Al Bustan Palace, A Ritz-Carlton Hotel

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: Al Bustan Palace is in a divinely-scenic location, nestled between the jagged Al Hajar mountain range and the sparkling Sea of Oman.

Services: Every whim is attended to here with a comprehensive and personal service, reflecting the Omani hospitality and cultural way of life.

History: Muscat has a rich history that is believed to date back to the 6th millenium BC. The authentic architecture found concealed down rustic winding roads are redolent of the past and a display of ancient cultural heritage.


With the hotel’s range of facilities, there is something to suit every taste; sun-worshippers can soak up the rays on the expansive private beach or in one of the five pools, whereas those who prefer to remain active can workout in the fitness center. In addition to the on-site facilities, there are also a number of daily recreational activities, including yoga, snorkelling and aqua aerobics.

Fitness Center

Al Bustan Palace Fitness Center features state-of-the-art machinery with a number of weight machines and cardio equipment. Guests can maintain their fitness regimen here while enjoying surreal views over the hotel gardens and golden shores out of the center’s expansive windows. The sauna and steam rooms make for a sedate retreat after an intense workout.


The hotel's 164-foot temperature-controlled infinity pool is a relaxing area, accompanied by dramatic views where the azure sea and sky blend together seamlessly. Four other lagoon pools make for a refreshing dip in the afternoon heat and the perfect spot to float the day away.


No less than four dining options await the most adventurous of palates. With local and international dishes and both indoor and al fresco dining, Al Bustan Palace has varied dining choices for guests, just steps away from their luxury suite.

Al Khiran Terrace Restaurant

Diners can expect a refreshing and vibrant atmosphere at the Al Khiran restaurant as they enjoy dining with a view. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available with views over the Sea of Oman. International dishes are prepared at live cooking stations and themed buffet nights are a popular option. 

Beach Pavillion

The Beach Pavillion offers al fresco dining at its best. Set along the picturesque coastline, surrounded by candles and authentic lanterns and looking out to the horizon, this beach restaurant is an idyllic setting to savor the freshest seafood and array of grilled meats. 


Blu provides guests with a refreshing garden and pool experience. The tiki-style bar offers a laidback ambiance where diners can sample local flavors in the form of light lunches and snacks as well as exotic drinks and cocktails.

China Mood

Set in the heart of Muscat, China Mood offers a true taste of the Orient. A combination of authenticity and innovative mix of flavors created by expert chefs has earnt the restaurant the reputation as one of the best Asian restaurants in Oman.
