Standing majestically on a cliff-top overlooking the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Oman, Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa is a sophisticated private hideaway in Muscat. To maintain a tranquil atmosphere, Al Husn only encourages guests over the age of 16.
As you arrive at the palatial Al Husn, which means “castle” in Arabic, traditionally dressed doormen stand within the heavy carved wooden doors to offer a royal welcome befitting a real Arabian palace. Within seconds, the journey from home to the hotel becomes a distant memory as you embrace the atmosphere drenched in tranquility – your stay at Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa has only just begun.
You will be forgiven for thinking you have reached the home of an Omani royal. Dripping with regal opulence, the resort’s inviting design fuses Moorish and Omani architectural elements with the Sultanate of Oman’s rich heritage as reflected by strong cultural references throughout the décor.
As you explore further, the central courtyard is inspired by the Alhambra of Granada, and is vacant, with the exception of water features and palm trees. It is the perfect spot to enjoy complimentary cocktails each evening at sunset, that magical time of day when the sun is dropping below the horizon.
