Near the Oman capital Muscat, Al Bustan Palace with its Arabian fort styling is magical for children and adults alike – it's part of the Ritz-Carlton group, with all of the style and luxury that that implies, along with highly attentive staff who go out of their way to make sure everyone enjoys their stay.
Very clean and well positioned amidst mountains and lush gardens, on a stunning private beach, the resort offers activities including kayaking, sailing and scuba-diving. For kicking back, there's a lush beachfront spa including six hammam rooms.
The Ritz Kids program spoils younger guests with artistic, foodie and sustainability activities and healthy kids' menus in the restaurants, where global cuisine runs the gamut from Turkish to authentic Chinese, and even signature afternoon teas in the splendid domed lobby. Don't miss the resort’s children's indoor camping experience, with tents set in rooms and suites, personalised bedtime stories and other treats.
