What an amazing stay we had at Al Husn. This hotel is really special. The staff is superb, everyone is so friendly, so helpful, they anticipated our every need - even when we didn't realise we needed it! The hotel itself is extremely comfortable, very well kept in all areas. The pool is lovely, we were very well looked after by Parasharam (thank you) and much enjoyed the cold towels, the fruit, the sorbet and cold drinks. The courtyard is lovely, and so is the beach. Everywhere is pristine. The two restaurants are excellent and we also ventured down to the Capri Court and Al Tanoor, which were both very good. Super buffet spread at Al Tanoor (be prepared to eat - lots!) and great Italian dishes at Capri, with lovely service. We ate at the Sultanah twice as the food is so good and also enjoyed our meal at the Sharazade restaurant. I can't rate this hotel highly enough. We wanted for nothing. Yes, it is rather more expensive, by it really is worth it for such a great experience and there is a bonus with the free minibar and evening pre-dinner drinks..(And we also liked that children under 12 were not allowed in various areas - there were some remarkably badly behaved ones in the other resorts.) From the moment you arrive at reception to the minute you leave, you are made to feel truly special. We definitely want to come back. Collapse

I recommend others to visit if you like the sound of waves and relaxation. The hotel spot is marvelous and seems are incredible. I recommend Al Husn Hotel for couples for quite and enjoyable moments. Please choose higher rooms with sea view and one more things they offer more that others hotels such as free mini bar, two times free drinks. One thing will be more required is to have a half board from hotel if possible Collapse

We stayed here for 6 nights to get some winter sunshine. The resort has 3 hotels, the Al Waha, the Al Bandar and the best of the bunch, the Al Husn. This hotel has a private pool and beach with no kids under 16 allowed. We had a deluxe room with views over the pool and Gulf of Oman. Mixers, beers and fruit and chocolate are complimentary and replenished daily. There's high tea at 3.45 and pre dinner booze from 6-7 also complimentary, as is breakfast in the Sultanah restaurant. We ate at the Bait al Bahr fish restaurant, the Sultanah, the Sharazad (both in the Al Husn) and Asia and Xyro both in the plaza near the Al Bandar. Food and drink is, of course, not cheap but you get what you pay for. The food was terrific as was the excellent service throughout the resort. One night we took a cab into Muttrah to visit the Souk and eat at a local street restaurant. Terrific. At over £320 per night and c£130 a night on dinner/wine it's not cheap. But you absolutely get what you pay for here. Its a fabulous hotel, with great service, wonderfully friendly staff and a whole number of fantastic different food and drink options. We'll be back next January. Can't wait!! Collapse

The Shangri-la resort complex is stunning. It occupies around 1km of coastline so despite having around 600 rooms across 3 distinct hotels, the resort never seemed crowded. It was immaculately clean and the staff were without exception brilliant. We stayed at the al-husn which enjoys an elevated position and is aimed at adults only so for those wanting peace and tranquility it is perfect - it has its own beach and separate infinity pool. The sea view room was great, mini bar replenished daily free of charge and the flip flops and beach bags were nice touches. Our rate included breakfast which seemed to cater for all nationalities with an extensive buffet supplemented by a fantastic a la carte menu. Also included were afternoon tea, a proper traditional English selection including fabulous mini scones and evening cocktails. Plenty of choice on offer for evening meals. We particularly enjoyed the Arabian restaurant at al-husn and the bait al bar fish restaurant. The tapas place was also decent whilst the food at Asia was good although the ambiance quite clinical. Pretty expensive across the board for food although drinks were similar to London prices unless you have a taste for Champagne in which case you'll need a loan..... We booked a couple of tours through the hotel - the wadi/dessert experience was a long day but great to see two aspects of Oman in one. Dolphin spotting meanwhile turned out to be less challenging, there were literally hundreds of them! Both experiences were amazing if eye wateringly expensive but probably could be done more cheaply if done in advance and directly with the operators rather than through the hotel. Overall a brilliant resort and experience. We're recommending it to anyone who'll listen and will definitely return. Collapse

We stayed for four nights in November. After landing early from the UK we arrived at 8:30am and were whisked to our room immediately. The rooms are amazing, the bathroom has a bath and separate rainforest shower as well as dressing area. Dressing gowns, slippers, every amenity under the sun including toothbrushes, moisturiser, mouth wash etc. The beds are huge, there are English TV channels and a complimentary mini bar. The mini bar has nuts, salted Pringles, chocolates, juice, still / sparkling water, tonic water, coke, diet coke, Fanta etc. It is very well stocked! All rooms have a view of the ocean. The pool here is huge with well spaced out loungers, lovely poolside toilets and a restaurant (think burgers, club sandwich etc!) We only had lunch once and the burger came with salad, French fries and mushrooms so was easily enough to share between two adults. The beach is gorgeous. Again well spaced out loungers, a restaurant and toilets. Both the beach and pool are for Al Husn guests only. Each day you are given cold towels, fresh fruit, sorbet and a cooler box with juice, water and Evian cooling spray. Breakfast here is amazing. There is a buffet of sushi, Arabic delights, pastries (including a gluten free range), juices, cold meats, cheeses, yoghurts, cereals, hot items etc and then an a la carte menu. They have beef tenderloin for breakfast as well as American pancakes, waffles, French toast, eggs Benedict, omelettes, porridge etc etc. Every day there is a home made smoothie served in a champagne flute. Breakfast can be taken inside or outside in both the sunshine or shade. Afternoon Tea is a delight. From 3:30pm - 4:30pm it is served on the terrace overlooking the ocean and mountains. There are three types of savoury such as smoked salmon and avocado on sourdough, three cakes such as chocolate éclairs and two plain / two fruit scones with cream and jam. As the beach and pool loose the sun early due to the mountains it was lovely to head to tea. Cocktail Hour. From 6pm - 7pm in the courtyard there is cocktail hour. They serve red or white wine, white or rose sparkling wine, beer or spirits e.g. gin & tonic. There are also canapés such as mini fish cakes. There is also a live harpist. It's so relaxing and luxurious and they really do keep your glass topped up as well as do a final 7pm serving. This hotel is insanely amazing. Guests also have access to the other hotels and facilities such as mini golf and the lazy river. There are plenty of bars and restaurants across the resort for the evening. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a trip here, we only wish we had, had longer. Collapse
