One of the most relaxing hotelsI have ever stayed at. Tranquil, quaint and beautiful just to look at. The the rooms are spacious, clean, and cozy. The bed is extremely comfortable and surprisingly so were the sofa and chair. The staff is extremely sweet and always wearing a smile when they help you with practically anything you need.

Total chaos, the food in all the restaurants was just not worth the money, definitely not 5 * quality. It would take about 30 minutes every time to get our car. Nobody in sight out in the pool when ever we needed something. and the check in and check out...oh my God! takes ages!

If you're a sucker for luxury hotels then Shangri La's Barr Al Jissah Resort is a must stay in Muscat! Breathtakingly beautiful property, exotic location! Their pool area is an absolute must to chill in provided you hit the pool by 4pm; specially their lazy pool. Some good restaurants inside too! Spacious Rooms, friendly staff.

After staying at the Al Qasr Hotel on the Madinat Jumeirah Dubai, we decide to look for a similar hotel maybe on a smaller scale. We did try and not make comparisons with the two hotels but it was hard not to. We arrived early morning to a pleasant greeting and looked forward to the usual cold towel drink and... More

Stayed here for a week over Easter. We were greeted warmly on arrival, shown to a beautiful big room, and in the morning woke up to a stunning view of the immaculately kept grounds, infinity pool and sea from our balcony.

It was a once in a lifetime experience. We went there to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We had the most beautiful experience of our life. The location of the resort is the USP.

There was never a need to worry about having a nice situation on the beach or a fresh towel. I loved the little treats that were brought to us while sun bathing and the cooler they gave us with cold drinks and snacks. They even came around to clean our sun glasses!
