Holidays to Muscat

Holidays to Muscat will exceed every expectation, whether you choose to spend your time relaxing on the beach, taking advantage of the array of facilities at one of our carefully selected resort hotels, or admiring the stunning Arabic architecture.

Muscat captures the essence of times passed, reminiscent of Dubai in days gone by. With few high-rise buildings, this charming destination has definitely retained its old-world charm. Spend your time exploring some of Oman’s most striking cultural landmarks, absorb the sights and scents of the multi-coloured souks or take a daytrip and swim in the pools of Wadi Bani Khalid, with its dramatic mountain backdrop.
