Sublime position. Great location to explore the villages around. Bought some gorgeous handmade rugs from the locals. To avoid disappointment, please remember that the whole experience is about sharing with the locals their simple way of life. If you are looking for a bar and a 5 star experience stay in Muscat!!! The hotel staff and the manager were extremely nice and obliging. I was impressed with their hospitality and gentleness.
