My trip to Muscat, Oman.

My trip to Muscat, Oman.

It wasn’t my first trip to Muscat, and I don’t think it will be the last. And I stayed at Al-Bandar Shangri La Resort (for the second time), the first time at Al-Waha, and the third is Al-Hussain, which is only for Businessmen and Honeymoon (no children allowed, not even for the restaurants). I went through the Oman Air.

Oman people are very respectful and polite, and they serve even if they don’t know you. The country has many incredible neutral mountains and sea. Most people go for hiking, fishing and diving. And there is another activity. I went for relaxing.

I reserved a private sea trip with Luluat Al Day Maniyat, which includes fishing, snorkeling, dolphins view, banana boot, and privet beach.

Places that must be visited while staying there are Sultan Qaboos Grand Masjid (open for visitors from 8am to 10am), Royal Opera House (open for visitors from 8am to 10am), and Muttrah Souq (old Souq).

I enjoyed each minute of the massage; I tried the Vietnamese massage (cost 45 K.D for 80 min), which included the air cups in the end. The Masseuse knows exactly what she’s doing, and the amount of pressure she needs to apply.

I left with a smile in my face and satisfaction; I will try more treatments in the future.

Make sure you arrive early to enjoy all the facilities they have. The salt room (from 10am to 3pm for women, then men), which is a must, the rainforest shower, the color room and many other that you can enjoy while waiting your treatment, and it’ for free. The place is large and comfortable, as for the treatment it was good, though my cousin enjoyed more with her treatment.

I’m planning to go again and try another type of treatment.

P.S: couldn’t take pic inside, it’s not allowed.
