Eating, Drinking and Nightlife

Eating

The food on offer is generally a mixture of Turkish, Indian, Lebanese and pan-Arabic, although Oman does have a distinctive cuisine of its own. Unfortunately trying to find authentic Omani food can be a bit of a challenge as restaurants seem to create dishes that are closer to what they believe their customers will want.

Drining and Nightlife

It is generally preferable to drink bottled water, although tap water is considered to be safe. Alcohol is only available at certain hotels and restaurants that have a licence and it is usually very expensive. Remember that the massive majority of locals are Muslims who abstain from drinking alcohol and as such you should not go expecting a vibrant nightlife.

Ramadan

During the month of Ramadan (approx. 6th June - 5th July 2016. - subject to change), locals will fast during the day. As such, there may be some restrictions on drinking outlets and some restaurants may be closed. However, you’ll still have a variety of dining options within your resort – speak to your travel consultant for more information.
