What a great place to stay! Beautiful view. So peacefull and amazing. The service was very, very good end the people very friendly. The food was also very good. The pool is amazing!! The cabins are oké. Not extreem luxurieus but sufficiënt and modern. The floor was damaged so we had to be carefull with bare foot in the room. The door jammed because of the damaged floor. This was the only thing we did not like. I would absolutly recommend this place! The best place we stayed in so far!

The view , located in Jabal shams was an exceptional experience for us. As the name of the property, it surely gives an awesome view of the adjacent villages like al hamra and others. Staff at the property were so courteous and kind. Rooms are super clean and all the rooms have a beautiful view of the Al hamra valley. I am attaching some food 📸 also. Shashi , one of the frontoffice executives was with us all the time. Great efforts by The View

On our Oman trip we stayed one night in the front premium cabins (#25 and #26). Indeed, the view is exceptional, in particular around sunset and during the night. Enjoy it either on your balcony, in the bathtub or swimming pool. Dinner was very tasty and our extra Indian dishes were freshly prepared at request without extra charges. The rooms were clean but need to be refurbished. During Ramadan lunch and breakfast was served in the room, hence the quality was not that great. However, all over all The View is a great place and recommended to be part of your trip in Oman.

The hotel view is exceptional. We stayed in a front premium cabin (#30) with a balcony that faced out on to the valley and mountains... what a view! They have a comfy lounge chair and a table with two chairs on the balcony so you can enjoy the view while sipping on some tea or coffee. Buffet breakfast and dinner was great and changed each day. It's a dry hotel so if you like a glass of wine you won't get that. However, everything else was amazing including the service. The room was spacious, they gave us an extra bed for our 12 year old daughter and it didn't feel cramped. The bathroom had a bathtub and separate shower which was great, with a full window view too! After a day of hiking on Jebel Shams the hot bath was much needed and the view while taking a bath was just icing on the cake. :)

The hotel‘s name is saying it all: The view from the hotel into the valley and to the surrounding mountains is absolutely stunning. Especially around sunset and during night it is nearly magic. We staid there for two nights in March 2022. Unfortunately, the rooms are not in a perfect condition. The were clean but we thought that the rooms and the whole facility were lacking some attention with regard to its appearance. With a close look at the room, the sunbed at the pool or grounds in general you could spot a lot of smaller imperfections which could be removed with a little care. This was a pity as the overall design of the hotel is really nice but was somewhat disturbed by things like sunbeds with broken headrests. The restaurant if offering a buffet service for breakfast and dinner and has an a la carte service during the day. The food was good but not great - we would were missing a little bit of love and care. However, sitting on the restaurant‘s terrace and enjoying the view to the valley is fantastic and if the food would have a little bit of a twist it would be a perfect dinner or breakfast.

The place is nicely located and the Resort Manager Mr. Abbas is very helpful. Easily accessible. The place has breathtaking view of the valley below. Also one can enjoy the sunrise and sunset. The nights are cool and quiet. One can enjoy very good food with the view of the town below. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We had vegetarian requirements and they arranged the same which was delicious and filling. Chef Jakhir is very good cook. Overall 5 out of 5. Must see for all.

Simple but clean and comfortable "pods" with balconies and full height windows. There is an infinity pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We were off peak so one night and morning the menu was a little limited but a buffet the next day. Only negative is that there is no alcohol licence so no cool beer after a hot day sightseeing and no wine with dinner.

Amazing views from The View, and a picture perfect spot to take in the scenery. Our room (number 12) had an obstructed view though, so would suggest requesting one of the rooms on the front (25-30 would be the best). The room was fine, and the pool area was lovely. However the food was a bit disappointing (the pot labelled vegetarian rice dish on the first night turned out to have big chunks of chicken in it, and there weren’t many vegetarian options overall). You have to be half board staying here because of the location, so it was a shame.

The signages leading to the hotel through the rustic village were very helpful. The view from the top is just amazing and so so calming. It is advisable to have a 4x4 car as the last 8 km of road is off road. The check in was smooth, the rooms were well appointed and had a wonderful view from the bathroom as well. All precautions were followed for the Covid. The garden, the pool and the walk around the resort were all great. The restaurant was good and the food was much more than what was expected. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. All the personnel were there to go out of their way to help. Going during the winter may be cooler.
