Accommodation: Shangri-La Barr al Jissah - Al Waha
With a beautiful setting on a private bay, overlooking the Sea of Oman, the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah resort encompasses three hotels, Al Bandar, Al Waha and Al Husn. Offering the best of Omani hospitality and ultimate Arabian luxury, the resort has an excellent range of dining and leisure facilities.
The stunning location is the Shangri-La's most striking attraction, set in a private bay, the white sands and clear turquoise waters framed by the deep red of the rocky and mountainous interior.
Al Waha, meaning 'The Oasis', is the largest of the three hotels resort and is the ideal choice for families. Reflecting traditional southern Omani architecture, the hotel is built around the pool and garden area to reflect a palm-filled oasis.
Each of the three hotels has its own character, and guests are free to wander between the resorts using the facilities at all three (with the exception of some of the facilities at Al Husn).
A long sweep of beach and beautifully landscaped gardens link the three hotels, ensuring a feeling of space and openness.
Shangri-La is renowned for high levels of service, and staff at the resort are friendly and efficient.
