We stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks with our 5 year old daughter.
Our stay was during the off season so the complex and adjacent marina was very quiet which is just the way we like it!
The apartment is very well build, modern and clean with marble floors throughout, 2 modern walk-in showers in the 2 bathrooms, and a modern kitchen. We have stayed in vacation rentals in Oman before and the kitchen was always the weak point of the place. Not here: the kitchen is just like at home with granite countertops, state of the art Siemens appliances (including dishwasher) and all utensils necessary to cook the fresh fish brought home from the fish market. A clothes washing machine is also included.
There are 2 different beaches located within walking distance of the apartment, one protected by a lagoon so there are no waves, ideal for the little one, and the other one with normal wave activity, ideal to collect shells.
There are also 2 pools at the nearby Juweira Boutique Hotel that can be used free of charge.
Many dining options are available within walking distance: 3 buffets (Juweira hotel, Al Fanar hotel and Rotana hotel) as well as various restaurants. We particularly enjoyed the all-you-can eat barbecue evening at The Beach restaurant on Sunday, which serves grilled to order fish (various types), chicken, beef and lamb.
A rental car is recommended in order to be able to discover Salalah and the surrounding area: the fish market in Salalah, the Souk, Frankincense museum, Khor Rori, various fresh water springs (active during Khareef season), Wadi Darbat (active all year) and the Mughsail and Fisayah beaches towards Yemen.
With a car, also make sure to try out the buffet at the newly opened Al Baleed Resort, with an out of this world seafood buffet including grilled lobsters on Thursdays. The car also allows for regular shopping at the very big and modern Carrefour and Lulu Hypermarkets which have everything you may need (about 30 mins away).
We enjoyed our stay at Thorsten's apartment very much, and are looking forward to returning in the future.
