Flights to Muscat


Unlike some of its neighbors in the Gulf, Muscat is not massively built up or saturated with hotels and resorts. Yet the standard of hospitality here is high, and nowhere more so than in the succession of beautiful beachside hotels. Surrounded by quality restaurants, beaches, and high-end shopping options, it’s tempting to not 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 center, both for those interested in the wrecks at Bandar Khayran and for 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 a flight to Muscat a top pick. Combined with a trip into Oman’s famous mountain regions, it makes Muscat the kind of place where you could spend weeks and not get bored.

What to do in Muscat

Go on marine adventures

The clear waters of the Gulf of Oman are popular with divers and water sport enthusiasts. Tourists can also go on dolphin- and turtle-watching trips. The best time to see the turtles is from July to October, when more than 20,000 of them arrive on Oman’s shores to lay their eggs. One hotspot is the Daymaniyat Islands, an hour out of town.

Understand Omani history

Of all the museums in Muscat, Bait Al Zubair is the most interesting, thanks to its collection of Omani weaponry, costumes, and jewelry. There’s even a recreation of an Omani village in the self-styled "house that became a museum," and the house itself is intriguing as a symbol of old Omani wealth.

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 center, and it's a must-visit on the tourist trail.

Where to eat in Muscat

Mumtaz Mahal (Indian)

Mumtaz Mahal has been a Muscat institution for years now, offering good food and amazing views from a hilltop overlooking the city. A renovation has raised the experience to a whole new level, but the food remains a combination of classic dishes and innovative specialties. And the prices are reasonable too.

Ubhar (Omani)

For an introduction to Omani cuisine, try Ubhar. This is one of most refined places to get a taste of Omani food—check out the camel biryani. There are also Arabic and European dishes on the menu. Ubhar does takeout, too.

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 favorite, cooked and presented beautifully. Be sure to make a reservation—Al Angham doesn’t take walk-ins.

Places to stay in Muscat

Grand Hyatt

Perhaps the best way to describe Grand Hyatt is with the word "opulence." This Arabian hotel does everything to look after its guests, and its location on the white sands of Shatti Al Qurum Beach is just as amazing as its wonderful rooms, restaurants, and pools.

The Chedi, Muscat

The Chedi might well have been the first five-star hotel to open in Muscat but, although it’s more than a decade old, the resort feels fresh as ever. Read more The Chedi, Muscat

Alila Jabal Akhdar, Oman

Perched on the side of a cliff in the Hajar Mountains, 2,000 metres above sea level and Alila Jabal Akhdar is certainly in a prime location. Inspired by Omani forts and built from light-coloured local stone and dark wood using traditional Omani techniques, the property eschews the gaudy trappings so often associated with luxury for a neutral colour palette and an elegant, minimalist design aesthetic, which, combined with the surroundings, creates a sense of serenity Read more Alila Jabal Akhdar, Oman
