An iconic symbol of Omani culture and luxury steeped in ancient traditions and contemporary comfort, the incredible Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel is an emerald, green oasis located on the beachfront of the Gulf of Oman, between the rugged Al Hajar mountains and the sea. A landmark in Oman, this Muscat resort offers an alluring blend of old and new, local, and global, carefully designed and naturally untamed. Surrounded by lush gardens, golden sands and sensational views of Al Hajar Mountains, this luxury resort in Muscat is a destination of its own.
The Palace’s hotel rooms and suites seamlessly combine decor inspired by Oman’s culture and heritage with refined design and state-of-the-art technology. The 250 rooms captivate the imagination with contemporary design, luxurious elegance and an enhanced level of modern luxury provided by rich furnishings, lush materials, and neutral metallic tones. The exquisite interior design and artwork pays homage to Oman’s artisans with contemporary digital prints incorporating images of traditional Omani silverware, jewelry, khanjars, and coffee pots.
From the moment of arrival at this secluded resort, when dates and coffee are presented in a gesture of welcome and the smell of frankincense wafts through the lobby, there is the profound sense of belonging to two worlds. There is the world of tradition, expressed in customs and cuisine. Then there is the world of today, with the resort’s opulent design and luxurious amenities including six glittering pools. Experience the best of both at this beachfront hotel, where guests can swim or dive along a private beach or venture out to explore iconic attractions like the Muttrah Souk, the National Museum of Oman or the Al Alam Palace.
