Overview


Firmly established as one of the top resorts in the region, Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa is located on a secluded bay, 45 minutes drive from the airport and 20 minutes to Muscat Town. It is actually three hotels under one resort umbrella, each of which has its own style and personality.

Al Bandar is more luxurious in style and comfort than Al Waha. Located at the heart of the resort, each of the 197 rooms is sea facing, albeit across the swimming pool, with some directly facing the sea (supplement applies). Rooms are slightly larger than at Al Waha.

All guests can enjoy complimentary wi-fi in their room and throughout the Resort, complimentary bottled water in their room, by the pool and on the beach and a daily English or  Arabic newspaper.  Guests staying in Suites can also enjoy a daily fruit basket and flowers in room, complimentary return airport transfers by  luxury car, daily laundry service, mini-bar stocked daily and pre-dinner drinks and canapes served in room between 18.00 - 19.00 hrs daily.

With the exception of certain facilities at Al Husn, which are limited to exclusive use, all other amenities in the total Resort are available to all hotel guests. There's a superb selection of restaurants, with a good choice of cuisine, location and price. Each hotel has its own swimming pool, plus there is a lazy river option linking Al Waha and Al Bandar which has proved popular with adults and children alike. Other main facilities include CHI, the Spa and an attractive beachfront where a selection of watersports can be arranged.

Families are well catered for with a kid's and teens club, and from January to June children can get involved in the Turtle Nesting programme.

Adventure Zone, a new indoor play area for children, opened in May 2010. Housed within this facility are exciting drop slides, play equipment and themed party rooms.   Located in Al Mazaar Souk, adjacent to the Omani Heritage Village, it is open to both hotel guests and local residencts or visitors. You can register at Al Waha hotel Reception and be escorted by shuttle to the Zone.   It can accommodate up to 100 children offering fun, learing and inspiring activities.  Designed for children aged four to 17 years, budding fire-fighters can try their hand at sliding down a fireman's pole, aspiring gymnasts can practice their skills on the Over Under Hurdles, Tumble Tower and Swing Over Net.  There are also three exciting slides from Rainbow Slide with its wavy multi-lanes to Double Drop slide and Demon Drop Slide for a bigger kick!

Younger guests can join the Toddler Zone for under threes with a soft play area, ball pool, padded climbers etc.  Internet stations are available and there are daily Nintendo Wii Sports challenges.

Family  


Compromised of a small collection of luxurious resorts, the Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Al Waha and its adjacent 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 Bandar particularly works well for those going on holiday with older kids and teens.
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.
 

Our 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
