Turtle Beach Resort

$$ | Oman
Forty minutes south of Sur, the Turtle Beach Resort is a remote retreat with a private beach, on-site water sports, a lively bar, and easy access to the turtle reserve in Ras Al Jinz. The rooms can be booked with just breakfast, half-board, or a full meal plan, which would be your best bet considering there are no other restaurants in the surrounding area. Some rooms are more traditional, with palm-frond roofs and no air-conditioning or attached toilets, while other rooms are fully modern, with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning. The resort is popular with families looking to totally disconnect, so most guests are not bothered by the lack of Wi-Fi in the rooms or the total dearth of activities and dining in the surrounding areas.

Pros

  • Remote natural escape
  • Bar and restaurant on-site
  • Private beach

Cons

  • Not all rooms have a/c or private baths
  • No turtle-viewing on-site
  • No free in-room Wi-Fi

Wadi Shab Resort

$$ | Rte. 17, Oman
Halfway between Muscat and Sur (about 40 minutes from downtown Sur), the Wadi Shab Resort is set on the cliffs overlooking Tiwi beach and is popular with those who want to stay the night before or after exploring nearby Wadi Shab. There is a nice outdoor pool and a good restaurant that serves both local Omani delicacies and a basic, international menu. The rooms are quite basic for the price, but as the only hotel in the area, they can command these inflated prices. The stunning views make up for the lack of flair in the rooms themselves; every room has a sea view from the ideal mountaintop location.

Pros

  • Great views
  • Local cuisine
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Lackluster rooms
  • Expensive for the quality
  • No bar
