“Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa will appeal to those looking for a peaceful and luxurious retreat with all the facilities expected from a larger resort. All rooms are contemporary and feature Arabian décor with a balcony or terrace with sea view. Super family-friendly, the hotel has its own children’s pool and there’s also a kids’ club and teens’ club at Al Waha Hotel.”
Tucked between the Hajar Mountains and the Gulf of Oman, Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah is a luxurious three-hotel resort with sensational spa. Set in landscaped gardens with two private beaches, several pools and a meandering river, the resort includes an Omani heritage village, watersports pavilion, souq, and fine dining options.
The guestrooms and suites are divided between three hotels. Al Waha is a family-oriented hotel, while Al Bandar caters for a diverse range of leisure and business travellers. The exclusive, adults-only Al Husn has the most luxurious rooms available.
Guests can dine at any of the hotels or in the bustling souq. Dining options range from international à la carte, to Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Italian, Asian, Spanish, and seafood.
There’s an abundance of activities, from whale watching and visiting the turtle sanctuary, to sunset cruises, watersports, and yoga, but leave time for a trip to the spa.
