Blessed with spectacular mountain, desert and coastal scenery, Oman is a brilliant destination for romantic stays. Oman is all about luxury hotels, spa treatments and snorkeling along the coast, medieval forts, camping in the desert, and sailing the oceans. In this series of posts, we pick the finest hotels in Oman that deserve a visit on your honeymoon/ romantic getaway.
Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel
Tucked away between the rugged Al Hajar mountain range and the Sea of Oman, Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel is a hidden jewel amongst Muscat hotels, a beachfront retreat that welcomes guests with customs steeped in ancient traditions and contemporary comfort. From each of the 250 guest rooms and suites’ private balconies, you can gaze upon magnificent mountain, sea or garden views. You can relax on the pristine stretch of private beach or dine on its sandy carpet under the stars, in one of the three distinctive restaurants. Perfect for honeymoons or romantic getaways, Al Bustan Palace provides all the ingredients that will stir memories for a lifetime.
The new Six Senses Spa, opening towards the end of September 2015, is a 33,000 sq feet relaxation and well being sanctuary set over 3 floors. It will offer a full range of treatments, including Ayurveda, and also has 3 Hammams, a gym with yoga studio, sauna, steam room and wellness relaxation room, so is a great place to fully unwind with your sweetheart.
Insider Tip: For direct access to one of the hotel’s beautiful lagoon pools from your private terrace we recommend an Al Bustan Lagoon Access Room.
