This hotel knows how to do hospitality, and their front lobby staff are exceptional. They almost trip over themselves in trying to assist you, with a smile and a pleasant attitude. This is where I will stay every time I go to Oman. The views are extraordinary, the beaches beautiful, the spa is marvelous (according to my wife anyway), and...

The Al Husn doesn't look like the pictures shown. It felt much more large-scale resort-like. Down by the pool there are menus with photos of the fast food they serve and 'pineapple surprise' cocktails. just didn't feel like a luxury hotel, more a massive resort complex with very standard food.

We picked Oman for some winter sunshine as felt that it was a bit different and it was - we thoroughly enjoyed it. The Al Husn was a gorgeous hotel, head and shoulders above the other 2 shangri la hotels on the same site. No children are allowed here so if you are a couple do not even consider booking...

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights to recover from jet lag and celebrate my birthday, and I couldn't have imagined a more ideal hotel. The service was incredible, the rooms were fully stocked with everything we needed, and the food and drink were all top notch. It's not a cheap place to stay by any means, but...

I booked this hotel upon recommendation from a few friends and I was not let down; in fact it was above and beyond my expectations. I booked my parents in also as it was their wedding anniversary and they were welcomed with complementary sparkling wine and treats inside their room that added to the special experience.

We stayed a week at the adult only Al Husn and wished we had added a few more days. The hotel is one of three in the development; we were unsure about visiting a large resort but the resort as a whole never appeared crowded and the Al Husn in particular proved an oasis of calm relaxation.
