Yes, we all need a getaway from our day to day lives every now and again but for some of us switching off from the 9 to 5 is more about getting the heart pumping than simply sitting idly beachside. Luckily, the newly opened W Muscat Hotel in Oman has just the thing for such folk.
It may be the second time for the W Hotels across the region of the Middle East and Africa, but it’s the first time the weekend of fitness and fun will come to the W Muscat, as the hotel only opened its doors in August 2019.
Across the weekend of October 17th to 20th, the newest edition to the W family will host activities such as celebrity workouts and unmissable parties, all with nutritious yet delectable cuisine to keep guests going.
The mini-retreat weekend will perfectly merge fun with fitness, living by the philosophy DETOX. RETOX. REPEAT. The programme includes activities such as sun salutations at sunrise to boot camps and hiking adventures through the mountains.
But ensuring rest and relaxation plays a part in the weekend, the signature AWAY SPA has plenty of treatments to ease muscles and mind across the three-day event, too.
Speaking of the upcoming retreat weekend, Candice D’Cruz – Vice President of Luxury Brands Marriott International Middle East and Africa – said: “We know our guests work hard and they play harder. So, when it comes to W Escapes we push boundaries with settings from chill to play and everything in between.
“After a wildly successful FUEL Weekend at W Dubai -The Palm earlier this year, where our guests got to hit escape to the city’s bold and beautiful beat with fun and fuel, we are excited to bring our high-energy event to the coastal haven of Muscat.
“With its stunning location and vibrant atmosphere, W Muscat provides the perfect backdrop for our guests to dive in and experience more.”
While Gerald Chevasson – the General Manager at W Muscat – added: “Our FUEL Weekend is not your typical wellness retreat. With world-class workouts led by a team of expert trainers, healthy meals, cocktails, adrenaline rushing adventures, parties and more, it is all about our guests pursuing their lust for life and hitting pause on the mundane.”
Opening in late August of the year, the hotel itself boasts a beautiful beachfront location and a stunning backdrop of the rugged Al Hajar, and all of the 279 suite and room options allow the guests soothing views of the blue waters.
As well as the incredible natural surroundings, the hotel also boasts the AWAY SPA and Oman’s First Siddharta Lounge By Buddha-Bar.
On the opening of the hotel, Anthony Ingham – Global Brand Leader at W Hotels Worldwide – said at the time: “Muscat is a fascinating and exciting city. Its cultural DNA honors millennia of tradition while looking to what’s new and next – an ideal match for the W brand.
“The arrival of W in Muscat marks a new chapter for both the brand and this buzzing metropolis. The hotel reinterprets Omani design and cultural traditions to create a modern, energetic and stylish Escape, unlike anything the sultanate has seen before.”
