    Location 7.0 /10

    On the seashore, beside the archaeological site of Al Balid and 1 mile from Salalah's centre. The airport is 9 miles away. Allow 10 minutes for the transfer.

    Accommodation 7.50 /10

    The 119 rooms of the hotel provide equal space on the gardens and back on coconut plantations. They are rather small (160 square feet) but they have facilities that make them very comfortable: individual air conditioning, direct international dial telephone, satellite television, kit for tea/coffee and minibar. A safe is available at the front desk. The bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub, hair dryer, bathrobes and scales. Of a contemporary European style, the decor plays on the contrast between the white walls and the polished wood furniture.

    Overview 7.10 /10

    The Salalah Crowne Plaza opened in 2003 and consists of a beige concrete square tower flanked by wings on both sides. On the front desk side, it overlooks a pool decorated with ornamental fountains. Seaside, it overlooks lawns planted with coconut trees. The lobby is housed in a contemporary Arabic style, has a marble floor, and walls decorated with wall lamps and pottery vases. It extends through lounges in the rotunda with large picture windows. In the gardens, a large pool faces the sea. It comprises an area for swimming and another for bubbling. A small separate pool for kids is next to it. All relaxation equipment is provided, towels included. It is possible to relax on the tiled terrace near the pool or on lawns along the sea.

    Food and drink 8.00 /10

    The main restaurant of the hotel serves meals buffet-style in a large room, decorated in blond wood, overlooking the pool and gardens. It extends onto a terrace Dishes are inspired by Arabic and international cuisine. For la carte lunch or dinner, another option is proposed under a seaside pergola. Lovers of dinners with music can also eat indoors, at the la carte restaurant where a band plays every night. The cuisine is Mediterranean.

    Beach 7.75 /10

    The hotel overlooks Salalah public beach. Very spacious, it stretches for 9 miles and is 160 feet wide. It overlooks the city of Salalah (which can be reached in 15 minutes by walk) at one end; it ends facing the docks of the commercial port away from the other side.
    Relaxing on the beach is not recommended because of the wind that regularily sweeps the sand. This is why the hotel has not installed leisure facilities there.
    Those who want to swim in the sea have to be cautious: you must be wary of currents that can sweep you out to sea.

    To know

    The Salalah Crowne Plaza is on the site of the former Holiday Inn Hotel, one of the first that opened in Salalah. It enjoys a privileged location.
    Situated along the beautiful beach of Salalah, it is adjacent to the lagoon and the archaelogical Al-Badia site. This natural and cultural heritage is protected by Unesco. At the rear of the hotel, along the road leading to the city centre, there are coconut and papaya plantations.
    The Salalah Crowne Plaza is an address to remember if you want to stay both at the seaside and close to sites to explore in the city.
