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

Oman's first dedicated family resort, and the most family-friendly (as well as the largest) of the three hotels that make up the Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort, Al Waha is an oasis of fun for all ages.

​Set in its own residential area, Al Waha welcomes families with open arms, and even though it’s less expensive than the two other hotels here, service is still top-notch.

The generously-sized, contemporary-style rooms and suites will give you and your loved ones all the space you need, along with a sea-facing balcony or terrace; and a host of family-focused leisure and restaurant facilities.

​Kids and adults alike adore tubing along the lazy river that connects to the pool at Al Bandar, and Al Waha has a host of special activities and menus for youngsters to enjoy.

In fact there's so much for them to do at the Cool Zone Kids’ Club with its hugely popular collection of games, crafts and adventures, you may even manage to make a break for freedom and find the time to pamper yourselves at CHI, The Spa, or for a little romantic respite.

    We stayed at both hotels and they certainly exceeded our expectations. I personally preferred Al Waha, mainly due to the better food options and the view from the hotel which is pretty amazing!
