Stayed here for 8 nights recently having stayed for a week 2 years ago . Standards were equally high. Pretty much everything was faultless. Only slight down side is that there is some building work going on at the beach - but even them work time is quite restricted and it didn't bother us. Highlights were the jazz bbq and... More

Having a conference here in this wonderful ressort is really special as it allows to combine business with holiday feeling. The room in the Al Huzn part of the ressort is spacious with all the amenities you would expect in a 5* hotel, breakfast in the Sultana restaurant perfect, great pastry, great fruit and hot breakfast.

Loved the beach and pool area and the service there was great! The room was fine, great bed and we used our balcony a lot but the bathroom needs to be updated. The location is great and ideal for a relaxing break. We tried a couple fo restaurants at the resort which were just ok but quite expensive. But nowadays,... More

Hard to fault, well-appointed, professionally managed, 5*+ hotel in beautiful location. Hotel Al Husn is one of three, all very different, hotels in the large, Shangri-La managed, Barr Al Jissah resort. As other reviewers have said this is a very good resort, so there is no need to repeat what other people have said already. The following may be helpful... More

We stayed at the Al Husn hotel with wonderful views and a small private beach, the food and staff were first class and the 6pm cocktails and canapés is not to be missed. This is unadulterated luxury in a palace atmosphere.

First visit to Oman - be clear, this isn't the place to use as a base to visit Oman, this is the place to relax, unwind and enjoy some first class service and first class accommodation. We used the Spa while here for a massage. Not cheap (1hr = £100) but you certainly felt rather spoilt and well cared for...... More
