Lonely Planet review

Shangri-La’s Barr Al-Jissah Resort & Spa comprises three kasbah-style hotels around a magnificent shared beach and landscaped garden. Al-Bandar Hotel is the more business-oriented of the three hotels. The sophisticated six-star Al-Husn Hotel is perched on the headland, and Al-Waha Hotel , the easygoing, family accommodation, is accessed via a tunnel through the cliff.

Meandering between the hotels, a lazy river offers a fun way of getting from one watering hole to another. The richly carpeted foyers, marble corridors and designer bedrooms and bathrooms in all three hotels make choosing one over the other a matter of whim. The resort includes some of the country’s top restaurants: the Bait al-Bahr (seafood), Samba (international buffet) and Al-Tanoor (Middle Eastern fare).

There is a complimentary bus service from Muscat International Airport, or it is a 15-minute drive by car from Mutrah.
