The Shangri-la resort complex is stunning. It occupies around 1km of coastline so despite having around 600 rooms across 3 distinct hotels, the resort never seemed crowded. It was immaculately clean and the staff were without exception brilliant. We stayed at the al-husn which enjoys an elevated position and is aimed at adults only so for those wanting peace and...

Huge complex, of three hotels with different approaches. The whole complex is on the edge of the sea. Several pools and sunchairs to choose upon. The whole area is embedded with vegetation, trees and green lawns. An amazing environment with the sea on one side and dramatic mountains on the other side. We stayed at the Al Husn, an “adult...

Oman seemed like a good option for a blast of winter sun, and so it proved: an easy flight from London (soon to improve further with an impressive-looking new terminal set to open in Muscat), an easy transfer on excellent roads and lovely weather. The Shangri La is a purpose-built coastal resort (seemingly in the middle of nowhere) about 25...

We meet a seasoned traveller at the airport who said this was the best hotel he had ever stayed in - I would agree with this! The greeting and attention to detail on arrival was exemplary. The room was superb, bathroom and amenities immaculate. The staff could not do enough for you!

The whole staff was great, but special thanks to Khalid, he makes our stay unforgetable. Also to Walter from the Bait al Bahr restaurant for a wonderful evening and to the kitchen: excellent seafood platter!!! We will return P.S.: Little advice for the future: a quite backround music at the al Husn pool would be great!

This review is well overdue as, this is now our third visit to the Al Husn! We thought long & hard about where we would like to spend my Birthday & New Year's Eve this year, and it was a real toss-up between our top 3 'all-time favourite places': the Al Husn (Muscat), Kasbah Tamadot (Atlas Mountains) or La Residence...

This was our 4th stay at this hotel so we obviously like it very much. And this stay was no exception On arrival we asked for a late check out till 4pm which was confirmed there and then. We then went on to have a great 5 day break, enjoying the private pool with our own cool box and fresh...

Went there for new year. Nice touch free drinks hour in early evening with harpist playing in the courtyard. Also enjoyed afternoon tea on the terrace. Restaurants good but not truly distinctive. Could have done without the belly dancer... Definitely need to book the mid priced restaurants in the rest of the resort well in advance in busy periods. Picturesque...

We stayed at the al husn which is the luxurious/adults hotel of the three the shangri la has at the resort. The hotel is impeccable and luxurious. Staff are extremely polite and very approachable. Food and drink was superb. Room was luxury, branded sanitary ware and high quality furnishings and interior design. We had a sea view room which we...
