“Perfect place”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

Stayed here on the inward and outward legs of our trip round Oman - if only there were more places like this! Comfortable, clean rooms, lovely helpful staff and great value too. It's about a 20 - 30 min drive (only 5 R taxi ride) into central Muscat, but it's lovely and quiet and a lovely terrace overlooking the sea.

Ideal for arrival in Oman - near the airport, on the beach, well furnished, quiet and comfortable. All sorts of facilities, from tea making to fast internet, that you will appreciate all the more once you start staying in other hotels around the country!

We have stayed for 5 nights and I can only say it was an excellent experience. Unfortunately Lanavila wasn't available so we stayed next to villa- DeeVilla which is very comfortable with a nice rooms.
The breakfast was good with plenty choice. Mic, the owner was very friendly with a good tips where to go to restaurants and places to visits. I will definitely stay again in this cozy B&B in Muscat.

Stayed there for one night with my wife and kids. Mic, the German owner, was very friendly and relaxed. Felt quickly at home and spent some time on the pleasant roof terrace. You'll definitely need a car here, but that applies for nearly every accomodation in Muscat. Room was nothing to write home about but spotlessly clean. Breakfast was good; all in all a very good choice for Muscat.

I just spent four nights at this very attractive and comfortable bed and breakfast and found it to be a totally enjoyable experience. My room faced the beach and had a little balcony to boot! The lobby is very charming and has a communal table where a delicious breakfast is served every morning. Mic and his staff were very friendly and helpful. Since I did not have a car he arranged a personal guided tour of several of the sights in Oman through his partner travel company. There are nice walks to be taken along the corniche which fronts the property. Muscat itself is a very beautiful and interesting city to vist. Some of the unforgettable sights include the downtown souk and corniche, the beautiful Grand Mosque and the Sultan's Palace. I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting Oman.

Room Tip: Try to get the room that faces the beach and has the balcony

Lanavilla is an excellent alternative to the rather expensive resort hotels. The downstairs public areas are both comfortable and spacious and offered complimentary computer access as well as all day coffee, tea and water. We chose a first floor room which was very pleasant,bright and airy, and came with a balcony overlooking the beach.
Lanavilla is situated in a quiet residential area about a 20 minute drive from the airport.
A number of shops, cafes and restaurants are walkable but really a car is required to see all of Muscat's sights comfortably.

Room Tip: Our sea view room was bright and spacious and worth the extra cost over a standard room.

My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights in Lanavilla (2 nights before our roundtrip, and the last 2 nights of our stay in Oman). It is a very large house opposite the beach, with 10 rooms (each with their own bathroom), a large living and a several (roof) terraces.
We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere there. Mic is a wonderful host. He is very interested in his guests. He knows his way around in Muscat and Oman and he is more then willing to share his knowledge and experiences. E.g. he advised us to have dinner in Kageen Restaurant, which was great!.
We would definitely recommend everyone who is not interested in staying in one of the large, commercial, impersonal (and very expensive) hotels to stay in Lanavilla.
