Muscat Holidays: an Overview

Oman remains one of the least discovered countries in the Middle East, despite some of the finest luxury hotels in Arabia just a seven hour direct flight away.

Amelia, Isabel, Eleanor, Louise Fitzgerald and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • While not a patch on the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, the Muscat souq is still worth a visit. Make sure you get your sums right when haggling, though - the Omani rial is one of the few currencies worth more than the pound.

Luxury Muscat Holidays: the Detail

There are now three luxury hotels to consider near Muscat - the slick Chedi, the recently revamped Al Bustan and the three-in-one Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah, and between them they cater to everyone from honeymooners to winter sun-hunters and families equally well. And there's more to come with plans afoot for several of the big guns in the hotel trade to muscle in on the action with their own luxury hotels in Oman.


Original Highlight

Before heading out of the city, find time to squeeze in a visit to the flawless Grand Mosque and take a proper tour.
