I had chosen this accomodation based on earlier reviews from others and I wasn't disappointed. Mr Eldho who looks after this was most accomodating of the many changes we made in our itinerary. He was very helpful through the trip and took good care of us.
The villas are situated about a 5 min drive from the harbour and the airport. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The only thing is that we wished there were tea-coffee making facilities in the smaller rooms as well. Mr Eldho picked us up and took us to nearby restAurants for all our meals.
We did the half day dhow cruise and the mountain safari through Al Taif. Both were very good experiences. The half day cruise is from 9.30 to about lunch time--you can snorkel and swim around when the dhow stops at Telegraph Island. All equipment provided on board the dhow. Tea, coffee, water, soft drinks and fruits also provided.
Mountain safari--was beeautiful. If you a resident of UAE, Muscat, you should bring your 4wd and do this drive.
Ferry service to Khasab operates from Muscat on Wed and the return is on Friday. You can bring cars as well. There is one flight daily as well.
No taxis in Khasab-which is where Mr Eldho really helped as he drove us where we wanted.
The only hotel serving alcohol is the Golden Tulip.
Recommended number of days in Khasab-2 to 3
