THe Best!

Baar, Switzerland

This venue is unique, for sunset and relaxes. Locates in the mountains from Oman near Nizwa, Access road to the hotel is very curvy and caution is requested to drive; a four wheel drive is requested at the check point a police check point will accept or decline access if the car is not suitable. The venue, well decorated, with an excellent view to the mountains, sunset is unique not to forget service, attention and love to details, Spa is a must and swimming at the infinity pool overlooking the valley and mountains are in did an experience. To recommend the taste the Arabic restaurant, taste of food, service and attention are excellent. The best surprise is the breakfast buffet, you choose, between fresh mad juices, breads, and show cooking a small or almost a brunch. The hotel offers many services and attractions. Spectacular!

Stunning location

London, United Kingdom

After a longish drive from the airport and steepish climb in our 4x4, we arrived at this fabulous resort in the Green Mountain. Pros: - Super check-in experience with orientation, welcome drink and dates. Check-out was also excellent with various parting gifts. To be frank, the service throughout our stay was exemplary. - Beautifully appointed room, large bathroom with separate shower, separate dressing area, and stunning views of the canyon and beyond. The room contained all mod-cons including bluetooth speaker/music system, a Nespresso machine (with capsules re-filled daily), and in-room movies channel which you don't normally find at other Middle Eastern hotels. - The infinity pool overlooking the canyon was serene and magical, especially at sunset. Be careful with the sun, it’s much cooler in the mountains but the sun is extremely strong. - Buffet dinner was well executed, with a good range of items albeit a little repetitive. Breakfast was also very good with separate egg station and pancake/waffle station. - There’s an excellent spa, good gym, tennis court and a bicycles available for hire. Cons: - Some of the activities, such as rock climbing, are quite expensive. Others you can undertake yourself for free, e.g. the walking tour of the three villages (a route map is provided). Overall, this was a truly memorable place for our brief stay in Oman.
