‘Ahlan Wa Sahlan’ (welcome). You’re invited to join us for another magical journey into Oman, the precious Jewel of Arabia.

Explore natural wonders

Famed for its gorgeous rocky mountain landscapes as much as its stunning deserts and beaches, Oman offers visitors a myriad of opportunities to venture into the barren wilderness. One such delight is a coastal drive down to the beautiful Wadi Tiwi, nestled peacefully between the sharp mountain peaks. More…

Immerse yourself in culture

One of the most alluring aspects of Oman is its ability to present itself to each visitor as an unexplored paradise. While luxury hotels are plentiful and other tourist conveniences abound, travellers needn’t venture far to be immersed in ancient cultural traditions. A prime example is the Honey Tour, a genuine treat for those seeking an authentic cultural experience.More…

Savour local cuisine

Forming one of the more modern areas of Muscat, Shatti Al Qurum is a picturesque area of cafes, restaurants, cinemas, and shopping opportunities. The stunning beachside vistas are more reminiscent of a tropical island paradise than what one normally associates with the Arabian Gulf, with slender palm trees swaying gently in the wind above fine, soft white sand. Capitalising on these captivating views are a string of trendy cafes and restaurants. More…

Indulge in Omani hospitality

The Grand Hyatt name is synonymous with luxury worldwide. Nowhere is this reputation more deserved than at the Grand Hyatt Muscat. This extravagant property is one of the largest in Oman and occupies a pristine stretch of beachfront in the heart of Muscat’s beautiful Shatti Al Qurum district. More…

Journey through history

Oman is a nation with a proud maritime heritage, and perhaps one of the most iconic representations of this heritage is the traditional Omani dhow, or timber vessel. Built to suit a variety of applications from military service to fishing, dhows have evolved over the centuries but still retain a common format. A visit to Sur provides travellers with the opportunity to learn more about the Omani dhow and the context of its use and development. More…

Witness inspiring events

Oman is proud to be launching itself onto the world cycling stage this February with the Inaugural Tour of Oman. Running as a ProTour world cycling event – the same category as the Tour de France – it will attract top professionals from over 25 countries across 6 days of competitive cycling. More…
