Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa is a secluded and luxurious three-hotel resort village and spa on dramatic Al Jissah Bay just 15 minutes drive from Muscat.

The Shangri-la Al Waha is one of the three hotels making up the Al Jissah Resort.

Shangri-la Al Waha (meaning “Oasis”) is ideal for a family holiday to Oman, as there are plenty of facilities on offer for families including several swimming pools.

Cool Zone Kid’s Club is an indoor-outdoor play area for younger children up to 8 years old.

The Adventure Zone is an exciting family entertainment venue with a variety of play areas featuring Over Under Hurdles, Swing Over Net, drop slides, climbing wall, PS3, computer with Wi-Fi access and soft play areas. The highlights are the three drop-slides providing fun and adventure for all, with the ultimate 6.5-metre Demon Drop slide.

Meander your way between Al Waha, Al Bandar and back again on inflatable tubes along the Lazy River, inspired by the centuries-old falaj system that brought fresh water to remote Omani villages.

Splashpad is an aquatic play area for all the family with a combination of water effects from light mists to touch sensitive sprays and projection jets. 

Located in Al Mazaar Souk, GameZ is a game room where the entire family can play billiards, snooker, air hockey, electronic darts and video games.

In addition to the Play Zones, activities are also on offer for kids, including Treasure Hunt, Henna Painting, and the Sand City Competition.

The ‘Oasis’ in the name is reflected in the design, with the swimming pool forming an oasis, surrounded by dozens of date palm trees.
