Information pertaining to our club members in light of the COVID-19 pandemic - Special conditions apply at the Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa
The soft-pink facade and central courtyard of the Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa is the first hint that this is no ordinary beachside resort. The design, inspired by the Moorish architecture of traditional Omani forts, is opulent to say the least, with gold-tiled fountains, colorful carpets and polished marble wherever you look. Then of course, you can’t miss the framed khanjars in the lobby, or the arches that frame views of the ocean on one side and the palm trees of the central courtyard on the other. Yes, there are beachside hideaways in Muscat, but this adults-only property has an exclusive feel and unique exoticism to it, and the private beach cove where pool boys stand ready to hand you a fluffy towel or arrange your sun lounger does not hurt. For more Middle East cool, there is the hotel’s Hareer Spa by l'Occitane, where French therapies are given a local twist, and its infinity pool that looks like it’s cascading straight into the ocean beyond. While you’re here, a visit to the hotel’s sister property, the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, comes with our highest recommendation for its restaurants and bars, and its Eco Centre doing superb work towards protecting endangered turtles species native to the beaches of Oman. This is Muscat seen from a different perspective, and there is nothing quite like it...
