Perched on a cliff overlooking the Gulf of Oman against the dramatic backdrop of rugged mountains, Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa sets the standard for luxury in Muscat. In May 2018, Shangri-La Al Husn relaunched as a private standalone resort. The palatial Al Husn – which means castle in Arabic – features 180 rooms and suites and was previously marketed as part of the adjacent Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, an integrated destination resort comprised of the family and leisure-focused Al Waha and Al Bandar hotels.
