Enviably positioned between the Sea of Oman and the Al Hajar Mountains, this Muscat hotel offers a mesmerising blend of old and new, local and global.

Set within a former palace, the only remaining in Oman, the resort features an alluring collection of amenities.

Muscat is a destination of boundless natural beauty with unspoiled beaches, endless desert and hulking mountains. Yet it is also a city rich in history, with its breathtaking mosque, and modern indulgences, including luxury shopping.

Tucked away in the capital, set along the Sea of Oman, Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel is its own attraction, offering guests a rich program of activities. A private beach, where one can wade in the crystal-clear water or venture out on a diving expedition, is complemented by six pools including one dedicated to kids and four lagoon pools.


  • Newly renovated guest rooms and suites with sea or garden views
  • Six Senses Spa with locally inspired treatments and six hammam rooms
  • Five dining venues featuring international cuisines and sea views
  • Private beach and four swimming pools, including one for kids

This all-day dining destination overlooks the resort pool stretching all the way to the sea. International cuisines are highlighted in lavish buffets, and indoor and outdoor dining is available.


Sitting below the 125 ft-high domed ceilings of the resort lobby, this sophisticated lounge features decadent pastries, light fare, and the signature Afternoon Tea experience.


Light meals, snacks, and refreshing beverages are served at this poolside bar overlooking the sea.



Encompassing 33,000 sq. ft. and three levels within an Arabian fort-inspired structure, the resort’s Six Senses Spa offers a distinct wellness experience. The beachfront sanctuary pulls from Omani culture both for its design and its treatments, which feature locally sourced ingredients. Treatment rooms include six hammam rooms, and separate ladies’ and gentlemen’s relaxation areas feature infrared saunas, ice fountains and steam rooms.


Located next to the tennis courts, with a breathtaking view of the gardens and beach, the fitness center features a range of cardio and strength equipment. A studio is available for private fitness and yoga classes (upon request). Post-workout, guests can enjoy the sauna, steam room, and relaxation rooms.


The resort’s Ritz Kids program introduces young guests to the natural wonders and rich cultural traditions of Oman. Through a collection of immersive activities that highlight art, sustainability, and food, among other themes, kids walk away with their own memories of Muscat.


A country of breathtaking natural beauty that is rich in history, tradition and diverse culture.
