We have just returned from an overnight stay at Turtle Beach Resort. Our check in was very smooth and we were quickly shown to our sea view room which accommodated my husband, two children and myself easily. After checking in we had hoped to spend the afternoon snorkeling but were unable to due to the amount of jelly fish in the water - not the fault of the resort obviously but disappointing for our boys. The evening trip to see the turtles was amazing and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Sadly there was not enough people interested in taking a dhow trip the following morning (which had been highly recommended to us by friends who had visited recently) although there was no advertising for this so perhaps not all guests were aware of it?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Turtle Beach Resort is located 40 kms from Sur on the southern coastline area of the Arabian Peninsula of the Sultanate of Oman at the famous Ras Al Hadd area (world famous breeding ground for the Green turtles). A virgin beach area was identified in a crystal-clear lagoon and the resort was built in typical Omani tradition. Turtle Beach Resort is a traditional Omani style resort that has been offering its services for more than ten years now. We do everything to guarantee that your stay will be a pleasant one. The hotel has a private Beach for an unforgettable beach experience for all the family to enjoy. An ideal way to enjoy nature to its fullest would be to check into the resort in the day, bask in the sun, enjoy some water sports and after dinner make a visit to Ras-Al-Jinz Habitat to see the turtles come on to the beach searching for nesting ground and turtles laying eggs. ... more less
