This is our 5th visit since they opened, it is a perfect stepping off point to some key tourist attractions in the area. The tents have been replaced by beautiful "pods" with stunning views, even from the bath and loo! There is also a wonderful infinity pool, climate controlled. It is lovely to see the same team still running the...

Very nice property at 1200 meters altitude offering a beautiful view. Prestige room overlooking the mountains, very quiet and perfect for one or two nights. Nice swimming pool but cold. You can visit a lot of site nearby. Highly recommended and don't miss sunset !!

You need 4WD to get up to the View. Once there, you stay in modern designed cabins. Amazing view and nice atmosphere. Pool area is superb. Food average. A real treat if you want to see Oman outside Muscat. No booze.

We had a premier room and the extra money was worth it since this place is really, all about the view. Our pod had an expansive view, nothing blocked the 180 degree sightline. The balcony has a comfy lounger and chairs and small tables, all the more so you can sit outside and soak it all up. The bathroom is...

We stayed here on a hiking trip. The rooms were sparse bit clean and very comfortable. The pool was beautiful. The view at night was breathtaking. Too bad the food was just average. They don't have a liquor license so it is dry.

We managed to include one night at The View and indeed it will be a moment to remember. We arrive early afternoon and enjoyed the infinity pool ... relaxing sunset ... and the total immersion in the changing landscape. Sunrise also is included in the deal and even more colourful. Definitely include one night in your travels .....

Stayed for a night after a hectic day touring Nakhl, Rustaq, Wadi Bani Auf, Bilad Sayt, Al Hamra, and Bait al Safah. Needless to say, all the hours sitting in and hopping in and out of the car had us beat. We were lucky enough to arrive in time to catch the magic hour and a beautiful sunset over the...

A lovely stay at The View. Our room - or 'pod' - was comfortable and we loved the glass wall overlooking the view over all the valley and the mountains, whether dawn, sunset, midday, or at night, the view is sublime. Beds are very comfortable. The View staff are most helpful. Although wifi is not available anywhere except reception, it...

We had asked the hotel for a shuttle service (20 OMR return) because we were travelling with a normal car while a 4x4 is necessary to get up the mountain.
