About the Al Bandar at Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa

There is no question but that the opening (January 2006) of this imaginative and inspirational new hotel concept on Oman's beautiful Indian Ocean coastline represents one of the most exciting all-in-one international resort developments in the entire Gulf region.  Reflecting something of every aspect of Oman's colourful tradition, history, environment and culture, Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa embodies three different hotels within one spectacular location.

Here on an idyllic private bay, clustered between jagged mountains and the turquoise seas of the Gulf of Oman, you can choose from three lavishly appointed hotels - each unique in its appeal and orientation, spectacular in design and beguiling in mood.  Between them, amid 124 acres of landscaped gardens, extends the Piazza - a meeting-place for shopping events and dining.  The resort has a style and setting for all tastes and temperaments.  Relaxation and tranquillity by infinity-edge pools or at a world-class Spa; perfect water sports in crystal-clear seas from 500m of private beach.  Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa offers memorable cuisine at a choice of 19 sumptuous dining venues.  Exciting desert safaris, The Heritage Village complete with souk and shops, and sightseeing and shopping in Muscat, just 15 minutes' shuttle-ride away.

Situated at the heart of the resort, the 5-star Al Bandar Hotel captures all the vibrancy of Oman's rich history and cultural heritage, with touches of opulence that provide ubiquitous reminders of your exotic surroundings.  The Piazza is an ideal rendezvous point and home to shops and superb restaurants that encompass all-day dining with Middle Eastern cuisine, Italian fare, a Tapas & Ice Cream Bar, Nightclub, Cocktail Lounge, Lobby Lounge, a Pool Bar and Long Bar.
