Welcome to the Sultanate

The Sultanate of Oman could not be more unlike Dubai, its flashy neighbour on the Arabian Peninsula. Here, you won’t find colossal skyscrapers or town-sized shopping malls. Yes, Muscat (the new part) is impressively modern, and several of the country’s luxury hotels (where we stay) rival the best in the West. But what makes Oman so special is everything else: its mystical culture and ancient souks, the soaring Hajar Mountains, endless white-sand beaches, the imposing Wahiba Sands —and of course the Omani Grand Canyon. It doesn’t get less frenetic, or more exotic.

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Al Bustan, Muscat

Just south of the Old City, Al Bustan is a monument to architecture in the Middle East. From the moment you walk in the door you will know and love that you are in Oman. A huge, arched lobby that is all intricate mosaics gives the hotel a uniquely Islamic feel. When royalty comes to Oman, this is where they stay.

Notes from the Road

In Oman, A Secret Worth Keeping

If there is any destination whose secret is worth keeping, it’s Oman’s. With mile after mile of pristine beach and seas teeming with dolphins and turtles, its vast coastline is as untouched as it gets. Sheer rock faces plunge into a deep, blue sea that, centuries ago, Oman ruled as part of an empire that spanned most of the eastern coast of Africa.

Oman: A Magic Kingdom

At dusk, when the setting sun turns its saw-toothed peaks, mammoth gorges and jagged cliffs blood-red, you’d swear you were on Mars. True, Oman’s ruggedly gorgeous Musandam Peninsula is slightly more populated than the Red Planet, but just barely.
