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.

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

Amazing !

Give, Denmark

I travel close to 100 days each year and sees hotels all over the globe. This hotel is amazing and It’s hard to know where to start with the list of praises. It’s perfect and the idea of having an ‘adult only’ hotel here at Al Husn is fantastic... it gives a quieter atmosphere that is very relaxing. Staff is out-of-this world with a perfect balance of service without being ‘fake’. The private beach rocks, world class restaurants and rooms that just signals class all the way. The General Manager Milan has made this hotel a gem that I will recommend everyone to stay at 👍🏼

A wonderful holiday

North East England, United Kingdom

I stayed here in April 2018 with my husband and two children (aged 6 and 8). The hotel is really lovely, nice and clean throughout with a great many things to do to keep children entertained. The pool is lovely and there is an activities team to keep children entertained. They do a fantastic job, running soccer sessions, pool basketball/volleyball, etc. There was a kids easter hunt while we were there but it was so long and so hot, I'd suggest a rethink for future years. While it was nice to put a free bar on with this, I personally spent the whole time running around with my children, only to discover everything had finished once we got back! Although the sea and beach are nice, the sand was just too hot to enjoy sadly. One slight negative is that we struggled to get sunbeds during the day. Thankfully we're not a family of sunbathers and don't hog sunbeds but we do like to have 1 bed as a base for our things and somewhere the children can return back to when we are outside. They have a small kids club located just next to the pool, which was suitable for children under 7. There is an amazing space for children, located about a 10 minute walk away (or 2 minute shuttle which the hotel provides free on request). There is a soft play area with hell slides and you can choose to leave your children there. Also on this complex is a games room, in which everything is free to use. My boys loved playing here too, although the only age appropriate playstation game was racing and the boys aren't really into that, so more choice would be better. Rooms are lovely, bathrooms are huge and the service is outstanding. We had a lovely room overlooking the lazy river (which is huge and well worth a try) and the beach, which offers camel rides for a small charge (again a must in my opinion). As there are three hotels, this is a huge resort and it therefore offers many restaurant options. We tried all of them in the two hotels we could access (one is adults only) and they all served lovely fresh food. So much to do and yet so relaxing that we didn't venture off the resort. A hotel I would definitely recommend for families.
