Hotel Overview


45 minutes by car from Oman’s international airport and just 20 minutes from the capital Muscat.

Rooms at Al Bustan Palace

There are 250 guest rooms, including 50 luxurious suites with an exclusive Butler Service. For families, inter-connecting rooms are the way to go as a roll away bed and/or sofa bed are not possible in any of the rooms or suites. Bustan Lagoon Rooms are located on the ground floor and have direct access to the lagoon pool – the next best thing to having your own private pool.

Food and Facilities

Four excellent restaurants to choose from offering Asian, French, Italian, Chinese and authentic Omani cuisine. There are also three stunning pools as well as a separate kid's pool and playground. A fitness centre, located in the tennis club, offers the latest cardio and weight equipment plus separate aerobics room, sauna, steam room, and relaxation rooms. Complimentary, loaded iPods are available during your workout as are personal trainers should you need any extra encouragement.

Activities at Al Bustan Palace

The abundance of activities at the resort will keep you entertained but we also recommend taking the resort’s complimentary area shuttle to explore Oman – visit the souks and the Grand Mosque. When this all gets too much take a Dhow cruise and experience the wonderful waters of the Oman Gulf.
