Arabian tent was clean and authentic! Dinner and breakfast were tasty, with a quite large selection of different food. Excellent location! But quite expensive for just a tent.

Great place to stay, very clean, good location, good facilities, great value for money. Only 2 drawbacks: Rooms get quite hot without AC even though outside is cool, food at breakfast and dinner is average, I recommend to bring your own and do some BBQ.

We had a great night up here. Watched the sunset from our chalet. Enjoyed the evening meal. Had a good walk the next morning looking down at the canyon.

Stunning place, but a bit misleading”
+ stunning location + open areas, pool (but it’s definitely not heated!) - our room was damp and a little foul smelling - contrary to advertised, there isn’t WiFi anywhere, except at the reception for about 1 minute at a time (then wait 15 min for another “opening”); this isn’t bad in itself depending on expectations, but I wish the Resort didn’t advertise it because it’s misleading (we were counting on internet to book our next night accommodation and almost couldn’t do it) - we were asked OMR 65 for a pickup from Al Hamra, which is WAY too much, almost extortionate; in the end we went up with our normal (not 4WD) car, which is doable if you’re very careful during the 7 km unpaved section Overall, we were contented with the resort, but frustrated with the misleading, tourist-sucking bits.

Hi ....a lovely experience. We paid for the ”
Just two things that upset us. The Shell station in El Hambra is a terrible meeting point if you have to wait for a taxi. On the way down our driver brought a friend without consulting us and he grabbed the front seat. We thought this very bad manners.

Jebel Shams Resort”
Very accommodating staff upgraded my group to Private Chalets from which we could see the sunset from our terraces. Food was good value for the price, i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets in a very remote location. Very close to the Rim Walk in Jebel Shams. Rooms were clean and had everything necessary. Mattress was a bit uncomfortable.

JEBEL SHAMS RESORT”
Way too pricy for the facilities offered. We paid extra for an extra bed - only to get a mattress !!! We wanted an early breakfast in order to go on a walk - which is the main attraction and activity at this location. The chef refused and gave us the meal times. No wonder many Europeans who came did not take the meals from hotel. We would have also made other arrangements if we knew the hotel was so inflexible - especially during a peak holiday period when many come to relax and visit the trails. Will not recommend at the very high price to anyone.

Nice surroundings, but the hotel not worth the money”
Bathroom needs renovation, staff in the restaurant were unfriendly, breakfast and dinner was not good. The only good thing about this resort is the location near to nice walks with stunning views.

Scenic mountain camp”
Great spot to stay on Jebel Shams close to the starting point of the W6 hike above An Nakhur gorge. Fantastic mountain scenery. It is a nice experience to sleep in one of the tents equipped with comfy beds and own bathrooms. The tents are, however, rather basic and a bit cold at night and therefore slightly overpriced. The restaurant serves decent food for breakfast and dinner (both buffet). There is also a nice small swimming pool.

This is a really special place, loved our stay there”
We only had one night there but it was really lovely, apart from the amazing position, the accommodation was superb, really comfy and very clean...the food was excellent and everyone so friendly..definitely a Whow place after dinner with the beautiful sky..exceptional..one small tip is if you going in December, January etc you need warm clothes...we were really cold outside, but rooms have heaters, would have liked a blanket each provided by resort to enable us to sit outside longer but not a criticism..

It's my second time here. I still like their location and accommodation (I stayed in mountain lodge type). However, due to the coldness of the winter up in Jebel Shams, with near zero degree Celsius at night, it'd be better if the resort could provide better heater and ensure that water heater in the bathroom is working properly.

Nice resort with Friendly staff”
Stayed her on a second trip to Jebel Shams; stayed in Sama Heights previously. This was much better from the moment we arrived. The rooms were clean and well presented although a little dated and fairly small bathrooms. The breakfast and dinner were very good and way better than Sama Heights. In fact everything in the resort worked and my mother-in-law even used the pool (December) and loved it. The staff made they stay and were very friendly and helpful. We will be regulars to Jebel Shams and will be using this resort every time.

We have stayed one night at Jebel Shams resort to do hiking in the nearby hiking routes. The location of the resort is very nice and 3 km away from the route of the "Balcony walk" hiking path. The dinner was excellent and the stuff as well.

Good vibes in Jebel Shams resort”
We did enjoy our one night stay in the resort. The location is amazing and peaceful. Rooms are nice and bed is comfortable. Also the food (buffet) is very decent. wifi available at the reception desk and poor quality. This was disappointing but somehow good to really disconnect ? Staff s friendly but not able to help on providing recommendations on the small treks around nor on the tracks to take with a 4WD
