Recently, my family and I stayed at Al Husn for a long weekend. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay. Overall, everything was great, from the pool, to the breakfast, and quality of service all around. Definitely a resort I would recommend for a few days. The beach was amazing, and there is plenty of walking paths all around. After... More

I have traveled to over 100 different countries and our experience at the Al Husn was fantastic. The seaside location, luxurious guest room, excellent service, elegant attention to create a rich ambiance and incredible views.

My wife and I stayed at the Al-Husn hotel (no kids allowed) during a recent getaway. The pool and private beach were excellent. The service at both places was top-notch. We enjoyed the nightly cocktail reception. We also thoroughly enjoyed that families and couples have access to separate hotel facilities. My only complaint was that they didn't serve any pork...

As Golden Circle members we had are usual break at Al Husn in April and our usual room. The facilities are just as good as before-complimentary mini-bar, cocktail hour and private beach with attentive beach boys. Maybe we have been coming here too long but the Al Husn does not seem as fresh as before.What we did notice, especially Capri... More

This was our second trip to Muscat although our first to the Al Husn which we chose as it was adults only. We arrived in Muscat late in the evening but were quickly met by our driver and transferred to the hotel for a very swift check in. It was not until the morning that we could take in the... More

Went here just for a one night stay at resident rate. Excellent value. Great room, nice touches. No need to go for the sea view as I think virtually all rooms can see the sea. Rate included afternoon tea and 'cocktail' hour. Not really concktails but they don't let your glass go empty which is good in my books. Excellent... More
