For exceptional service, luxury and Omani hospitality

Al Husn — meaning "The Castle" in Arabic — is Shangri-La's adults only property in Oman. It benefits guests with exclusive service like a private pool and beach not accessible to other guests of the resort, and contemporary Omani-inspired rooms are the perfect sanctuaries for living out a royal Arabian experience. You'll have complimentary items in your in-room minibar and daily complimentary afternoon tea, pre-dinner cocktails and a canapé service is also included. The resort has its own dive centre where you can gain qualifications and there is also a beach frequented by turtles — with the help of conservationists. Experience world-class cuisine in around 20 bars and lounges throughout the resort and taste some of the best that Oman has to offer. 

  • Exclusive service and luxury for Al Husn guests
  • Access to the whole Shangri-La resort; its restaurants and activities
  • Private beach and pool areas
  • Complimentary minibar, afternoon tea and pre-dinner cocktails

"If it is only adults travelling I would recommend the Al Husn over the adjacent Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resorts as the adults only feature gives you extra privacy with the added beneift of enjoying the facilites across all resorts."

Exceeded our expectations

Andover, United Kingdom

Our experience of Shangri La hotels hasn't always been positive but this hotel reversed that view. The accommodation in a 1 bedroom suite was very good with separate lounge and a large bedroom and separate dressing area with masses of space. The hotel is 1 of 3 in the complex and doesn't take very young children which made it very relaxing. The pool is large and there is a nice beach if you prefer to be by the sea and of course you can use the facilities of the other hotels in the complex. We found the pool staff were very pleasant and very responsive. There are 2 restaurants for evening dining which are only open to resident of the hotel but we also ate in some of the other restaurants e.g. the fish and Italian restaurants which were both good. Although there is complimentary afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks the service was very hit and miss for both. We gave the pre-dinner drinks a miss after our first experience with them. Breakfast is very good with a lot of choice including cooked food if you wanted it. We really enjoyed our week here and have booked to go back next winter for sun and relaxation in a lovely environment.

Beautiful large rooms; nice beach and pool; breathtaking views.

New York, USA

We loved this hotel. The room was large and very cozy with a nice sized bathroom overlooking the pool. The pool was gorgeous and the beaches pleasant. The hotel has it's own beach but the beach at the adjacent hotel is also nice. The staff were all delightful. There are 3 hotels. We ate one evening in the Middle Eastern restaurant which was expensive and average. We preferred to eat at the other two hotels.Once we ate outdoors at the Italian restaurant at the hotel next door which was very pleasant. If you want to eat outdoors it is better to reserve in advance. A few days a week they offer complimentary afternoon tea on the terrace with breathtaking views of the other two hotels. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and we were happy that we were able to experience it.
