A nice hotel with the most impressive view. A good relaxing atmosphere with pleasant and attentive staff.
Our room looked over the plant area which was pleasant but you can't actually see the view. The only rooms to look over the view are the deluxe ones on the upper level.
The pool looks lovely but is ice cold! My husband swam 40 lengths in it and was still cold at the end of it. There is a warm pool but not that warm compared to the temperate air temperature especially in the evening.
There is no alcohol sold in the hotel so we brought along our own coolbox of beer and we sat on our patio for a drink.
The food was mostly good but the buffet was cold in parts and some food was under cooked. The breakfast was much better with freshly made to order pancakes, waffles and omelettes! They also had lovely fire pits outside in the evening to keep you warm as the temperatue drops quite significantly so bring your jumpers!
The hotel is overall quite expensive but a standard price for Oman. Worth it for the cool temperatures and great view. Plus a great little walk through a local village available nearby.
