Al Bustan Palace
Al Bustan Palace, Muscat, Oman
Ever since its creation, the Al Bustan Palace has been providing first-rate service and accommodation; while it is the closest, good hotel to old Muscat it also has the advantage of extensive landscaped gardens and a long stretch of private beach. Guests are welcomed in a soaring atrium, richly decorated in a traditional style with a crystal chandelier and fountain. The 250 rooms are designed to reflect local traditions but also provide state-of-the-art facilities: all have balconies with views over the sea or mountainous landscape. The Al Bustan Palace has an enviable and deserved reputation as one of the best hotels in the Middle East.
