Went here for a conference and added on a few days to enjoy the beautiful location. Rooms were very good, clean and comfortable. Bait-al-bar had some excellent seafood with a great view. Having access to facilities (and variety of restaurants) shared among the three locations was nice for variety. My wife went scuba diving nearby and had a great time....

Dear DharmaDV, Thank you for taking your time to share your feedback with the readers of TripAdvisor your great feedback on the resort.

The whole setting of this beach oriented resort is spectacular. The beach, pool area, and restaurants were all nice, with the later being reasonably priced considering you were in a 5 star resort. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our room preference and worked with us on negotiating a fair rate for us to have room occupancy...

Reviewed 11 March 2015

This is the premium hotel of the three in the Shangri la resort in Muscat. No children are allowed in the hotel or on its own private beach or pool area. This makes for a very chilled and quiet environment - possibly a bit too quiet at times. It inevitably attracts an older clientele. We decided to stay here having...

We stayed three nights in the Al Husn hotel, as the over 16 only hotel of the three hotels in the complex. Everything about hotel was wonderful and covered by other reviewers. There is a fun lazy river between the other two hotels within the resort. I am not a buffet fan but the buffet at the mid hotel was...

We stayed at the Al Husn Hotel in February 2015. We had a deluxe room with a sea view which was right on the headland close to the pool. The Al Husn is the adults only part of the three hotels that form the Shangr La at Al Jissah and has features that guests at the other two hotels cannot...

This is overall a lovely hotel in a lovely resort in a lovely country. Amazing setting, and very good facilities. Al Husn is the "exclusive" part of the three hotel complex. Al Husn guests get to use all the resort's facilities, but others cannot use the Al Husn's facilities. Overall the Al Husn experience is good. However, for the price,...
