Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa

Oman, Middle East

The hotel

Catering for adults from 16 years and above, every guest gets the royal treatment at Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa, where you’re pampered with free poolside refreshments, treated to afternoon teas, and indulged with pre-dinner cocktails and canapés in the Courtyard a private evening lounge. They’ve even included VIP extras like a complimentary mini-bar and an iPod already loaded with your personalised playlist – giving you the perfect mood music for when you’re kicking off your shoes and sinking into the sands of this palatial hotel’s private cove, or sunbathing around its cliff top infinity pool. Meaning ‘castle’ in Arabic, the Al Husn stands like a citadel on a cliff, with fabulous views over the glittering Gulf of Oman. Its carved doors are guarded by sentry-like doormen, but inside it’s definitely more ‘glamorous’ than ‘fortress’, all facilities are exclusive to Al Husn guests from its regal rooms to its new luxury Hareer Spa by L'Occitance, and its elegant restaurants, with additional dining options at the neighboring sister resort Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa.

My experience began by being picked up from Muscat International Airport by the Resorts own Bentley. Driven by Abdullah, who was the most kind and generous person I have ever met. We were greeted at the Resort with complementary beverages to take up to our room. The room was fantastic, mine came with a complementary mini bar which was refilled at a time of your choosing. The stunning views from the rooms balcony really made it for me. Moving down to the absolutely beautiful infinity pool, I have never been so relaxed in all my life as I was in that infinity pool. The views from the pool area are as stunning at night as they are during the day. Two restaurants at the Al Husn resort; Sultanah, which has a more westernized menu and Shahrazad which is Moroccan cuisine. Both restaurants have amazing food and I highly recommend both. One of my favorite parts of this trip was the fact that there were no children so it was a very quiet and relaxing environment. I stress that I CANNOT recommend Al Husn enough and I will definitely be returning in the future. Read less

We stayed in this amazing resort for 2 days 1 night. Everything from A-Z was excellent. We booked a deluxe king bedroom, with a spectacular view of the gulf. From the moment you check in, till you check out, each and every staffs were giving their utmost service that they could rendered. The beach was a definite area to retreat and relax at. Complimentary beverages in room, by the pool and by the beach. We enjoyed the tea session and evening aperitifs. You definitely can't find anything amiss. Recommendable for honey mooners and couples. One of my best experience that I have had. And a definitely comeback. Kudos to the whole team for this amazing experience ! Read less
