We stayed at this resort atop Oman's highest peak. Some of our friends pitched their tents on the camping grounds and braved the 2degC temperature. We booked the private chalet but was upgraded to sunset chalet. The property is clean and you can see that it still has a lot of potential for development. What I liked: spacious rooms, with...

This 'resort' is very close to the grand canyon lookout point, but don't build up any hopes. We were in a sunset room which as the name suggests is perfectly positioned to see the sunset. In fact, I can highly recommend arriving in time to see the sunset. The room is spacious enough but it is very sparcely furnished, and...

It was a very cold and chilly day when we went up. We decided to stay on the tent since it was more accessible to the area where we can cook barbeque. After cooking, we ate at the table right outside our tent but because it was freezing cold even after the layer and layer of jackets we wore, we...

Jebel Shams was really the highlight of Oman for our group. If it is not already on your list, it should be. The resort itself is a lovely place literally at the end of the tarmac road (with a brief stretch of unsealed roads that at times require a 4WD). It offers a range of accommodations for vary group sizes...

Hotel is badly in need of upgrading. Some of the fittings in the toilet and fridge were rusty. The aircon/heater unit was not working so it was freezing cold at night.

We booked this resort after reading good reviews here. We travelled as a family with children aged 3 and 5. I don't think anyone mentioned how far it was!!! It was a very long drive going up the mountain. Not so bad coming down. We arrived after dark. What struck us first was the freezing cold temperatures. Good thing we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jebel Shams Resort is located in the Wilayat of Al Hamra which is part of the Ancient city of NIZWA. The Resort is built atop of the highest peak in Oman. Jebel Shams is known as "The Mountain of The Sun" and rises to an altitude of 3000 metres. The most amazing sunsets can be experienced from here. A 4 x 4 vehicle is the recommended form of transport to reach our location and takes approximately 40 minutes to ascend from the nearest town of AL-Hamra. The area is home to weavers of heavy woolen rugs in distinctive colours and geometric designs. The views of the Grand Canyon from Jebel Shams Resort are amazing, ideally situated just minutes walk away from the Canyon and some fabulous Trekking and Mountain Biking, just some activities available to our guests. The temperature in Summer is ideal, usually around 30 degrees Celcius, which makes it an ideal place for a weekend break from the heat of the city's of Muscat and elsewhere for weekend breaks or a great place to explore for visitors around the Globe. Please come and visit us at our retreat and enjoy a wonderful welcome from our staff and take in the fascinating view of the Grand Canyon and the entire plateau. ... more   less
