Oman is a very unique holiday destination for a number of reasons. Located next to the United Arab Emirates, there are very little similarities between Oman and somewhere like Dubai. This isn’t to say that Oman is a poor country, in fact Oman could be considered a relatively well off area. The local people simply place an emphasis on the importance of modesty and tradition.
The culture of Oman is also very interesting. It strives to find a balance between honouring the old Omani traditions of the past with following Sultan Qaboos’ attempts to modernise the country. This can lead to curious situations for tourists, for example Oman has had female politicians for a few years now, yet in some parts of the country it is considered inappropriate for a man to smile at a woman. This may seem a bit daunting at first but it is here that the true appeal of Oman lies. While it is highly recommended that tourists should research the local culture beforehand so as not to accidentally cause any offence, this means that Oman provides a look into traditional Arab culture that hasn’t been warped by wealth and western influence like some of the Emirates have.
Tourism has become the fastest growing sector in Oman and with this they have attempted to capitalise on the growing interest from visitors. This has lead to a number of luxurious hotels being built around the capital. They range from fairly cheap hotels to the absolute peak of luxury and we here at Travelbag have all the best deals for you.
Oman has a range of lovely beach hotels to suit all budgets. Starting with the Al Bustan Palace near Muscat, this amazing hotel actually has the entire top floor permanently reserved for Sultan Qaboos. As the old saying goes, if it’s good enough for a Sultan, it’s good enough for you. Not to worry, compared to hiring out an entire floor, the normal rooms make the Al Bustan a cheap Oman hotel by contrast. If the presence of Royalty intimidates you, why not try the Grand Hyatt, a no less regal establishment famous throughout the Middle East for it’s afternoon tea. But what if you want to go a step further than the Sultan? Well you’re in luck because we here at Travelbag are proud to bring you exclusive prices on the Six Senses Hideaway, considered by many to be the best of the best hotels in Oman.
