The hotel has been open 11 years but belies it's relatively old age. We arrived on a short break having driven through the monsoon from Dubai and had 48 hours of wonderfully relaxing luxury. We booked the family suite which gave us a good 65m sq of room. My daughter had the living area as a bedroom and there were...

It was suggested that we break the journey and have a stopover on our return from a skiing holiday in Europe. Although the resort is some distance from Muscat , we found the accommodation and facilities were first class. Geoff Wilkinson

Loved this hotel! We stayed in the Waha and got a lovely room and balcony overlooking the pool and sea. Breakfast is great, we had one at Waha and one at Bander. We went to the Moroccan restaurant in Al Husn which was good. Enjoyed the beach and our favourite spot was at Al Bander on the grass area overlooking...

I stayed at Al Waha hotel (there are three). Room was spacious, with a balcony and comfortable bed. There are water sports activities right on...

We stayed here for 8 nights mid February for half term with our 8 year old son. I am not a lover of big hotels, but as they go this one wasn't bad. Plenty to do for our son - lazy river, football matches every day, big swimming pool, lots of different restaurants, and kids club if you want it....

Before I talk about the hotel just wanted to mention getting a visa online before you arrive. The process at the airport took ages and we were told it could have been done online earlier and just collected once at the airport in Oman. With small children I'd advise doing this. We just returned from 1 week here. Me my...

Had the most amazing stay with our kids. Rooms and service was great. Breakfast was a bit repetitive. The staff in the kids club was very helpful and the kids liked the adventure play area in the heritage village.
