Al Husn at Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa

Discover Al Husn at Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa

The flagship hotel of the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Al Husn (meaning castle) offers the ultimate in service and excellence. Situated on a headland, surrounded by the pristine waters of the Gulf, it fuses Omani and Moorish architectural design with colourful interiors inspired by royal Arabian palaces and Oman's rich heritage. Lavish, spacious rooms, exquisite facilities and butler service ensure this is a tranquil haven for couples.

While guests have access to the full range of facilities and leisure activities at its two adjacent sister hotels, Al Waha and Al Bandar, Al Husn sets itself apart with a heightened sense of exclusivity. Its two restaurants offer international flavours as well as Moroccan, Lebanese and Omani cuisine, while the blissful infinity pool and 100-metre private beach do not permit children under 16 years. Spend hours whiling away the hours with your complimentary cool box with water and juice, or head to the fabulous Luban spa for an invigorating selection of treatments.

"The sublime infinity pool is never crowded, but if you can, tear yourself away and head to the hotel's picturesque private sandy cove with its rock arch, to enjoy a spot of snorkelling or kayaking."
