Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Muscat

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.
