We have just arrived back after a weeks stay at Al Husn , we had actually booked to stay at Al Bandar but on arrival at near to midnight and feeling tired we were offered an upgrade to Al Husn for a very reasonable price and this proved to be a very good decision . The rooms are very spacious... More

The hotel location is amazing I would say its in the heaven. The staff was really hospital. The food was tasty and fresh everyday, the issue was with the hotel's management who never showed up when needed and the rooms are old design with carpet, sometimes turn down service sometimes NO. As a suggestion you should light up all the... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Huge rooms with free mini bar. Combine that with free afternoon tea then it's actually really good value. Great pool and private beach. We went on a dolphin cruise and saw lots of them! Seeing the baby turtles was also an amazing experience. Best breakfast choice I have ever had. Literally every food you could... More

I know we are in a minority of guests who didn't enjoy the experience at Al Husn. Usually I am keen to share our thoughts immediately on return from a holiday. We visited in May, which is over 4 months ago. We arrived prior to our room being ready, the person who checked us in told us they would call... More

Where shall I start, very friendly and professional check-in, beautiful spacious speciality suite (1504) on the 4th floor with a beautiful view over the bay. All the restaurants are nice and the food is good. The ambiance in the Asian restaurant is not very nice as it is quite big with high ceiling. The beach and beach service is very... More

As Husn was really the best hotel we have ever been to. It has an amazing attention to details and the service is impeccable. Though we have stayed for just 1 night, it turned into one of the highlights of our winter vacation in Oman. Highly recommended for an exclusive experience!

We stayed for 5 nights at the Al Husn and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had previously stayed at the Chedi but preferred Al Husn because of the larger choice of dining available. We went for our wedding anniversary and requested a high floor. We were not bothered about a sea view so had the Deluxe room which overlooked the pool... More

The locals and workers at the other hotels describe Al Husn as a six-star hotel. And they are not far from being right. The venue, part of a three hotel complex, is situated on the rock overlooking the resort. Built with panache and gusto it resembles a horseshoe with the main pool in the middle. There is a private beach... More
