A shrouded retreat set in the midst of 124 acres of the land of sea and desert landscape only short way from the Sultanate's capital of Muscat, the rich Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa communicates the inviting legacy of Oman.
I was slightly hesitant about booking here. However, I had the most wonderful stay and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. I spent lots of time hanging out by the pool and enjoying the amazing drinks and snacks that they offer. Every person I encountered was incredibly open, friendly and engaging - I genuinely felt like I was the most welcomed guest in the country!
It is a different feel to Dubai and the like. The hotel itself is beautiful. Rooms were huge, spacious, immaculate and luxurious; staff were just sublime - attentive, friendly and charming while entirely professional and experienced; the pool is stunning; the beach is beautiful, and the food and room service were spot on. If you are looking for a middle-eastern adventure, this is the perfect place to go! I read about it online many times before, however experiencing it in person was completely surreal.
