We had a 15 hour layover and an 8 hour layover to and from the Maldives and reserved this hotel both ways. It was the most brilliant idea for our trip. I highly recommend it. Reserve well in advance as there are rarely rooms available the day of arrival. It’s expensive for how long you’re staying there but worth every penny. I have no idea what we would do for 15 hours and during this time pre-world cup, they have stopped all visas to leave the hotel to explore. The hotel is in the airport and super convenient. We learned that there is a newer second Oryx hotel as well called the Oryx garden which seemed closer to our gates but not by much. We slept amazingly in between our flights. They have a pool and spa, etc but we didn’t make use of those. Coming from SoCal, we were exhausted.
