Accessed via a scenic mountain road, this award-winning resort is situated in an idyllic sandy cove between the Hajar Mountains and the shimmering waters of the Gulf of Oman and combines the three luxury hotels of Al Waha, Al Bandar and Al Husn.

The three very different hotels offer endless choices for all, from the exclusive Al Husn (The Castle); a truly indulgent Arabic retreat with its dedicated host service and lavish suites, to Al Bandar, (The Town) located in the heart of the resort, with a more traditional Arab feel reminiscent of a township. For families with children under 12 years we recommend a stay at Al Waha (The Oasis), an ideal choice for those with children and friends travelling together.

A stay at the Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort offers guests a spectacular range of amenities, from fine dining experiences and entertainment options including tennis and scuba diving, to a variety of food outlets.

There are two indoor bars, poolside restaurants and access to the lazy river and children’s facilities at Al Waha. Guests of Al Husn can relax by the tranquil infinity pool, on the private beach or alternatively can experience the delights of CHI, The Spa, work up an appetite at the fully equipped gym or take to the water at the PADI Dive Centre.
