We booked 3 nights online, had a 20% discount for a standard room, got upgraded on arrival to a lovely suite with nice view of the Marina and the pool.
The hotel lies at the very end of the village of As Sifah, 40 min driving from Muscat through a beautiful scenery road up and down the hills. Make sure you have a car to visit places around; should you want to get deeper, hire a 4WD.
For those who wants to tour Oman and have a rest from the trip, that's the ideal place to spend a few days. I wouldn't stay longer than that, unless your main purpose for going to Oman is a relaxing vacation (but that should be a pity, you can't even imagine what this beautiful country has to offer....).
Young staff very kind, polite and professional; excellent food.
One important thing: Sifawy is the only business already open in a middle of a big holiday site project. Alltough many things have still to be done, you don't feel like being in a construction site. When we were there, we met an average of 20 people per day; which was positive to us.
If you don't mind peace and resting lonelyness, that's the right place.
All in all, amazing experience.
