“New Year Hot Deal” at Shangri-La’s Barr al Jissah Resort and Spa until Feb. 10th

New Year Hot Deal

Here’s a great deal we took advantage of while my sister-in-law was in Oman for a visit this month. 85 OR for a room (we booked 2) at Al Waha Hotel at the Shangri-La which includes all taxes, wifi and buffet breakfast.  The Shangri-La continues to be one of our favorite all time hotels here in the Sultanate. Here are a few pics from our latest stay:our room

Al Husn (“The Castle”): Oman’s Only 6-Star Resort Hotel

Al Husn is an impressive adults-only hotel in Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa.  Many people are unaware that there is even a 6-star hotel in the Sultanate.  Shangri-La itself is listed as a 5-star hotel but actually consists of 3 hotels: Al Bandar, Al Waha and Al Husn.  Al Husn is the only 6-star hotel of the 3 and currently the only 6-star hotel in the entire Sultanate.

This pic is from the Shangri-La website.

This pic (from www.clubairtravel.co.uk) is of Al Husn’s sweet private beach!

All of Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa’s 3 hotels are in Entertainer Oman 2012 with “a complimentary night when a night of equal or greater value is purchased coupons”.  Have any of you reading this stayed at Al Husn?  If so, how was your experience?
