Oman is known for its burgeoning golfing season, but that doesn’t mean you should expect everything to be put together in time for your round. A country that relies on its hosting of the “Great Oman Open” tournament — one of the world’s top five golfing events — for tourism (and which is situated in the middle of the Arabian Gulf) already realizes the importance of quality time, including quality bathroom facilities, and these included adding capacity for very cool and technologically innovative plumbing fixtures.
From Jupiter’s Moonset Baths at the Complex In La Cite hotel to La Vie Non à Soir’s Street Floors, these amazing arches and slabs of mosaic tile have become a hit worldwide, inspiring visitors from around the world to aim for the stars.
No surprise, these architectural marvels start in Oman and then create a complete “space-age” ensemble, leaving many of these mosaics priceless. One of the most famous examples is the Kuala Lumpur Skyline, an iconic dome-topped structure commissioned to grace the skyline of the Malaysian capital city. At the sight of that piece of architecture, Oceania’s right to bask in the glow of giant mosaic tiles increases to a whole new level.
The art forms that created them are certainly worth touring, but the design team behind these mosaics will spread the word, especially on the rooftop of the Royal Oman Hotel, which not only has a floor with a mosaic tile veranda, but a view of it.
