First of all, today is the 44th Renaissance day for Oman, and everyone is looking forward to the bumper 10-day holiday that starts tonight!

Now, since the news of the long holiday broke earlier this week, people have been trying to book vacations, and I'm sure quite a few of you (me included) have been shocked at just how much it's costing to get on a plane out of Oman at the moment. Even hotels in Dubai have cranked up their fees for next week. Supply and demand I guess!

With this is mind, and an entire week off, why not consider one of the local hotels for a short break? Here's a list of some local hotels and what they are offering (I'll update this as I hear back from hotels if you want your hotel included - its free! just email me on mrsythe[at]!):
