More about Al Bahjah Hotel

Do you want the cheapest?

by jayjayc about Seeb Guest House

1.) Did not stay in this hostel, just happen to passed-by into this hostel while looking for a restaurant to have my dinner.
2.) Very near (I think just a block away) from "Al Bahjah Hotel - Seeb" where I stayed.
3.) If I saw this Hostel first, I'd rather checked-in here than Al Bahjah. It looks fine and more than acceptable.
4.) They charge around 60-80 UAE dirhams / pax / night (July 2008). I can't remember how much it is in Omani Rial. NOT so Unique Qualities; just additional information:
1.) Only got the chance to see the lobby where I inquired about the room rates.
2.) Looks quite and nice.

Reasonable Place to Stay

by jayjayc about Al Bahjah Hotel - Seeb

1.) About 20-minute taxi ride from Muscat International Airport.
2.) Had a pleasant stay.
3.) Nice and quite room.
4.) Can't remember the exact amount (in Omani Rial) I paid the hotel for an overnight stay but, closely I'm pretty sure and remember that it is as much as 250 UAE dirhams.
5.) Nice and helpful Hotel Receptionists
6.) About 15-minute walk away in one shore where you could visit any time of the day for a good sea view NOT so UNIQUE Qualities:
1.) Billiard Hall on upper floor plus Bar / Restaurant (Many locals and hotel guests visit this place at night time)
2.) Internet Place at the Lobby
3.) Indian Restaurant at the ground floor
4.) Indian Club on second floor (with Female Indian dancers on stage - of course!)
5.) NO good restaurants to choose from are available outside the hotel (within the vicinity)

Oman Dive Centre

by tdcordial

We will be in Muscat for just one day next month. How far is the Dive Centre from the port of Muscat?

Re: Oman Dive Centre

by DSwede

By the port of Muscat, do you mean the one that is in Mutrah?

Which dive center? do you mean the Oman Dive Center?
http://www.omandivecenter.com/EN_Home_Location.php

I drove this distance before and agree with the web page that it is about 20 minutes from downtown Muscat. Add an additional ~15 minutes if coming from Mutrah.

Travel Tips for Muscat

Wadi Bashing

by peaceness98

Unique to Oman- Wadi Bashing can be described as going crazy with a 4x4 in Wadi's or Rockily dry riverbeds in valleys.

The nature (normally secluded areas), animals (suicidal goats, camels and donkeys), and plenty of other 4x4's packed with fun friends make a good mix.

Try it out on your way back from Camping in Rimal Bani Wahiba!:-) 4x4
Strong Rope thingy (in case you need to pull car)
First Aid Kit
Munchies (hey, you'll need the energy!)
Extra tire
Extra gas for the car

As a matter of fact; try it online first (safer, but not as fun i bet):

Info about antique items

by georeiser about Antique items

Antique items which are over 50 years old can not be exported from Oman. Ask the local shops or salesmen if you are not sure.

Note that all baggage are X-ray screened at the airport before you are checking in on the flights. It is wise not to export illegal items out of Oman, even though the screeings are for flight security reasons.

Sablat Al Bustan

by peaceness98 about Al Bustan Palace Hotel

A bus drives you through a road lit by torches, and after a short distance you reach the Sabla (area of gathering in local Omani dialect)

You'll find a traditional set up, complete with tents, swaying palms, the fragrance of frankincense and sweet smell of rose water. Live folk dances are performed including the traditional sword dance. Women can have their hands and feet decorated in henna

Unless you know locals who can invite you over for dinner, i recommend trying this place out- not just for the food (because home cooked is always better) but because of the ambeince.

If Al Bustan (a 5 star hotel) is too expensive for your budget, try visiting the newly opened Omani Cuisine Restaurant in older Muscat, near Sidab (and near al bustan), right behind the Sultan's Palace. -rice with meat, chicken, grilled fish.
- bbq's on a stick (Mashakeek)
- Shwaa (a local BBQ which is spiced and covered with banana leaves then dug under the earth to cook in the heat of the earth for three nites- much tastier than it sounds). One of my personal favourites, and you normally only eat it in celebrations.

- local bread (such as Rikhal), and possibly some popular Indian bread (Chapati, paratta)

-Omani Qahwa (i.e. coffee, very bitter) complimented with Omani dates and Omani Halwa {local sweet)

- Fresh Laban (Yoghurt drink)
