Tiwi Sunrise Motel

Sitting on the pebble beach watching the sunrise with the mountains to the left is a great way to start the morning off at Tiwi Beach. Afterward, guests can walk across the street to enjoy breakfast at Tiwi Sunrise Motel.

When driving to the motel, it looks smaller, but after walking inside, visitors will be surprised to see an outdoor swimming pool, three dining areas, and 21 rooms, five of which face the sea. I immediately liked the coral-colored sofa and chairs and helped myself to some Omani coffee and dates in the lobby after checking in.

Location and Attractions

The motel is a wonderful location for those wanting to go to Mibam waterfall, Wadi Shab, or Sur. Tiwi Beach is across the street, which is a good spot to relax.

Rooms

My friend and I stayed in a room with a partial sea view. The beds were comfortable, and the soundproof room allowed us to hear no one else or other noises outside or next door. The room also had a fridge, kettle, and a small table with two chairs.

Food

There is a dinner and breakfast buffet. The dinner options during my stay included tuna, chicken, fries, vegetables, and rice. We ate at the restaurant inside near the pool, but guests can also enjoy eating at a table outside by the pool. It is peaceful at night with just a few sounds from nature.

Breakfast consisted of hard-boiled eggs, baked beans, pancakes, sausage, and bread. After a short hike at Tiwi, we ordered lunch from the hotel’s menu. We chose tuna, chicken, and rice with hummus and salad.

Service

The friendly and welcoming staff will ensure guests have an enjoyable stay. They will help in any way possible and happily greet guests upon arrival.

Rooms book fast, so make sure to reserve ahead. I live in Sur, but my stay felt like a holiday, and only having to drive twenty-five minutes was a bonus. It was also wonderful being a two-minute drive from the entrance of Wadi Tiwi.
