Paradise on the hill!
Loved our trip to The View! The pods are so unique, lots of privacy and a great view from every unit! The road wasn't as bad as I thought at all, so had no trouble in our AWD Kia Sportage. The pool was beautiful, and staff so friendly.

Fabulous setting and beautiful views from the room and pool. Staff were absolutely brilliant - all friendly and helpful and did everything to make my stay comfortable even with social distancing. There are some good hikes close to the hotel if you don't want to drive back down the rough road (although it wasn't as bad as I'd feared). On the down-side, wifi is only available in limited areas, the pool looked like it was due a clean and there are a few little bits of maintenance that make it slightly tired looking such as missing or broken lights on the walkways. At this price, these are things that should be fixed.

Great experience!
It was a great experience! One of the very unique hotels I have ever stayed in. It would be great if you could extend the check out and heat the pool.

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,
