I don't think I need to add to the lengthy reviews about the concept of the complex and the differences between the 3 properties.... suffice it to say that if you elect to stay at the Al Husn you cannot be disappointed. From the moment you enter the fabulous foyer to , sadly having to depart, everything is so special....

The Al Husn hotel is one of three Shangri-La hotels set in a beautiful bay some 30 minutes from Muscat old town. It is designated as 'child free' and although children are allowed to stay here they are not allowed in the pool areas or restaurants. Rooms are large, luxuriously appointed, with a free mini bar (no spirits, just soft...

My partner and I stayed in Muscat for 4 nights in August 2016- Initially we planed to stay at the Chedi but as not all dates were available we decided to stay the first night at the legendary Al Bustan Palace. We then left Muscat for 16 days and traveled through Sri Lanka, to then return back to the magical...

Stayed here for 8 nights recently having stayed for a week 2 years ago . Standards were equally high. Pretty much everything was faultless. Only slight down side is that there is some building work going on at the beach - but even them work time is quite restricted and it didn't bother us. Highlights were the jazz bbq and...

Having a conference here in this wonderful ressort is really special as it allows to combine business with holiday feeling. The room in the Al Huzn part of the ressort is spacious with all the amenities you would expect in a 5* hotel, breakfast in the Sultana restaurant perfect, great pastry, great fruit and hot breakfast. Beach and surrounding landscapes...

Loved the beach and pool area and the service there was great! The room was fine, great bed and we used our balcony a lot but the bathroom needs to be updated. The location is great and ideal for a relaxing break. We tried a couple fo restaurants at the resort which were just ok but quite expensive. But nowadays,...

Hard to fault, well-appointed, professionally managed, 5*+ hotel in beautiful location. Hotel Al Husn is one of three, all very different, hotels in the large, Shangri-La managed, Barr Al Jissah resort. As other reviewers have said this is a very good resort, so there is no need to repeat what other people have said already. The following may be helpful...

We stayed at the Al Husn hotel with wonderful views and a small private beach, the food and staff were first class and the 6pm cocktails and canapés is not to be missed. This is unadulterated luxury in a palace atmosphere.

First visit to Oman - be clear, this isn't the place to use as a base to visit Oman, this is the place to relax, unwind and enjoy some first class service and first class accommodation. We used the Spa while here for a massage. Not cheap (1hr = £100) but you certainly felt rather spoilt and well cared for......
