Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa review by Nicole Allmann
Bounded by 124-acres of sweeping desert, undulating rock formations and swaying palms, Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa nestled beside the sparkling bay of Al Jissah is the ultimate Arabian hideaway. Comprising three separate hotels – Al Waha, Al Bandar and Al Husn, this exclusive resort is a popular bolt-hole for celebrities during peak season, and offers some of the best scuba-diving opportunities anywhere on the continent.

Bounded by 124-acres of sweeping desert, undulating rock formations and swaying palms, Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa nestled beside the sparkling bay of Al Jissah is the ultimate Arabian hideaway. Comprising three separate hotels – Al Waha, Al Bandar and Al Husn, this exclusive resort is a popular bolt-hole for celebrities during peak season, and offers some of the best scuba-diving opportunities anywhere on the continent. Typically Oman in style, Barr Al Jissah replicates much of the areas outstanding natural beauty within the resort; tall palms and rugged chunks of rock dividing the outdoor pool areas and various cafes. The Shangri-La boasts numerous family-friendly amenities, including a lazy river and miniature water park, Adventure Zone, diving club, fitness centre and tennis courts.

Those seeking a little respite from parental duties might want to explore CHI, Shangri-La's award-winning health spa. Offering an exciting menu of Balinese, Ayurvedic and holistic treatments, the secluded beachfront spa affords complete privacy from the main resort. The first of Oman's family-oriented hotels, Al Waha is a veritable oasis, with three pools, hot tubs and 'swim streams' in the main courtyard. Nearly all rooms boast impressive views across the Gulf of Oman, and offer complimentary amenities such as satellite television, free Wi-Fi and designer toiletries. Al Bandar and Al Husn are geared toward those seeking a more pampering experience, reflected in the decadence of marble-clad en-suites and furnished balconies overlooking the sparkling Gulf.
