Exquisite...for a couples only holiday, simply sublime. The hotel is beautiful, the staff efficient and unobtrusive, and the pool gorgeous. The private couples only beach is a real gem too...well run, with padded beds, attentive staff and chilled water and drinks on your bedside table. The restaurants are outstanding...great variety across the whole complex which includes two other family hotels....

We had a 5 night stay from the 13th March. We arrived on an early flight with BA and as our room wasn't ready, we were given a complimentary breakfast which was lovely. Indeed, breakfast is a delicious affair with a wide variety of cooked and cold foods to choose from, along with lovely platters of fresh fruit. The smoothies...

Be aware, you have to pay a £50 (per person) visa on entry into Muscat if your holiday is more than 10 days. This came as a surprise to us. On the whole, we had a lovely holiday and enjoyed a relaxing break in the sunshine. The weather at the end of February, beginning of March was perfect for us....

The Al-Husn hotel is the best one among the three hotels of the Shangri-la Complex. The staff is very friendly and professional. There is a free shuttle service to bring you from the hotel to the different places in the resort like the marina. The private beach is very quite and nice.

My wife and I stayed at the Al Husn in March 2017. We booked a Deluxe Sea View room, the room had a great view the only problem was it was on the ground floor which is part carpeted and hard flooring and the noise of trolleys woke people up. The servicing of the rooms is also a bit haphazard...

The Al-Husn hotel is the best one among the three hotels of the Shangri-la Complex. We arrived early on a Sunday morning and were given at 10am an invitation for breakfast, then we got our room keys before noon. Everything was beautiful in this place: the mountains, the beaches, the view from our sea-view room. Staff is incredibly friendly and...

What a gem The Al Husn located at the Barr al jissah resort of Shang ri la in Muscat is absolutely beautiful. The staff cannot do enough for you and the amenities and facilities are superb.
