Stayed for 3 nights with my husband at the end of a business trip and we can't praise the Al Husn highly enough. The lovely staff, the great service, the food, the 'extras' included - afternoon tea, evening cocktails, cool boxes on the beach, mini bar - just add to the magnificent position, pool and the great bedrooms and bathrooms....

My husband and I spent a very enjoyable long weekend (3 nights) at the Shangri-La Al Bandar hotel at the beginning of December 2013. Overall the resort is beautiful and well maintained and it does not feel crowded (including the beach area) even when it is very busy. In general, Oman is a great holiday destination: it is clean, safe,...

I guess it depends on your references how you rate this hotel. I was travelling with (elderly) family members who don't usually stay in five star hotels and they couldn't stop raving about the place. Personally I found it a big disappointment compared to other Shangri-La hotels. There was no valet parking or luggage assistance upon arrival. The rooms are...
