Overall, we had a great time staying at Al Waha. While I would say it is not necessarily up to par with other Shangri-la's we have stayed at (Hong Kong, Makati, Boracay, Mactan) in terms of the five-start, Asian hospitality, it is definitely one of the best luxury properties that truly caters to families with small children. First off, some...

This is one of the best repeat destination for us, being residents in Oman. This time stayed in 4 rooms as a group family members. Most of the rooms have balcony facing the pools, and few facing the beach. It's the exterior facilities that are dominating than the rooms/interiors. Amazing location, surrounded by Beach & colourful mountain. The lazy river...

We spent a few days at this stunning resort in April 2017. The location of the resort is amazing with awesome views of the mountain and the ocean. Our accommodation was pleasant but nothing to write home about. We had a family room which was 2 interconnecting rooms, again, sufficient and nice but not worth the price. The restaurants are...

After much sightseeing of old forts and souk visits and museums this resort was a welcome respite of relaxation! Not close to the city but certainly worth the jaunt over the mountain.
