The Radisson SAS Hotel, Muscat is in the Al Khuwair district close to Shatti Al Qurum, the main diplomatic and commercial centre of the city.
Muscat, the charming capital of the Sultanate of Oman, is a city inextricably linked with the sea, with a colourful history that dates back to 2500 BC. Invasions, occupations and different ruling tribes have contributed to Oman's legacy, a land of contrasts, where Bedouins still live in the Wahiba Sands Desert and dolphins, turtles and myriad of marine life swim offshore.
One of the most exciting countries in the world, Oman, or Magan as it was originally called, has links with the sea that go back as far as time itself. Whilst the Egyptians built their pyramids and the Incas developed a civilisation in the Andes, the craftsmen of Mutrah, Sur and Sohar built hundreds of beautiful seafaring vessels. Still an active port, Muscat is inhabited by hospitable and sociable people who make visitors feel at home instantly
