Its my first time in Muscat and this hotel just treated me right. So relaxing and a perfect getaway. The customer service is so good they checked me in early before 12pm and checked me out at 3:30 pm which was perfect. I asked for a free upgrade to a beach view they refused doing that for free. The breakfast... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this resort. The hotel is part of a complex off 3 hotels. The Al Husn is aimed at couples. It is a peaceful and relaxing hotel. There is a nice infinity pool and a private beach. There are more than enough sunbeds at the pool and/or beach. If you stay at the beach you... More

While lounging by the pool, staff bring you a complimentary esky (ice box) with ice cold juice,water and evian face spray. Cocktails, canapés and traditional music complete the day and... More

Absolutely fantastic attention to detail. Personal Cooler boxes with cold refreshments at the pool. Cold face cloths that are offered to you regularly. Sumptuous breakfast. Superb service. If this is 5 star, not sure what extras 6 or 7 stars could do. Treat yourself and you will not be disappointed.
