What a fantastic spot! The beauty of the seafront, the comfort and fun of the pools and facilities coupled by the wide range of delicious food is only surpassed by the kindness of the employees. Back this time with just my 4 year old he, the most critical judge, is thrilled with his trip. Thank you.

My husband and I stayed here recently to celebrate our anniversary for 2 nights. Everything at the hotel was top notch - I must also mention that Al Husn put on the most impressive breakfast buffet that I have ever seen! Did not eat dinner at the hotel, so I cannot speak to that. Service was also amazing - the... More

We decided to stay at the Shangri La after reading some top-notch reviews on this site. The Shangri-La has two key strengths which are its location and its employees. The resort is located on a beautiful beach with impressive cliffs and coves, together with amazing views of the sea. We found the staff very outgoing and friendly, eager to get... More

Wonderful place to go for some r&r. The hotel is divided into sections for family with young kids, adults with or without bigger kids and a couples only part. If you stay in one part you do not see the other sites. There is no need to go to the other sites. Every hotel part has plenty of beach and... More

We spent our Easter holidays at the resort in the Al Husn part. Excellent service, great views, high quality food but the overall complex is too big and somehow vaguely remembers Las Vegas. Having said that the location is breathtaking and the quality is top.

We spent four days at Al-Husn just to confirm this is one of our favourite resorts in the Middle East. A superb location, wonderful rooms, charming restaurants and a cozy private beach just for Al-Husn guests (which means no children) makes this place a real paradise.
