Our suggested luxury hotels for this trip

Jumeirah Muscat Bay, Oman

Jumeirah Muscat Bay 

Set in the secluded cove of Bandar Jissah between the Al Hajar Mountains and the Gulf of Oman, this exclusive resort is just 15 minutes south of Muscat city centre and 40 minutes from Seeb International Airport. The property has 196 rooms but doesn’t feel imposing, largely thanks to the scale of the surrounding Al Hajar mountains and the long stretch of golden sand out front. The hotel includes a state of the art Talise Spa with luxurious treatments for those looking to unwind, and world class bars and restaurants for memorable dining and sunset drinks.
