The Al Waha Hotel is a relaxing oasis set on Oman's coast. Families flock to this outpost of Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa for a variety of activities and blissful relaxation.

Property Details

The Al Waha Hotel is Oman’s first family hotel and the largest of three at the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa. Al Waha means “the oasis” and this property is exactly that.

No matter your room choice, you will enjoy a balcony or furnished patio facing either the sea or the pretty gardens. The overall aesthetic is centered around traditional motifs from Dhofari, in the southern region of Oman.

Several swimming pools are surrounded by date palm trees; rugged mountains hover beyond and create a marvelous backdrop. Delight in afternoon tea in the Al Waha lobby lounge, a decadent space with a number of arches seemingly pulled from a sultan’s palace.

There are several restaurants to choose from, offering Mediterranean, Persian, Indian, and Turkish favorites. Al Tanoor serves classic Arabian Gulf dishes in a traditional atmosphere. Tents hang over your table and pottery adds visual interest in the space. Each tantalizing dish is prepared in open cooking stations. No matter your preference, you are sure to leave the table totally sated.

Put your life on a quiet pause in the spa, a luxurious and private hideaway where you can feel recharged in the hydro pool, steam room, and tropical showers.

The beachfront Al Waha Hotel is situated on Oman’s beautiful coastline, making this an ideal destination for guests eager to experience underwater activities. Unspoiled reefs reveal a colorful world of moray eels, rays, and schools of fish. Set out by boat to spot spinner dolphins leaping out of the surf.

Al Waha runs a Turtle Care Project aimed at protecting endangered hawksbill and green turtles—both are native to Oman’s beaches. Meet with a turtle ranger to learn about these marine creatures. With plenty of other activities for children on offer, Al Waha is ideal for families seeking a relaxing seaside retreat in Oman.
