My wife and i decided to check out something new,location-wise,and hotel-wise,so we settled on having a look at the new Sifawy Boutique Hotel,which was offering a 'Soft opening' It's located about 78 Kms on the west-side of Muscat.
Finding the hotel was no problem,but the last 30-odd Kms is on and through mountain roads,the roads are good,but can be a bit scary for the Lady wife! It's impassable by large buses,ordinary saloon cars are okay,with some lovely sights of Fjords,and villages along the way.
We were greeted at the hotel by the staff,who we both found to be very warm,and friendly,and were shown to our room.
The room was found to be very spacious with a separate living room area,large bathroom,and balcony,but the best of all was the bed! One of the most comfortable that my wife and i have experienced!
The hotel is into 'Fusion' food,which i myself am not,but there are places one can eat 'Normal' food if one wishes to do so.
The hotel has like all hotels have to offer,pool,etc, but what it also offers is a state of the art marina,complete with electricity,both single,220v,three phase400v,both @ 50 Hzs,and fresh water,i was impressed with the marina,which also offers a very easy access to in and out to the sea.
Presently,they are in the process of building a PGA golf course, and i am looking forward to them calling me when its ready for a 'Soft opening'!
Overall,we were both impressed with the place,and most of all with the staff,who did their utmost to make our stay more comfortable.
We most definitely make another visit soon.
Recommend to get there from Muscat via the ferry service that they offer,rather than by car,you might catch a glimpse of some dolphins on the way!
Overall,it was a 'New' experience for us both,and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Suggest you all go and have a look yourselves!
