We stayed at the Al Husn for 5 nights, before disappearing into the mountains - my only regret is we didn't stay here longer!!! The staff faultless, resort, room and facilities immaculate and Chi Spa the best I've experienced. There isn't much more to say really, a true 5* experience.

Dear Mark D, I am delighted when reading your review that you had a great stay with us recently. I hope you also enjoyed the trip to the mountain which I find absolutely stunning. Some people describe Jebel Akhdar as the Grand Canyon of the Middle East. Hopefully you will return. Regards, Mark Kirk

This place is an architectural marvel! We stayed on a ground floor room, in front of the pool. Behind the pool is their private beach. One can go there to swim in the sea; or just sit by the beach & watch the serene blue sea or meditate to the sounds of the waves. If you are lucky, you would...

Ten of us visited for one night to celebrate my friend's special birthday. From the moment we arrived, until the second we left we were treated like very special guests. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we could not recommend the Al Husn Hotel more highly.

Nice, quiet and beautiful location! Food was average. Room was very nice and spacious. Best part of the hotel complex is the lazy river with the inflatable tubes! Overall, the place is alright, nothing too special.

We were given this honeymoon stay as a wedding gift. Hotel is located in between the rocky coastline of Oman and has amazing views. Al Husn truly represents all the luxury that you can dream of in the hotel. It is hard to book any 3star hotel again after this experience. Loved it from A to Z!

We had booked Al Husn for 5 days and extended for another 2 days. I visited and compared with the Shangri-la( Al Wara, Al Banda) those are nice for families with children, but I do not recommend if you are a couple. The Al Husn is exclusive for couples, by far my favourite with a "higher level' than the others,...
