Whether your plans include adventure, rejuvenation or pure relaxation, Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa offers an enticing array of activities for both adults and young people.
The resort’s signature spa, CHI, The Spa, is the largest and most luxuriously appointed spa in the Sultanate of Oman. Each treatment takes place in one of twelve private spa villas, allowing you to indulge your senses in spacious and private surroundings. Voyage Privé members receive 20% discount in the spa.
The main beach is a one-kilometre expanse of warm golden sand washed by the cool turquoise waters of the Gulf of Oman. Down a short path you'll find Turtle Beach, a smaller, secluded beach at the edge of the mountains. The main beach offers bathrooms, showers, beach loungers, umbrellas, towels, and bar service with light snacks. The beaches and facilities are for the private use of guests.
The resort’s fully-equipped Fitness Centre offers stunning views over the beach and out to sea, and includes a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. It is open from 6am to 10pm daily. Sportswear is available from several shops within the resort.
The resort has three expansive, cooled swimming pools, open from 6am to 8pm each day: Al Waha, Al Bandar, and a private pool for guests of the Al Husn Hotel. The adjacent pool bars offer light snacks, cocktails and refreshing drinks. Complimentary chilled mineral water is available at each pool, along with fresh towels. The pools at Al Waha and Al Bandar are connected by the Lazy River, which guests use as a relaxing way of “commuting” around the resort.
Oman lies in a unique region in which many coastal areas are still relatively untouched and unexplored, and new discoveries both on the land and in the sea are waiting to be made. You may choose from a variety of nature activities and excursions, including dolphin and whale watching, scuba diving and snorkelling, and turtle nesting/hatching trips. All excursions are planned and conducted with sensitivity to the unique ecosystem.
