Our Opinion: The Al Bustan Palace opened in 1985 and has earned a reputation as being one of the best hotels in the Middle East and one of the finest hotels in the world. It is the epitome of luxurious elegance, a spectacular blend of Islamic architecture and contemporary state of the art technology. After a recent refurbishment completed at the end of 2008 the hotel is looking better than ever.
