“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

This is a fantastic place for the value, and feels more like a home than a hotel. The beach across the street is nice, but not really for swimming or sunbathing because of the proximity of Muslim fishermen. If you aren't looking for a resort this is absolutely the place to go.

We spent 5 nights here and were 100% satisfied with our visit. Excellent value for money! The drawing room and dining areas are very comfy and the rooftop terrace delightful for a morning meditation or evening sunset. The rooms are tidy, clean and tastefully decorated. At night the place is quiet and serene. The continental breakfast was hardy and a great way to start each day; the house cleaning women had great smiles and were very accommodating. Finally, the host, Oliver, went above and beyond the call of duty, arranging cabs, guides, car rentals, adventure seeker advice and general information at the drop of a hat. He had a full house with all rooms books and when we were there and the whole place ran smoothly. He was always eating breakfast with the guests each morning, answering questions and making casual conversation. He even dined out with us one night, loaned us a phone and invited us to a marching band event honoring the Sultan at the opera house! Highly recommended. Would return again in a heartbeat.

Nice house close to the Big Mosque. Oliver is very friendly and both housegirls are kind as well.
Free access to drawing room on the ground floor with sofas, computer, wifi and coffee/tea and plenty of tips (places to go to, restaurants, roads, ...).
Graeat breakfast which can be eaten inside ou outside.
Just a pity that there is so much water in the bathroom when having one's shower (curtain is not large enough).

We spent 4 nights in Lanavilla and we liked it a lot. The service is excellent, everything was at hand or prearranged - we arrived at the airport at midnight and there was a taxi driver waiting for us, the rental car was brought to the B&B´s doors in the morning, breakfast was decent, internet access was a big help and Oliver (=Mic) was always willing to give us a recommendation on where to go and what to do. The only thing I did not like was that we had to use the A/C all night long (and it was a bit noisy) as our room at the highest floor got extremely hot during the day. On the other hand, we cannot think of a better place to stay while visiting Muscat.

The whole atmosphere in Lana Villa is very nice especially when you are starting your trip in Oman.

The family house like Lanavilla provides you not only with nice ans quite spacious rooms, furthermore the host provides a lot of information for trips in an around Muscat. In this setting, you get in contact with other travelers quite easily.

We enjoyed the friendly and supportive staff and will be back for sure ....

I stayed 1 night in Lanavilla and it was really great. I liked the warm welcome en I felt at home immediately. They can arrange a taxi or car for you, there is internet available, a small supermarkt nearby, the beach is across the street and it's very relaxing to sit and read a book in the garden. The breakfast is delicious and they help you with everything. I liked my stay very much.

Spent 3 nights here. A lovely small B&B run by Mic, the German owner. The rooms were clean, tidy and are nicely decorated. The terrace roof was great to sit and watch the sunset. The housekeeping girls were really welcoming, friendly and during breakfast, cooked my eggs perfectly. The breakfast was simple yet satisfying. I would happily stay here again when I am next in Muscat. I also like Mic's idea of the little cards, for taking with you to help find a particular restaurant from the recommendations book!

Room Tip: Ask for a "Sea View" - a lovely view
