The Intercontinental Muscat, an IHG [Intercontinental Hotels Group] hotel in Oman, has re-opened its Musandam restaurant following a comprehensive rebranding and renovation.

Inspired by the Musandam Governorate [a mountainous Omani peninsula projecting into the Strait of Hormuz], blue oceans and golden sands, the restaurant offers guests a unique dining experience and captures the essence of the region’s beauty.

French designer Christian Lepretre led the design of the transformed restaurant in a project lasting eight months. Its construction was completed in six months.

An Omani company was given the contract for the project.

Musandam features sustainability initiatives such as Energy Star standards for kitchen equipment and the use of volatile organic compound-free paint, aligning with IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Journey to Tomorrow initiative.

The restaurant features modern dimmer controls and LED lighting, both of which support energy conservation.
