Scenically wedged between mountains and ocean, with old forts and excellent museums, an opera house and flower-filled parks, the gentle city of Muscat is a delight to visit.

As a result, it's home to the largest selection of resorts and activities - from hiking in Morne Seychellois National Park to diving in pristine sites.
