Loved our stay
We stayed one night at The View and we loved it. The cabins are totally fine (yes, not super new, but clean and in good shape) and the view is breathtaking. The staff was super friendly and helpful.
We hung out by the pool for a couple of hours which was super nice. When I first approached the pool, I was worried because I couldn't see any umbrellas (and I burn easily), but staff was really helpful and set one up for me.
The food was also good.
Would stay here again!
Date of stay: January 2024, Trip type: Traveled as a couple,
Room Tip: The front row cabins are worth the higher price because the views are best.
Could not have asked for more.
We celebrated our team's 25th anniversary at The View, booking the entire resort for an unforgettable night. With over 50 attendees, every aspect exceeded our expectations. The dedicated team seamlessly coordinated our requests, the F&B team delighted us with delicious food, and Mr. Abbas, the leader, ensured his team went above and beyond. Not a single person had negative feedback, and our 25th-year celebration couldn't have been better.
Thanks guys.. these memories will definitely last a lifetime.
Oh and btw... the location is like the resort name... photos taken at the property was breathtaking.
Best Stay Ever will surely come back again! I love the dinner menu when we came. We will try to stay longer next time and with friends from other countries in order for them to experience the best of Oman
A place worthy of the name it possesses
My stay at ‘The View’ was nothing short of magical and, genuinely without exaggeration - life changing. The place has a stunning serenity and calmness that brings anyone the peace and tranquility they’re looking for. It is the perfect spot to disconnect and recharge.
At over 40 sq.m., the rooms are spacious with comfortable beds, brilliantly designed baths, fabulous terrace with relaxation chairs / pods but most imporant of all - a truly impeccable quality of service. I want to give a shoutout to the staff: Mr. Akbar and Mr. Richard (the hotel managers) went above and beyond to ensure my 3 night stay was as comfortable as it could ever be. Beyond that, I was truly in awe of how welcoming all the staff were and how embraced I was, from the kindness of Basheer (the gate guard) upon the moment I stepped foot into this place and to the attentive hospitality of Francis (the best restaurant head waiter I’ve ever come across in my life) and the chef Gakher who went the extra mile to ensure that my culinary needs were met and satisfied to the absolute fullest.
My compliments to all of them and hats off for being a hard working group of top notch, world class professionals in everything that you do. I look forward to visit again very very soon!!
The name not only promises a beautiful look, it also fulfills it.

Worth the drive
The hotel overlooks the city of Al Hamra and can be reached only through an unpaved road. A 4x4 is highly recommended to get to the top but the view is worth the ride. During our stay there were not many guests so everything was very quiet. We also had the chance to enjoy a couple of hours by the pool before dinner.
The long bumpy drive up is worth the amazing view
After a brief stop to take in a panoramic view of Al Hamra, my wife and I were driven up to The View Oman Hotel in a 4x4 vehicle. Driving on the winding and rocky road takes some time, but is well worth the journey to the top!
Once we reached the reception area, we checked in and were provided a complimentary glass of mint lemonade. This is a very refreshing beverage which I fell in love with during my time in Oman. We were then provided the key to our pod and our luggage was brought to our “Pod”—we were in Pod 7. The room was very comfortable with a large bed which provided a great night sleep. The bathroom was modern and was spotlessly clean. It provided a separate shower stall that was quite spacious as well as an inviting bathtub. The highlight of Pod 7 was our balcony which had comfortable seating and spectacular views of the valley below as well as the surrounding mountain ranges.
The grounds were gorgeous with lots of flowers, shrubs and manicured grass. The main walkway was a delight to stroll through on our way to the restaurant as well as the outdoor pool. For our dinner, we decided to eat outside; the staff set up heating lamps which provided the perfect temperature so we could enjoy the valley and mountain views. The dinner offerings included a variety of salads, vegetables, rice fish as well as traditional Omani desserts. I started with a vegetable hot and sour soup which was warming and delicious. For my entrée, I had dal with rice, garden salad, olives and potato wedges. The food was very good and well-seasoned. For dessert, I had rice pudding and a small square of the traditional Omani coconut cake.
Breakfast was in the same restaurant (the only restaurant on site) and offered a variety of fruit, baked goods, fresh juices, sausages and other breakfast items. I had foul mudammas, chicken sausage, fruit salad, watermelon juice and the amazing mint lemonade.
The hotel includes an expansive outdoor pool with lots of seating and great mountain views. The grounds are easy to walk around and there are only 30 rooms, so we found the hotel to be quiet and relaxing.
This hotel offers a special experience for guests, being at one with nature with delicious meals and a warm and welcoming staff.
As they name says: the view, wow. When you wake up with this view you can’t have a bad stay.
We had cabine 27, there is really nobody who can see you when you are in your room and that makes it even greater because everything is glassed.
The pool is great and the people are friendly. The only downside is the food.
