Shangri La, Muscat, Oman

Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa, a luxurious three-hotel resort village and signature spa in the Sultanate’s capital of Muscat, nestles alongside the sparkling bay of Al Jissah in a dramatic desert setting of rugged mountains and inviting beaches.

A hidden retreat set amid 124 acres of ocean and desert scenery just fifteen minutes from the Sultanate’s capital of Muscat, the luxurious Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa expresses the welcoming heritage of Oman.

The resort comprises three hotels: Al Waha (The Oasis), an ideal family vacation getaway, Al Bandar (The Town), in the heart of the resort, and Al Husn (The Castle), an exclusive six-star indulgence.

Al Waha, Oman's first dedicated leisure hotel, is the largest of three hotels at Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa, Muscat.

The name Al Waha means "The Oasis", and has been designed in such a way that the hotel's several swimming pools form an oasis incorporating many date palm trees.

Comprising 262 guestrooms with a minimum room size of 37 square metres, each room provides guests with either a balcony or patio, all of which are sea-facing.

The name Al Bandar means "The Town" and the architecture of the hotel is inspired by old Muscat, featuring buildings of varying heights and a variety of ornate balconies.

Al Bandar is the resort’s focal point, featuring eight food and beverage outlets and 11 meeting rooms, as well as the spectacular Barr Al Jissah Ballroom measuring 1,056 square metres and providing banquet-style seating for up to 700 people.

The five-star deluxe property provides 198 sea-facing guestrooms, each offering a minimum of 45 square metres of space and including a balcony or terrace.

The Al Husn Hotel, an exclusive six-star indulgence, offers our highest level of Shangri-La service, amenities and privileges to the most discerning of travellers.

All of our expansive, richly appointed rooms and suites have direct views of the the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Oman, with some offering a panorama of the resort and the surrounding coastline.

Guests of the Al Husn Hotel enjoy exclusive dining, bar and beach areas and available butler service (applicable to Suite guests only).

Access to the private, secluded Mahhara Beach and Beach Bar is reserved for guests of Al Husn.

The 180 rooms and suites at Al Husn are among the largest and most luxurious in Oman, with an inviting décor inspired by royal Arabian palaces, accented by authentic Omani artworks. Suites offer flatsceen televisions, complimentary Internet access and DVD entertainment systems.

Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa offers a wide choice of dining at each of our three hotels. At the Al Waha, enjoy the culinary theatre and Latin flavours of Samba, or pick up a child-friendly meal at the Surf Café.

Al Bandar is home to Capri Court, featuring contemporary Italian cuisine, as well as Tapas & Sablah, an outdoor dining experience complete with live entertainment. Al Tanoor features an evocative Arabian atmosphere that creates an engaging dining experience at each of our many open culinary stations.

Two culinary high points of Oman may be found at the Al Husn: Sultanah, a stylish restaurant with a luxury cruise theme, and Shahrazad, the only authentic Moroccan restaurant in Muscat, which serves traditional Moroccan cuisine in a contemporary and refined setting.

CHI, the Spa at Shangri-La, is the most extensive and well-appointed private spa in Oman, with twelve treatment villas that create a sanctuary of personal rejuvenation and relaxation.
