The location of the hotels' complex is great in a superb creek surrounded by brown-orange sandi rocks. The settings of the hotel, with relaxing bar zone with ocean view, a private beach allowing to swim in the clean water of the golf of Oman and pools is perfect. We also enjoyed great food quality at the breakfast and dinner buffet...

We chose to enjoy some winter sun and take a mini break in Oman with the family on our first proper holiday together in years. We spent 4 nights at the resort and enjoyed our time there tremendously. As my little brother has special needs we needed a hotel that was child friendly and this resort was perfect. The rooms...

What an absolutely stunning hotel, with such attentive staff and a wonderful choice of restaurants that serve delicious food. The buffet restaurant which offers both breakfast and supper is world class. They hand pick extremely talented chefs to deliver a wide array of different cuisines and beautifully presented desserts. The beach is kept beautifully and the pool areas are lovely...

Beautiful resort set amongst the mountains. All is great except that for lunch you can only eat at the pool restaurants which are over crouded noisy and under staffed. The other restaurants are only open for the evenings. Though they are nice, they are once again understaffed. The beach is very nice and the watersport facilities are good

Super location but not up to the standard of what we could have had expected from a Shangri La. Looks like a hotel club, rooms with no charm, buffet food average, restaurants fully booked for days, super crazy prices : almost 4000 $ for 5 nights!!!!!!!!!!
