Such a lovely stay here for one night before I leave Oman. Beautiful hotel, incredible service throughout, small personal touches in the room and during check in and check out make it the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Expensive but so worth it for a treat.
it was amazing place. However some issues happened in our first day, we booked from agoda for a double bed room but somehow agoda booked it through booking.com and it book for a twin bed room. But the hotel compensated us with a double room and things went fine. tbe food was good but the dinner was a little slow. breakfast was very good.
Dear Yaqoob Thank you for mentioning our food and in particular breakfast. It is an amazing place! We will look into the issue with booking.com but happy we could rectify this. We hope to see you on the mountain soon Kind regards The Alila Team
Wonderful stay all round!!!!”
We loved tranquility, the fresh mountain air and the quietness surrounding us. The busiest we felt was at breakfast and on our last evening as there was a private event in place that meant the restaurant staff we’re stretched. But besides that we felt incredibly comfortable and relaxed our entire stay. So much do that we felt a little worried that our 2 year old may have been a bit noisy at times around the pool. However there was s mix of couples, groups and a corporate group that included toddlers to teens that meant our toddlers antics went unnoticed. Check in and Check out are superbly carried out. Fantastic Kids Club meant we visited multiple times per day not just stay!!!! Cannot wait to go back in the Summer months if we can get booked in.
Dear Natasha, Thank you for the super review, we are very happy to know you enjoyed the peacefulness and fresh mountain air Thank you for your kind comments about PLAY ALILA, we hope your toddler enjoyed it as much as you We look forward to seeing you again in the summer Best Regards Julian Ayers General Manager, Alila Jabal Akhdar Regional Vice President - Middle East & India ALILA HOTELS & RESORTS
Exceptional service ... again!”
This is the third time I have been lucky enough to stay and it's just as wonderful each time. Exceptional service, food and attention to detail. Staff were welcoming, helpful and efficient. It's lovely to see the gardens now that they are more established. There are now more activities, extra decking areas but please, please, please don't over develop. It's much better to keep away from having playgrounds and more children's activities!!! Hoping to come back again soon. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Dear Charlotte, thank you for a wonderful review, it was great to have you back again. We especially appreciate your kind comments about the team it is always a great motivator to get such positive feedback...see you again soon!
Best hotel ever”
We planned to stay one night at Alila and extended to two night as we loved it so much. Stayed at Horizont Suites where you can see sunrise and sunset. We travel quite a lot and this is the best hotel we have stayed in so far. Great restaurant, professional staff and good entreatment program. Will come back!
Dear Marianna, thank you for the perfect ten score, we are very pleased you had such a super time and we look forward to welcoming you back.
Most romantic place I've ever stayed!”
The swimming pool is as beautiful as a dream, with mountains behind in sunset. The food was great, though Arabic is not my favorite. The room in the villa is with great views of mountain. Just sitting on the balcony doing nothing is a pleasure. But we were not very happy that the hotel charges extra 50 OMR to go up and down the mountain. The hotel is only accessible via 1 hour drive by 4x4 car. In the end we found a local driver who asked for 40 for the return trip. Except that the hotel itself is perfect.
Thank you for a great review, we are very pleased you enjoyed the views just sitting on the balcony - a super to relax and recharge. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon to the Green Mountain.
Simply stunning location”
This hotel is perched cliff-side, right next to one of the canyons in the Jabal Akhdar region. The views are amazing, do not miss the viewing platform at the cliff edge. Food is great and there is a great wine selection now (some older comments are outdated as they are fully licensed now). Service is impeccable. This is a unique hotel in a unique location. Several excursions are also available from the hotel.
Dear Tom, thank you for a super review and great feedback, we look forward to welcoming you back to the Green Mountain very soon!
A Different Experience”
Absolutely breathtaking, all the way to reach there and continuing throughout the stay. 25 km away from civilization and 2 km up near to the sky. Not the typical 5 star hotel seen everyday. In fact, I would say, my surprise element was lost partly before reaching there, as I went through the hotel literature and photos. But I kept my family unaware of where they were going - elevating their astonishment. Go blind folded, to enjoy the hotel more!
Thank you for a great review we are so pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to welcoming you back to the Green Mountain very soon
beautiful location, stunning view”
It was very relaxing - quiet place, very cosy, and a beautiful infinity pool. The food was not as great as the hotel and location but the salad and desert buffets were great. Only the main courses were "ok".
Thank you for a great review we are so pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to welcoming you back to the Green Mountain very soon.
Loved the stay at Alila! Can't wait to go back and I'm sure we'll be visiting more Alila hotels elsewhere. The place was beautiful, quiet and serene. A lot of stars at night which was wonderful! Food is good, breakfast is great. A must stay!
Thank you for a great review and the perfect ten score. We are so pleased to read that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to welcoming you back to the Green Mountain very soon.
Totally recommend it”
I rarely write reviews after visiting a place but this one totally deserves a recommendation. The location is magical and very different from any scenery I've seen in the GCC. The resort is beautiful and the attention to details in the décor and service are simply incredible. Totally worth the 6h drive from Dubai!
Thank you for a great review, it is super to know that your visit was worth the drive! We very much appreciate your kind comments and look forward to welcoming you back to the Green Mountain very soon.
