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

The Lazy River running between Al Waha and Al Bandar invites guests to hop on an inflatable, follow its gentle flow and settle into an ultimately less frenetic pace of life.
Ideal for families, the hotel has a fantastic Cool Zone Kids Club that will keep young souls entertained. The meaning of Al Waha is “oasis” and the hotel’s several pools certainly give it a luscious and alluring ambience.

The property is built in traditional Dhofari style and has 262 rooms in total, varying in size and style. Most have great sea views and all benefit from outdoor space. 40 interconnected family rooms feature a king size bed in one room and twin beds in the next, while special amenities and PlayStations are a treat for the children. Samba restaurant offers vibrant and flavourful international cuisine and children will love the Surf Café.
