We stayed here with friends at the end of a cruise, we arrived just after 10am and we were very lucky as our rooms were ready. The check in was very smooth and we were quickly shown to our room. The room was very spacious with a large bathroom with separate shower and bath. The hotel is part of the Shangri la complex, if you stay in the Al Husn you can use all the facilities and restaurants in the other hotels. The staff were very polite and helpful in the bars and restaurants that we used. He beaches are beautiful and I preferred them to any beaches I had been at on the palm Dubai. I thought that once I had visited Oman once that would be it, but having stayed here I want to go back again Collapse

On paper the Al Husn has all the attributes of a 5* hotel but the difference between an adequate 5* and a truly luxurious property is harder to pin down. There were positives about this hotel but also too many negatives. My 21 year old daughter and I arrived for a six night stay. Despite arriving at the hotel before 9am a room was ready for us, this is a huge bonus after an overnight flight. Check in was smooth although the lobby smells very strongly of the insense which is continually burned. It may be personal taste but for the duration of our stay I found this to be oppressive and it smelled rather unpleasant. The member of staff who checked us in asked if we would like to upgrade our room to a sea view for a small extra nightly fee. We declined and were shown our room. ROOM This is pretty much as advertised and was not a surprise. The rooms are of a good size with adequate bathrooms and storage, although a single sink in the bathroom is a little stingy. As other people have noted the rooms could do with a refurb as they are looking a little tired and dated. Our initial room was 1206 and as we were to discover was directly above building work (new Spa still not finished). The noise of drilling and hammering was loud and continual. The hotel were quick to move our room when we complained but as they clearly had other rooms available it begs the question why put anyone in that area? Housekeeping was adequate although our first room was also very dusty but this may once again have been due to building work. We had to request turndown a couple of times and found that the room wasn’t cleaned until after lunch on a couple of occasions. As advertised the mini bat is complimentary and was kept stocked. RESTAURANTS The hotel has two main restaurants other than the pool and beach bars. The Sultanah and the Shahrazad. These both lead off from the same reception and in terms of appearance and style are disappointing. Inside where breakfast is served the carpets are stained and outside the design means you can be sitting looking at a wall or overlooking bins and service areas below. This lack of charm and design was apparent throughout the hotel and my daughter summed it up best when she said it resembled an airport hotel. Breakfast itself was fine with a good choice on offer although the pastries tended to taste a little stale. We had dinner at Shahrazad which again was fine but service let it down - this was a recurring theme. We had ordered the mixed mezze as a starter and when it arrived was just plonked down with no explanation. I tried to ask the server if he could explain the various dishes but his English was non existent. He did bring our original waiter to the table and when I asked if he could explain the dishes he said “lamb, lamb, cheese, cheese, spinach, spinach!” We were due to eat here again on our last night but cancelled. Our dinner at Sultanah was poor. Both my daughter and I ordered the Banana Tarte Tatin which is described on the menu as caramelised banana on top of crispy pastry. In reality we had stewed banana atop something soggy and crumbly. Neither of us at this and when the waiter asked us if we liked it we said no, it was inedible. He took it away and came back and said the Chef has made some alterations to the menu and what did we think! To the restaurants credit they did not charge us for the desserts. Both the beach and pool restaurants were better with good food and the setting of the beach bar was very pretty. Unfortunately neither of these served food in the evenings. Missing was a pleasant bar to sit and have a cocktail - the free cocktail hour was held in the courtyard at the hotel which is set out with rows of seats rather resembling the BA lounge at Heathrow! POOL/BEACH Both these are pretty and generally well served. The cool boxes and cold towels etc are a nice touch, although pretty much what you would expect. Staff were available to make up your subbed at the beginning of the day but unlike other hotels we have stayed in they did not come by with dry towels or tidy beds while we were swimming or having lunch. SPA The new Spa has still not opened despite the fact that following a request prior to our arrival the new Spa menu was emailed to me! However the Chi Spa located by the Al Bandar was excellent. OVERALL We were not impressed with the Al Husn. It seems to have fallen into a rut - the majority of its clients were couples in their 60’s who seemed the enjoy the familiarity of what was offered but the hotel lacked polish and so did the staff. Interestingly we had a couple of evenings at the Piano Bar at the Al Bandar which felt much more sleek and up to date. Staff there -particularly Ria who recognised us after our first visit and remembered our drinks! - were more professional, glasses had been chilled prior to pouring a drink etc. It felt as if more money had been spent on maintaining/modernising this hotel than the Al Husn. We had lunch at Circles one day too and service was much sharper than that at the Al Husn and I noted misters were in use to cool people down - I didn’t notice these at the Al Husn. In short this hotel is not for us although it seemed to suit many of the retirees who were enjoying the sun. If you are expecting a luxury hotel such as a Four Seasons, Banyan Tree or Rosewood you will be disappointed. Collapse

We recently went for 4 nights to celebrate our anniversary and totally fell in love with this place. We stayed in the 1 bedroom suite which overlooked the sea! Right from the view from the room, to the food to the hospitality- it surpassed our expectations in every way. What i loved was the attention to detail-e.g. ice buckets and cold towels given out while you are chilling at the beach. One day while we were waiting for the golf cart to take us for dinner, within a matter of 5 minutes 3 people came to check on what was causing us to wait. Ultimately the GM took a golf cart himself and drove us. Would highly recommend. Collapse

We stayed at Al Husn the week before Xmas 17. The resort is nice and the one-bedroom suite is large and nice furnished. The private beach for the residents of the Al Husn is lovely; but there were four different wedding parties in the sister hotels over 6 days and the noise of the music blurring out in the afternoon and evening was too loud and frankly irritating. The food is average. We ended up sending back a few dishes when we ate at the tapas restaurant. We did enjoy our two dinners at Scheherazade though. They were also in the process of building a new gym, which will be good as the old one was small and tired. Not sure we would go back Collapse

The Al Husn is a self-contained luxury hotel within the larger Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah resort. The hotel is truly wonderful - it is quiet, luxurious and has everything a guest could want. We started our trip off in style with the hotel's Bentley Flying Spur picking us up at the airport. The hotel is primarily aimed at adults and as a result it has a very relaxed feel. I stayed in a fabulous one-bedroom suite with an enormous balcony with stunning views of the bay - I would have been happy not to leave the suite for the duration of my stay, but to do so would have missed out on some of the other things the hotel has to offer. Both restaurants in the Al Husn are wonderful - the food is of exquisite quality, expertly prepared and bursting with flavour and textures. The hotel also has a great pool and an amazing beach - the water was so warm. The beach bar serves great food and offers some welcome shade. Every one of the staff made us feel special, welcome and valued. I had a lengthly conversation with the hotel manager, Milan, and it's clear that he really cares about delivering the highest quality experience to his guests - he achieves this with considerable flair.
