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.

Excellent hotel even at times difficult times

Essex, United Kingdom

This was a one off holiday to celebrate my 60th birthday. The staff were extremely welcoming as we arrived. Our room was ready & waiting for us even though it was only 9am. The room was perfect, with everything you could want for, plus very clean. We were there for 1 week the staff were courteous and helpful. There was afternoon tea every day if you wanted it, our favourite part of the day was the drinks in the courtyard before dinner, it's a lovely setting, with more than ample drinks served to you. The service at the pools or the beach was excellent, someone was there to put towels on your sunbeds, then cold boxes brought over, with ice cold bottles of water, a lemon and mint drink and an orange drink, plus a cool spray. We were there as the Coronavirus hit, on our last day we were told we would have to leave the beach and go to our rooms, afternoon tea would be brought round to everyone, plus the evening drinks, which they did in a very polite & cheerful way. Everyone had to have room service for their evening meals, again the service couldn't be faulted, not too much of a pain having your dinner delivered, then all set up for you on your balcony over looking the sea. Our time was up, we left for home the following morning, so it didn't really make too much difference to us. I would like to express my thanks and best wishes to the staff for making it such a wonderful holiday especially at such difficult times and hope they will soon be back to normal service. Take care

An excellent hotel in every way

Letchworth, United Kingdom

My wife and I spent 9 days at Al Husn in late Feb/early Mar and we enjoyed it immensely. Our room overlooked the Gulf of Oman and the mountains from a generous balcony. The room was very clean, everything was well maintained and worked perfectly. The bathroom/dressing room had seperate toilet and shower cubicles as well as a bath and the toiletries were all supplied by L'Occitane. The mini bar had plenty of soft drinks water and beer as well as Pringles, assorted nuts and chocolates, all of which were free. Other reviews have mentioned the prohibitive cost of the spirits and if you wish to drink G & Ts in your room I would suggest picking up a bottle of duty free on the way out. All the corridors and public rooms were very clean and attractive. We opted for half board which I think was a wise move. This provided us with a free dinner in the buffet restaurant including two drinks. Apart from the two 'sister hotels' there were no other restaurants nearby and you would need a taxi to get to any others (I believe). There were a number of other restaurants to choose from but they were all quite expensive. We did use the buffet restaurant for dinner one evening which we enjoyed but it was not to the same standard as the other Al Husn restaurants. If one chose to dine in the better restaurants an allowance of roughly £50 pp was deducted from the cost. We ate in the Capri Court, the Sultana and the Shahrazad restaurants each evening and the food alone always exceeded our £100 allowance. However the quality of the food, presentation and service were always excellent. A bottle of still water worked out to be about £7 inc taxes and service and could not be included in the allowance The breakfast were always well laid out and the cooked dishes were served. Eggs Bendict and the smoothies were particular favourites of mine although I do find turkey bacon and chicken sausages difficult to like. Once again the service was faultless. After our large breakfast we did not feel the need for lunch and saved our appetite for the beautifully presented afternoon tea. Before dinner most of the guests sat in the courtyard where complementary drinks and canapes were served whilst listening to a live duet. The service was as always excellent and my wife was regularly declining a top up of her Prosecco. The canapes were freshly prepared in the courtyard and the waiters took the trouble to explain the fillings. Most evening a member of the hotel staff would circulate to check that gusts were enjoying their holiday. The pool in Al Husn was a pleasant temperature and the view from the infinity pool was beautiful. As the hotel is adults only the atmosphere in and around the pool was relaxed. The staff at the pool were quick to set up loungers with towels and unbrellas and to bring cool boxes with complimentary water etc. There was never a shortage. We spent half a day in Muscat and visited the Souk, the Opera House, the Mosque and the fish market. Having visited souks, opera houses and fish markets in other cities and the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi I would not recommend this trip. We also had a day excursion into the mountains which was quite long and tiring but it enabled us to see another side of Oman and experience the great views high up in the mountains and some of the less developed villages. In summary we really enjoyed our stay at Al Husn and would totally recommend it. However if you drink in the bars and have wine with your meals you might find that the final bill is quite high. Don't forget that govenment taxes and service chages are added to all prices.
