We had a sea facing room at the far end of a long corridor (a good walk!) spacious well equipped, very good beds, lovely view, good bathroom with separated toilet and shower, plenty of hanging space and the mini bar with soft drinks and beer was complimentary as are the 6pm drinks and afternoon tea. The adults only policy only... More

The Al Husn is an exceptional hotel with luxury, great service and a peaceful atmosphere.With the other 2 hotels on sight the choice of restaurants is very good and activities available if wanted.

If it was possible, I would give the Al Husn 6*s, Everything about the Al Husn is absolutely perfect and delivered with high quality/standards. What I want to highlight with my review is that as a couple, we highly valued that the Al Husn has a no kid policy. Not that we don't like kids, we have them, but on... More

The hotel is stunning and the service is great. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel special. The pool, beach, restaurants etc are excellent. Pool side, being brought water, juice & face spray are nice touches. Afternoon tea is a nice touch but unfortunately we never made it as we were enjoying the sun at that time.... More

Three hotels make up this complex, I am reviewing Al Husn. Perched on the hillside overlooking the sea and the rest of the resort this hotel has its own private pools and beach. The rooms are huge and luxurious and included lots of lovely extras, extravagant breakfasts, free afternoon tea, every evening drinks reception and free full mini bar (... More

A day ticket provides you with pool and sea swimming, complementary towels, water and fruit and a magnificent choice of food for brunch from typical Omani dishes through to roast meats via salad and cheese courses topped with a choice from the 'pudding room'

Stayed here for two days with the husband for a quiet getaway. Ideal to spend quality time with your significant other. The nicest of the three hotels at Shang, extra perks compared to the others are a great a-la carte breakfast menu, free mini-bar, no kids at the hotel's pool and a private beach exclusively for Al Husn residents.

10月末に、彼氏と3泊4日 滞在しました。 プールと海に面した素敵なお部屋を用意していただき、あまりにも眺めが素敵なので、滞在中の夕食はバルコニーでルームダイニングを楽しみました。 プールは日中大して混雑することもなく、水の音だけが静かに聞こえる素敵な空間でした。ジャグジーも日本人好みの熱めのお湯で、プールで冷えた体にとても心地よかったです。 ビーチでは、シュノーケルキットを貸していただけるので、一日中楽しむことができます。潮が引いた後は、岩陰でカニの観察もできました! ホテルのスタッフのホスピタリティは100点満点だと思います。 施設内ですれ違う誰もが笑顔で挨拶してくれるので、清々しい気持ちになります。 (中東でこれができるということは、それだけ教育が徹底されているということです。) アフタヌーンティも無料ながら、混雑することもなくスタッフの方々がもてなしてくださいます。 滞在中に体調を崩し、内線電話でコンシェルジュの方に医療施設について尋ねたのですが、その後すぐに在中のお医者様からお電話いただき、お部屋で内診していただくことができました。その場で必要なお薬も処方していただけ、残りの滞在を心ゆくまで楽しむことができました。 アルフスンの値段の高さに、最初は施設内の他のホテルにしようかと迷いましたが、出し惜しみせず本当に良かったです!笑 お値段の価値以上の滞在でした。カップルでホテルでゆっくりしたい方にオススメです。 I stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend and we didn't want to leave! Everything was excellent, especially the hospitality skills of the staff there. From the receptionist to the cleaner, all stuff there greets you with genuine smile, which we've got impressed.
