Al Maha International Hotel, Muscat

Located in Al Ghubra district, at the heart of Muscat, we stayed at Al Maha International Hotel during our Eid Al Adha holiday in Oman.

We chose it primarily due its location (within Muscat) and proximity to Seeb airport, as well as within our budget, siempre. 🙂

Al Maha International Hotel

The hotel isn’t really hard to find, but because I was swamped with paperworks prior to the trip (excuses, excuses), I forgot to print the exact location address of the hotel. All I remembered was that it was near the beach and the Grand Mosque and there was a roundabout near it.

Unfortunately, the apparent roundabout was under construction and it actually had many exits. T_T

In short, we got lost. :p

So we were circling the area and hoping to “discover” it then Sir Roger finally asked the local call centre for help, hehehe. In a few minutes, we finally found it.

We somehow missed it because its signage facing us while on the main road was quite pale, only prominent when lit during the evening, hehe. While the other entrance was facing an inner street. Anyhow, bottom line, we found it, 🙂

hotel lobby

Hindi ako choosy. I’m used to small hostels / accommodations especially that I’ve lived in humble dorms during university. Kaya pag may ganitong lobby, sosyal na. Hehe.


The receptionist was also a Pinay and checking in was a breeze. Or maybe she noticed our eyes were already closing due to sleepiness. LOL

spacious twin room

And with the rate we paid for the room, I wasn’t expecting more than 2 beds, a TV & a bathroom. So I was quite surprised with the room’s size. Pwede kang magbasketball sa paligid, hehe.

beds made daily c/o housekeeping

The room came complete with some complimentary water, e-kettle, mini-bar. Kaya yung travel kettle na baon ko, off duty muna. 

full service, chos

siempre dapat may TV

Didn’t take pictures ng bathroom, sorry. Basta complete toiletries, hair dryer, many many towels, hot & cold water, with separate enclosure for shower (no tub).

And duly noted ang housekeeping, even without requesting, we always arrive (from our roadtrips) to a very clean room, well-made beds, fresh bathroom, awesomeness. 🙂

From the window, you can already see the mountain peaks, abot tanaw! 🙂

The following days we still found quite sometime to explore the hotel and its amenities despite our very hectic schedule hehehe.

Sports Lounge

Health Club facilities

roof top pool

From the roof top, you can see the beach, 1 kilometer walk. But didn’t find time to go there. Excuses, excuses. Ako na ang tamad. 🙂

ayun ang beach!

Buboy managed to go for a swim at the pool while i just lazed around. It’s quite small but we had it to ourselves kaya OK na rin.

Buboy =  fish

At the ground floor, by the way, there’s the Business Center, a cafe (Kaffee Corner) and a  restaurant (The Steak House).

Overall, our experience at Al Maha was satisfactory, great value for money. Recommended for future stays.

Note: Don’t forget to print exact map location, 🙂
