Hormuz Grand – Muscat’s newfound destination for Meetings and Events

November 10, 2014

Muscat: No hotel is more attuned to doing business than the Hormuz Grand.  State-of-the-art venues, flexible meeting spaces, business friendly facilities and impeccable service combine to ensure not only a successful outcome, but also a memorable experience enhanced by the hotel’s luxurious ambience, creative culinary delights and other distinctive offerings.

Muscat’s newest property is already winning top billing as a much-sought after destination for some of the best and most dynamic meeting space in the capital city. In the two months since it made its debut, the Hormuz Grand has already established its credentials as the venue of choice for a wide range of corporate and social events, be it conferences, exhibitions, product launches, media presentations, training seminars, breakfast meetings, weddings, celebratory gatherings and even one-of-a-kind signature events.

Designed in the style of a luxury business hotel, the Hormuz Grand is ideally positioned to cater to the lucrative meetings, incentives, conventions and events (MICE) market. From its vantage location to its comprehensive amenities, the property has all it takes to be Muscat’s leading hub for MICE activities.

Exemplifying the Hormuz Grand’s growing appeal as a luxury business hotel is its grand ballroom, delightfully named ‘Zaiba’, where powerhouse conference and social gatherings alike come alive amid its imposing settings and attendee-friendly amenities. Ranked among the largest conference rooms in Oman, this venue can seat up to 450 guests in theatre-style settings. Movable partitions allow for the venue to be resized and suitably configured to accommodate smaller groups. Furthermore, a pre-function area opens out into the tastefully designed outdoor setting overlooking the centrepiece water features in the courtyard.

For more intimate corporate gatherings, ‘Sacra’ provides a relaxing backdrop for executives and conventioneers to confer, deliberate and network.  Up to 130 guests can be accommodated in this fully equipped meeting space. Meeting rooms open out into the courtyard, allowing guests to enjoy cocktails and canapés amid the property’s delectable garden settings.

But underpinning the Hormuz Grand’s burgeoning appeal as a MICE destination is its unrivalled location. Situated just a stone’s throw from Muscat International Airport, the property stands at an important junction that leads to the Airport Heights district, which is home to some of Muscat’s most celebrated landmarks.

Under development across this upscale neighbourhood are iconic developments such as the multibillion Omani Rial Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre as well as the Mall of Oman, among a host of other luxurious tourism, hospitality and retail schemes.  Besides, a growing number of government ministries, colleges, high profile public sector undertakings and prestigious private corporations are moving their headquarters to this district.  Given its proximity and its unmatched choice of meeting spaces, Hormuz Grand is ideally positioned to serve as the destination of choice for this exclusive enclave.

“As one of Muscat’s newest properties, we’re seeing a growing preference for the Hormuz Grand as an exciting alternative to the existing meeting places that currently dominate the conferences and events market in Muscat,” commented Mr. P.J. Mammen, General Manager & Chief Operating Officer.  “With our signature facilities, highly adaptable function rooms and courteous service, we offer the most exceptional meeting space in Muscat. Whether you are planning an exclusive executive meeting or a spectacular gala event, Hormuz Grand is up to the challenge,” he added.
