Sur Plaza Hotel
Why we like it
- Ideal stop over en route to the Turtle Sanctuary at Ras-al-Jinz
- Comfortable property offering superlative service
- Enjoy the live music at Captain's Bar
- Take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool or enjoy a rigorous workout at the state of the art Gym
- We recommend relaxing in the Sheesha Lounge to soak up the atmosphere whilst partaking in this traditional Arabian past time
Look closer at the dome in the lobby and you will find this coloured glass masterpiece to be a depiction of the scenic splendours of Sur: mountain regions, boats, date palms and fortresses.
We particularly appreciated the friendly staff, who got the professional/casual balance just right; the magnificent breakfast spread; the wafts of frankincense; the sunsets; the sheer relaxation provided by the spa; the library; the open fire; the gym that made room for breakfast and, not least, the alcohol licence!

Al Najoom means "Stars by the Pool Side", an ideal location to relax in the traditional Arabic seating and enjoy your favourite drink in true Omani hospitality overlooking majestic views of Sur.
