        Beautiful Location”

        We went to enjoy the mountains and explore and hike. We got the Chalet and were happy with it except for the beds, which are very firm. Bring sleeping bag, or air mattress and you will be much more comfortable unless you like a rock hard mattress. Also in cooler months and extra blanket would be useful, or use the small space heater which warms to room sufficiently. Beyond that the staff is very friendly and the manager Salem is super helpful and will also guide you on hikes if requested. We used the camp fire ares by our Chalet, each has one and cooked over it two nights, and really enjoyed the evenings relaxing after busy days exploring the mountains. We checked out the Jebel Shams Heights resort and the Jebel Shams resort both near the canyon. While I think the latter is a much nicer facility, Heights is much the same as Sunrise, however their location is more full of tourists and trash and busy, while Sunrise is by itself, no cell reception once you get to the resort however on most roads leading to it cell service was fine. We felt the mountains and canyons around Sunrise much more beautiful and colorful than the other resorts. We will return, and explore more as there is so much to see. If you go and like to climb ask Salem to show you the way or guide you up the mountain next to the resort, and go up and over to the right and you can stand right on the edge of a huge gorge. Really amazing climbs and views and right at your back door.

        Lovely trip!”

        Spent two nights at Sunrise as part of my trip around Oman and had an absolutely lovely time there. The drive was a little tricky, definitely recommend a 4x4, but quite exciting to do. Had excellent service from all the staff and went on a walk (about 3-4 hours) around the small canyon, which is well marked out. The second day I drove round to Jebel Shams and did the balcony walk, which I'd also recommend.

        Hotel right in the montains of Jebel Shams”

        Location, scenary, quietness

        This hotel is located in altitude approximately 1h45 from Nizwa. Only the last few KM require a 4WD to reach the camp. It is around 15KM away from Jebel Shams canyon. Staff were kind to provide a chalet for the price of a tent which was appreciated considering how cold it gets at night in December. Dinner and breakfast is fine (for Omani standards), however do not expect any entertainment in the evening, it is not on offer. I would only regret that no particular sights are within walking distance of the camp.

        an amazing night at an extreme location”

        extremely quiet, close to the sky, sunrise

        A stay to remember: ensure that you have a 4x4 with good ground clearance and some offroad practice as an incredible dirt route brought me up to the camp (the last 8-9 km were the tricky part, turn left when the road splits up for Sunrise Resort and J. S. Hights Resort), air temperature down to zero degree celsius (December!), the chalet bathroom could not be heated and had not electricity- but the remote location and the sunrise compensated for everything; very helpful resort manager!

        The view, the helpful staff, campfire!

        We had a great time. The staff is incredibly nice. We had dinner and breakfast at the resort and it was definitely fine. We had read from other reviews that the food wasn't great, so we packed some extra food which we ended up throwing out. The food had a bit of an indian/asian touch to it - perhaps this is why other guests didn't enjoy it? We drove in a 4 wheel drive car up to the resort, and it was fine. We saw smaller cars also make it up the mountain. It was raining on our way down the mountain the next day, and we can see how in that weather it would be difficult in a small car. Also, being able to sit around a campfire was great!

        Good resort...but not in Nizwa!”

        Hospitality, calm, nature

        You should absolutely inform guests that the resort is not in Nizwa (actually 50 km from Nizwa), nor in Al Hamra (actually 40 km from Al Hamra) and that the road to get to the resort is not an easy one and requires a 4-wheels car. Not aware of all these informations, we have made the route by night with two kids: not an experience I wish anybody else. This is a fault from Agoda which should alert guests on such basics things: it is about out security and that of our children.

        The location is at an amazing place. You get to see more than you ask for of the grand canyon. The road is not paved hence it is very hard to get,make sure you reach there before sunset. On the way still has lot to see so its worth it. It gives both great view of sunset and sunrise. We went during winter time, Jan 2018. The place had small heater which wasn’t quite enough. So better take every warm clothes you have in your household. We first booked the tent but it wasnt quite a good option for winter, hence Charlet is a much better choice. The staff are great, they are very very nice. Overall I would definitely recommend the place to my friend. But please have bigger heater on winter time!

        location, food, sunrise/sunset

        We had no trouble finding the hotel even though it was not on my map, because the signage was good. The hotel is very remote, but has beautiful views of the sunset and sunrise and there is good hiking nearby. Wifi supposedly existed, but we were unable to connect. I could not get a phone signal, but on the road nearby I could get one. The food was excellent - there was not a menu, they just kept bringing us out lots of different dishes. There was more than enough food. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were upgraded from a tent to a chalet. I was worried about the temperature being very cold in January at night, but there was a heater in the room and a lot of blankets, so it was fine.

        We stayed for two nights in this great hotel and enjoyed every minute of it. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had the family chalet and it was big and very clean, we had our own fire place in front of the chalet. First evening we were sitting around the fire on stones and suddenly out of nowhere the stuff brought chairs for us. We felt very welcomed throughout the trip and would recommend the place to everybody. SUV required to reach the place, but it's worthy.

Continue straight up the road to Jabal Al Shams and new signs for Sunrise resort, I wouldn't call it resort. Tents are in very bad shape and locks are very primitive. Take the chalet instead for an extra 10 Riyals. No fire wood!

        Location food

        When we arrived we were shown to our tent. We did notice that the power point had blown out and that the heating had also blown out. When we asked staff if if would be cold as we had no power in our room. He said we could move tents or if we got cold they could get us more blankets. We asked to be moved, which they did. When we moved into our new tent not only did it have working power and heater.it also had spare blankets and a rug on the floor which our first tent did not have, We don't understand why they would put us In the first tent, as we were at that stage the only guests at the resort. Anyway we enjoyed the rest of our stay, and only needed the extra blankets not the heating. We didn't realise that both breakfast and the evening meal are included in our booking and the food was really good.

        Needs money spent on the rooms”

        This place has a ridiculously grand entrance way and the money used would have been much better spent on the rooms. We were there in the winter and the heating was barely sufficient and we had to get extra blankets that should have been in the room in the first place. The beds were hard. No kettle in the room for hot drinks. No shower curtain in the small bathroom which got soaked during a shower. Basic breafast. This is the highest resort in Oman and the drive to it is picturesque. With some money spent on it in the right way this could be a much more pleasant place to stay. Fortunately, they don't overcharge for what's on offer.
