Highlights

Explore this unique and authentic country from your base at the luxurious Al Bustan Palace in Muscat, one of the most beautiful and enchanting regions in Oman, with its mysterious souks and impressive landscapes.

Your family can relax at the hotel with its spectacular grounds and clear warm waters of the Arabian Gulf, with time to spend planning days of adventure exploring the desert, whether that happens to be by camel or quad bike.

Activities and Indulgences For you

Oman is a land of treasure and adventure. Spend your days exploring the enchanting deserts and mountains, and your evenings drinking sundowners on the peak of a sand dune. Take some time out from exploring the sand to discover the sea, go swimming in the warm crystal clear waters of the gulf coast, with its beautiful beaches and teeming sea life.

For a truly unique experience, get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and take to the desert for a night under the stars. You'll travel 300 kilometres from Muscat to escape it all and experience the true Arabian desert. Stop off at a Bedouin family home before journeying on to your camp site, where you'll enjoy a traditional BBQ as you watch the sun go down.

If you're looking for a slightly slower pace, then enjoy the stunning facilities of the Al Bustan Palace or settle down for a daily yoga session at the hotel's fitness centre. 

For the kids

Muscat has the perfect balance between cultural experience and outdoor adventure for active kids.

Spend one day snorkelling in the clear waters of the Gulf of Oman or running wild in a deserted wadi and the next exploring ancient forts and visiting traditional hill villages.

Downtown Muscat is a safe and fascinating day out, exploring souks unchanged for centuries, offering beautiful handmade silver, antiques and curiosities as well as traditional leather goods.

The hotel also has its own activities designed to suit active kids, with day to day activities including anything from table tennis to body boarding, and kayaking to cookery.
