We recently spent a week at the Al Husn hotel and were absolutely delighted with our choice. This is a stunning hotel with great attention to detail and superb service. The beach and pool were both excellent and the hotel itself showcases the best of Middle Eastern architecture. Exquisite marble and beautiful Arabic design everywhere..it is Dubai without the glitz... More

Shangri La's Barr Al Jissah Resort has 3 hotels. Al Husn is the most sophisticated and the most luxury of these three. We stayed some nights at Al Waha and also int he Al Husn. Al Waha was very nice, is basically the family hotel and we had all what we needed. After moving to Al Husn we saw that... More

This was my second stay at the Shangri-la Al Husn (Jan 2015). I must say that the weather in Oman in Jan 2015 was a very nice 21 degrees Celsius with bright sun shine and clear blue skies. Bring along a thin jacket as it can get chilly in the evening desert breeze. If you are visiting Oman, try to... More

This resort is just amazing: it looked like something you'd see in a James Bond movie! Exotic architecture on a scale I've never seen + beautiful views. It is quite expensive, but your experience here will be a special one. The rooms are spacious with big balconies, usually to a nice view (mine was facing the sea). The bathroom had... More

Dear Drosofila, Thank you for the wonderful description of the resort you have posted on TripAdvisor. I am happy that you have noted the difference of the two beaches and that while Al Husn private beach is kept quiet that you also have access to a wide range of water sports at Al Bandar beach. One of the great things... More

Dear asarabchi, I am happy to read your recommendation for other Muscat residents to take a weekend at the resort to relax and rewind! Most residents tell me that while the resort is only 20 minutes from the city a weekend here is like going on an overseas trip without the flights!!! I am delighted you enjoyed your stay and...

My wife and I were truly impressed by the resort in all aspects. Their attention to detail and getting things right the first time is a true differentiator, as are their knowledgable and invariably cheerful staff. I don't recall where or when we have been greeted and made to feel welcome so frequently at a hotel/resort. It was also remarkable... More

Al Husn is a very relaxing, quiet resort that provides a great service. I found the staff very helpful. The rooms are fairly good-size and each room has a balcony with a sitting area. The first room I was assigned to was overlooking the pool area with a far-away view of the ocean. Not at all what I would pay... More

I have just come back from a beautiful beach resort in Maldives and thought to myself, "Ok, that was a good time of relaxation!" Boy, was I wrong!! This resort is really second to none!!
