Mark­ing a new era in its le­gacy, Al Bus­tan Palace, a Ritz-Carl­ton Ho­tel re­opens fol­low­ing a pe­riod of ex­ten­sive en­hance­ments that in­cludes re­designed rooms and suites, re­freshed Ritz Kids ex­pe­ri­ences, and new culi­nary op­tions. An iconic sym­bol of Omani cul­ture and hos­pi­tal­ity, the palace ho­tel has been reimag­ined to em­brace the needs of fam­i­lies and the modern global trav­eler, of­fer­ing new and in­spir­ing ex­pe­ri­ences that bridge her­itage with state of the art tech­nol­ogy and modern de­sign.

“Oman con­tin­ues to wel­come record num­bers of in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors thanks to our com­mit­ment to of­fer­ing world-class ex­pe­ri­ences for the modern global trav­eler that honor and cel­e­brate our beau­ti­ful nat­u­ral sur­round­ings, rich cul­ture and his­tory,” com­mented H.E. Maitha bint Saif Al Mahrouqi, Un­der­sec­re­tary for the Min­istry of Tourism. “The ren­o­va­tion of Al Bus­tan Palace, a Ritz-Carl­ton Ho­tel fully sup­ports this vi­sion and we are con­fi­dent that the ho­tel will con­tinue to con­trib­ute to the Sul­tanate’s thriv­ing tourism in­dus­try.”

Royal Es­tates Royal Court Af­fairs car­ried out the de­sign of most of the re­fur­bish­ment works, while renowned lux­ury in­te­grated de­sign firm WATG and af­fil­i­ated de­sign stu­dio Wim­berly In­te­ri­ors pro­vided some of the other ar­chi­tec­ture and in­te­rior ren­o­va­tion un­der the su­per­vi­sion of the Royal Es­tates. Un­der­go­ing a dra­matic

trans­for­ma­tion, the Palace’s ho­tel rooms and suites seam­lessly com­bine decor in­spired by Oman’s cul­ture and her­itage with re­fined de­sign and state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy. While the rooms re­tain their orig­i­nal el­e­gance, an en­hanced level of modern lux­ury is now pro­vided by rich fur­nish­ings, lush ma­te­ri­als and neu­tral me­tal­lic tones. New art­work pays homage to Oman’s ar­ti­sans with con­tem­po­rary dig­i­tal prints in­cor­po­rat­ing images of tra­di­tional Omani sil­ver­ware, jew­elry, khan­jars, and cof­fee pots.

“Al Bus­tan Palace, a Ritz-Carl­ton Ho­tel has been an iconic prop­erty in Oman for more than 30 years and we are de­lighted to in­tro­duce the newly reim­aged ho­tel to the lo­cal and global

com­mu­nity,” said Ka­trin Herz, Gen­eral Man­ager at the Al Bus­tan Palace, a RitzCarl­ton Ho­tel. “With our es­tab­lished and ex­pand­ing pres­ence in the Sul­tanate, we re­main com­mit­ted to be­ing a part of Oman’s de­vel­op­ment and look for­ward to set­ting new hos­pi­tal­ity bench­marks across the coun­try.”

Cap­tur­ing Oman’s spirit of ad­ven­ture and its love of the out­doors, the ho­tel presents a re­freshed Ritz Kids pro­gram and a new out­door Fam­ily Aqua Land. Ideal for fam­i­lies and multi­gen­er­a­tional travel, young ad­ven­tur­ers can now ride a zi­pline, splash through their own ded­i­cated pool, or slide from a large Omani tra­di­tional boat, all sur­rounded by lush gar­dens, golden sands and sen­sa­tional views of Al Ha­jar Moun­tains.

A va­ri­ety of en­rich­ing din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences can now also be en­joyed on the shores of the Gulf of Oman. With a newly ex­tended two-level ter­race pro­vid­ing daz­zling views of the fifty me­ters long in­fin­ity pool and the ocean, Al Khi­ran Kitchen high­lights the best of the coun­try’s nat­u­ral beauty along­side cui­sine that show­cases the fresh­est lo­cal pro­duce and fla­vors from farms across the Sul­tanate. Beach Pavil­ion

Bar & Grill cap­tures the spirit of the sur­round­ing sea with an ex­pan­sive deck over­look­ing the seafront and fea­tures sim­ple yet ele­gant, lo­cally-in­spired seafood dishes and grills. Al­ready cel­e­brated as one of Oman’s finest Asian res­tau­rants, China Mood now of­fers an ele­gant ter­race from which to en­joy its au­then­tic Chi­nese cui­sine and unique tea som­me­lier show.

The Grand Ball­room and meet­ing rooms have also un­der­gone a ren­o­va­tion, mak­ing Al Bus­tan Palace, a Ritz-Carl­ton Ho­tel, Mus­cat’s premier des­ti­na­tion for the most pres­ti­gious wed­ding cel­e­bra­tions and events. The new event ex­pe­ri­ence has been cre­ated to touch on guests’ five senses and in­cor­po­rates modern tech­nol­ogy with the very best of Omani hos­pi­tal­ity, along­side the leg­endary Ritz-Carl­ton ser­vice.

True to its com­mit­ment to the peo­ple of Oman, Al Bus­tan Palace, a RitzCarl­ton Ho­tel, wel­comes vis­i­tors who wish to spend a day at the ho­tel with a Beach Day Pass that of­fers ac­cess to the pri­vate beach­front and fa­cil­i­ties. Re­cre­ation Mem­ber­ships have also been re-cre­ated for res­i­dents and fam­i­lies who wish to en­joy ex­clu­sive, year-round ac­cess to the ho­tel’s pala­tial fa­cil­i­ties and beach­front.
