This wonderful resort is really gorgeous. I really had a great experience until it was all RUINED by the attitude of the duty manager "Rasha El Diwany" at the check out. First of all, when I made my booking through Shangri-La, I saw that the hotel can arrange arrival/departure transfer since the hotel is around 50 minutes from the airport....

Dear Elmishry, Thank you for taking your time to write your review on TripAdvisor.

Excellent stay. Service was outstanding, staff very friendly and welcoming. If you just want to get away and relax on the beach or by the pool, this is the place. Breakfast was delicious, went out of their way to make me a steak every morning. We will come back. My only negative comment is the price for dinner, a bit...

The hotel was great. I stayed there for two nights. They catered for a honeymoon welcome package. Some of the walkways had some signs of wear, but overall the hotel was very clean, and the service was impressive.

I write this review retrospectively.... Having visited this place on at least half a dozen times, it is one of my favourite places in the world. It boasts 7 stars, but then what is there above an exceptionally run 5 star deluxe hotel? This is an adults only place and that's kind of nice if you're alone or with a...

One of the most beautiful resorts that i have ever seen. Situated in the Coast of Oman , the way to the resort is beautiful. Food is amazing , the service is great. Pretty expensive , but worth the Money :D. Great view of the Sea from the resort.
