I booked one night but took me two hours to check in with no apology or making it up for me and family. The swiming pool area is full of people and badly managed. Some people are swiming with full clothes and can get very uncomfortable. Restuarants and food are quite expensive and dining area is so crowded and noisy. Unlike other hotels, the loung does not provide any services and only for waiting. I have to say that I have wasted my time and money. Collapse
Very disappointing again!

Due to a cancelled flight back home, we booked a one night stay because the other option (Al Bustan Palace) was closed. So disappointing this so named 5* resort. After 45 min. waiting time, we've got our keys for the room. We finaly entered our room, but....the room was occupied by another family (!!). We apologied of course. Back to the check-in where they were surprised that the room was taken. No matter what, they gave us another room. Rooms are not very nice, they should be refurbished. Not worth the Shangri-la label at all. Sanitary equipment is quit standard. The interior cheap and damaged. At 10 pm: the buffet restaurant was a mess. Not one clean table, everywhere leftlovers from hours ago. Fortunately, we had dinner in Muscat downtown! A short walk through the garden at 10.30 pm: used diapers around the swimming pool, still empty bottles etc. We visited very nice and good hotels / resorts around the world, so we know what to expect from a 5* hotel. Our recommendation for those looking for luxery and a professional management: book elsewhere if possible! Read also our review a couple of years ago in the Shangri-la Al Bandar. Nothing has changed. The only good thing: nice surroundings. Forget the rest! Collapse

The Al Husn is a beautiful resort and I happy that they are official 'separating' from the rest of the Shangri-La property. To start off our stay (and to end it) we booked our car service through the resort itself (I think they partner with Avis?), each driver (to/from airport) was kind, informative, and became a great 'tour guide' to us explaining the landmarks and areas that we were driving by to/from the airport. Upon check-in, we were escorted to our room which was decorated with flowers, champagne, and chocolate desserts for our honeymoon. They had upgraded our room because it was our honeymoon and our view was breathtaking. They also decorated at every dinner reservation that we had which was such a sweet touch. Our first morning we did the half day city tour which we booked through the hotel (they partner with an outside service). Our guide was fantastic, added and changed the tour as we went (based on our interests) and really made us fall in love with the beautiful city that Muscat is. The 'private' pool and beach at Al Husn were gorgeous and quiet. I greatly appreciated the 'chest' of waters, juices, and Evian spray. There were many other perks that came along with staying at the Al Husn which included breakfast daily (which was wonderful, I loved our waiter that we had daily), daily high-tea which was a nice break from the sun as well as an evening cocktail hour. I will be honest, I was very disappointed with the food throughout the Shangri-La property. Both restaurants at the Al Husn were out of this world but the other restaurants were sub-par. My biggest mistake was that I made reservations in the Al Waha hotel and Al Bandar. We did some 'left over' shopping at the 'souk' and stores within the Shangri-La, we purchased a beautiful Persian rug at the resort along with some other items that we either ran out of time to find while shopping in Muscat or did not find. We also purchased a ton of frankincense as it is a traditional scent of Oman and was smelled throughout the resort - we could not leave home without it and now our home smells of Muscat and the Al Husn. The architecture of the hotel, the decor, the room, and the property, were all out of this world. We cannot wait to return again! Collapse
Blissful, adults only hotel!

Just had an amazing few days at this fabulous hotel, seemingly carved out of the rocks in a beautiful coastal location. It's an easy 40 minute drive, south east of Muscat. From our arrival to our departure everything was perfect.

Back again in a sea view room. Staff and facilities as good as ever. Met a great group of people for evening cocktails, good to have a chat after a day of peace on the beach. Returning in October for a significant birthday celebration!
