About Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa
Nestled in between the dramatic backdrop of rugged mountains and the pristine waters of the Sea of Oman, Shangri-Laâs Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa is set on 124 acres of stunning scenery and home to three spectacular hotels: Al Waha, âThe Oasisâ, is the perfect family destination, Al Bandar, âThe Townâ, is at the heart of the resort and is ideal for leisure and business travellers, and Al Husn, âThe
Castleâ, is the most exclusive retreat providing the highest level of luxurious and elegant hospitality for the most discerning traveller. All three hotels have spacious guestrooms and suites featuring
stunning views of the Sea of Oman and its dramatic coastline, and are designed to reflect the enchanting Arabian spirit of traditional Oman. The most exclusive Al Husn has 180 elegantly appointed guestrooms and suite.
The resort is only 15 minutes to Muttrah Souk, the old city of Muscat, the Ruwi business district, and within easy access to many local shopping and cultural attractions. Muscat International Airport is just 45 minutes away.
How to get there
It is 7-hour 30-minute direct international flight to Muscat International Airport. The Airport is just 45 minutes away from the resort.
When to go
The best time to visit Oman is between November and mid-March, when daytime temperatures average 25Â°C, and you can avoid the often overwhelming heat haze that is present in Oman the rest of the year (particularly between May and August).
Travelling with children
Whilst there are no children's facilities in Al Husn, children can enjoy facilities such as the Lazy River, children's pool, play room and water aquatic play area in Al Bandar and Al Waha hotels. Children below 16 are not permitted to use the private beach or Al Husn pool.
