In 1908, J.G. Lorimer recorded Rakhyut in his Gazetteer of the Persian Gulf, noting its location as being about 2 miles east of Salalah on the coast, along which it extends quarter of a mile. He wrote:
Village of 150 houses of stone and mud; some however are uninhabited. About 25 families are low caste fishermen; the rest are Al Kathir Arabs of the Shanafirah section. There are a few coconut gardens. There are no manufactures.
