We stayed in Lanavilla recently and we can recommend it very much. We didnt expect to find such a nice place in Muscat. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They explained us a lot about Oman, the culture and the places of interest. The rooms were clean and cosy. They are not that big, but enough for couple of... More

This was our second visit to lovely Muscat and a great B&B. Our room, with en-suite, was bright, clean and comfortable and the air conditioning, ceiling fan and a quiet, residential location meant we slept very well. The cheerful Victoria cooked our lovely breakfasts and the ability to be able to make a drink and have a snack throughout the... More

He gave many great tips and helped arrange my 4*4 car hire at a very competitive price. I arrived mid morning, but there was no problem with me being allowed to use... More

We stayed only one night at Lanavilla in January 2014, and had a great experience. The house is beautiful and big, situated on a street across from the beach. The staff is very welcoming and helpful in navigating Muscat and Oman. We had a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the water - very clean. The staff did our laundry... More

Overall Lanavilla provides a high-quality B & B experience, including many extra niceties, e.g., a full-size guest kitchen to store drinks and our leftovers which we could heat up for subsequent lunches and dinners, free WiFi (ground floor only) as well as use of a decent computer in the common room, free local phone calls, free coffee/tea/bottled water available 24/7,...

Located next to the Chedi where you can go at night to drink a beer or gin tonic. Lanavilla offers a relaxed environment for a good price. The living room and terraces are nice and you have wifi. The host was friendly and very helpful.
