The brand is also bringing its renowned beach club concept — which debuted in Miamiin 1998 — to the sultanate. Nikki Beach Muscat will be located adjacent to the hotel and promises stylish music-centric vibes, a swim-up bar and a glistening private shoreline.
About a 30-minute drive from Muscat airport, and only 28 kilometres from the city, Oman’s newest resort will appeal to sun-seeking residents and international visitors.

“The property will introduce a new customer experience that goes beyond the norm of luxury hospitality and further elevates the entire market, and we look forward to amplifying the natural attraction of Yiti to bring forth a new cultural highlight for the region.”
Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Muscat will also offer three upscale restaurants including an all-day dining Cafe Nikki, Soul Lounge in the hotel’s lobby and Escape. Guests can also dip in and out of three resort swimming pools, unwind at the Nikki Spa or keep their fitness on track at the fully equipped Tone Gym.
For those who can’t get enough of the Nikki Brand, private residences will also open at the destination shortly after the hotel welcomes visitors.
The resort is part of Oman Tourism Development Company‘s (Omran) recently announced tourism development plans for Yiti Bay, which include an 11-million-square-metre urban living and leisure master plan.
