Lovely hotel set in idealic location with beautiful beach and pool. But greeting at reception poor and two long hairs found in two different meals. Restaurant staff didn't seem bothered about the hairs either.

The Sangri La Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa is located about 40 minutes from the Muscat International Airport. It is near the famous Al Bustan Palace in its own little bay sandwiched between the Indian Ocean and the remarkably arid (and unusually beautiful) mountains. This is a destination resort. You really don't have to leave it to enjoy your...

The setting is beautiful and whilst it is some way outside of Muscat (30 mins from airport) if your looking for a relaxing break by the beach it's perfect. The free use of kayaks was a nice touch and I was able to see sea turtles every day which was amazing. Remember to bring a snorkelling kit with you as...

Al Husn (no children allowed under 16,) has a beautiful architecture, infinity pool and private beach. We had a pool view deluxe room with a bit of beach in the background with half board...

We've stayed in Al Bandar 3 times now. Extremely relaxing. Great breakfast buffet. Great fish restaurant. Luxus Arabic and International restaurants at Al Husn don't offer as interesting selections as previously. Asian restaurant just closed but moving - fantastic food. Pools could use a bit of maintenance, but improved since last visit. Ocean fantastic. Spa was wonderful. Service personnel very...
