No Dancers in Less Than 4 Star Establishments in Oman

According to Times of Oman today, 'The Ministry of Tourism has issued orders that "dance groups" would not be allowed to perform in hotels or nightclubs across the nation that have less than four-star rating. ' One reason sited was to stop 'pick-up' joints. In addition, all groups must only have three members and call themselves 'talented group of artists' and conclude their performances by midnight.

There are bars and clubs around Oman with dancers hailing from India, Yemen, Morocco and Africa. Many of these establishments are found in the Ruwi section of Muscat. I have heard reports of Omani families complaining about licentious going ons of girls with Omani and other gentlemen making connections outside of bars in Omani neighborhoods with families and children especially near Al Khwair area in Muscat.  However, many of the hotels around there are 4+ stars.

A couple of years ago, allegedly a Russian woman working at the dance bar at a main hotel in Buraimi was found dead in the swimming pool. And, the non-beach front 'wadi' hotel has a reputation in Sohar.

    1. The last thing Oman needs to become is a place for sex-starved tourists to visit, or for those men looking for one-night, casual pleasure trysts. I'm sure Omani Tourism will survive w/o that kind of tourist(s).
      Surely, one doesn't need to go all the way to Oman looking for hedonistic satisfaction.

  2. A good step to help curb the blatant human trafficking that is happening in Oman. Dear all expats who 'use' the services of these trafficked humans. Think about the crime you are supporting. These girls have no freedom, and have no choice. They are beaten, killed and drugged.

    Stop human trafficking in Oman. Stop yourself from participating in it.
