Added values tourism
Apr 2021 • Family
Ras Al Jinz resort is a mix of eco-tourism, scientific and family leisure experience. The eco- tent gives you a calm and peaceful moments. Also the turtle watching tour adding values to your visit especially with kids. Watching baby turtles is really lovely and cute moments. Knowing about turtles means knowing about key creatures in sea life. Oman is a blessed land where 5 out 7 type of turtles come yearly to nest at Omani coastal. There sunrise and after sunset turtle watching tour, first one would be more excited if you can get up early 😉.
Also make sure to visit the turtle museum and know more about those important animals.

Revisit to the nature
Dec 2020 • Friends
Had an opportunity to see a rare celestial event organized by the hotel. High resolution telescopes were placed for visitors to watch Jupiter and Saturn in the same line, an event that occurs once in decades.

It was our second visit in a short span of 10 months for obvious reasons. A serene place to stay in the middle of deserts. Tranquility that gives you a chance to be with yourself, your family and nature.

Hospitality and food adds to the experience.

Tents are quite expensive/ price quality is not given
Dec 2019 • Family
The place is ok for visiting the turtle beach and the tents are nice when seen in the front. Looking behind its quite a mess: rosty, garbage, scarp stones, pet bottles, etc. The turtle reserve staff could be more service oriented and the receptionists are rude(“I told you already, etc”) they could be trained better how to deal with tourists. The guides for the turtles are rushing you through the tour and take not care if your small children are able to catch-up. You see turtles yes, but you do not learn anything about turtles.

In eco with the nature
Sep 2020 • Family
The location of the hotel is on a cliff side of a mountain that overlooks the Arabian Sea..
We stayed in Luxery tents ( A must choice for this hotel)
The tents had nice patios front and back and large windows..
The family tents are specious with two double beds. food was excellent.
The turtle reserve was an amazing experience for the kids. we could see many turtles on full moon night..

not good

I Visited the Museum yesterday and I really hoped to see something that reflects the lives of the turtles. the museum was simple. it doesn't contain simple samples of the turtles and few samples of tools that used for fishing. the tour withing the museum takes 3-5 minutes

A great experience
Feb 2020
This is a very unique experience. We stayed in the eco tents which were comfy and well equipped. It’s well worth taking the 30 mins to do the short walk up the hill behind the eco tents because the views are incredible. The food is buffet style and very easy and nice. The turtle watching itself was great but be prepared to be patient. We visited in Feb and were clearly told that because it is low season for turtles that there may not be any to see. So you wait in the main building until they get notification that some have been spotted on the beach and that it is safe to visit. The advantage of staying is that you will be in the first groups to walk to the beach. This was a great part of the evening - we took the 20 min walk to the beach and then sat on the sand while awaiting final confirmation that it was ok. This whole process took a few hours but the waiting was great - the stars were out and we were sitting in the sand. We eventually saw two turtles which was also fantastic. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, apologising that there weren’t more - but there was no need for the apology, the whole thing was a great experience

A perfect place for nature lovers
Mar 2020 • Family
A perfect place for family holiday to relax in the company of stars, untouched beaches, uniquely shaped rocks and nesting turtles.

Staying in the luxurious tents was a great experience and watching the stars while feeling the silence, away from the hustle and bustle of the city is difficult to find these days.

Quietly watching turtles laying eggs, covering the nest and moving back to the sea was a great experience. The knowledgeable guides made the trip more interesting. Don’t miss the morning session and the beautiful sun rise. It was just amazing.

Food was excellent and the restaurant manager and staff was extremely helpful. They served vegetarian food on our request. Everything was perfected to our taste.

If someone wants a unique holiday experience this is the place.

Definitely worth it!!
Dec 2019
We were there during the christmas holidays, so there were many people for the evening tour to see the turtles. The advantage of staying at the hotel is that you'll be in the first group to go to the beach. I think they organise it well and they really try to do their best to satisfy the visitors without disturbing the turtles in their natural habitat. We had some issues with our passports in the hotel, but they solved it very well.
