Hotel Overview

Hidden in the mountains

Venture across Oman’s mountains and you’ll find Al Waha at Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa. This secluded resort is just 30 minutes from the heart of Muscat, but feels like a secluded seaside escape. Spend some time wandering along the two private stretches of beach, away from the bustle of the city.

Family-friendly luxe

There’s something for every member of the family to do at Al Waha. Drop little ones off at the Cool Zone kids’ club, where they can take part in daily arts and crafts and educational sessions. Or let them play with new friends at Splashpad aquatic play area, in the heart of the resort. If you’re looking for something the whole clan can do together, why not take each other on at GameZ’s video games or battle for the crown at mini-golf?

Award-winning stay

Al Waha is part of Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort. Over the years, this luxurious spot has won plenty of accolades from some of the world’s most respected magazines, travel companies and awards bodies. Condé Nast have named it as one of the Middle East’s best resorts more than five times, and it’s won countless titles from travel review sites, often named as a travellers’ favourite.

The resort also gives back to the local community, and protects the environment too. Their Embrace project has donated countless materials to local Saffanah Yiti school, while its Sanctuary programme works to raise awareness of ways to keep local hawksbills and green turtles safe.

Rooms & Suites

Al Waha – or ‘The Oasis’ – is ideal for families, as everything moves at a more leisurely pace here. Date palm trees fringe the hotel’s many pools, offering some welcome shade during the heat of the day. Each building feels traditionally Omani, having been designed in Dhofari style. Meanwhile, inside, every room and suite feels upmarket and contemporary.
