Shangri-La

The latest "it" spot for travelers on the planet? The Sultanate of Oman-- where fjords, peaks, and beautiful beaches lure folks to the Arabian Peninsula. But this is not just a paradise for adventure travelers. Oman has seen a slew of luxury hotel openings, like the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa in the capital of Muscat. We've been keeping our eye on this beautiful oasis since it opened in 2006. Designed as a three-hotel resort village, Shangri-La's property boasts a dramatic desert setting next to the  sparkling bay of Al Jissah.

Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort, Oman

You'll find a scuba diving center, marina, a wide range of dining outlets, three expansive pools, a luxurious spa, and private beaches with butler service. Special Offers: When you stay three consecutive nights, you'll get a fourth night on the house. Book with Five Star Alliance, and you'll receive a complimentary upgrade to the next room category upon check-in, subject to availability.
