Set against a dramatic backdrop of rugged mountains, Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel lies solitary amid an emerald green oasis with 200 acres of lush beachfront landscaping, overlooking the glittering azure waters of the Gulf of Oman.
The hotel’s reputation as one of the world’s most luxurious resorts, and as an ultimate venue for prestigious events, has made it the winner of many awards over the years. A recent redefining renovation also allowed it to surpass the grandeur of its palatial history.
From the majesty of the 38 meter high lobby, complete with its exquisite centre-piece crystal chandelier and crystal fountain, the Hotel will further enhance its reputation as the ‘Jewel of the Sultanate.’
