It's a 40 minute drive from the airport. Love the setting of greens around. Good staff at reception and food was nice. Spa is the highlight. Pool is fine but service slow. The main dining restaurant is lovely with glass on all sides and the view superb. It was a rainy day and quite pleasant . A good mediation room... More

The tagline for this resort is 'Fivestar Naturally'; this is where the 5 star rating ends. From the outset the resort service started out poorly, upon arrival there was no parking inside the resort due to an event, therefore the only option for resident guest was to park 5 minutes walk away in the sun, despite the resort claiming Valet...

The check-in was slow and the desk staff was rude and unconcerned. However the rest of the stay was nice. It is in the middle of nowhere which is nice, but the taxi driver had a very difficult time locating it. Off the beaten path. Make sure you have good directions for any taxi driver if you're arriving at Muscat... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Al Nahda Resort during March. The resort was a chance discovery while browsing through places looking for a different place to stay. The resort is around 40 minutes drive form the Seeb airport and taxis charge 15 omani riyals. On entering the resort, the sheer greenery of the resort and the scent of the... More

We stayed for a night to celebrate our Valentine and it was flawless! We should thank Mr. Afsal Ahmad the Duty Manager for making our stay very pleasant and memorable.

When we arrived at 6pm the hotel after a long and confusing drive, we checked in at the reception. We asked for an extra room because we came with three people instead of two like we booked. They told us it was fully booked so they would set up the sofa bed. After calling twice they brought the sofa bed... More
