This was our second visit to the Al Husn Hotel at the Shangri-La Resort in Muscat. The first time we were lucky enough to be upgraded to this hotel (the most luxurious of the three hotels on the resort) but this time we didn't want to take the risk and - having experienced the Al Husn on the previous visit...

Stayed for 5 nights in March. We had a standard room which was more than adequate. Good size, superb bed, excellent bathroom. Was spotlessly clean and we enjoyed the daily drop off of bottled water, fresh apples. The pools and beach are well kept, plenty of sunbeds with great pool staff sorting the towels. Also enjoyed the ice boxes supplied... More

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the lovely Shangri La, Al Husn Hotel; it was a beautiful and extremely well run hotel. We have been fortunate enough to stay in many luxury hotels but I don’t think any have been more lovely than Al Husn; every detail, from corridors and walkways to the grand reception area have been...

Spent two nights at this amazing property. Great friendly service, plenty of restaurants to choose from and a wide range of activities for all ages. We went for a snorkelling trip and swam with sea turtles, ate fresh seafood and fantastic lebanese food. Breakfast is served in the all day dining venue, with plenty of choice and pleasant outdoor seating.... More

Dear Gianpiero A, Thank you for sharing your feedback with the readers of TripAdvisor, it is always nice to read when guests say they saw turtles when snorkeling which is quiet common at this time of year as we are well into the turtle nesting season. Thank you for highlighting the food served and the staff service in your review.... More

We stayed here in February. The hotel is a perfect place to escape for a little luxury winter sunshine. The staff are excellent. The restaurants are varied and wonderful. The rooms are top class. The position of this hotel, which is one of three hotels in the resort is fantastic, with great views in all directions. It would be unfair... More

Although I have not stayed overnight in the hotel, I want to recommend the Bait Al Bahr Restaurant. It´s a very nice and romantic place for an excellent dinner. The restaurant is also close to the beach. If you want to sit outside on the terrace you better make a reservation in advance. Prices are on higher side - but... More

I really enjoyed my week at the Shangri-la Al Husn. This is the higher end offering of the 3 hotels in the complex but having visited the dining facilities of the other 2 I have to say that I would have been happy with the standard of any of them. The promise of private beach and no children was what... More

Paradise by the sea. Beautiful property with amazing views, amenities, and people. Huge room and delicious room service. Loved the Morrocan restaurant, liked the Lebanese as well but slow service, they knew this and sent us an extra salad, dessert and also apologized so maybe they were short staffed that night. Unfortunately when we were here it rained the 2nd... More
