Visited this 15-minute away resort months back with a group of friends. Location is very accessible using private car. Entrance fee of 3 riyals per adult is collected upon entry. Water activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, dolphin watching and island hopping can be arranged with instructor. Accommodation (who wants to stay over), swimming pool, restaurants and bar are also... More

We went to the Oman Dive Center several times during the daytime to relax by the beach there. It's very peaceful, women can wear bikinis, there is a restaurant with good food and alcohol can be consumed so it's great option. Popular with tourists and locals. It looked like there were also parties there on weekend evenings. Great place to... More

We booked and stayed here over New Year 15/16. We went specifically to do the PADI courses. The place needs to be considered as two destinations. The hotel and the dive centre. The Hotel is fine. The Cabanas are cute and sort of ethnic (teetering between shabby chic and just broken down!) and great location right on the beach, the... More

We stayed here at the beginning of January. Overall, I would not recommend staying at this resort. However, I'll start with the positives: 1) Fresh, tasty food at the buffet (although vegetarian options were very limited) 2) kitchen staff very friendly, efficient and helpful. On the second night of our stay they very kindly offered to serve me some dahl... More

We used to come here alot when we lived in muscat for a day and would also bring our visitors with us . Nice atmosphere and clean and tidy surroundings . Places to eat and drink are nice nd reasonable prices. Be sure to apply the sun screen frequently if your going to spend the day here .

The beach huts here are a great place to spend a night or two right on the beach. The deal includes dinner and breakfast, both of which were surprisingly good. The hut was comfortable, spacious, and instantly relaxing. Swimming in the bay was great!

We've been to the Oman Dive Centre before, and would still recommend it unreservedly for a laid-back, charming place with attentive restaurant staff and plentiful food. We stayed in a barista hut made from palm fronds etc, and our en suite bathroom was good quality and worked well. The sea was close to the hut and it is great to... More

I have been going to the Dive Centre since 2010 (it has a new name of Muscat Hills Dive Centre now) a day or two there each time once a year. I can't speak for the Dive team/staff ect but feel I can for the 'resort' itself. It has an envious position with a beautiful soft sand beach gently slipping... More
