In the silence of the moonlit night, the galaxy turns on her twinkling lights, while softly, the huge Green Turtles lay their white, ping pong sized, soft shell eggs, into labourously dug out 3 foot deep sandpits, with their hind flippers. In utter wonderment do we hang on to every whispered word of our Guide, Nasser, as he enlightens us... More

To see a female turtle make her nest, lay eggs and then the little baby hatchlings making a dash for the sea, is an amazingly privilege to be able to see in person. The hotel on the reserve is clean, the staff friendly and whole overnight stay was uncomplicated. The room itself, I would grade as a 3 star by... More

Was zeroing on the places to visit in Oman for my wife's Bday and stumbled upon Ras Al Jinz Turtle Reserve...it was a beautiful experience watching the process of Turtles laying eggs, going back to sea n baby turtles making their way to sea. We were upgraded to the Luxury Eco tents and that was very good place to stay... More

The hotel is clean and simple. People in the hotel are very nice and the guides are expert and very nice. If you go there you go to see the Turtles because there is nothing else around. Inside the hotel there is also a nice small museum about turtles.

An amazingly intimate experience (just myself, my partner and a guide) watching the sun rise as the baby turtles make their dash for the sea. We went in the off season (August) and were the only residents in the tents and the only attendees at the 4am guided Turtle session. I cannot recommend this experience enough - though the tented...

The minute we reached Ras al-Jinz Turtle Reserve, we could immediately feel the care and efforts being put in by the staff to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We were pretty tired by the time we reached the reserve at 6PM, but were quickly re-energized with the evening tea and snacks platter waiting for us in our rooms.... More

There is only one reason you will track all the way down the Arabian coast.....for the amazing scenes of the turtles! The hotel is clean, staff friendly and service decent.

Great overall experience and insight into the nesting process. The tours were informative and the museum had well documented information about the turtles and the reserve. You are in close proximity to the turtles and can see all the stages of the nesting process. However I do feel like more efforts can be put into conserving the beach - the... More

certainly the best hotel in Sur! the only factor you need to take into consideration is the proximity to the turtle beach. This hotel is at a walking distance from the beach which makes it much more convenient to go to the beach at the night and the dawn times. moreover hotel guests have a higher priority than the others...
