The Al Bustan Palace Hotel Oman

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

The Al Bustan Palace Hotel Oman is one of the finest hotels in Muscat Oman, and is a serene oasis of style, grandeur and hospitality.

The Al Bustan Palace is the leading Oman beach hotels resorts, and is one of the finest hotels of its kind in the Middle East.

It stands in 200 acres of palm shaded gardens, beneath a rugged mountain backdrop, with a large sweep of beach next to the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. The hotel is designed to replicate the rich culture of architecture in Oman.

Only 40 minutes drive from the airport, and 10 minutes from Muscat, the Al Bustan Hotel is ideally placed for a beachside vacation, or exploring Oman.

I am very pleased to have found the Al Bustan Palace Hotel Oman, it has been a real find, from the attentive staff, to the décor, and the sheer comfort. It is easy to see why the Al Bustan Palace is rated as one of, if not the finest of the Oman hotels resorts.

We stayed in an Arabian Junior Suite which was very spacious and beautifully decorated, with amazing views of the sea, the mountains and the lovely gardens. They have a lovely beach. Canoes, boats etc are available

Everything you could need or want had been catered for, we really felt totally spoilt, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the extremely attentive staff.

I stay in top hotels routinely, but I have slept in some shockingly uncomfortable beds in my time, but the bed was probably the most comfortable hotel bed ever!!

In terms of meals at the Al Bustan Palace, we were impressed from the sheer scale of the hot and cold dishes at breakfast to the stylish restaurants serving delicious food.

It is the little touches that can make or break a holiday, and the complimentary cool box on the beach was just fantastic. It had bottles of mineral water, ice, ice cold flannels, and a cool spray ? quite magnificent when you have chosen high summer and 40 degrees for your vacation!!

I will definitely return to The Al Bustan Palace, although my return will be delayed by the refurbishment in 2007.
