Kempinski Hotel Muscat, Oman
Not every yachting destination can juxtapose the open ocean with a backdrop of majestic mountains. This Middle Eastern outpost of European brand Kempinski, however, boasts panoramic views of both from its sweeping infinity pool. In keeping with its surroundings, the magnificence continues as you enter the cubic hotel; a vast white marbled lobby is decorated with pillars that echo the architecture of the Sultan’s Palace.
The beachside retreat, handily located just 15 minutes from Muscat International Airport and a short stroll from Al Mouj Marina, is the perfect base for exploring Oman’s adventure-packed coastline. Within a couple of hours you can find yourself kayaking through a craggy canyon or trekking across the rugged terrain towards an unspoilt oasis like Wadi Tiwi. Once you return, dine like royalty in one of the hotel’s eight restaurants, with cuisines ranging from Indian dishes to Thai street food. For local delicacies, including citrus-infused Omani Gulf lobster, head down pathways shaded by date palms and frangipani trees to the shoreside Zale Beach Club & Lounge. Afterwards, return to nest in one of the hotel’s four palatial suites, with your own plunge pool.