Simply wonderful. I had wanted to stay here for ages and it didn't disappoint.”
It was an absolutely fantastic stay. The attention to detail is superb, the staff are friendly and helpful, food delicious, facilities fantastic and the photo opportunities are endless. I would and have recommended this hotel to everyone.
Thank you for a super review and great feedback, we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and were able to take some great pictures. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.
Amazing place, unfortunate 9hours”
Had a great experience at Alila Jabal Akhdar celebrating a birthday weekend. The staff were very accommodating to our needs of setting up a private dinner under the stars and with airport transfers. We had an unfortunate time hiking due to incorrectly marked routes and received no help from the hotel but after 9 hours we got back tired, angry and frustrated. The hotel manager did everything to help us enjoy the rest of our stay including complimentary massages and a late check out. All else about the stay was amazing and incredible, but take the hikes with a pinch of salt.
Dear Annum, thank you for your feedback, we are glad overall you enjoyed your visit to the Green Mountain and apologise again for the problems you experienced with the hiking trail.
excellent but needs to look into some details on ”
ملاحظات على منتجع اليلا Towels holder in the shower room No hangar in the shower room Lighting in the room needs redesign Dinner starts very late at 7:00 Should start st 6 or earlier To have ample time for the food to go away before sleeping Water Hose in the bathroom is very short WiFi Internet is so slow and very weak
Dear Abdulhameed, thank you for you feedback, we have noted you comments and will certainly look into them. Omantel have now improved the internet connection to the mountain. Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming back the Green Mountain.
Lives up to expectations - even with the scary 60km of winding roads to get there and our crash course in 4x4 driving (little joke we were fine - it's the downhill bits you need 4 wheeled drive for - had to read our cars manual for the first time). Hotel is superb - great food, classy design, attentive staff and superb views - we are definitely going back
Dear Joanne, thank you for a super review, we are pleased you survived the drive and were able to decipher the cars manual! It great to read you had such a good stay and we look forward to your return visit.
We enjoyed our stay in the hotel, very nice hotel with an excellent view, helpful to relax. The only issue is the food (bad in simple wording), my wife got sick after having the dinner and one of the dish was tasting bad, I raised it to the stuff (not sure if they took any action because no one came to talk to me when I raised the issue). I will recommend this hotel in future however I will worry about the food side.
Thank you for your review, sorry to read about the problems with your meal, we can assure you we take these things very seriously and a full investigation has taken place. I am sorry that the Chef did not speak to you in person but he did look into it. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back.
Silence of the mountains.”
this hotel must be the best. We loved the silence of the mountains. It was truly amazing One could also hardly imagine that few meters away from your super beautiful verandah is a dramatic abyss. The drinking water in the room is served in the stylish glass bottles instead of plastic The soap is hand maid and hotel as a building is built from local stones and looks as if it blends in with the astonishing scenery.
Thank you for a great review. Yes, the silence can be deafening sometimes...we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back very soon.
Breathtaking facility and views ”
We booked a ridge view room. The staff is amazing trained and educated about Omani surrounding. Executive chef Daniel Johnson adds a personal touch to all his dishes - they have 3 greenhouses. Impeccable service - so many great people In this Alila. All the details in this hotel have been carefully designed to represent the North Omani Style. Sal water infinity pool and a 24 hours gym. They serve daily fresh ginger honey tea with lemon / it's a nice touch after an invigorating swimming. We had breakfast and dinner included in our package - the portion are huge but delicious
Thank you for great review and feedback. Chef Daniel will be pleased to read your review and comments on the food. We look forward to welcoming you back to Green Mountain.
Spectacular location - wonderful staff!”
Alila sits on the edge of a cliff with spectacular view into three surrounding canyons of the harsh and unforgiving Jebel Akhdar Mountains at around 1.800m. The road leading to it starts at a checkpoint at a wadi approx. 2h drive from Muscat and 0,5h drive from Nizwa. 4WD is mandatory because the road is very steep though in excellent condition. From checkpoint it takes another hour to reach Alila. The hotel is as nice designed as presented and it is nicely kept. After 1,5 years our room (26) was showing no real wear off. Staff is wonderfull and will take care of all your whishes. Guests are international, many Europeans but also many Locals from Oman, Dubai and other Arab countries. Most stay just for one night. Be prepared add half board (21.000 + Tax OMR) to your bill as next restaurant is located 1,5 h drive to Nizwa. What should be improved is heating for the gorgeous pool! With outside temperatures in late March around 13°C at night and 23°C at day, water temperature well below 20°C is not comfy!
Dear Carstan, thank you for a super review and some great feedback, I am sure many visitors will the information useful. Great news the pool heating has been resolved and it is now a balmy 26 degrees.
Amazing design hotel in fantastic location”
From the moment we walked in the place looked and felt fantastic. It was set in an amazing location and designed incredibly thoughtfully with the surroundings. All the staff were amazing and the sunrise yoga (included) is definitely recommended. 6.5 hours drive including all borders from Dubai, but it feels a million miles away! Very peaceful, feels like a nature getaway. Looking forward to going back.
Thank you for a super review we are pleased you found us worth the drive. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.
