Its a must, the place is beautiful and worth! Camping, bring your own food and woods, you can make nice bbq just on front of the tent. Love it and will go there again! Wifi available, electricity, bikes for rent. Go watch the sunrise!

..... and maybe also the only one. The location is perfect. On one side you can look into the grand canyon of Oman and on the other side you can see to the far mountains and enjoy the sundown. The rooms are ok, nothing luxury, but we slept very well without A/C. The restaurant serves indian food; although it looks more like a cantine it was ok for us. Just dont go there for a romatic dinner, it will. Ot work out as you wish. The pool was finished but (over)used by a group of indian tourists.

Location. Location. Location! That about sums it up. The only improvement they should make is to put electrical outlets in the rooms (and a heater in the swimming pool). And don't believe anything said about getting up there without a 4WD vehicle. Never attempt it in a sedan! Helpful, friendly service. Bring your own water (or buy there).

We really enjoyed Jebel Shams Resort, it is a peaceful Resort on the top of the mountain with tremendous views and good service. We went for two hikes from there and also rented mountain bikes. The swimming pool was not finished yet, but in February we did not really need it.

We arrived in early April after a hair-raising, breath-robbing drive up the mountain in a tiny Kia Picanto. We checked out both the Sun Chalets and the Arabic tents, decided the typical hotel-room type chalets would be forgettable, so chose the Arabic tent. It is large, lit with an Arabic lantern, very photogenic, and replete with morning goat maa-maa-ing outside. One employee would work to shoo the goats out of the resort grounds, but they continue to stray in, walk giddily about, and accept light pats on the head. We stuck our toes in the heated pool,but it was way too cold for even the hardiest. The resort's perch is an excellent one for local walking, bird watching, and stunning views. Overall, the food is quite good and the service extremely attentive. Locals, in wonderful attire, were also there. It's hard to keep the itching hand from the camera and the gracious clerk allowed us to photograph him in traditional Omani garb. In sum, a night at the Resort compensates for the slight hysteria created as the car crept up the heights.
