Oman Grand Chapitre – Thursday March 12, 2020

Bailliage National du Sultanat d’Oman

Chapitre dinner at the Al Bustan Palace, A Ritz-Carlton hotel


Dear Friends and fellow members,


10 years ago, a group of gourmets residing in the Sultanate of Oman took the initiative to establish a brand new Bailliage, centred in the capital, Muscat. As the country was increasingly being discovered by global tourism with its diverse landscapes of mountains and deserts, over a 1000 km of pristine beaches, numerous hidden wadis and abundant wildlife, new hotels had been built in the Capital Area to supplement several traditional favourites.

This provided the nascent Bailliage of the Sultanate of Oman a solid basis to offer its members and guests the ability to discover the joys of the table and the pleasure of sharing a meal with like-minded friends. In this tradition we will celebrate our 10-year anniversary at our Chapitre gala dinner on 12 March 2020 in the Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton hotel. To help us celebrate our birthday we would be thrilled if members of our neighbouring Bailliages would be able to join us for this special weekend. To this end, General Manager of the Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton hotel, and Maître Hôtelier, Katrin Herz, and her team are delighted to invite you to our anniversary Chapitre gala dinner in the Beach Pavilion Bar and Grill.

Details of the dinner are as follows:
