The Al-Husn hotel is the best one among the three hotels of the Shangri-la Complex. The staff is very friendly and professional. There is a free shuttle service to bring you from the hotel to the different places in the resort like the marina. The private beach is very quite and nice.

My wife and I stayed at the Al Husn in March 2017. We booked a Deluxe Sea View room, the room had a great view the only problem was it was on the ground floor which is part carpeted and hard flooring and the noise of trolleys woke people up. The servicing of the rooms is also a bit haphazard...

The Al-Husn hotel is the best one among the three hotels of the Shangri-la Complex. We arrived early on a Sunday morning and were given at 10am an invitation for breakfast, then we got our room keys before noon. Everything was beautiful in this place: the mountains, the beaches, the view from our sea-view room. Staff is incredibly friendly and...

We stayed one night in this hotel which is located in a stunning site near Mascate. The location itself justify the stay! Rooms and bathroom are very spacious and includes everything you need. We had the good surprise to discover that we had partial sea view from our room, although we booked a garden view room. Food at the Sultanah...

What a gem The Al Husn located at the Barr al jissah resort of Shang ri la in Muscat is absolutely beautiful. The staff cannot do enough for you and the amenities and facilities are superb. All the staff deserve a mention. My only criticism is that it is very isolated but that in some respects adds to the features....

Just returned from a wonderful week at the Al Husn. Beautiful room overlooking the pool and with sea views too. Excellent friendly staff. One or two minor wrinkles which need to be ironed out but feel certain that the new General Manager Milan will sort these out swiftly. He is very customer focused and we wish him well in his...

This was my 5th visit to the resort and 2nd time at Al Husn. We've had a wonderful holiday but noticed this time (more than on any previous visit) that a lack of segregating smokers to a particular area made it difficult to avoid them whilst sunbathing and during the super drinks reception each evening - such a shame and...

What can we add to all the previous excellent comments about this hotel? We stayed here for a week before going touring and we found everything about this hotel top notch. The mini bar in our bedroom was replenished daily and a cold beer was most welcome after a morning on the private beach. A quick snooze in our lovely...
