Golden Tulip Nizwa
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Nizwa
Reviewed April 10, 2014

We stayed at the Golden Tulip Nizwa for one night, 7 April 2014. I made the booking based on a previous stay at the hotel when Aletta and I stayed there many years ago. The hotel is lovely and has been kept updated with latest standards. We enjoyed our visit even though we were only there for one night. We chose to eat room service rather than the expensive buffet. As always, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. I would return should I find myself in Nizwa again.

This is a nice hotel a little drive from exciting Nizwa . Lovely pool and a wonderful Omani singer/ musician who plays most evenings . Food OK but downside - it was full of pushy Dutch tourists who took over in a loud aggressive way .
The staff and hotel were really good - pity about the guests !

When you are best in town, it is easy to let the standards slip. Priding itself with 5 stars, this hotel would be at the bottom of 4. It is way out of town, so you are confined to the buffet at the pool. Not bad though, but at premium prices. One can get wine at ditto prices, so we practised our abstinence. Rooms are standard, toiletry goodies just for one person, TV not working.
Surpisingly, no need for the airco at this time of the year.

The name put me off as it was so un omani but v glad we went with this hotel. short trip out of town yet well worth it to get the stunning mountain scenery that seems to cradle the hotel. Welcoming drinks & fresh dates on arrival. All rooms are set around hotel pool, with opening patio doors into that central area. V good at end of day for catching last of sun. a la carte meal in outside eatery v nice..higly recommend tandoori chicken. Buffet breakfast plentiful but average quality. Suffered with several power failures on the days we were there but generator kicked in v quickly & in a strange way seemed to add to the charm of the place. Recommend over any of the other central nizwa places.

All ok (except the highly overpriced and rather modest poolside dinner on Fridays).
Pool offers a nice chance to relax after a busy day in the Grand Canyon area.
Very nice, attentive staff.
Location of the hotel is not truly sexy (in the middle of nowhere), but ok if you have a car (which in any case is a must in the region, unless you travel with a guided group a retired German high school teachers who seem to have discovered Oman).

The hotel itself is wonderful: great rooms, the buffet is extremely rich, decors are in some sort in local style and so on. What is misleading is the location, which is not actually in Nizwa, but along the main road very far from town (no noise from the road, however).
