BETWEEN THE AL HAJAR MOUNTAINS AND SEA OF OMAN, A PALACE INVITES GUESTS TO EXPERIENCE ITS HERITAGE ALONGSIDE MODERN LUXURIES.
Secluded amid an emerald green oasis overlooked by the rugged Al Hajar Mountains, Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel reopens its doors after a redefining renovation. With the glittering Gulf of Oman beckoning from the edge of its 200 beachfront acres and the glimmer of an exquisite crystal chandelier in the towering lobby, the former palace is a destination for both luxury travelers and high-profile events.
Set in gardens next to a Sea of Oman beach, this upscale hotel in a former domed palace is 7 km from both the Omani French Museum and the Al Alam Palace.
Featuring balconies or terraces, the sophisticated rooms offer free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and DVD players, plus minifridges and coffeemakers; some have sea views. The 1- and 2-bedroom suites add separate living/dining areas. Room service is provided 24/7.
A breakfast buffet and parking are complimentary. There are 4 restaurants, plus a chic cocktail bar. Other amenities include 4 outdoor pools, 4 tennis courts, a spa & a gym, plus a ballroom, and direct access to a private beach.

EXPLORE OMAN’S PAST AND PRESENT FROM THIS LUXURY BEACHFRONT
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, cuisine and nearby attractions like the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. Then there is the world of today, which appears in the newly renovated design, the resort’s six glittering pools and luxury shopping in Muscat.
Experience the best of both at this beachfront hotel, where guests can swim or dive along the private beach, perfect their backhand through the resort’s tennis program and practice yoga in a private or group lesson. Or venture out to explore iconic attractions like the Muttrah Souk, the National Museum of Oman or Al Alam Palace, all located just 10 minutes away.
