What people say

"Our go to for any celebration in Muscat! Even if you don’t stay at the Bustan I would strongly recommend adding a trip here for afternoon tea to your itinerary. The atrium is a spectacular setting, and the service always genuinely excellent. The cakes and sandwiches are always fantastic – and locally inspired – and I think great value for a bit of indulgence in one of Oman’s most luxurious 5* hotels. One portion is 12.50 OMR, and is plenty for two people to share. Booking is essential and the dress code is smart casual – no jeans or shorts permitted. Who wouldn’t want to stay in a Sultan’s actual palace?! The ninth floor of this hotel is reserved for the exclusive use of Sultan Haitham. This is my ultimate Muscat beach hotel – try and get a lagoon room. This Muscat institution may seem a bit out of town, but offers free shuttle services to the Grand Mosque and Muttrah for guests. "
