    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 Food is great and there is a great wine selection now (some older comments are outdated as they are fully licensed now).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.

    A Different Experience”

    Its location, building design and hospitality of the staff

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!
