A lovely hotel, amazing facilities and a haven for adults
We came to stay for 5 nights over the EID holidays, unfortunately this meant 72 hours without alcohol being served, which we only found out about when we arrived. It would have been nice to be advised, however we managed around this, as they did serve it to the rooms. The hotel has a lovely pool and as only 16+ yrs are allowed , it was a peaceful haven. We spend one day on the beach, however the restaurant wasn't open down there, which was annoying as the beach was quite busy and they could have done some trade. The one restaurant by the pool was lovely, however only served a limited menu of 6 starters and 6 mains, all quite high-end. It would be a good idea to have some more simpler food available during the day. My husband enjoyed the diving and recommended the Dive centre. The staff were lovely overall and very helpful. Breakfast was interesting, depending on the time of the day you came. If busy the staff were a little chaotic.You choose a main course from the menu, which was nice. It took 3 days to get a Decaf cappuccino correct and no-on seemed to understand that various items went inside the omelette not by it on the plate - never had that before ! They served a lovely smoothie with your breakfast, although sometimes we had to ask for this as they forgot us. We ate in a mix of restaurants, all very good and even the room service was excellent. It was very nice to be up on the cliff and away from the hoards of families. It is a nice touch that the mini-bar is included - food and drinks...
Probably one of the most scenic hotel in the world
Words cant describe the natural view available here. With lush green grass, picturesque mountains and the view of Gulf of Oman until your eyes get tired, this hotel is all about its location. Shangri La is already renowned for its spa and other relaxation facilities, this hotel has added some features on top of that too. Completely romantic setup of the room, the hotel facilities which are only for Al Husn guests, this hotel is completely worth the money that you invest for a night or two. The only slight disappointment was the buffet breakfast. Lesser food choices than expected. Being an Indian, the first thing we look for is some kind of curry which wasnt handy unfortunately. But the view and price of the hotel and its location has completely made up for it. Driving almost 500kms to reach was very tiring but the last 10kms and the sight of the hotel just relieves you from all the tiredness and sparks a positive vibe and energy into you. Must visit for couples.
Paradise in Oman
We arrived early in the morning and were welcomed by the great staff, starting from the valet service to the reception.... The reception lady allowed us to check in early without any charges, and she was amazingly kind and sweet... Thank you, Elisabeth. The food.... sooo delicious! And also, all the staff in the restaurant are so sweet, no words, really...The rooms are very clean, the view is beautiful, you will have a private beach with the best service ever. Thank you, Dewood (I'm not sure about the spelling).... Overall, our stay was a memorable one, and definitely will come back again!
Simple words can’t describe this resort...
My experience began by being picked up from Muscat International Airport by the Resorts own Bentley. Driven by Abdullah, who was the most kind and generous person I have ever met. We were greeted at the Resort with complementary beverages to take up to our room. The room was fantastic, mine came with a complementary mini bar which was refilled at a time of your choosing. The stunning views from the rooms balcony really made it for me. Moving down to the absolutely beautiful infinity pool, I have never been so relaxed in all my life as I was in that infinity pool. The views from the pool area are as stunning at night as they are during the day. Two restaurants at the Al Husn resort; Sultanah, which has a more westernized menu and Shahrazad which is Moroccan cuisine. Both restaurants have amazing food and I highly recommend both. One of my favorite parts of this trip was the fact that there were no children so it was a very quiet and relaxing environment. I stress that I CANNOT recommend Al Husn enough and I will definitely be returning in the future.
I would love to thank all the staff for the amazing anniversary arrangements in my room whenever I have an occasion i always come back to this hotel, I would love the thank Suad Al Balushi for her great service always it's not our first time to speak with her and deal with her shes always smiling and it makes us feel like home whenever we come back to the hotel.
