The first of five hotels to be opened at the massive 6.2 million square meter development at Sifah, the Jebel Sifawy hotel is now finished, and set to open on Friday. The hotel has 55 rooms and has earned a 4* status and prices are starting at RO 65.000 per night when I just checked their website.
A word of warning though - as nice as the hotel is, they have yet to obtain their liquor license, so if you fancy a drink while relaxing - bring your own for the mean time. I understand that the license application and approval is in the final stages, and so it wont be a problem in the near future. The road is also not very car-friendly - it's possible to drive there in a car, but I'd recommend either using an all-terrain rental car (ie one you dont actually care about), or an actual SUV.
Now, tonight TGI Fridays are having a private launch, but tomorrow, the doors open to the general public.... I recommend their chicken wings :)
Have a good weekend.
