Beautiful Al Bustan Ritz Carlton Hotel Muscat, Oman

There was a compliment shuttle bus 
running every half an hour
from the port to the town centre
where Mutrah Souq is located.

Lovely half moon shape harbour 

Around the souq

Inside the souq

After short sighting of the souq,
we were negotiating a taxi to hire for few hours.

We bumped into a nice Canadian couple 
we shared a taxi with
when we were in Phuket, Thailand.
They were also looking for a taxi 
so here we are again to share 
a nice day together in Muscat!

Beautiful mosque that 
 closed just few minutes before
when we arrived by taxi.
We should have known it before!

 Other unfortunate tourists 
who tried to get in to the mosque.

Grand Hyatt Muscat that our taxi driver wanted us to view

Beautiful inside the hotel lobby.

Out door pool leads to a nice beach

Very modern looking piano in the lobby

 Opera house is the next stop

Our taxi driver

We really wanted to come to this hotel 
as there were so many people 
strongly recommended to visit.
Al Bustan Ritz Carlton Hotel Muscat!

There is a ship's tour that passengers can have
high tea in this elegant hotel lobby.

Al Bustan hotel outdoor pool and beach area

We, four of us, had light lunch here in this 
gorgeous setting with palm trees alongside a beach.
It was like a dream.

 The palace for the president

Incence burner is the nickname for this interesting building

Party on board was just about to start when
we came back to the cruise ship.
A belly dancer looked very extotic!
