Well, yes, there is the acres of beach. Then again there are the four lagoon size pools, not to mention the children's pool. At Al Bustan Palace, providing places for guests to escape the Arabian heat has clearly been a priority. But it's the newly refurbished 164 feet (50 metres) infinity pool that will have you flinging your soul, if not your body, into its blue. With the Hajar Mountains providing a backdrop of aching beauty that ramps up the romance, it's the pool butlers that roam ready to give you your heart's desires.
