Even though we arrived at 2:30 am at Garden Roomz the owner, Salma, gave us a warm welcome. In the morning we enjoyed a variety of freshly cooked Omani and Sansibarian breakfast - more than you will ever be able to eat! Every single one was delicious and definitely worth a try! Salma then normally would sit down and give us a lot of advice and insider tips what to do and what to see in the area. By the way we also learned a lot about Omani life and history because Salma has already lived in this country back in the 70s when both the people and the infrastructure were very poor! Service is also made by some friendly girls and a Bangladeshi boy called Mohammed who has been also incredibly friendly and helpful during our whole stay!
At this place you'll get a first hand experience what "Omani hospitality" really means! We were staying for a whole week in one of the bungalows in the very green and quiet garden and enjoyed every single day! "We came as strangers and left as friends!" It may sound quiet cheesy but thats the way we feel about Salma and this neat place called "Garden Roomz"!

“Absolutely Wonderful”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The little cottages were well-equipped, very clean and spacious. The garden breakfasts were delcious and plentiful and we enjoyed morning chats with Salma, the lovely host. We look forward to staying again. We enjoyed the walk to the local restaurants for dinner and it was close to the city and the airport. A little gem!

“Welcoming”
Reviewed 24 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My family and I had a lovely time staying at Garden Roomz, we were very warmly welcomed and felt very comfortable, my son ( 3years) enjoyed the garden very much seeing the turtles and fishes. The breakfasts were very delicious and gave us a good idea of Omani cuisine.
Much preferred than staying in an impersonal hotel

Accomodations in small lodges inside a nice garden. Clean and comfortable rooms. To point out the excellent breakfast in the garden with many typical foods kindly offered by the owner mrs. Salma who is very kind and helpful.
