Sifawy Boutique Hotel at Jebel Sifah

The wife and I enjoyed a romantic weekend-getaway at the lovely Sifawy Boutique Hotel which opened only 2 months ago (on Sep. 15).  Sifawy means those “from Sifah” and it is the first of 5 planned hotels at the Jebel Sifah project.

It doesn’t look like much on the drive up to the hotel as there is a LOT of work going on there.  That’s not surprising as the entire project, when completed, will cover an area of 6.2 million square meters with 2,700 luxurious residences.

The hotel, once you get inside, is gorgeous and the staff very friendly.  We were delighted to see that the staff was made up entirely of Omanis!

The highlight of the hotel is definitely the pool!

During weekdays they don’t mind non-guests using the pool for free but the pool is reserved for guests only on weekends.

This is one of the 30 Marina Suites (4 are for Disabled Guests!).  This is the room we’ll be staying in over the National Day weekend.  These suites come with sweet balconies, a bedroom and a living room with a tv in each room and a spacious bathroom.  There’s also wireless internet in each room and 24-hour in-room dining (when there are enough guests…).  The daily rate for the suite is 85 OMR +8% service charge +8% for breakfast package.  The suite is supposed to be for a maximum of 2 adults and 2 kids but if you are real nice to the Front Desk Manager, he’ll let you squeeze in another person (including breakfast) at the same cost. Make sure to ask for an extra bed which they’ll bring in at no extra charge.

This is one of the 25 standard rooms, known as Sifawy Rooms.  Make sure to ask for a pool-side room if one is available because they rock!  The room came with a welcome fruit basket, kettle with complimentary coffee/tea, a nicely stocked minibar, an in-room safe, plenty of drawers and hangers, his & her bathrobes and slippers.  There is also an extremely informative book titled “Regards Oman” in each room (no, it’s not complimentary! :-) ) with lovely pics and info on major tourist destinations in Oman.  This room cost us 75 OMR (inclusive of breakfast) +17% service charge for a grand total of 86.39 OMR.  (When booking online at their website, be warned that you are not actually paying with your credit card online; but simply reserving the room.)

pillow menu?!  :-)

                         The pool is available 24-hours but poolside towels are only available from 7am to 6pm.

The licensed bar, The Breeze, is now open at Sifawy Hotel.  It is conveniently located right next to the pool!

If you want to book a room over the National Day holiday, you better hurry, as there are only 55 rooms at the Hotel.  If you fill our their questionnaire upon leaving, you become eligible for a free stay of 4 nights which will be announced around Christmas.  That would be sweet!

Some of the freindly staff at Sifawy.  The gentleman on the right is the Front Office Manager, Hafidh Al-Hadrami.  He was extremely helpful in answering all our questions and booking us for this coming weekend.  If you are interested in finding out more about Sifawy or wish to book a room, you can reach him at hafidh.alhadrami@sifawyhotel.com.  Tel: +968-2474-9111/+968-2469-3383.  We really loved our stay at this hotel! What an experience! :-)

  1. It looks very nice !

  2. What did you think of the Female Parade on the National Day?

  3. Exactly where is this place, Andy? My son and daughter is coming to visit us and we’re looking for a place to celebrate this long week holiday.

  4. Thanks for the blog Andy, I’m planning a trip to Oman and it’s great. What is the surrounding resort like here? Is there much yo do/see/places to eat? Or is it still a building site? Many thanks.

    • Amber,
      Glad you enjoy the blog! The surrounding resort is really nice to walk around. The villas/apartments around the hotel are pretty much finished so it is a beautiful . I was planning on putting up a separate post for that all I took so many pics! There is also a lovely beach and beach restaurant about a 10-minute drive away. There’s also a great snorkeling/swimming site about a 20-minute drive away (also going to post about that when I can!). There’s enough to do there, but nothing beats kicking it back and just enjoying the pool and time with the family, eating like kings and queens, haha!

  5. Andy,
