Hilton Salalah Hotel

Resort in Western Salalah Plain

This hotel lies within view of Raysut Port, but despite cargo boats queuing up on the horizon, it represents a retreat from the city and camels occasionally charge along the hotel's beach. Rooms and amenities are tired and dwarfed by the yet-to-open neighbouring resort, but it's a sociable spot (and a hit with Nordic holidaymakers) offering family-centred activities.

There's a playground, table-tennis and planned children's activities.
