It benefits guests with exclusive service like a private pool and beach not accessible to other guests of the resort, and contemporary Omani-inspired rooms are the perfect sanctuaries for living out a royal Arabian experience.

Blissful Retreat

Cambridge, Massachusetts

My sister and I enjoyed a relaxing couple of days at the gorgeous al-Husn resort in late January. When we were checking in, we requested a room with a view of the rock formation and the receptionist managed to find us exactly what we wanted. We just couldn't get enough of the stunning view from our balcony. One of the things that struck me is the wonderful camaraderie among the staff. During the afternoon tea service, we noticed that the manager was clearing/setting tables, taking beverage orders, and helping his staff however possible. When we complimented his diligent management style, he mentioned that he takes a hands on approach so that he can understand the challenges his staff members face and address those more effectively. Muhammad Russell, a lifeguard, was also full of praise for the hotel's management team and its commitment to encouraging skill and capacity building among the staff. He mentioned that as a lifeguard he undergoes regular training programs. He also seemed very knowledgable about the turtles that visit the resort's beach, as well as the turtle conservation program. He appeared to share the sense of wonder that the resort evokes in guests. It was wonderful to see how the staff take tremendous pride in the resort - this invaluably intensifies the atmosphere of hospitality. As I needed to leave the resort at 6am to catch my flight, I hadn't expected to have breakfast and was beyond touched when my 5.30am wake up call was followed within a minute by the unexpected delivery of a beautiful assortment of fresh fruit and basket of pastries. The front desk had organized this wonderful, thoughtful surprise of their own initiative. From check in to check out, Al-Husn and its exceptional staff truly exceeded our expectations.

Relaxing Family vacation over the holidays

Zurich, Switzerland

Great location close to Muscat and beautiful beach. Food selection and variety of Restaurants is good and of high quality. The rooms are a bit out dated and need some renovation, we were in the middle of 3 Hotels. A good mix of Families and Adults, not as busy as the Family Hotel and yet the Hotel for „Adults only“ is the best one of the 3 in the entire complex. We were happy with the Service and the staff was super friendly everywhere. Climate in December is perfect. Warm and sunny during the day, fresh in the night, you don‘t really need Aircon. All in all very relaxing vacation!
