Nice, quiet and beautiful location! Food was average. Room was very nice and spacious. Best part of the hotel complex is the lazy river with the inflatable tubes! Overall, the place is alright, nothing too special.

A birthday treat for myself and I must say, it was worth every penny! I booked the Deluxe Sea View room- where I could see the sea from my bathroom! Free non-alcoholic drinks from the mini-bar, evening canapes before dinner, private beach with your cooler filled with drinks and fruits. It was a perfect escape in the best hotel with... More

We were given this honeymoon stay as a wedding gift. Hotel is located in between the rocky coastline of Oman and has amazing views. Al Husn truly represents all the luxury that you can dream of in the hotel. It is hard to book any 3star hotel again after this experience. Loved it from A to Z!

We had booked Al Husn for 5 days and extended for another 2 days. I visited and compared with the Shangri-la( Al Wara, Al Banda) those are nice for families with children, but I do not recommend if you are a couple. The Al Husn is exclusive for couples, by far my favourite with a "higher level' than the others,... More

This hotel is my favorite hotel in Oman for Relaxation far from the traffic and city center. note that the facility of this hotel is only for Adults. they are having nice restaurant with best views to the beach. I recommend this hotels for Couples and Business. Choose the highest floor facing the other two hotels

I'm torn here, because one's natural instinct when you find a place such as this is to keep it to yourself in case the world finds out! So it's all superlatives; around a dozen restaurants and bars, all worth visiting, some stunning - e.g. the Piano Lounge with Dicky's world-class cocktails, Capri Court, the Italian spot, and Asia, which serves...

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights last month. Although we had a nice time, the hotel was very quiet (maybe as it was so hot, 40 degrees plus every day). The pool area was lovely but lacked any atmosphere, only a handful of people there every day. it just seemed soul less. The deluxe room was fantastic,... More
