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.
