Our fourth visit to Al Husn, and first since Covid. This time we booked directly with the hotel and found this to be a positive experience, with excellent pre travel communication and special requests attended to happily. Wonderful welcome upon arrival and taken to our delightful room as soon as we’d checked in. Cleanliness and attention to detail cannot be improved upon. Very few changes…afternoon tea and cocktail hour remain a wonderful part of the day, and breakfast is as sensational as ever! But the service, from all employees, is phenomenal, and the absolute strength of Al Husn and its uniqueness…we’re already planning our next trip. Thank you ☺️

Hotel's Favorite
Just spent 2 lovely nights at Al Husn. The pool and beach areas offered a beautiful place to sunbath, swim, or SUP board and kayak. Afternoon tea was delicious and even better was the cocktail hour with live music. All the staff here makes you feel like royalty. Sanu, the mixologist, was especially helpful in making the right drink for us...some of the best I ever had. Thank you again Al Husn for another wonderful stay!

I booked 11 nights in “Shangri-la Al-Husn, Muscat” what can i say? It is very hard to fault anything about this hotel. I like the attentive services, generous and well designed hotel. Its got some great facilities, kind staff, Especially the receptionist “Ria & Maymoony” were excellent and the food in the Sultanah restaurant for both breakfast and dinner is of a high standard. The menu was varied and interesting. Everyone at the restaurant was great but “Sandel & Shristy” were, by far, the most helpful and kind. For a high end hotel I was especially impressed by how well the cleaning staff really went out of their way to not only clean the room but organised all my things every night and ensured everything is order. Also, I met one of the greatest stuff there who had to be recognized publicly. The manager of Recreation, Hussein Alblushy, he was phenomenal, and knowledgable about the everything. And he just had this friendly demeanor about everyone that made us all happy. He was respected by all who knew him for his kind and gentlemanly consideration ‎ Much appreciation to the management and all staff members for creating beautiful memories on my birthday! I would certainly come back 🤍

This was our third visit and Shangri-La Al Husn is just as good as it’s always been. As we got out of the car we were met with ‘welcome back Mr and Mrs Brown’ from a number of staff members before we even got to check-in. Check-in was very quick and we were taken straight to our room which was the same room we have had on each previous visits - we would definitely recommend a deluxe sea view room. The whole hotel including the rooms are decorated and furnished to an exceptional standard. As the worldwide tourism industry recovers financially from Covid we wondered whether some of the touches that make the Al Husn unique would have understandably been removed but they haven’t - mini bar continues to be included as well as afternoon tea, cool box with water and juice at the pool and beach and, our personal favourite - aperitif hour between 6pm and 7pm. Whilst all restaurants are yet to re-open this didn’t impact our enjoyment as there are still plenty of options. Since we were last here the SE Asian restaurant has opened which is excellent. We have commented on this before but it must be said again that what makes the Al Husn stand out is the quality of the staff. It’s not an exaggeration to say that every member of staff we met were excellent and went over and above in the standard of service they provide. Particular praise has to go to Said and Chimna at the pool together with Bradley, Alain and Godswill in the Sultanah restaurant. There is absolutely nothing we would change about the Al Husn and this definitely won’t be our last visit.

Our stay here was simply amazing! The hotel itself is exceptionally beautiful with the beach and the pools being stunning. Rooms were great, and the service was top notch. Whatever we needed or asked for was sent across and any requests were attended to almost immediately. We never once heard a no from any of the staff. Always smiling and willing to help. The food was exceptional too, and my husband and I both cannot thank the staff enough at Al Tanoor restaurant. Right from the quality/taste of the food, to the outstanding service - fantastic would be an understatement. Special shout out to Suresh who took care of all of our needs - ensuring to accommodate our request for out of menu food items and making sure we are comfortable (as we are vegetarian) and to chef Murthy, chef Raymond who cooked the absolute best food and also kept checking with us to ensure everything was alright and if we needed anything else. And to Thomus as well - who again took care of us and ensured we had everything we needed. We literally went back to Al tanoor multiple times over the course of our stay - purely and simply because of this team! Thank you :)

The first thing is a beautiful and elegant hotel. The second thing is that the services are beautiful and there are many areas that you can enjoy. As for the reception, Mrs. Stephanie, a beautiful and respectful reception, and she is very caring for the guests, a classy person, and Mrs. Nawara is also understanding and with a degree of knowledge and understanding with the guests. Brother Jassem Al-Hasbi is a kind person. Respectful and helpful, brother Jamil, brother Azel and brother Muhammad, all of them are excellent and beautiful groups and deserve to be commended. I really enjoyed them. They are the beauty of the hotel and I do not forget him. Brother Dixon is also kind and interested in his work. Brother Muhammad is also in room service. They are all very excellent groups. Thank you all.

We stayed here for two nights in May half term and it was the most incredible hotel we have ever stayed in. From the moment I booked to stay the hotel emailed to see if they could help us with anything and noted my gluten free request. When we arrived, our car was parked for us and the 5* hotel experience started. Our room was incredible, with beautiful views and the mini bar was stocked daily with beer and fizzy drinks (refilled daily for free). The swimming pool was beautiful and the lifeguard was on hand to put towels on your sun bed and bring a cooler box to keep your drinks cold round the pool. Waiter service round the pool made sure the cocktails kept flowing and you didn’t have to move off your sun bed (something I appreciated a lot!!) I also really enjoyed the hotel being adult only! It was very quiet and peaceful round the pool and you could really relax. The afternoon tea is included in your stay and the food was delicious with a lovely view. The canapés and drinks reception every evening was also included in your stay and the wine was lovely as were the snacks. A great way to start the evening. We ate the first night in the main restaurant out on the terrace. This was an experience I will never forget. The waiting staff could not do enough for you and the food was amazing. The chef came out to chat during the evening which I have never seen before and it was nice to talk about the food. I am gluten free and everything was offered gluten free and I had a range of food to choose from and dessert!!!! The second night we ate at a Thai restaurant at the sister hotel next door and again the food was delicious. Our hotel helped reserve and table and explained about my allergies and so when we arrived this made ordering food very easy. Breakfast was another meal highlight, with freshly made gluten free pancakes! We also went on a boat trip during our staff to find dolphins and snorkel. This was a great experience and we snorkelled with lots of turtles. This hotel was absolutely incredible…it deserves 5* plus more! Every member of staff here are a credit to the hotel. They were so kind, helpful and worked tirelessly to ensure the best holiday. Thank you so much for making our stay so memorable.
