The Shangri-La Al Husn, which aptly translates as 'the Castle', boasts 180 of the most luxurious and spacious rooms in the Sultanate of Oman. The hotel sits in a gorgeous location, nestled between a dramatic mountain range and the Gulf of Oman’s turquoise waters in an exlusive private beach cove. This is considered one of the most exclusive hotels in the region for guests over twelve years old and the standard of service is fittingly high. The architecture and furnishings are authentically Arabian and take design cues from Oman's grand royal palaces, meanwhile guests are also invited to dive into a range of complimentary extras, including free daily afternoon tea, free pre-dinner drinks and canapés, and free daily minibar refills.

Excellent leisure facilities ensure travellers are suitably relaxed and rejuvenated. Shangri-La’s luxurious, signature spa, CHI, the largest in the area, invites guests to enjoy a diverse range of treatments in the privacy of their own spa villa. Meanwhile, extras such as a same-day laundry and free shuttles to Muttrah Souk and shopping areas underline the hospitality on offer here. For those wishing to explore the heritage of this culture-rich area, nearby is the Omani Heritage Village. Discover a souq showcasing local artisans and special events, and stables where guests can see camels and Arabian horses. This Shangri-La Oman hotel is an adult-orientated hotel, and families with children under the age of 16 are advised to try next-door hotels Al Bandar and Al Waha.
From snorkelling, diving and dolphin spotting to tennis and gym work-outs, you'll be spoilt for choice for activities. The Turtle Care Project even offers a unique opportunity for you and your family to help release turtles back into the sea. Previously taking its place as the third property in the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa integrated resort complex (alongside Al Waha and Al Bandar), Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa has now been relaunched as a stand-alone resort. The new-look Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa features an enhanced guest experience, including superb dining (seafood beach grill and bespoke, private ‘Dine by Design’ options), upgrades to the spa & wellness facilities, and remodelled beachfront daybeds, privacy lounges and cabanas.
