Al Bustan Palace to get Six Senses Spa

Six Senses Spas has officially signed a partnership agreement to operate a world-class spa at the Al Bustan Palace InterContinental Muscat. Set amongst Oman’s Hajjar Mountains and adjacent to the property’s palatial grounds, the spa boasts spectacular ocean and mountain views. The Six Senses Spa, with an area of more than 3,500 square metres,  will be  set over two floors and will include 16 treatment rooms, gentlemen and ladies private facilities and a Ladies Only Club featuring a private beach accessible only from the club. It will also feature a private gym, relaxation spaces and temperature controlled swimming pool plus a combination of wet, dry and hammam treatment rooms. Amongst the special features  will be  cave treatment rooms, a meditation cave room and couples treatment rooms with colour and sound therapy bath tubs. The public areas of the spa include a yoga pavilion, consultation rooms and a beach club for spa guests, which will be separate from the hotel and ladies club. A general relaxation area features regular and majalis style seating. Also included are communal spaces for manicure and pedicure, a fresh juice bar and more private areas such as sound pods in which guests can cocoon themselves with music and lighting. The Six Senses Spa at Al Bustan Palace Intercontinental Muscat Oman is expected to officially open by mid 2011.

  1. Any word on if we can charge it to our room and earn priority club points? With all of the promo’s, being able to earn PC points would make this extremely enticing!

  2. Shame we have to wait to 2011 for the six senses spa but by the sounds of it i think it will be worth the wait!
