The hotel is lovely, the staff are excellent and the breakfast was very good.
Muscat is very spread out and if you don't have a car it is taxis everywhere. I prefer being able to walk to restaurant/cafe options. We did walk out of the resort once or twice, and found/stumbled across a nice Indian restaurant nearby. Other local options were difficult to find without local knowledge and the hotel tends to advise well known restaurants in Muttrah or the Embassy area that anyone can find on websites. This is probably more to do with the clientele that they have rather than the staff, I'm just a little more adventurous I think.

The resort is not close to town, but you should rent a car anyway. The staff is kind and attentive and everything is clean. Don't expect excitement but is a beautiful place to relax and to base your series of expeditions around Salalah.

Cost of wifi, when available, was extortionate, as were any extras such as laundry services and alcoholic beverages.
Quite a bit of walking is involved getting between facilities. Definitely need a car as it's about 20 minute drive from Salalah and absolutely nothing else around.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay probably because I went 'off location' each day after breakfast - returning late afternoon for time on beach before buffet- style dinner which was reasonably priced. All food was excellent with good selections from differing cuisines.

"Living in Dubai, this is like a different world!!"
A short break on the other coast from Dubai - very natural sitting below the mountains this is a great place to go for a break. Very relaxing and not overcrowded. Pool or beach this delivered exactly what was needed.

"Good for Families but not sure about the 5 stars.."
There is nothing really major to complain about. We got everything we asked for and staff were really friendly all the way from check in to the waiters at all the restaurants. Food was really good and service was quick, but restaurants were a bit over priced.
The best part is the whatsapp service, you can basically chat at any time and ask for whatever you need and you always get almost instant response, so no need to call anyone.
We have been to many 5 stars hotels, and although I cannot point out specific issues, this hotel is a dog place to spend 2-3 night, a great 4+ hotel, but not a 5 stars. I think the place needs more work and the staff more training to better reflect the premium treatment of 5 star hotel. Small mistakes here and there cause some inconvenience, specially when you are paying the bill of a 5 Star resort.
