“Great stay, great potential!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

My husband and I recently stayed 3 days/3 nights at Juweira. We got a great price as the hotel is not officially open yet - so was good value for money!
Positives: We stayed in a Marina suite room and loved it all - it was very large and the bathroom was great - the same size as the bedroom and beautifully decorated! Linen especially duvet/comforter was soft as a cloud (please post company you used to buy one if you can!) Also loved the relaxing outdoor area. The restaurant was great - in fact as is currently only one open we almost ate every meal on the menu between us in the few days we were there - seafood and desserts are highly recommended! Pool was great too and perfect to enjoy the weather! Everything was good quality and attention to detail and the staff were all very pleasant. Also loved Nespresso machine in room!!! Did not use gym but all equipment we use back in our gym at home which is good quality! Location good too.
The negatives...Staff are all very new to area so no one could help us with a Salalah Tour or map, even a taxi into town to try a different restaurant was too hard (well they tried but was very pricey - 20omr was offer!), they did not seem to know about local tourism or local restaurants...which is important for people wanting to make use of the area. I would recommend some more training on this... Also they offered room service, but had no menu anywhere yet, and spa treatments and alcohol licence had not yet started (important for those of us coming from dry country) so buy Duty Free and BYO!
But positives outweighed negatives by a lot. Has great potential and we would definitely come again.
Note: Heard it officially opens in August.

Room Tip: Marina rooms are best!

My first visit to Salalah ! Taxi driver took me to the wrong hotel first and then could not initially find this one, then demanded a ridiculous fare (to cover his incompetence) and stood in hotel reception for over an hour until sorted out (beware local taxi drivers, they are bandits).

The hotel was really, completely out of context. Sweeping through a dramatic desert and seascape then into a stunning luxury hotel was very strange in this location !

The hotel lobby is very Armani like - dramatic white columns, attentive staff, acres of the latest marble and limestone. Rooms are similar - I had a suite which was bigger than most flats I have owned, and definitely better furnished . Just stunning, and brand new. Separate bedroom, huge bathroom which one had to 'cross' to use the sink/shower/bath and top end fittings (Duravit, Grohe etc ironically exactly the model what we are refitting our London house with !)
Room was very comfortable, and zero complaints.

Dining - excellent excellent standards, chef is superb and the food follows that theme. Wide choice of cooked to order food well presented, lunch buffet and deserts , breakfast very good. Location of restaurant is on the harbor side with a good view of the marina.

If you are visiting Salalah the hotel is around 10km out, but worth that distance as there is little else.( I saw one of the other hotels when I went to the wrong one~) and it was tired, slightly mildewed and service poor so if that was the general standard I have no doubt. I stayed as part of a business conference and we were all super impressed.

Downside ? Only that the location is quiet, so nothing for kids to do /go see and the marina area is yet to be developed largely, so this is the first hotel on the site (several thousand acres of marina development). There is little doubt that this will develop fast particularly as the climate is a good 10-15c cooler than the rest of the gulf and also that it is quiet and relaxed. A number of GCC residents have bought apartments on the marina,

Ideal hotel for couples wanting an escape, a business location or with friends who want to explore the region which is fascinating.

Room Tip: Pick a suite, its well worth it

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary and had a most enjoyable experience. The staff were friendly and helpful and the accomodation was simply perfect. The Seafood restaurant was not yet open so we ate at the Al Fanar restaurant and enjoyed every morsel.

We stayed in a Marina Suite and loved the space and decor. The bed was very comfortable and we were pleased to see that we each had 2 pillows of very high quality. The bedlinen is top quality as are all the towels and robes. The range of toiletries is Eco and we were pleased to see that. The bathroom in the suite is to die for and I wish I had more time to languish in a bubble bath..next time maybe ;)

The gym is well equipped and has a view over the larger pool. The pools (there are 2) are beautiful. One is an infinity pool and the other is a larger pool with small childrens pool attached and also a jacuzzi/hot tub. Loved it all! The loungers are luxurious and the view amazing.

We have stayed at the Crowne Plaza Salalah and the Marriott Salalah( in Mirbat) and we were un-impressed by the standards there and the customer service and so feel overjoyed that the Juweira Boutique Hotel has opened.

The Juweira is however, more expensive than the other hotels in Salalah.

Taking everything into consideration t's everything we want from a hotel and more. Long may this continue. We just hope that they will have some special offers soon so that we can make it a regular haunt ;)

Room Tip: Rooms are all very large. We chose a Marina Suite as we had been there before and loved it, however...
