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.
