We had been looking for interesting places in Oman to show my husband's parents who are on a visit here.Since it is the season,we thought we'd try the turtle reserve which we'd not been to either. It was a great experience!The drive to the place itself was interesting cos we stopped by Bimmah sink hole,Wadi Tiwi and the "Pebble beach"... More

We have just returned from an overnight stay at Ras Al Jinz Turtle Reserve where we were lucky enough to be guided to a magical place where Turtles laid and hid their eggs before easing back in to the ocean before sunrise. We witnessed about fifty turtles and were lucky enough to see hatchlings making their way in to the... More

I will not as much review the hotel, which was good, but not anything out of the ordinary, but will tell what an amazing and inspiring experience the staff gave us. Hotel guests were offered two beach outings, 9 pm and 4 am, we did both and had truly unique turtle-watching tours! This was by far the most extraordinary experience... More

What an escape from daily routine at such an affordable price in the mist of nature surrounded by hard rocky mountains, desert, and sea. The sunset and sunrise were mesmerizing. Sleeping in the tents on a star filled night is an experience undefined.

Had a fabulouse stay at the reserve who's moto seems to be pleasing the guests. The experience in the tents was amazing in the middle of the mountains overlooking the water. The hospitality was amazing and the food was outstanding.

First of all, you need to know that the purpose of this facility is turtle observation, not holiday activities. This is why my review is based on this, and not on the accomodation facilities or the restaurant which, anyway, are good enough to spend a comfortable night. There are two tours, one after sunset and another one before sunrise. I... More

Had a breathtaking experience watching the sea turtles... The way they laid eggs was mindboggling. The hospitality and service was up to the mark and the people were really kind. Seriously its a must visit place if you are in Oman!
