I spent one night at the Oman Dive Center. I was a female traveling alone through Oman and this was my last night of an amazing vacation. Everything was perfect. The accommodations were traditionally rustic but with all the amenities needed (and not needed, no TV etc). My room was right on the beach, about a 10 second walk to... More

The Dive Centre is in a beautiful location - with its own private bay. The huts are good with air conditioning and an attached, but semi-outdoor bathroom. You do really get back to nature here with potentially lots of insect life but this is part of the fun! The food was OK - buffet style, but not amazing. The food... More

In a beautiful location, away from technology.. No TV, no internet, nothing to interrupt enjoying the magical scenery of mountains and sea.. Switch off and chill out.. Great weather till mid of March.

Less than 30 min drive from Mascate and a feeling of being in a much more remote place, with a very nice white sand beach and blue water. Nice traditional accommodation, good (buffet) food. Two disappointments: unwelcoming staff of hotel + dive center, and water activities quite limited : we wanted to hire sea kayaks, and they only had one... More

Second time around we went there with our family. As somebody who stays in the bulk standard Sherathons and Hiltons of this world this place is heaven. Staff: Reception staff very helpfull, restaurant staff ditto, diving staff great specially Denise! Accomodation: the hotel is an 80s (?) building, the parking lot is a bit of a mess and the rooms...

I originally booked a three day diving, but after first day of diving, I decided that two days would be plenty. A pleasant enough place to stay, but diving not particularly spectacular. On my next trip to Oman I will dive at the Damaniyat Islands, as meant to be amazing. The manager Lothar was okay - lacked personal skills, but... More

Popped in briefly one day for lunch and then next day for a longer beach stay followed by lunch. Looks to be very popular with day trippers from Muscat as well as longer term visitors. The staff were friendly and the view was great. Lunch was decent and served relatively quickly. Club sandwich was tasty, as was the Arabic mezze.... More

This is my first visit to Oman and I totally fell in love. A Muslim, Arabic country could only be this much friendly and beautiful. Being a tourist, you are very welcome in the country by following only a couple of simple rules (like alcohol hours, respecting to local living, etc.). Oman Dive Center is a very nice resort especially... More

This was our third visit to the resort and i must say that every trip has been really enjoyable. The accomodation could do with a bit of upgrading and WI-FI would be an added advantage. The Staff were generally all very pleasant and the food was of a good standard.

In anticipation of my 1 month visit to Oman, I wrote to the dive centre & corresponded with Lothar Schüller,  Dive Center Manager. I planned to do a 10 dive package. The centre has a great location on a private beach, sheltered in a large bay "next door" to Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort. My first chat was with PADI... More
