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...

We didn't stay in the resort. This review is only for (Khalab) the restaurant in Al Nahda Resort. The place is very nice indoor and outdoor, the food was great, we ordered Diwani Chicken and Chicken Beryani.

We stopped at this resort for lunch during a tour of Oman. The food was served buffet style and was well prepared and of good quality. The resort facilities were neat and shady and indicated that the establishment is well managed.

We stayed over Christmas for 2 nights. Very nice large area, with wonderful trees and flora. Breakfast was good. The whole area has aged quite a bit and therefore there are not too many other guests on the huge compound. Not five star but a decent hotel.
