Al Bustan Palace, A Ritz-Carlton Hotel is a recognized premier destination in Muscat having established itself as a popular venue and attraction for leisure travelers and business guests as well as all sectors of the local community. Originally built to host the 1985 GCC Summit, the hotel offers a diverse host of unique group and catering experiences – ranging from inclusive group events, day-meeting packages, executive retreats, to off-premise catering services and spectacular weddings.
“With a range of services and facilities that are ideal for business travelers and events, Al Bustan Palace remains one of Muscat’s most sought-after venues for events and meetings,” said Bernard N. Viola, General Manager of Al Bustan Palace. “We regularly host any number of events for clients that include local companies through to some of the world’s most recognized brands,” he added.
The hotel offers meeting and banquet facilities for up to 2,000 guests, featuring 200 acres of landscaped gardens as well as the longest private beach. With more than 44,000 square feet (4,088 sqm) of function space spanning 16 meeting rooms and a video conference facility, the luxury resort is a versatile and inspired setting – perfect events ranging from grand affairs to intimate gatherings. The largest in the capital of the Sultanate, Al Bustan Palace’s Majan Ballroom, with its size and grandeur, attracts a large number of Omani weddings and large-scale banquets. Hosting up to 2,000 guests for a standing reception or 750 for a banquet, the ballroom has a separate entrance on the first floor ensuring an impactful entrance for guests separate to the main atrium and lobby area.
For a banquet to remember, the Qantab Room’s private terrace overlooks the sea while its outdoor lawns, set amid the hotel’s stunning gardens, can cater for up to 500 guests for a banquet set up. Additional banquet rooms are also available for smaller events with each room decorated with intricate, colorful carpets, and furniture designed to reflect the vibrant Omani culture.
In addition to an elegant array of meeting spaces, a dedicated catering and conference services team of Ritz-Carlton ladies and gentlemen ensure that every detail is taken care of, allowing meeting planners and delegates alike to make the most of their time. The Al Bustan Palace also wishes to inform guests and visitors that road widening project, previously underway at the end of the Qurm-Darsait road en route to the hotel, has helped to ease traffic congestions ensuring a pleasant and scenic drive to the hotel along the Muttrah Corniche.
