The history of Barr Al Jissah goes back centuries with archaeological finds providing evidence of an ancient and sophisticated trading community. Located in a secluded bay, seemingly cut off from the outside world by a wall of mountains, one can only imagine the centuries of history and trade that have played out in this stunning destination.

Situated at the gateway to the Arabian Gulf, Oman is one of the oldest civilisations on the Arabian Peninsula dating back to 10,000 BC; blessed with miles of pristine beaches, feathery palms, striking mountains and true hospitality. Oman is in stark contrast to the rest of the Middle East. The capital Muscat attracts discerning travellers with its unique blend of traditional values, rich culture and contemporary luxury. A perfect example of this is the 1000-seat Royal Opera House that recently opened in Muscat, which plays host to internationally-renowned performances of opera, ballet and musical concerts.

Barr Al Jissah combines the romance of Arabia with the considered elegance and tranquillity of the Mediterranean, to create a unique lifestyle destination in the region.
