Chedi, Shangrila or Al Bustan

I'm sure this question has been asked many times before but I thought if I gave specific details somebody may be able to give some comments which will help us decide on these hotels.

We are two single girls in our 40's travelling to Muscat in April 2012. We'd like a luxery hotel on the beach were we can chillout for a few days and celebrate a birthday. We are happy to eat in the hotel or will have a car to enable us to go out in the evenings. We would like a Spa but understand the Al Bustan doesnt have one.

Any advice would be greatly appreciate.

Many Thanks

For my money it's the Shangrila. It's somewhat removed from Muscat, as is the Al Bustan, but it's in a sort of cove with a decent beach. The beach at the Chedi is somewhat ugly. All 3 have decent swimming pools, so if the beach isn't the main draw, then any of the 3 are good. Car rentals in Muscat are reasonable so the ShangriLa distance from town is not insurmountable. Traffic once past the Al Bustan and heading towards the ShangriLa is usually minimal.
