A family break before Easter 2014: five of us in the party and we had 3 rooms at the Al Waha hotel - one of three in the Barr Al Jissah resort. Given the time of year there were lots of children, but the size of the Shangri-La resort means you can still find somewhere quieter if that is what... More

We stayed in Shangri-La Hotels all over Asia and are generally very impressed with what we get. The Barr Al Jissah Resort was no exception. We stayed in connecting rooms at the Al Waha Building, one of the 3 different Hotels in the resort. What we liked most were the different kids pools, the amount of shaded sun beds, the... More

This was our second time visiting this hotel and we noticed big differences since last time. Overall the experience was better. The service and care was much better than last time. The resort is magnificent and a guaranteed bliss and chill. we would go back again and again. However 4 points to improve are: 1. there is a massive mosquito... More

Having previously stayed in one of the other hotels in the resort on a family holiday and loved the location, we decided to treat ourselves to an adults only escape at the Al Husn. The hotel and rooms are beautifully appointed and it has it's own private beach and pool. It is expensive but you get a great deal for... More

Yes, it can rain in Oman! And it can be heavy! Within minutes, parts of the gardens were flooded and in some areas of the hotel water leaked from the ceiling, but alltogether, the employees were controlling the situation very quickly and the next day, it was just an "exciting" experience to remember! But the cushions on the beach chairs... More

This was our second visit to the Al Husn Hotel at the Shangri-La Resort in Muscat. The first time we were lucky enough to be upgraded to this hotel (the most luxurious of the three hotels on the resort) but this time we didn't want to take the risk and - having experienced the Al Husn on the previous visit...

Dear Nicola R, Thank you for returning to Al Husn and posting your review on TripAdvisor. Many guests have mentioned once they arrive at Al Husn they hardly leave in fact we have some guests staying over three weeks that never leave so to leave twice is not that bad! However there is some amazing places to see in Muscat... More

Stayed for 5 nights in March. We had a standard room which was more than adequate. Good size, superb bed, excellent bathroom. Was spotlessly clean and we enjoyed the daily drop off of bottled water, fresh apples. The pools and beach are well kept, plenty of sunbeds with great pool staff sorting the towels. Also enjoyed the ice boxes supplied... More

The rooms are big and clean. The infinity pool is gorgeous and offers a breathtaking view on the sea. Nice crowd and guests. The aperitif offered every evening is pleasant and brings life on the nice terrace. The staff is extremely nice and polite. The food is fantastic! Just missed the porc bacon at breakfast. The way from the pool... More

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the lovely Shangri La, Al Husn Hotel; it was a beautiful and extremely well run hotel. We have been fortunate enough to stay in many luxury hotels but I don’t think any have been more lovely than Al Husn; every detail, from corridors and walkways to the grand reception area have been...

Spent two nights at this amazing property. Great friendly service, plenty of restaurants to choose from and a wide range of activities for all ages. We went for a snorkelling trip and swam with sea turtles, ate fresh seafood and fantastic lebanese food. Breakfast is served in the all day dining venue, with plenty of choice and pleasant outdoor seating.... More

Dear Gianpiero A, Thank you for sharing your feedback with the readers of TripAdvisor, it is always nice to read when guests say they saw turtles when snorkeling which is quiet common at this time of year as we are well into the turtle nesting season.
