Melissa & I had only a 2 night stay en route back to the uk from Sri Lanka. Oliver and co. made us very welcome and gave us all the "local knowledge" we required. The location is great for the airport and all of the "Must Do" locations in Muscat. (Not too close to the airport that you get the... More

I stayed for 2 nights in December 2013 before setting off on a tour of Oman. From the time of booking, communication from Oliver the owner was excellent. He gave many great tips and helped arrange my 4*4 car hire at a very competitive price. I arrived mid morning, but there was no problem with me being allowed to use... More

We stayed only one night at Lanavilla in January 2014, and had a great experience. The house is beautiful and big, situated on a street across from the beach. The staff is very welcoming and helpful in navigating Muscat and Oman. We had a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the water - very clean. The staff did our laundry... More

Robert/Miriam, Beirut and NY. We've wandered all over the world, and you won't find friendlier comfort anywhere. Good breakfast, great staff, clean rooms, lovely local beach, wi-fi downstairs, interesting grown-up guests. A rental car is helpful but $5 cab ride to great Indian restaurants, great local grilled fish place just steps down the Corniche, Pakistani paratha around the corner, food... More

I had a great stay at Lanavilla. It was a safe area and close to the beach. Very clean and comfortable. Oliver (the owner) was very helpful with suggestions of where to go and what to see. I would stay there again.

Overall Lanavilla provides a high-quality B & B experience, including many extra niceties, e.g., a full-size guest kitchen to store drinks and our leftovers which we could heat up for subsequent lunches and dinners, free WiFi (ground floor only) as well as use of a decent computer in the common room, free local phone calls, free coffee/tea/bottled water available 24/7,...

Located next to the Chedi where you can go at night to drink a beer or gin tonic. Lanavilla offers a relaxed environment for a good price. The living room and terraces are nice and you have wifi. The host was friendly and very helpful.

This is a fantastic place for the value, and feels more like a home than a hotel. The beach across the street is nice, but not really for swimming or sunbathing because of the proximity of Muslim fishermen. If you aren't looking for a resort this is absolutely the place to go.
