We'll start with what Muscat is not. Compared to other cities in North Africa and the Middle East, it is not (with love) as beautiful as Marrakech; as vibrant as Cairo; or as fun as Istanbul, but the Omani capital is still a superb destination thanks to its accessibility, both for sunseekers flying in, and to a range of truly exceptional landscapes and adventures within easy reach of the city. You could easily spend a few days soaking up the sun on the beach or by the pool(s) at a selection of first class hotels on your Muscat holidays, but the city should really be your launchpad for exploration of what makes Oman so special.
Dive the nearby Daymaniyat Islands; spot dolphins from catamaran charters in the Gulf of Oman; spend a night among the dunes in the Wahiba Sands; explore the dramatic Hajar Mountains on a 4x4 safari; haggle in the souq of ancient Nizwa. All these exceptional experiences are possible in one or more night adventures from the the capital.

The holiday was perfect thank you. We fully relaxed in the Chedi then managed a good hike in the mountains. Just wish we could have stayed longer at the Alila!
