Christmas at Shangri La, Barr Al Jissah Resort

This is one hotel in Oman with everything: Oasis, Town, Castle, yacht marina, dive centre, heritage village, Lazy River...

The Shangri La Barr Al Jissah hotel in Oman is a complete experience. It is set amongst 124 acres of lush gardens, backed by majestic mountains and fronted by over half a kilometre of impeccable beach and cobalt sea.

As well as a hotel in Oman, the Shangri La is also The Oasis (Al Waha) featuring traditional Oman-style architecture and 262 rooms with balconies, a pool reminiscent of an oasis and five restaurants and bars serving South American specialities, light meals and pool-side snacks.

Guests can float from Al Waha, along the Lazy River to The Town (Al Bandar). It’s styled after Old Muscat and offers 198 large rooms - with balconies – seven restaurants and bars, a nightclub and huge swimming pool with tiled sun beds allowing guests to lounge half-immersed in cooling water. 

The Castle (Al Husn) does, indeed, resemble an ancient Omani fort – but with a little more luxury! It stands high on a headland giving horizon-to-horizon views and features 180 bedrooms. Plus a private gym, an infinity-edge pool and – of prime importance to dedicated sun-worshippers – its own, exclusive private beach in the perfect location to watch the sun go down. The Castle also includes Moroccan and international restaurants, poolside bar and cigar lounge.

Choose an Oasis, Town or Castle. Choose the Shangri La Barr Al Jissah hotel in Oman.
