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. The shuttle service was very good, the hotel manager picked us up at the agreed time and the drive up the mountain was a little adventure in itself. We have...

Pleasantly surprised when we arrived, bags whisked away and we were shown quickly to our rooms. Each room has a balcony with one wall of windows leading to it. The views were breathtaking from my bed in my room and also the infinity pool. The bathrooms were fitted with great bath and shower. We sensibly, as a group of friends,...

Please, don't travel to Oman without visiting this wonderful area! The dramatic views from this trendy hotel is something you won't never forget. Really amazing! Nice staff. Very good restaurant and stunning swimming pool! Somewhere you have to go! A must in Oman for a quite convenient price. Don't try to arrive if you're not driving an All4 car. They...

Amazing location, great facility, breathtaking view from each single room! The best sun set and sun rise I experienced in Oman! Make sure you bring your own bottle of wine, if having a glass of a good wine at your balcony in a good company is what makes the overall experience just perfect.

Stayed over Christmas: the first dry one of my adult life. Amazing remote location with cabins perched in the side of the mountain. Great for access to Jebel Shams. Rooms had wonderful views from your bed? As did the infinity pool. Meals were buffet style and OK. Could have done with the ability to order coffees and soft drinks near...

Hotel is visible form far as it is located at the edge of the mountain offering breathtaking views. It takes a bit of driving adventure to get there but it is all well worth it. Rooms are sufficiently specious with extended living space at the balcony that offers "the view". Staff is polite and attentive. Restaurant has outdoor seating with...

Manager and staff were very friendly and helpful. The location of the resort offers magnificent views over surrounding valleys and mountains. The food was excellent, too. The View is a splendid base to explore Jebel Shams, al Hoota Caves, Bahla Fort and Nizwa.

Having researched a fair bit before deciding on my accommodation (and reading lots of reviews) I wanted to give a recent report on this property. First of all - I would have to say the view is spectacular - day and night it really is awesome and understandably 'makes' this place. The drive up the mountain is very straightforward and...
