We loved everything about The View from the room in a “pod” perched on the edge of a rugged hill to the lovely food and the courteous and helpful staff. The room had floor to ceiling glass across the whole width so you could sit in the bath and look out down the valley and the balcony has a comfy lounger and table and two chairs. As it was Ramadan we had breakfast delivered to our room and going to dinner walked through a lovely, fragrant garden. The chef managed a good blend of western and Omani food. The infinity pool looking out over the valley was excellentThe only drawback was that WiFi was not available in the rooms but the reception dining room and terrace were very comfortable alternatives. Great for couples - v romantic - but not really suitable for children. And of course it is expensive and you do need a 4wd to get there and some nerve. But actually the 7k off road wasn’t too bad just don’t do it in the dark,

Lovely but overpriced

A very comfortable place that is primarily (not surprisingly) about the view. We had the evening meal that was excellent and very good value for the 5+ courses. It was unfortunate for us that the meals were spoiled by two families that seemed to take over the whole atmosphere in the restaurant from the moment that they arrived leaving a number of guests clearly annoyed. The place is clearly trying to reach the top end of the market as the prices indicate and they have been let down in this instance by these families. No wifi available in the rooms which is unacceptable for a luxury place to stay. A lovely place to stay but the prices cannot be justified.

Great view at The View

The pool is amazing and I loved the “hanging” pod rooms, it really felt like we were on the edge of a cliff! Buffet Dinner and breakfast was great too, it had a lovely mix of middle eastern and western style foods.

Nice hotel with beautiful view. You have to drive up 7 km up hill on a dirt road. Doable in a regular sedan, but 4x4 is recommended. Dinner was really good, breakfast is OK.
