This is the best hotel we have stayed. Stunning lobby. Very elegant with the friendliest staff ever. Would stay there again and recommend it to anyone. A must stay place if you are visiting Oman and Muscat.
This is a very nice hotel to stay in Muscat. It was pleasant from beginning to the end, nice room size very clean and with everything anyone need for a good stay. Comfortable bed, new modern TV, refrigerator, air conditioner works perfect, a bonus small room with a table and a chair for a drink or snack, shower with hot and cold water 24/7, great buffet breakfast and a wonderful attentive staff. There is a supermarket in front, where I could buy water and restaurant next door for a great fresh fruit juices. Thanks to all the staff in special the lady from the restaurant who seems happy all the time with a great smile and eager to pleases everybody. Also the location is good because it has taxi just outside the door and better you can walk to several sites because it is a flat walk. I almost forget, also it is very quite, so you can have a pleasant sleep night.

Great experience from check in to check out. Only point to be aware of is that there are actually 3 separate styles of Shangri La Resorts in one - so if you are going with friends or have children, you may not be able to go to each others facilities & restaurants. Al Wahda & Al Bandar are families, whilst Husn is couples only and though you have children can't use their private beach/ pool etc. This isn't mentioned when booking. Luckily, we booked the Al Bandar
Other than that - what a place!
This hotel is nestled in the mountains, very secluded from the hustle and bustle of Muscat city (the nearest ATM is 30 minutes away). If you're willing to leave behind the rest of civilisation and experience a wonderful retreat, then this hotel is for you. There are top-class amenities, including watersports like jet skiing and scuba diving, a spa (unfortunately we didn't get the chance to try this out), a fabulous swimming pool and a private beach. Our room was spacious and luxurious, and we ate
our fill each morning with the delicious buffet breakfast, serving everything from French toast and a traditional fry-up, to cooked-to-order pancakes and omelettes.
The hotel staff at reception were so helpful at maximising our time in Oman. Each day, they suggested and organised activities for us. Special thanks to Thomas from the on-site diving centre, who guided us through the unforgettable Wadi Shab, providing fascinating facts about the region as we drove through the country.
Overall, the Sifawy Boutique Hotel was instrumental in providing us with outstandingly positive memories of our trip to Oman.
Don't miss out on this little slice of paradise!

This a small and very personable hotel and not at all expensive. It is very close to the water and had lovely views. It was also close to shops, one of them being Muscat's Handcraft Centre which was great value. But the best thing about the hotel besides it being clean and comfortable was the friendliness of the staff. They were lovely especially the helpfulness of the manager.
The intercon is a favourite in Muscat, service is exceptional and the grounds are beautiful. There are a great selection of restaurants which never disappoint,and the breakfast in particular, is sensational
I've needed to change my room as my devices weren't connecting to the router on that floor, the staff gave me 3 other choices of the same room type to choose from to ensure my comfort. No extra cost, no hassle. They suggested it themselves and did not wait after making sure that the problem wasn't going to be resolved immediately. They gave good recommendations for restaurants and spots to see and go to, accurate taxi pricing and were overall very professional and friendly in their attitude.
