This is my favourite hotel in the world - have been coming for 20 years - stunning scenery, the most beautiful lobby in the world and excellent staff. Executive suite was great, food excellent, staff great - Thaw in the spa gives a great massage and Baulkar in the main restaurant is the smartest guy in the hotel. A must visit location

Exceeded expectations
Stayed for last night of our honeymoon. They went above and beyond to make it special with a surprise in our room and the best seat in the house for dinner, right on the beach. The Friday brunch was excellent - bring your appetite - and the staff (especially Victor) really made us feel at home. Ideal, top quality place to relax on the beach or by the pool, within driving distance of sights in Muscat.
