Flights to Muscat


Unlike some of its neighbours in the Gulf, Muscat is not massively built up or saturated with hotels and resorts. Yet the standard of hospitality here is high – nowhere more so than within the succession of beautiful beachside hotels. Surrounded by quality restaurants, beaches and high-end shopping options, it’s tempting never to venture further afield.

But to stay glued to the sunbed would mean missing out on what makes Muscat truly charming and unique: its carefully preserved history and traditions. Head for the port area of Muttrah and nearby Old Muscat, which teem with old forts from the Portuguese colonial days, and explore mosques, souks and museums. There’s a real sense of cultures coming together here, which is no surprise given the fact that Africans, Iranians, Europeans and, of course, Omanis made this alluring city their home centuries ago.

And, naturally, they came via the sea, which remains one of the biggest draws of this Omani city. These days, Muscat is a popular diving centre, both for those interested in the wrecks at Bandar Khayran and those who want to explore the marine life around the Daymaniyat Islands. If you want to keep your feet dry, dolphin-spotting trips can also be arranged.

It’s attractions like these that make flights to Muscat a top pick. Combined with a trip into Oman’s famous mountain regions, and it’s the kind of place where you could spend weeks and not get bored.

What to do in Muscat

Visit Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

Opened in 2001, the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is a massive and fascinating destination for Muslims and non-Muslims alike. With detailed Islamic designs and a carpet that took 600 weavers four years to make, it can hold 20,000 people at a time and offers a wonderful insight into the region’s culture.

Sultan Qaboos Street

Head for the hills

Muscat has many attractions, but no trip to Oman is complete without an excursion to the beautiful – and much cooler – mountain regions. Go through Al Hajar Mountains to visit the ancient city of Nizwa and the fortresses built to protect towns, oases and date plantations from tribal aggression.

Watch a show at Royal Opera House

Muscat’s Royal Opera House, which opened in 2011, is proof that the city’s cultural output is growing by the year. Oman’s biggest and best entertainment venue, it attracts world-class performers. Add its landscaped gardens, cultural markets, high-end restaurants such as Al Angham and an arts centre, and it's a must-visit on the tourist trail.

Where to eat in Muscat

Beach Restaurant at The Chedi Muscat (Seafood)

Everything at The Chedi Muscat is five-star, but the romance of looking out on to the Gulf of Oman at the Beach Restaurant makes it very special. As the name suggests, it’s a seafood menu in the main. Try the grilled platter of lobster tail, red mullet, sea bream, jumbo prawn and calamari.

Bait Al Bahr (Seafood)

Another beachfront restaurant, Bait Al Bahr’s wide balconies are the perfect setting for some seriously impressive seafood dishes. This is more of a casual dining experience, and is all the better for it. They even have lobster ice cream.

Al Angham (Omani)

Located right by the Royal Opera House, Al Angham is a great pre-show choice – a really elegant dining hall offering Omani cuisine. The fish biryani is a firm favourite, cooked and presented beautifully. Be sure to book in advance – Al Angham doesn’t take walk-ins.

Places to stay in Muscat

The Chedi Muscat

Set right on the beach, The Chedi Muscat is an elegant hotel with six restaurants, a Balinese spa, health club and three swimming pools. Even though it has the aura of an exclusive, secluded retreat, it's actually just a short taxi ride from the city centre.

Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa

Barr Al Jissah actually has three hotels. But for classic get-away-from-it-all luxury, go for Al Husn, where the rooms are palatial – literally – and the private beach is stunning. Its two restaurants are among the best in Muscat, and the city centre is only 15 minutes away.

Crowne Plaza Muscat

A seaside resort with an enviable location on the cliff tops of Qurum Heights, Crowne Plaza Muscat is both an elegant retreat and a convenient base for those who want access to the main business and ministerial districts. Its panoramic terrace, pool and private beach are gorgeous, and the leafy gardens offer tranquillity.
