Over Golden Tulip Hotel Nizwa
Het Golden Tulip ligt even buiten Nizwa City, op ongeveer een uur rijden van Muscat. In de omgeving liggen oude forten, kleine bergdorpjes en kleurrijke marktjes, waardoor deze omgeving een echt Arabische sfeer heeft. Proef de traditionele gastvrijheid bij de verschillende restaurants en bars. Als u zich bij het zwembad ontspant met een lekker koel drankje, ziet u de Hajar-bergen achter het hoofdgebouw opdoemen. Ook vanuit uw luie stoel kunt u van de omgeving genieten. Zo kunt u de interessante excursies combineren met een relaxt vakantiegevoel. Heeft u een dag over in uw planning, dan is dit zeker een leuke plek om een extra nacht te verblijven, zodat u op eigen gelegenheid door de buurt kunt wandelen.

Na Muscat is Nizwa de belangrijkste toeristische bestemming van Oman. De stad ligt op circa 2,5 uur rijden van Muscat. Van oudsher is Nizwa een belangrijk centrum voor de traditionele zilversmeedkunst. Het is de oude hoofdstad van de Julanda-dynastie. Het fort van Nizwa is een van de oudste en indrukwekkendste van het land. De beroemde dierenmarkt in Nizwa, die meestal vrijdagochtend plaatsvindt, mag ook zeker niet in uw programma ontbreken! In de omgeving van Nizwa liggen de plaatsen Bahla en Jabrin met een prachtig versierd kasteel uit de 17e-eeuw. U leest het al, cultuurliefhebbers zullen in deze omgeving zeker aan hun trekken komen.
"Big and busy with great pool area."
Yes it is 20 mins out of Nizwa, but all the better for it as it is like an oasis. Its sheer size means that it is ideal for big groups and it is clear that this is where the focus is. At night the pool side area is dominated by the layout for groups, which tends to take away the charm of an otherwise excellent ambience. The menu has enough options and and we were only able to try a few but felt that a little more inspiration in the kitchen is one area that could be improved. We just felt that the BBQ took precedence. The bar area, however, was a big disappointment. Dark and dreary and, not surprisingly, almost completely ignored by guests and seemingly only used by local Omanis. Nevertheless, its benefits outweigh the few niggles we had, especially if you want to be somewhere else besides Muscat. Tip - if you want a break with a great pool and plenty of space inside and outside, then this for you.
"Great hotel surrounded by imposing mountains"
We enjoyed this hotel. It was clean comfortable and we had room to unpack. It was smaller than others we stayed in on our recent holiday in Oman. However it had a nice welcoming atmosphere Our room had a quiet outside area where we could relax looking over a peaceful courtyard. We enjoyed the barb-e-q meals served under the stars around the pool area. Staff could have assisted us find our rooms on check in as on arrival the layout was confusing. We were a group o f 18 so in fairness it would have been tricky. Staff were helpful and friendly. The pool and pool area was immaculate , They were experiencing difficulty with algae in the pool but only around some steps - it didn't stop me enjoying a cool off at the end of the day.
"Very good hotel - no internet access in certain rooms"
Very good service and good facilities. I enjoyed the stay and the friendly staff. In the evening there is only buffet in the restaurant, but it looked really good. We had something smaller to eat in the Shisha bar which was totally ok. The only minus is that there was no internet access in the room. I overheard a guide saying that it only works in certain rooms, so you could ask for an internet room that at check-in I suppose. Hopefully they will fix that soon, the price is too high for a room without internet access.
"Great oasis in the hills near the old capital"
Clean room, comfy bed, hot showers. Meals probably 2-3 prices outside hotels in Muscat and no alternative cafes/restaurants near hotel to try, but still less than Radisson Blu in Muscat. Beautiful, reasonably-priced buffet on Christmas Eve, including roast turkey with stuffing and cranberry sauce. Nice long pool, with diving board with a small sign in English and Arabic saying "No Diving" !
"Quality hotel but with service issues"
The Golden Tulip is an impressive building with a stunning swimming pool area. Housekeeping and Gardening are excellent but management lacking in Reception and F&B. Information available at Reception is not reliable and much could be done to improve the visitor experience. We had four nights here over Christmas. Breakfast was pretty basic buffet and repetitive. Arabic food offerings not authentic - all very poor. Our waiter Tej, from Nepal, was delightful but apart from him, we found little warmth or genuine welcome in the Front of House & F&B departments. Perhaps some competition would raise the standards of what could be a wonderful hotel? Rooms are super-large and spotless, if not perhaps 21st century. Tea and Coffee facilities in separate mini bar area. Beds could be more comfortable and choice of pillow fillings would be an upgrade, but we enjoyed the space and seating area a lot. There is a private outside porch for seating. Thank you for our special Anniversary cake awaiting our arrival on 22nd.
