Family 


Compromised of a small collection of luxurious resorts, the Barr Al Jissah Waha and its nearby sister property Al Bandar are two of the most family-friendly destinations in Oman. Each have their own pool and more famously a 500 metre lazy river that links the two hotels which is popular with both adults and kids.

Treated like VIPs, children are well catered for through a comprehensive kids’ club and dedicated adventure zone, which often includes a turtle nesting programme throughout the summer months.

Al Waha is more suitable for younger children, particularly those with infants and toddlers as there are a wide variety of baby facilities and amenities available upon request.

For parents to get the most out of their time at these resorts, make use of the two swimming pools, four floodlit tennis courts, on-site sailing school, and scuba diving lesson.

If in the mood for pure relaxation, take use of the 24H babysitting services, and line up a few treatments at the CHI, The Spa, a rejuventating oasis that will leave you feeling replenished and prepared to enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Advice 


  • The resorts’ Turtle Care Project aims to protect and raise awareness of the endangered native turtles. A dedicated turtle ranger will keep you updated with news of any nesting activity and emerging hatchlings during the season
  • For a special evening, dine at Shahrazad, the only authentic Moroccan restaurant in Muscat
