Explore Magical Muscat holidays

Why should Muscat be your next holiday destination? Well, in a word, it’s unspoilt. If you’re looking for a fresh take on the Middle East, with fewer supercars and more souks, this could be the capital for you. With regular flights with our oneworld® partner, Qatar Airways, you can land you in your dream sun spot year-round.

Safe, attractive and welcoming, you’ll feel well looked after in Muscat – it’s the little things, like the sweet dates that come with your rosewater coffee, and the warm familiarity which locals extend to visitors, that makes Muscat a great holiday destination for everyone. Families may fall for the calm beaches tucked around the city, where you might spot turtles surfacing, whilst couples can enjoy a full cultural immersion, starting in the Muttrah Souq, and ending the day in a traditional hotel. No holiday is complete without stopping to gawp at the artistry within the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque.

Old Muscat

Separated from the rest of Muscat by mountains, Old Muscat is a tiny, historic walled city dominated by government buildings – many of which, with their serene, symmetrical architecture and gorgeous horseshoe arches, are worth seeing from the outside even if you can’t go in. Two imposing forts, Al Mirani and Al Jalaili, stand guard above the grandiose ceremonial home of the Sultan – the Qasr Al Alam Royal Palace. You can visit the National Museum, which opened to the public in 2016 and tells a comprehensive history of Oman. If you want to stay near the area, check in at Al Bustan Palace – a Ritz-Carlton Hotel – it's set in a former palace.
