Ever since its creation, this hotel has been providing first-rate service and accommodation as you'd expect from a member of the Ritz-Carlton group. Set not far from old Muscat, it also has the advantage of extensive landscaped gardens, and a long stretch of private beach.
The hotel has a buzz about it, due to its size and proximity to Muscat. As well as those looking to relax in the beautiful surroundings, you may come across people planning a trip to the desert, locals meeting for tea, or expats enjoying a drink.
Guests are welcomed by a soaring atrium, richly decorated in a traditional style, with a crystal chandelier and fountain, and the rooms are designed to reflect local traditions while providing state-of-the-art facilities.
There is a children's pool and playground and the Ritz Kids programme of supervised activities designed for 5 - 12 year old.
In the programme, children can enjoy beach games and water sports, creative and educational entertainment, environmental and nature programs, arts and crafts, outdoor adventures, swimming, sand castle building, water balloons, Frisbee games, volleyball, junior tennis, board games and videos and kayaking.
