This was our third time at the resort, but the first time we stayed at the Al Bandar as our daughter is now older. We had five nights and we love the resort because of the range of facilities and restaurants. We really liked the Al Bandar because it is large but very peaceful. In the evening we sat on...

We stayed at the Al Husn, which is Adults only and had a sea view. Our package included breakfast, afternoon tea, evening drinks...

Really enjoys my business stay here, and have to say the staff makes it even better. Scenery is great, as is the food, and the beach is beautiful. Only complaint is wayfinding and connectivity between resorts.

This resort is gorgeous and when I visited Muscat (April 2016) it was probably the only luxury resort in Muscat, don't know if that is the case anymore. It is set on a cliffy area that drops down to its private beach (which I unfortunately did not have enough time to enjoy). The restaurants, in particular the buffet were delicious....

We have been going to Muscat on a regular basis for over 12 years and always stay at the Shangri la hotel. It has always maintained good service, with every member of staff trying to go that extra mile to make your stay a great experience. It is sufficiently far away from the centre of Muscat to enable you to...
