Watersports on the private beach, beautifully designed interiors and extensive dining options culminate in this grand hotel, which is perfectly located to make the most of Oman’s natural beauty.

A Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Al Bustan Palace is positioned between the Sea of Oman and the Al Hajar Mountains. Its alluring collection of amenities include a private beach, five swimming pools and one of the largest ballrooms in Muscat. Foodies can sample international cuisine at one of the resort’s four restaurants, indulge in pastries in the sophisticated tea lounge or experience a nostalgic night at the newly opened 1920’s jazz bar. At the hotel’s private beach, you can take part in myriad water sports, such as snorkeling, kayaking and windsurfing, or simply relax and sunbathe by one of the lagoons. Luxury car transfer from Muscat International Airport, which is around one hour away, can be arranged by the hotel.

Each comes with a gorgeous mountain, sea or garden view, private balcony or patio, 24-hour in-room dining and a nightly turndown service, among other amenities. Each of the rooms are 40 square metres, while the Deluxe Mountain View Room comes with the option of one king or two twin beds.

Arabian inspired spa retreat

With five exquisite restaurants to pick from, you can experience a romantic dinner on the beach, afternoon tea and authentic Chinese cuisine all in one day, before heading to the Jazz Lounge to be transported back 100 years. Meanwhile, the spa, set over three levels within an Arabian fort-inspired structure, offers indulgent therapies with locally sourced ingredients.
