Oman, a holiday destination? Would you rather travel to Dubai or Abu Dhabi if you are looking for a few days off in the Middle East? A mix of luxury, opulence, adventure and nature, Oman is slowly moving up the ladder on the places to visit list for many European travelers. These pictures below speak a thousand words. Once seen, you can decide for yourself what kind of destination you would like to call Oman.
For the last few months the team at THC has been very busy planning the logistics for a destination wedding in Muscat, Oman. A few months ago we also wrote about Muscat being awarded the second best city to visit in the world in 2012 by Lonely Planet.
We worked day-in and day-out to make the wedding experience, the travel and stay for 500 plus wedding guests as comfortable as possible. From coordinating visas, rooming and flight requirements; crafting all communication going out to the guests including managing the wedding Instagram page; to the working with the gracious and kind team at the Ritz Carlton Al Bustan Palace property; to managing the hospitality desk for the wedding. The overall experience was just magnificent and we enjoyed every minute of it!
When we think of luxury holidays, wedding destinations, ultra-modern architecture, lively night life and shopping in the Middle East, the first destination that would probably come to mind would be UAE and of course Dubai.
Besides UAE, if you are wondering where else will you get a great holiday experience in the Middle East, you could potentially look at Muscat, the capital of Oman.
The Sultanate of Oman over the past few years has developed as a strategic partner for India in the Gulf region. Both countries enjoy warm and cordial relations, which can be ascribed to historical maritime trade linkages, intimacy of the Royal family with India and the seminal role of the Indian expatriate community in the building of Oman. And of course the two countries are linked by geography, history and culture.
