Arrived early, room was available, offered a cold towel and soft drink and things just got better from there. Escorted to the room and briefed on hotel restaurants and facilities. The room was very good, complimentary mini bar, fresh fruit and every little extra that you expect in a high end luxury hotel. Even the balcony had a settee along... More

This wonderful resort is really gorgeous. I really had a great experience until it was all RUINED by the attitude of the duty manager "Rasha El Diwany" at the check out. First of all, when I made my booking through Shangri-La, I saw that the hotel can arrange arrival/departure transfer since the hotel is around 50 minutes from the airport.... More

Excellent stay. Service was outstanding, staff very friendly and welcoming. If you just want to get away and relax on the beach or by the pool, this is the place. Breakfast was delicious, went out of their way to make me a steak every morning. We will come back. My only negative comment is the price for dinner, a bit... More

The hotel was great. I stayed there for two nights. They catered for a honeymoon welcome package. Some of the walkways had some signs of wear, but overall the hotel was very clean, and the service was impressive.

I write this review retrospectively.... Having visited this place on at least half a dozen times, it is one of my favourite places in the world. It boasts 7 stars, but then what is there above an exceptionally run 5 star deluxe hotel? This is an adults only place and that's kind of nice if you're alone or with a... More

Stayed at the Al Husn for a week following two personal recommendations. The resort, which is located on the coast approximately 45 minutes by car from Muscat airport, boasts three hotels overall and a number of restaurants offering a good variety of cuisine. Everything you need in the resort is reachable on foot. The Al Husn is impressively located and... More

Overall, I was not impressed by this resort as a whole. Reminded me of the family trips to Spain in the 70s. However, credit where credit is due, the room we had was lovely and many aspects of this hotel were nice.Soft drinks in the mini bar are free, nice touch, and free wii fii, as it should be. But...

Dear lisa026, Thank you for reviewing both Al Waha and Al Husn on TripAdvisor in regards to your recent visit to the resort, by reading both reviews it appears that the resort did not really suit your personal preferences. While we do our best to highlight the three independent hotels that make up the resort I am sorry that you... More
