Yet again a great experience. We asked to have the same room as last time, and got it! Continued fab service, location, rooms, food, breakfast especially, love afternoon tea. This time we brought our own snorkelling gear and went out around the rocks - loads of fish and turtles. Only one question: can they change the time of the yoga... More

I stayed at he Al Husn 2 nights with my husband this Summer. The hotel is located a little outside of Muscat (about 45 min from the airport). Although the Al Husn is the most expensive of the 3 Shangri La hotels in Muscat, we found the service a little disappointing. For example, there was no one to help us... More

Was surprised to know that kids aren't welcomed to use facilities in Alhusn. I had to use Alwaha instead which was a bit troublesome to get to by buggy or a shuttle bus. Overall it was an enjoyable experience where we enjoyed it -we were 8 persons- the breakfast in Alhusn has limited options for the buffet but al la... More

The resort is great and have many facilities where you will not have the need to get out of it to get something. Also, I really liked the fact of free, daily replenished mini-bar, complimentary afternoon tea, and free game center facility for residents. However, I feel that Al-Husn is really understaffed for its requirement, as the check-in and check-out... More
