Muscat gets its English name from the Arabic term for 'safe anchorage’, speaking of the city's age-old relationship with the sea. Until today, nothing has changed. The sea continues to be a major part of the culture and lifestyle of the city. The rocky Western Al Hajar Mountains dominate the landscape of Muscat.
Slated to open in 2018, Citadines Al Ghubrah Muscat sits in the heart of this picturesque place, and is strategically located near Sultan Qaboos Road - Muscat’s main arterial road linking the Muscat International Airport to the Ruwi's Central Business District.
The city lies on the Arabian Sea along the Gulf of Oman and is in the proximity of the Straits of Hormuz. Low-lying white buildings dominate most of Muscat's urban landscape, while the port-district of Muttrah with its harbour form the northeastern periphery of the city.
The apart’hotel is also nearby the Shatti Al Qurum Diplomatic District where many embassies are located, the upcoming Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre, Oman’s largest mall, and The Avenues Mall.
That relaxed energy is evident in Muscat, a small city of 1.5 million people that remains irrevocably charming. A diverse list of cultural fixes are available in the stunning city, including The Royal Opera House Muscat that was built to encourage Omani preforming arts groups, but is better known for its exceptional architecture and exquisite craftsmanship.
Another draw is the natural terrain - one of the most varied in the region. Beaches flow into deserts and roads lead to mountains. Remember to visit the wadis, lush desert oases where Omanis picnic and hike.
At the end of an adventurous day, retire to Citadines Al Ghubrah Muscat. The apart’hotel comes fitted with a range of apartment types for guests to choose from.
Residences will also have full access to a list of facilities such as a swimming pool, gymnasium, breakfast lounge and residents’ lounge, and complimentary Wi-Fi connectivity.
