Where is the Al Bustan Palace

Is the hotel in the Musandam Peninsular as it indicates or is it south/in Muscat?

Google Earth is unclear

If you want to go to Musandam you can stay at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Khasab. It's basic but not too bad. I was there at the weekend. Nothing like Al Bustan Palace (which is in Muscat, over 600 km away). ILME

(oops just realised I replied to a really old post)

The Albustan Palace is in the outskirts of and slightly south of Muscat city .

It is a fair way from the souk in Muscat. A car/taxi is essential.We did not stay there but visited it.It is multi story a huge edifice with hundreds(?) of rooms some of which front onto a large pool area.

We found it overwhelming.

We preferred the Chedi in Muscat which is smaller- no more than two stories.We stayed in one of the suites adjacent to the beach.

The restaurant in the Chedi is excellent for all meals.See my earlier review of September 2011.

For the Peninsular see my review of the Six Senses at Ziggy Bay
