We've escaped here for our wedding anniversary and got upgraded to a suite, a thank you to the staff and management!
A good 5 hours drive from Dubai which was certainly worth the effort to do. One of the things we enjoyed was the day next to the pool, fruit coming past in intervals and the water enjoyable. Friendly waiting staff and quick to put up the umbrellas. A pity the Breeze Bar wasnt open and too much hassle to get up and walk into the restuarant to order a beer.
Agree the beach is a bit of a walk but such a nice view from there, can see they are still waiting for the whole development to get up and running. Watch the sunset with a glass of wine was stunning.
Day out with Jessabeach tours, dolphing watching, a pod of at least 50-80 dolphins with-in 15 minutes out from the Marina. Snorkelling at a spot afterwards and saw a lot of beautifull fish and sea turtle. Once done we went for a picnic and lunch on the beach for the afternoon lounging and eating, what a peaceful setting. Excellent service but be sure it will cost you a bit, hotel manager confirmed they are tryIng for cheaper rates.
The first room we stayed in, beautiful view over the marina but the aircon didnt work, and they quickly moved us to a different suite with a bit of the view still. Bedding and room lay out is excellent with enough space to get around. The Nespresso machine for coffee in the suites is a nice add-on. Rooms are of quality, just a pity the 4th floor doesn't have lift acces for the middle,
so had to carry a portion of my bags down to the trolley downstairs on the way to check-out.
The restuarant food is good and the a la carte menu has got a nice variety. A bit dissapointed with the buffet as the selection for the meat was limited. Breakfast over the week-end was a good sprad and tasty, during the week days certainly down sized due to the amount of visitors. Unfortunately did not get to the fish restuarant so cant comment on that though.
None of the spa facilities are open yet and we will try that once it is available when we do go
If you want to see any of Muscat do it before or after your visit. The drive there is stunning throughh the mountains and it reminds us of the range in Namibia between Sesriem and Walvisbay, stunning, such a difference from the flat of Dubai and surrounds.
