Absolutely fantastic attention to detail. Personal Cooler boxes with cold refreshments at the pool. Cold face cloths that are offered to you regularly. Sumptuous breakfast. Superb service. If this is 5 star, not sure what extras 6 or 7 stars could do. Treat yourself and you will not be disappointed.

Total chaos, the food in all the restaurants was just not worth the money, definitely not 5 * quality. It would take about 30 minutes every time to get our car. Nobody in sight out in the pool when ever we needed something. and the check in and check out...oh my God! takes ages!

If you're a sucker for luxury hotels then Shangri La's Barr Al Jissah Resort is a must stay in Muscat! Breathtakingly beautiful property, exotic location! Their pool area is an absolute must to chill in provided you hit the pool by 4pm; specially their lazy pool. Some good restaurants inside too! Spacious Rooms, friendly staff.
