Muscat Oman

the Capital of Oman since the late 18th century; its relaxed pace of life and old world courtesies make it a great place to have a holiday; and we also think it makes a wonderful city to live in.

We are based in the area of Muscat known as Al Khuwair (most guide books refer only to Muscat, Muttrah and Ruwi) and know the city and its people well.


Much of the city’s charm lies in its location between stunning rugged mountains of either Limestone or Ophiolite and the warm waters of the Gulf of Oman. On the beaches of Muscat there are several excellent hotels - Al Bustan Palace, The Chedi & The Shangri-la which we visit frequently, we can book rooms for you in these or one of the town based hotels scattered in the spreading suburbs of Muscat.


In Muscat there are a number of small Museums whose displays and exhibitions focus on Oman. Our favourites are - Bait Al Baranda which gives an overview of Muscat's history and as an added bonus has changing art exhibitions – the Natural History Museum whose displays give an insight into Oman’s often hidden fauna and more obvious flora – and the Oil Exhibition which gives a nice insight into Oman’s small but important oil production.


Make time when you are in Muscat to visit the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. The quality of workmanship is outstanding and attention to detail remarkable. We include it on our Muscat City Tours and can visit it at the start of some longer tours of Oman.


Muttrah’s Souq area is a labyrinth of small shops selling an eclectic mix of products, naturally including Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh (you can read an article about Frankincense on our about us page). The Souq is where we sometimes sit and have a great ‘Masalah Shai’ (Spiced Tea).
