This is the place to be if you want to relax and enjoy the beauty of Muscat city and soak in the serenity of the place. One of the best resort experiences we've had. From the front desk to the restaurant staff-everyone went out of their way to make it a great experience for us. Special mention to restaurant staff...

We stayed for 4 nights ( wish we had booked more) the hotel Is a great place to totally unwind, the staff are very attentive And nothing is to much trouble, the restaurants offer good quality, the early evening cocktail drinks is a good social event, In all this is a great hotel with its own beach.

Amazing resort on the Gulf of Oman. Absolute luxury. Al Husn is adults only (highly recommended if not children along on your trip). The small private beach is phenomenal and offers free kayak and snorkel rentals. Wine/beer happy hour every evening is lovely with live music by a harpist. So very easy to truly relax.

It's seriously hard to fault this hotel and we were just as pleased on our return visit this week. Excellent service from the concierge to the housekeeping staff. Beautiful ambience, location, pools and beach. The breakfasts were just as good as I remembered including the a la carte options which change daily. It is also very easy to book any...

Shangrillah Resort in Oman is a perfect place to relax but we particularly enjoy staying at Al Husn which is aimed to couples and/or adults. My husband and I are teachers and though we love children it is very good to take a break from children chatter. It is so relaxing to swim with no risk to bump into children...
