Hotels in Oman

Oman is known for its popular tourist attractions like deserts and beaches. Beaches in Oman are known for being clean and well maintained. You can say the same of their first-class and budget hotels.

Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa is a high end three-hotel resort and spa in Muscat, the capital city. The resort sits alongside the clear bay of Al Jissah in a desert surrounded by mountains and beaches. The resort has 3 hotels - Al Waha (The Oasis), Al Bandar (The Town) and Al Husn (The Castle). Its spa is the best in Oman with twelve villas that can comfort body and soul.

The Chedi Muscat, on the other hand, faces the Boushar Beachfront in Oman, where the Gulf waters are as clear as mirrors. The Cedi features traditional Omani architecture, with a touch of simplicity. Each of the 151 exquisite rooms and suites give out to turquoise pools bordered by cabanas, a water garden, and a stretch of sand.

For those in the prowl for low economical retreats, the Al Jabal Hotel in Salalah fits the description. It stands on Sultan Qaboos Hospital Road. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the airport. Its 79 king-size and twin rooms offer you a 24-hour view of the busy streets outside. If you're looking for an oasis within the choking city, then go to Hotel Golden Oasis. It is known for its caring and sensitive service. It ranks high as well on cleanliness, quick service, and even luxury-in spite of its small size. The ambience it evokes is one of home and your own bedroom so you're assured of a long sleep each night.

Oman is a member of the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council, or the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf). As such Oman is a fast developing country that has the potential to rival the better economies of the West, especially in the areas of tourism and scientific research.
