A beautiful retreat at Millennium Resort Mussanah

We were in Oman last month for the Independence Day holidays, and spent two days at the Millennium Executive Apartments Muscat. The following two days, we traveled to the neighbouring town of Mussanah, by the sea. This time we stayed at the extensive Millennium Resort Mussanah.

The drive from Muscat took an hour, and was quite comfortable. The resort was busy because of the holiday weekend, but our check-in was done fairly soon.

Our room had a king-size bed with a view of the resort's beautiful Marina in the Gulf of Oman. It was quite refreshing to have the sea breeze coming in through the balcony.

The room was comfortable, and we didn't opt for an extra bed. The balcony had enough space for a table and chairs for us to enjoy the view. A good feature of the balcony in our room was that there was a wooden full-length window we could close to keep it safe for Little Dude. This is a useful amenity for families traveling with young kids.

We went for a walk downstairs and realized what a huge property this is! Apart from over 200 hotels rooms, they also have a separate building for 74 serviced apartments. There is a small beach right up front, and you can walk on the pier along the Marina, watching the shoals of fish that were so fascinating to see.

Further along is the larger beach, but most people preferred to spend time in the swimming pools, as did we. There are two large pools for adults, a little one for kids, and a private pool for women in keeping with Islamic culture.

The kids pool was not as well maintained as the adult ones, so we just took Little Dude to the bigger ones.

The resort also has many activities to keep kids entertained. There was a bouncy castle, slide, and trampolines in the main lawn. And the Kids Club in the serviced apartments block was quite large, with games and toys. Young kids cannot be left behind, but they do have supervisory staff.

After a long day of exploring, we went down for the Asian Theme Night dinner spread across Mydan and Al Bahar restaurants. The food was a mix of Asian cuisine including sushi and stir fry, and also dishes from international cuisine. There was live cooking station as well.

We spent a wonderful two days relaxing by the sea. The resort offers yacht rides on hire, but the operators were quite busy at the time so we didn't give it a go.

Walking along the resort, there were many more surprises. For one, the Zayna Spa is quite large, complete with a sun deck, where you could spend a good part of the day. They also have an 18-hole mini golf course for a leisurely putt (at extra cost).

The Millennium Resort Mussanah arranges for transfers and taxis if you're in Oman. It's a nice place to get away with the family.

For more information, rates, and reservations visit their website or follow them on Facebook.

We were invited to visit the resort, but all views and opinions remain my own.
