Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa – Al Bandar, Muscat, Oman

Sharing many facilities with the other two hotels at Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah, there is somehow a more relaxed feel here at Al Bandar, a resort inspired by the architecture of Old Muscat.

​Located on a secluded bay between the rugged Hajar Mountains and the sparkling Gulf of Oman, and the focal point of the Barr Al Jissah complex, this luxurious resort-within-a-resort has everything on its doorstep but that doesn't mean you compromise on style in any way, shape or form.

In fact you'll find Al Bandar has a slightly more sophisticated vibe than the family haven of Al Waha, yet doesn't quite feel as ‘boutiquey’ and exclusive as the adult's-only Al Husn.

​It's here at Al Bandar where most of the magic happens (more of the restaurants and leisure facilities are based here, as is the vibrant Omani Heritage Village, the Al Mazaar Souk, the Adventure Zone family entertainment venue and CHI, The Spa).

So, if you want the perfect mix of everything, including four pools, a Piano Bar with live music (great for a nightcap) as well as a nightclub, Al Bandar has it in droves... and then some.
