Our Opinion
The Al Bustan stands in splendid islolation with the typically rugged mountains of Oman behind and the sea infront. It is elegant with a real feel of Arabia. The central lobby is spectacular with amazing chandeliers set in a 38 metre high atrium.

There are a wide variety of rooms, from the Garden view rooms that overlook the Hajjar mountains to the Lagoon rooms that have direct private access to one of the lagoon pools. All the rooms are a good size and are beautifully presented. Service and attention to detail is without question.

The intricate work of the handcrafted wall coverings and the unique materials used bring the rooms to life.
