The two neighbouring sister properties, Al Waha and Al Bandar, offer dining choices in 15 additional restaurants whilst CHI, The Spa is a must for a spot of pampering, alternatively from January 2018 a brand new boutique spa and fitness centre will also be available at  the Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa.

About the location
Muscat is an ivory-white port city that rambles between the sandy Gulf of Oman and Al Hajar Mountains.

Understated luxury is the theme here. Strict building laws safeguard Arab architecture, so even modern buildings come with filigree window shutters, carved balconies and mosaicked doorways. Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is the star, though – its towering dome and quintet of minarets strike out above the city skyline.

Meanwhile, Old Muscat – the city’s historic heart – slides east of the city centre, guarded by a pair of waterside forts. At the opposite end of town, high-end hotels boast spots beside bronzed beaches, while sprawling villas and family-friendly cafés decorate nearby expat neighbourhoods.

Muscat is also a dab hand at delivering the unexpected. For starters, you won’t see vineyards (despite the name, Muscat grapes – and the wine – likely don’t originate here). But you will see surprises like the Italian-Arabic Royal Opera House Muscat, which comes with a cluster of French bistros and steakhouses.
Transfer time
45 minutes from Muscat airport.
