Al Bustan Palace Hotel in Oman to close temporarily for extensive refurbishments

The Al Bustan Palace Hotel in Muscat, Oman is about close its doors temporarily to undergo a large-scale renovation programme. The hotel’s accommodation will be refreshed and upgraded, along with many of its facilities and public areas.

The creative design firm WATG and its interior design studio, Wimberly Interiors, will be responsible for the renovation project which will be completed in a series of stages. This is the first time in ten years that some of the Muscat hotel’s spaces will be refurbished, and work is expected to commence in the next few weeks.

“Al Bustan Palace is an enduring symbol of the rich traditions of Omani hospitality and following the restoration, the Palace will be revealed as a repository of local culture and traditions.”

“In tandem, we wanted to take the palace to the next level of luxury for our affluent guests.”

Commented Katrin Herz, the General Manager at Al Bustan Palace. 

Owned by the Ministry of Tourism and operated by the luxury hotel group, Ritz-Carlton, the Al Bustan Palace hotel has 200 guest rooms and 50 suites. The property’s main guest arrival porte cochere, lobby lounge, grand ballroom, all-day dining restaurant, and meetings and events spaces will all be renovated as part of the programme, which is expected to be completed in February 2018. The redesign of the hotel will be inspired by the works of traditional Oman artists.

Al Bustan Palace opened more than three decades ago in 1985, and it is one of the leading hotels in Oman. Located in Muscat between the majestic Hajaar Mountains and the Sea of Oman, the property sits next to a private stretch of pristine beach and is surrounded by verdant gardens.

The hotel’s upscale accommodation features furnished terraces where guests can soak up the magnificent views of the sea, mountains and gardens. In-room modern amenities include flat-screen TVs, work desks, coffee makers, comfortable seating areas and wireless internet.

During their stay in Muscat, holidaymakers can enjoy access to upscale facilities at the property. These include three exquisite restaurants, swimming pools, a kids’ club, tennis courts, meeting rooms, a Grand Ballroom, a modern fitness centre, and a tranquil spa with sauna, steam room, hammam, and a variety of Middle East-inspired treatments and ancient therapies.
