Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, Al Husn

The most exclusive of the three hotels in this resort, Al Husn, “the castle”, does not disappoint when it comes to luxury and exclusivity. 

Designed for the more discerning traveller, the hotel is built around a large and imposing, authentically-styled and manicured courtyard. All 179 deluxe rooms and suites have stunning ocean or pool views, extremely generous floor space and are decorated in the style of an Arabian Palace. Guests will enjoy the comfort and luxury of exquisitely designed marble bathrooms.

A number of facilities and services are reserved for the exclusive use of Al Husn guests, including a private beach area with the Mahhara Beach Bar, private butler service in all suites and personal iPods on request. Sultanah, a striking cruise liner-themed restaurant, and Shahrazad, an extravagant Moroccan-inspired dining experience, are situated at Al Husn and offer the finest food in the resort. Elegant and stylish, these dining options, in-keeping with the rest of this hotel’s facilities, are best suited to an adult clientele.
