This carefully landscaped 21-acre garden oasis and Omani-inspired decor offers you a space for quiet reflection and indulgence.

If you want a six-star stay, then look no further than the Al Bustan Palace Hotel, a part of the Ritz-Carlton franchise.

Things to do in Muscat
Take business class flights to Muscat and find a charming city awaiting you! The Sultanate of Oman is one of most stable countries in the region, with a well-developed tourism sector. You will find friendly locals who are more than happy to help you. A trip to Muscat is not complete without a visit to the Sultan Qaaboos Grand Mosque—a vast and grandiose mosque and grounds that will blow you away.

Business Class Flights to Muscat, Practical Information
British passport holders require a visa to enter Oman. Apply for an e-visa through the Royal Oman Police Portal. If you intend to travel as a tourist, apply for an unsponsored visa. Otherwise, follow the directions on the portal. Your passport should be valid for at least six months from your date of entry into Oman. Please make sure you carry your authorised prescriptions as some prescription and over-the-counter drugs available in the UK are banned in Oman.
The weather is most pleasant from October to April when temperatures are warm, but not scorching like the summer months. Harvest festivals take place in October and November, with temperatures in the low 30s (Celsius). November is probably the most popular month. However, Christmas and New Years is also extremely popular for visiting Muscat, in particular. Book your travel early! February can also be a good month to visit as the Muscat Festival takes place then. It is a month-long celebration of Omani art and culture. If you prefer natural sights, travel between March and April when the weather gets slightly warmer (around 30 degrees Celsius) and catch the rose blooming season at the Jebel Akhdar Mountains, not far from Muscat.
