The famous Sultans' guesthouse run by the Ritz Carlton Group is considered one of the best in the world. The 5-star house with its own beach, directly on the Gulf, is framed by the mountains and the sea.
What is now the current Ritz Carlton Al Bustan Palace Hotel was originally built to receive the rulers of the other Gulf countries, whose suites are still located on the upper floors. The hotel's impressive, sacral-style octagonal lobby exudes an extremely refined yet relaxed Omani atmosphere.
The total of 198 rooms and 50 suites are elegantly furnished and of course offer all the comforts of a 5 star hotel, which shines in new splendor after a complete renovation in autumn 201.
Located on a beautiful stretch of sandy shoreline, with a sprawling private beach and a large, palm-filled garden with lagoon pools and a spacious infinity swimming pool, the hotel is ideal for extended stays in a luxurious setting.
Modeled after a historic village, the Six Senses Spa located on the hotel grounds, nestles picturesquely against the rocky bay, making the hotel one of the top resorts.
Historic Muscat is an approximately 15-minute drive away, while the Royal Opera House and the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque are about 40 minutes away.
