Oman's first dedicated family resort, Shangri-La Al Waha (meaning ‘oasis’) is the largest of the three individual resorts that make up the Shangri-La Al Jissah Resort & Spa complex. With a range of interconnecting rooms available, Shangri-La Al Waha is a great option for families, while its sister resorts – Shangri La Al Bandar and Shangri La Al Husn – are known for their stunning water views and romantic atmosphere respectively.
Located on Barr Al Jissah bay with its pristine beach, incandescent waters and mountain scenery, Shangri-La Al Waha is truly a sight to see. The on-site spa, Chi, provides everything you need to relax and recharge, and boasts the largest spa villas in Muscat to offer total peace and privacy. Also featured are an ice fountain, herbal steam room, tundra & tropical showers and vitality hydro pool. Therapy of the retail variety is found via complimentary shuttle to Muttrah Souk.
For the more adventurous guest, ask in-resort about a range of exciting nature excursions. These include scuba diving, snorkelling and whale & dolphin watching. There are also plenty of child- and family-based amenities such as Kids Zone, Adventure Zone, lazy river, dedicated kid’s pool and the ‘splash pad’ to name a few. Other activities such as the Turtle Care Project offer a unique initiative for kids to help release turtles back into the sea with the onsite turtle ranger. And it gets even better: Want to tick jetpacking off your bucket list? This resort can help with that. Waterpooled Powered By Uniboats has introduced high end equipment for guests to enjoy, whether it's sport jet packs, clear-bottom kayaks, dingy sailing and more.
Or simply enjoy any of the numerous pools or the kilometre-long stretch of private beach. All your needs are taken care of at Shangri-La Al Waha. Same day laundry, for example, is another thoughtful service that allows you to concentrate on finding time for yourself. Guests staying in a suite can expect the following Additional Complimentary Suite Benefits: Daily laundry (excluding dry cleaning); Nespresso machine, Bose soundlink Bluetooth speaker III; fruit basket & flowers replenished daily; mini-bar restocked daily (beer, soft drinks, juices & confectionary).
