This is a lovely resort, in stunning grounds, and with fantastic staff, but it wasn't quite utilizing its potential. The rooms were a good size and more than comfortable, we used the pool which is a good size with plenty of sunbeds, sadly the "bar" was shut but you could call and order food and drink which arrived in a...

I had a not so good experience. My family planned a weekend of relaxation at the resort. The experience was below average in most customer service areas. Welcoming and courtesy was not the Omani style. The swimming pool was shut down at 7 PM. The security kicked me out of the bar for wearing shorts, after I had placed my...

We were a little wary of booking at Al Nahda because of reports that it was looking tired, and there are now lots of other newer hotels to choose from. However, we really like the tranquil setting of Al Nahda and the opportunity to wander amongst the gardens so we went ahead and booked for 2 nights. I have to...

When we arrived hot and thirsty we were advised by reception to go and enjoy a cold drink by the pool. We took our bags to our room and the mini bar there was...

The report has great potential but we went for the spa to see the doctor and try and get treatments to assist with pain management. Doctor was away on leave - no replacement, receptionist didn't know address or co-ordinates of hotel so with road words took us 2 hrs to find the place. Service is mediocre at best. Mini bar...

I booked to stay here for a weekend with an offer and unfortunately the price was the only good thing. The roadworks around Barkha made the journey there very long. The restaurant was okay but service was slow and there was no atmosphere. I waited 40mins for the inclusive spa massage and could not book an appropriate time. At check...
