well yes there is... Don't think all this is cheap! Food and drink in this hotel will see your cash evaporate before your eyes. Don't expect to see a bottle of wine for much less than £50 and a modest dinner for two in the tuscany restaurant will be at least £80 plus drinks.

In summary, great hotel but be prepared to pay for the experience...

We've stayed here around 5 times now. We love it. Each time we've had different rooms and they've all been the same excellent standard. Room service is great, the pool is great and the staff and service are top notch.

Our only gripe is that it is expensive, but there is a shortage of hotels in the Muscat area, this will change in the near future. I don't mind paying for good quality/service. If it were expensive and I was not happy I would say so!

Top tip: While taxis are cheap, driving here is easy too and great for a bit of exploring of nearby forts and beaches. Ask the concierge about car rental - good alternative to Avis who have a location in the hotel.

First of all I can say that Oman is one of the strangest cities I ever visited, it has a very special nature and it is very clean
My first impression of the hotel was not really good I arrived late night to a very busy reception with only one employee handling check in.
I had a confirmation for a club room with a king size bed but I got a room with 2 single bed and the hotel did not manage to get me to the correct room
I ordered room service "fish and fries" and watermelon juice, the fish was ok and the fries were terrible and tasted like it was prepared in the morning and heated before being served, the watermelon juice was corrupted.
The good thing is that the room was clean and the bed VERY comfortable.
The room in itself was Huge, the hotel lobby is very nice and has a strange looking piano
