The Sundus Rotana in Muscat has been designed to offer 215 quality rooms and facilities for business travellers and leisure guests. The client’s brief was clear – to create an ambience that echoes the country’s surrounding landscape, textiles and tradition.
What was important for this project was the use of the different spaces – from the layout of the guest rooms to the natural flow of the lobby area. Throughout the process there was an ongoing fine-tuning to ensure the spaces were optimised in the best possible way for comfort and functionality.
The local Omani culture with its rich heritage and harmonious colour combinations served as inspiration for the design throughout and, because the hotel’s guest base is primarily business travellers it was important that the guest rooms were more than good looks, the emphasis had to be on comfort and quality.
