Best Hotel In Oman – IMHO, Oman is the most beautiful country in the Middle East. It’s a shame that recent world events have caused anxiety among tourists, and especially (understandably) in the Middle East. However, Oman is a completely safe country in a turbulent environment and should be on your bucket list. Its most beautiful places and interesting cultures have inspired myths, legends and dreams that still excite the imagination. Oman has stunning mountains, mysterious deserts, stunning beaches, beautiful villages and unmissable wildlife. A welcome and authentic break from the modern era of its famous neighbor, the United Arab Emirates, Oman still offers a sense of the oriental spirit of 1001 Nights with its less touristy image. Now is the time to immerse yourself in the mystical beauty of Oman as the country prepares to attract more tourists with the opening of a new airport, a major conference center and a string of new hotels.
Below the slideshow is more information (and reviews and YouTube clips). Do you think I missed one? Share your favorite Omani hotel in the comments section or take my poll below.

The Muscat InterContinental is set on 35 acres of lush palm gardens between the Hajar Mountains and the sands of the Gulf Coast in the heart of Oman’s capital. The hotel is old, although there are some old rooms (although the hotel is currently renovating some rooms). It is located on the beach, but the beach here is public and unattractive. But despite its weaknesses, the hotel is large in comfort. It offers two floodlit tennis courts, a 25 m (82 ft) Olympic size swimming pool, a leisure pool, a fully equipped gym, sauna and jacuzzi. With a variety of amenities and proximity to Muscat’s main commercial district and just 15 minutes from the airport, the hotel continues to be popular with business and leisure travelers (although I wouldn’t consider it a luxury hotel).
Desert Nights Camp, the only desert camp in Oman, is the perfect starting point for an Arabian desert adventure with spectacular rocky mountains in the distance, endless dunes and crystal clear waters. It is only two hours away from Muscat. The camp is spread over 10 hectares of silky sand in a remote part of the Omani desert. The 30 air-conditioned Bedouin-style tents are comfortable with comfortable Omani-style living areas, luxurious four-poster linen beds with golden glow, tiled rooms and luxurious Arabic furnishings, and boutique bathrooms. Every evening, guests feast on traditional Omani food by the glow of the campfire.

The five-star resort is located 2,000 m (6,560 ft) above sea level on the curved edge of a grand canyon, on the rocky outcrops of the Saiq Plateau in Oman’s famous Green Mountain. The magnificent architecture reflects the surrounding mountains and Omani art tradition, as well as modern designs that reflect the region’s ancient forts. A stunning infinity pool with a viewing platform provides a great place to relax. Anantara Spa delights its guests with Arabian cleansing traditions and helps you find your natural flow in hot yoga. Visitors can also stargaze at the observatory where Princess Diana once stood. Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort offers Omani luxury in the most stunning natural setting.

The Chedi Muscat is one of the first luxury and ultra-chic resorts in the Gulf of Oman. Today, it remains the standard of quiet luxury and, with its minimalist design, is still considered the most beautiful and unique resort in Oman. It sits on a long private beach and 21 acres of monastic gardens, although the surroundings aren’t as nice as the hotels listed below (which is why I’m not at the top). The sparkling waters, lush gardens and impressive mountains as seen through the beautiful windows of the 158 tastefully appointed rooms and suites add to the relaxing effect of nature and the timeless nature. . The facilities at The Chedi Muscat are truly extensive, with six different restaurants, a thirteen-room Balinese spa, three swimming pools, including a magnificent 103-meter (338 ft) long pool, an elegant health club and two executive meeting rooms. .
Nestled between the rugged mountains of Al Hajar and the Sea of Oman, Al Bustan Palace Hotel, A Ritz-Carlton is a beachfront property set in beautiful gardens. The hotel was first opened in 1985 to host foreign heads of state for that year’s Gulf Cooperation Council summit and Sultan Qaboos 15th anniversary celebrations. Arabic and Art Deco influences give the resort an elegant look, especially in the atrium lobby with its 38 m (124 ft) high ceiling. From the private balcony in each of the 250 guest rooms and suites, guests can enjoy beautiful views of the mountain, sea or garden. The hotel is located on the most beautiful part of the beach near Muscat. In 2015, the amazing Six Senses Spa was added to the hotel, built in a surrounding of high rocks and rocky cliffs.
Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa is uniquely located on Barr Al Jissah Bay, between the rugged mountains of the interior and the stunning waters of the Gulf of Oman. The hotel has three different hotels: Al Waha (Oman’s first dedicated family hotel), Al Bandar and the child-free Al Husn. The latter offers Shangri-La the highest level of service, comfort and privilege. Its 180 rooms and suites are among the largest and most luxurious in Oman, with attractive decor inspired by the royal palaces of Arabia and enhanced by authentic Omani artwork. Guests can access the 100m (328ft) private beach and enjoy a complimentary mini bar, daily afternoon tea and pre-dinner cocktails and canapés.

With stunning mountain views and views of the Hajar Mountains, the hotel is ideally placed to explore the region’s rugged terrain, a destination for tourists, nature lovers and those seeking an escape from the desert heat.
