Which Hotel Suits You Best?

The accommodation options in Oman are as varied and diverse as the country itself. Do you like the personal charm of a small boutique hotel or do you prefer the wide range of leisure activities offered by a resort? Are you traveling with younger children and looking for family-friendly hotels? Or have you always dreamed of staying in a desert camp? With our hotel selection, you can make your Oman stay – whether in the city, the desert, the mountains, or by the sea – an authentic and extraordinary experience! 

Boutique-Hotel vs. Resort

Boutique hotels are usually smaller, individual, and particularly luxurious hotels. They differ from large hotel chains by a more personal design and outstanding service. This makes them particularly interesting for vacationers who value a hotel with characteristic charm and individual touch. While most boutique hotels are “adults only”, a resort with a wide range of leisure activities offers more opportunities for a family vacation with children. The larger resorts offer their guests everything they need for a relaxing vacation – restaurants, leisure facilities, and wellness offers. The perfect conditions for an all-around carefree stay!

THE CHEDI

The Chedi Muscat is THE Arabian boutique hotel and an absolute icon in the Middle East. Set against the backdrop of the majestic Hadjar Mountains on one side and the Gulf of Oman on the other, The Chedi rises like a modern Omani palace. With its Arabian courtyards, open fireplaces, and flowing water elements, the hotel embodies a blend of modern and Oriental elegance. In addition to a private beach, you can expect the longest infinity pool in Arabia and an excellent SPA area. The hotel offer is explicitly aimed at adults and families with children over 12 years.

AL BUSTAN PALACE A RITZ-CARLTON HOTEL​

The Al Bustan Palace is probably the most beautiful resort in Muscat. The resort is much larger than The Chedi Hotel and is in the style of a classic luxury grand hotel. The Ritz-Carlton-operated resort at the foot of the Hadjar Mountains is surrounded by beautiful gardens and has a private, expansive sandy beach. One floor of the imposing palace complex is reserved year-round for the Sultan – a resort could hardly be more royal. A wide range of leisure activities and the largest SPA area in the Orient round off a stay at Al Bustan Resort.
