Salalah, Oman
Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

The rooms are spacious, the typical stay in a farmhouse. The swimming pool was not that great at the time of visiting. The restaurants were good but they have some strange dress code to be followed in the pub. The spa was also good.

We have rented an apartment in Muscat and decided to drive up to Barka for lunch at the Al Nahda Resort for lunch. We visited the beach and souq areas before we arrived at the Al Nahda Resort. The reception staff were very friendly and arranged for a golf buggy to drive down to the restaurant which was 400 metres...

First of all, the ground on which the resort is built is impressive. It used to be a mango farm, one of the buggie drivers said. Unfortunately everywhere you look, evidence of neglect for a long time jumps out at you. My room was very spacious. However the painting on the wall had water damage from the A/C above. The...

The restaurant is very modern and upmarket, the food was superb. It caters for large groups, there were two coach loads of us there the day we visited but few other guests. Service was pleasant, staff attentive. Free WiFi was a bonus. The bungalows and areas outside were a bit run down and shabby, can't imagine why you would stay...

The room was very spacious and comfortable with all possible amenities. The development of the resort around a mango grove is indeed unique and gave a lovely setting for us to enjoy our family vacation. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodative. The buffet was expansive and well presented.

Put simply, this is a failing hotel which has by all accounts been in decline for some time. It claims 4 stars and in our experienced opinion would barely rate 2. At the time of our stay the hotel was experiencing acute staff shortages. There was a considerable delay checking in because there was only one member of staff front...
