Salaam Wale-kum and Hello

I have got an opportunity to work for a Co in Sohar,Oman.
Can anyone help me with the cost of Living for a Couple. I come from the 'Back Office of the World' city in India, i.e Bangalore so am used to the cosmopolitan life.
Any guidance of Accomodation of 2 Bedroom, Living Room Apartment with Utilities, Restaurant Prices, Movie Tickets, Car Rentals, type of expenses would help me to plan it accordingly.

I am a Maintenance Consultant by profession. Thanks for your help in advance.
