Al Nahda Resort and Spa at Barka, in Oman is a fantastic place for holidaying. I haven't seen any other place as beautiful as this. The price was very cheap, facilities were excellent. I stayed with my family for two days and it is an unforgettable experience for even children. Very good breakfast, rich dinner buffet
