Selected for its luxury offering and nestled at the foot of the hill, is the warm and welcoming five-star Shangri-La Resort. With its inviting atmosphere and providing the ultimate in relaxation, this Barr Al Jissah feature sits in a secluded cove with powder soft sand.

Three distinct hotels rest at the foothills of the majestic Al Hajar Mountains, each uniquely inspired by Oman’s rich heritage.

Al Husn ‘The Castle’ is the final word in luxury and haven of solitude. Al Bandar, ‘The Town’, creates a vibrant heart to the picturesque bay and Al Waha, ‘The Oasis’ is where generations both young and old come together to laugh, smile and play.

Famed as the culinary jewel in Muscat’s crown, Barr Al Jissah owners can access membership to the refined Shangri-La Hotel.

Bait Al Bahr, just one of the 11 fine dining restaurants within the three hotels, is one of the finest seafood establishments in the Gulf. Straight from the Gulf of Oman, chefs cook the catch-of-the-day to perfection on the beachfront setting.

The Shangri-La membership provides full access to its exclusive beach, pools, children’s activity centre, first class gym and fitness centre as well as its all-weather tennis courts.

Inspired by legend, The Chi Spa at Shangri-La provides personal peace and well-being in an exquisite setting.

Highly trained therapists can soothe away stress and revitalize mind, body and spirit through a carefully selected range that include massages, selected exercises, stretching, hydrotherapy and meditation.
