Beautiful garden. Main room is stunning. Love the walk under the archs with the shadow and the little breeze, surrounded by the decoration you can perfectly feel the ambience.

One of the best buildings I have ever seen. So beautiful - so much white Italian marble. Make sure you book in for the fantastic free tour guide - such great information given. Highly recommended to all Muscat visitors.
