About the location
Muscat is an ivory-white port city that rambles between the sandy Gulf of Oman and Al Hajar Mountains.
Understated luxury is the theme here. Strict building laws safeguard Arab architecture, so even modern buildings come with filigree window shutters, carved balconies and mosaicked doorways. Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is the star, though – its towering dome and quintet of minarets strike out above the city skyline.
Meanwhile, Old Muscat – the city’s historic heart – slides east of the city centre, guarded by a pair of waterside forts. At the opposite end of town, high-end hotels boast spots beside bronzed beaches, while sprawling villas and family-friendly cafés decorate nearby expat neighbourhoods.
Muscat is also a dab hand at delivering the unexpected. For starters, you won’t see vineyards (despite the name, Muscat grapes – and the wine – likely don’t originate here). But you will see surprises like the Italian-Arabic Royal Opera House Muscat, which comes with a cluster of French bistros and steakhouses.
25 minutes from Muscat airport.

We stayed for 7 nights in March this year and from the first day till the end, we were simply spoilt by the staff who could not do enough to please no matter what time of the day or night. The service in the three restaurants was consistently excellent. Staff would take the trouble to know your preferences and would endeavour to action them. We ate on site for convenience. Tables need to be booked as the prime location get to be taken quickly. Inside the main restaurant is cooler with the air con and piano background music. The hotel grounds are simply fantastic and beautifully landscaped and is lit at night to create a romantic ambiance. The gardeners incessantly attend to the grounds which are delicately manicured. Staff at the pool area- Babu and Pani would keep our glasses top up with iced water and would be at everyone beck and call. Lots of loungers available to be in the shade. The three swimming pools are just superb and feel spoilt for choice. There is a beach restaurant and a fish restaurant too. We went to the Old Muscat, the fish marke and the Souq market- and the Grand Mosque- worth visiting. Room service is great. Do take time out for a spa. Really enjoyable. Thank you all for a fabulous holiday which we will treasure.

We stayed for 5 nights at the end of March on our first holiday without children for 15 years. The style is Arab minimalism and the hotel grounds and amenities really hit the mark. We stayed in a club serai room and paid the extra for access to the club lounge, with afternoon tea and evening cocktails and canap??s. We thought this was really nice and worth the extra. The three pools are lovely and there are lots of loungers. The clientele seemed 40% German, 40% British and then assorted others. The gym was fantastic. Restaurants were very nice. We went into Muscat itself a couple of times for dinner and it was nice to go ???off reservation???. Begum was a particularly nice Indian restaurant.
