Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa is an exclusive, adult-only retreat which majestically sits on a tranquil clifftop in Muscat. Built in the style of an ancient, Arabian fort, this desert oasis allows you to experience true Omani luxury, culture and hospitality. Cool down in an infinity pool, savour daily afternoon tea and sunset cocktails, and unwind in the secluded, private beach cove overlooking serene mountainous scenery and spectacular views across the Gulf of Oman. There’s also a luxurious Hareer Spa by L’Occitane, so you can indulge in a range of rejuvenating treatments.

The resort is set among 124 acres of idyllic landscaped gardens and offers 100 metres of private beachfront. It’s surrounded by the Gulf of Oman in the Bay of Barr Al Jissah. The hotel is less than ten miles away from Old Muscat, the original capital city of Oman, and is 22 miles away from the modern city centre of Muscat. You can reach the Muttrah Souk, the popular market which boasts traditional stalls, in just over 11 miles. Guests can also enjoy the facilities of the neighbouring sister resort, Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, which is within walking distance. The hotel is less than 29 miles from Muscat International Airport.

All rooms and suites epitomise Arabian opulence with their earthy colour schemes and rich textures. You’ll find tasteful patterned rugs, paintings by local artists, lantern wall lights and wooden lattice panelling. All accommodation includes a balcony or terrace with views of the pool, mountains or sea. They are equipped with a Nespresso machine (and capsules), a complimentary minibar, a BOSE speaker system, daily fresh flower arrangements and a daily fresh fruit display. Bathrooms are marble-clad and offer a separate bath, a large walk-in, rainfall shower and L'Occitane toiletries. Upgrade to a One Bedroom Suite to benefit from uninterrupted views of the Gulf of Oman and to luxuriate in a bathroom, whose glass panels provide sea views. You’ll also receive butler service on request and be served with traditional Chinese tea upon arrival.

Other facilities

Spend peaceful days on the exclusive, private beachfront where you’ll be greeted by golden, sandy expanses and calming waters. There are plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas, and the beach and poolside service offer fresh towels, refreshing drinks and cooling facial mist sprays. If you get peckish, make use of your in-room complimentary minibar, enjoy daily afternoon tea (also complimentary) and savour a free, daily cocktail before dinner. You can also unwind by the beautiful clifftop infinity pool, enhanced with tropical palm trees and alluring sea vistas.

For an unrivalled relaxation experience, visit the on-site Hareer Spa by L'Occitane, which offers a tempting menu of signature treatments and therapies, all of which use the finest products by L’Occitane – including lavender and almond from Provence and shea butter from Burkina Faso. Your wellbeing journey will begin with lavender iced tea upon arrival, and you can sip traditional green tea after your treatment. The Omani Honey Heaven signature treatment is highly recommended – it involves an invigorating body scrub with local Omani honey and sea salt, followed by a soothing massage with signature oils from France.

Active guests can head to the 24-hour gym or try the dive center – Extra Divers – which promotes a range of dive experiences and PADI approved courses (for a supplement). You can also enjoy the range of facilities offered at the sister property, Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, which includes the Omani Heritage Village, the impressive CHI spa, the lazy river and alternative dining options.
