We stayed here for 12 nights, our second visit, the first being two years ago. I think other people have described the hotel and its facilities in some detail. The hotel is so peaceful. We loved the pool, the men there really look after the guests. We had a light lunch most days at the Al Maheet, the cafe near...

My husband and I returned recently after spending 9 nights at this lovely hotel. All staff were excellent, friendley, helpful, professional.....This was our 4th visit to the resort so we knew our way around. There are several restaurants to choose from but we didn't eat at the Al Husn, the buffet style and tapas were more for us. The room...

We just spent ten days at the high end Al Husn Shangri La just outside of Muscat. The hotel has an excellent staff and the kind of quiet atmosphere which is much appreciated by couples traveling without children. Because the resort has two other levels of hotel in the same complex, the Al Husn is able to maintain an element...

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay and found everything very much to our taste. We would recommend this hotel if you are looking for an excellent 5 Star place to stay. The beach service was particularly nice with complimentary umbarellas, towels and cool boxes with water supplied.

I have just returned with two friends after a wonderful week at the Al Husn Hotel. When booking cost is always a consideration but the additional cost for this hotel is more than worth it. The standard of accommodation together with the service given to guests is wonderful. From the breakfast menu which is served at your table and the...

We have just had a glorious week in this fabulously luxurious, quiet, relaxing and beautiful hotel. The service is outstanding and the rooms and bathrooms perfect. We returned here after a 10 year gap and it was the as enjoyable as before which means they must have the right recipe for excellence in what guests want from a boutique resort.

We had high expectations having been to the Al Bustan the previous February. First impression of the Al Husn is of a slightly stark hotel. Sea view room very good and the staff very good too but, somehow, the place does not come off as a welcoming place to stay. Breakfast good (no bacon obviously) and lunch we only had...

Stayed at Al Husn with my son for long weekend. This hotel is expensive but you know that when booking - staff are very good and it has a real old world feel - this is no Dubai - it's a proper experience of Arabic culture. Private beach is excellent and swimming pool as good as it gets in perfect...

The stay didn’t get off to the perfect seamless start you’d expect from Shangri-la but fortunately things recovered during the five night stay. I’d arranged transportation from the airport on arrival via the hotel but once in the arrivals hall there didn’t appear to be anyone waiting. Questioning at one of the rental desks didn’t help but asking around a...

We have travelled extensively and are used to 5* accommodation, however, our 8 nights in the Al Husn rank at the very top of the list. We had an excellent room with a panoramic sea view across Bander Jissah Bay and were treated to a breathtaking sunrise every morning! It is very difficult to pick a 'stand out' highlight, but...
