WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

Location: Overlooking the stunning turquoise water of the Sea of Oman, this incredible resort, which features three distinct luxury hotels, sits on 124 acres of rugged mountains and gorgeous beaches. And just 15 minutes from the bustling capital of Muscat, this resort combines the best of all worlds.

History: Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa opened in late 2005 and features Oman’s first family dedicated hotel, Al Waha.

Service: Throughout three hotels and multiple restaurants, the service at Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa is nothing less than impeccable, in keeping with the high standards of the acclaimed Shangri-La brand.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Just 15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Muscat, Oman, the spectacular Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa sprawls over a rugged peninsula, reaching out into the crystal blue water of the Sea of Oman. Featuring a long, sandy beach and surrounded by mountains, this resort matches its spectacular natural environment with its exquisite design and architecture, calling back to times of Arabian Palaces and local markets. Guests may choose between three distinct hotels located across the property: Al Waha, “the Oasis,” a family-friendly hotel turned seaside paradise; Al Bandar, “the Town,” which serves as the shopping-and-eating hub of the resort, and the palatial Al Husn, "the Castle,” the most luxurious of them all. With world-class restaurants and seaside cafes and bars, a wide variety of water activities including sea kayaking and scuba diving, and –of course –CHI, The Spa, guests at Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa will lose themselves in fun, in adventure, in luxury, and in style.
