Al Bustan Palace – Ritz-Carlton review by Nicole Allmann
Beset within a 200-acre verdant oasis of greenery beside a crescent-shaped marina, the palatial Ritz Carlton Al Bustan Hotel invites you to experience the ultimate in Oman luxury. Originally built to house the Gulf Cooperation Council Summit in 1985, the opulent Al Bustan Palace has since been transformed into a 5-star Art Deco museum-cum-hotel, famed as much for its fantastical artwork as its gracious hospitality.

Beset within a 200-acre verdant oasis of greenery beside a crescent-shaped marina, the palatial Ritz Carlton Al Bustan Hotel invites you to experience the ultimate in Oman luxury. Originally built to house the Gulf Cooperation Council Summit in 1985, the opulent Al Bustan Palace has since been transformed into a 5-star Art Deco museum-cum-hotel, famed as much for its fantastical artwork as its gracious hospitality. Renovated by new owners Ritz-Carlton in 2009, the former Government building has lost few of its original features – including the 35-foot domed atrium and floor-to-ceiling wall murals.

 

Al Bustan's 200 rooms and 50 suites are light, airy and sizeable; each benefiting from its own private balcony overlooking the ocean, or one of the five palm-shaded outdoor pools. Amenities include: mini bar, high-speed internet access, video on demand and flat-screen televisions.

Those with energy to burn will find a prime choice of amenities on-site, including a recently refurbished fitness and health centre fitted with the very latest cardio equipment. Or, drop by the tennis courts before midday for a private lesson courtesy of an LTA approved British tennis coach. Al Bustan boasts a choice of two bars and four restaurants for both casual and formal dining; Al Khiran, serving tasty Italian dishes in a beachfront setting; Beach Pavilion for seafood; French fusion at Al Majar and contemporary Asian cuisine at the oriental-themed China Mood. Romantics can also request a private table out on the terrace and enjoy bar-to-table service for the entire evening!
