From treatments to wellness programmes Six Senses Spa at Al Bustan Palace, A RitzCarlton Hotel offers treatments that go beyond the ordinary. What really makes the place different from any ordinary spa is the surrounding landscape of towering stones and rock cliffs of the Hajar Mountains that follows the natural progression of the valley.

Six Senses Spa was built to reflect the traditional Omani designs which feature domed ceilings, ancient arched walkways, columns and water channels. The spa resembles an ancient Arabian fort with a heavy wooden door at the entrance leading to a smaller entryway. The spa features a large reception area, two wellness consultation rooms, 17 treatment rooms which includes spa facilities for both men and women along with a ladies’ only private club. spa-The_Cave_[6416-A4]
