An ideal anniversary stay
Staying at the Shagri-la was a dream. We got engaged 6years ago at Shangri-La and we returned celebrating our anniversary in December. The check in process was swift and efficient. Safe spaces were respected at all times and our room was arranged and allocated in a timely fashion. We were lucky enough to have a room facing the pool and the ocean with an exquisite view. The laughter from children together with the crashing waves were a wonderful combination. We celebrated our anniversary with the dine by design private dinner at the lagoon. With fine dining decadent lobster and of course South African wine for dinner. The personalized experience made it a magnificent anniversary and an especially marvelous memory. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We look forward visiting again in February coming to stay with our 2 year old daughter.
An escape from reality
Had our farewell here for friends so many of our families all went for the weekend and it was just beautiful. The rooms by the pool were great for easy access and so much fun for the kids. Social distancing practices was implemented all over the hotel. The restaurant staff were great and the food was good. The rooms were comfortable, clean and resort style large rooms so some happy campers but we spent most of the day at the pool, lazy river and the beach. The well kept gardens and lawns gives you relaxing tropical vibes all around. I highly recommend this beautiful resort.
A must visit place, when in Muscat
Shangrila by far is one of the most beautiful properties one can stay at. It has unmatched sea view rooms and amazing hospitality. If you are in Muscat, make sure to book two nights here to just enjoy what Oman really has to offer to you. I booked with the resort directly and I think its the best option. We booked the staycation offer which gave us early check-in, late check out, 20% discount on F&B (which is a steal). With two nights booked, we literally had three full days to enjoy at the resort. We checked in at 11am which was super smooth thanks to Ria on the reception. She was kind enough to help us with all our requests. We jumped into the pool immediately and spent the whole afternoon there. Some points to consider for travellers: > Vegetarian meals are available but very few options. Since I am an eggeterian, I was able to gorge on pancake, waffles, croissants and omelettes at brkfast times, else there was only Upma, Sambhar, stir fried mushrooms and hash brows as veg offerings for brkfast. Suggest the hotel has an option for Ala Carte for such veg customers and let them ask the waiters to help them if you don't want to prepare veg food in huge quantities. Dev, at Samba restaurant helped me with veg options for breakfast as he knew I was a vegetarian and would like to appreciate his humble and kind behaviour. Travellers, suggest you carry some ready to eat options for yourself as in room dining does not have much options in veg too. > Book via the hotel directly and do go for the staycation option. It will prac tically give you one additional day if stay at the hotel and a very good deal for F&B. > Pick Al Waha over Al Bandar if you want uncompromised sea views from your room. Also it's much more lively in the Al waha building. Also if taking sea view rooms, definitely ask for rooms on 3rd or 4th floor. The rooms offer amazing views. We stayed in Al Waha Superior sea view room. > Carry appropriate swim wear to use pool facilities. Also the pool is temperature controlled, which helps in the winter seasons. > Lazy river is a unique concept and I love how relaxing it was. Definitely try it out. > Carry Chromecast or some other entertainment for yourself as after sundown the property has not much to do. You will be in your room and the in-room entertainment is a bit dull. > Bathtubs in the rooms are a must have. They have amazing deep bathtubs to soak your worries away. For me, this was a fantastic experience and will make sure to visit Shangrila for their service and hospitality everytime I am in Muscat next. Thank you for making my child's visit memorable and for us to enjoy our staycation at your resort.
Awesome Property with an equally great Service
The Property is just beautiful and very well maintained. The beach is beautiful. The service was Top Notch, starting from check-in to housekeeping to room service. Will add more about the property once I explore all the facilities.
