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

We much enjoyed our 3 night (extended) stay, while diving with Extra Divers at the near by Shangri-La. The formula of simple but comfortable barasti huts on the beach is really appealing and well executed. Wonderful to drop off to sleep to the sound of waves lapping on the sand. The inclusive breakfast and dinner buffets offer reliable but unexciting... More

We had a lovely stay in this hotel with our baby for 3 nights. The hotel has an amazing setting in a beautiful bay, with a fantastic beach. The rooms (barista huts) are all set on the beach. very basic, but clean and a very nice semi outdoor bathroom. The buffet (breakfast and dinner) is one of the best we... More

Best diving near Muscat and you can make a day of it with a great beach, good bar and decent snacks. I loved the sea, first time I've been able to just lie back and float :) Didn't stay here so can't comment on rooms or service.

Yesterday a group of 6 of us wanted to escape muscat for the day and paid our 2omr to spend the day here. It's a stunning location with a beautiful sandy beach, plenty of sunbeds and clear blue sea. We all ate lunch which was lovely and the beach bar provided us with drinks throughout the day. The place is... More

The facilities at the Oman Dive Center need work. Dive staff are very accomodating and professional; Lother, Matheus and Denise do a great job of guiding and instructing students while focusing on safety and guests. However, the facilities and upkeep of the center need work. They talk about first impressions, and when driving through the gate the first greeting is... More
