Total luxury. Difficult to describe, perfect view, delicious breakfast, a complete "pillow menu" and and a perfect mattress. Together with corteous staff and spacious room, this hotel has a well deserved reputation. Two small aspects to take into account: Staff sometimes tend to be a bit overwhelming, knocking on your door every five minutes to see if you need something or to bring complimentary fruits, water or tea. I ended up using a lot the "do not disturb" sign. And yes, as one of the reviewers mentioned, the hotel is a bit far away from everywhere (that's why it has a private beach!), but since there is no an actual "center" in Muscat, you aren't missing much.
