    We know this hotel well as we once lived in Oman and visited several times. The ambience is still tranquil, cool and elegant. Service always courteous. A little pricey for a simple cream cake and coffee afternoon tea, but worth it for the experience.

    I loved the bustan - a beautiful, luxurious elegant setting. Friendly staff, prestine grounds, gorgeous views and the most beautiful tea garden I've ever seen. It's perfect for a romantic getaway or a refreshing change of scenery
