The resort is really excellent. The staff from front desk, the buffet breakfast and dinner, pool side and housekeeping should be commended by the company. Nothing was an issue. Being vegetarian the chef looked after our needs. The only slight down side for such an exceptional pla

One of the best escapes for family and friends were each member of the family finds his place and best activity to spend your day and night.
Exceptional welcoming and beautiful nature to experience and enjoy.

Was there for 4 nights and we were 17 adults with 2 kids. Muscat itself doesn’t have anything from tourist point of view much and hence we went out in city only for a day . The resort itself was time-taking as there were many things to do & enjoy out of which I loved the spa, pri

Two bedrooms, 2 adults + 4 children, we did not take any risk to discover Oman for our first time, and secured our stay at the Muscat Shangri La. Expensive but no risk of being disappointed. Excellent food, buffet or à la carte, but service could be improved = too much waiting

Does the hotel have ATM machine and does it charge a fee for use?
My answer is the same as the others, we never needed an atm and just charged to our room. We took currency also and what we had left put towards the bill.

Free shuttle - where can I get more information about the free shuttle Timetable, where it goes, time each journey takes, booking etc
The shuttle service needs to be booked in advance as there are only 15 seats as I recall on each trip, I think it does twice each day.

What is parking like at Shangri La and also generally into the town's, souqs etc?
The parking at Shangri La is free and convenient as it is just outside the hotel and there is always someone there to park and return the car to you. We had no problem parking around Muscat as there was always free parking around.

The hotel shuttle bus timings and where does it go to. I presume it's free for the hotel guest. Thanks
I would personally recommend driving. Car rengal is cheap. Its very easy. U get the freedom to go where u want. You have to use Waze instead of google maps.

Is there any supermarket nearby? Also is there any Indian restaurant nearby?
The resort is not near a supermarket (unless you’ve a car)). There are a number of small shops within the three hotels in this complex. It’s very easy to find Indian food in the resort; it’s served every evening! Approx 50% of Oman’s population is from overseas with a significant number of Indian people. The Indian food at the hotel was absolutely delicious. Hope this helps.
