The myth is gone. I am not paying a lot of money per night to end up arguing with the waiter at the pool about my order. Extraordinary cuisine, a great pool and beach area, but the atmosphere is ordinary and some clouds of incense burnt in the lobby don't bring the 1001-nights atmosphere which we enjoyed so much.

I stayed in this hotel the first time I visited Muscat and I really LOVED it! The hotel lobby was so grand! The staff welcomed me with Arabic coffee and lovely orange dates. The room was a mountain view. It also had a balcony, which was nice. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself. The beach is fabulous... More

I am just new here in oman and had a privilege to take a peak of the one of its renowned prestige hotels that most of rich and vip people visited and was amazed with the one of its kind beauty of this hotel. I find the pool amazing and nice architectural designs applied to make it look simply elegant... More

The Al Bustan has that rare thing in Hotels now days and it is the wow moment. As you step into the lobby you will be bowled over by the reception area - it is very special and I have been there before! The hotel is immaculate throughout, the rooms are clean and well maintained, the grounds are just stunningly... More

We enjoyed 8 days in this excellent place! It certainly has the most secluded beachfront and largest well kept gardens of all luxury hotels in Oman. Superbly friendly and helpful staff in all stations. The executive suites leave nothing to desire. Well appointed, very spacious and comfortable, two walk-on wardrobes, Nespresso machine, fresh fruit, ample water and fruit juice. The... More

I fell in love with Al Bustan Palace from the moment I walked through the doors. The hotel lobby is stunning - ornate and elaborate designs and filled with the frankincense. It is beautiful and traditional, and offers quite a contrast to the beach/lobby area awhile guests. The staff was great. My friend and I had a complex request -... More

A most impressive hotel - grand in style. Other reviews give major information. My thoughts are of comparison having stayed at the Al Husn in Muscat earlier in my holiday. (The Al Husn I have reviewed elsewhere on Trip Advisor). This is a close call between the two hotels. Both are of high standard in their dining options though we... More

We chose Al Bustan rather than Chedi Oman, following the poor reviews of the Chedi on trip advisor. The hotel and the grounds are fantastic and feels like a 5 star hotel. We shared a room for 6 nights and didn't feel cramped. However, for this level hotel, the service should have been better. The food options are limited -... More
