Full accommodation information

Situated between the majesty of the mountains and the waters of the Gulf of Oman, the Shangri-La's Al Husn Resort & Spa is an oasis for each and every guest.

The jewel in the crown of this three-hotel complex is undoubtedly Al Husn, which boasts exclusive facilities, including a private, adult-only beach.

With its name meaning 'The Castle', Al Husn offers guests an extraordinarily high-level service, and its rooms are amongst some of the largest in Oman. Appointed with exquisite taste that references the classic decadence of Arabian palaces, all accommodation boasts a balcony or patio, and a fully stocked, complimentary mini-bar. 

Dining options will delight guests at Al Husn. For a unique experience, choose Sultanah, a restaurant that is built to resemble a luxury cruise liner, with floor to ceiling windows providing spectacular sea views. Each evening, the liner's 'port of call' changes, meaning you can experience a different national cuisine each evening without ever trying another of the resort's many restaurants! 

There are many additional touches that add to the super-luxe experience at Al Husn. Daily afternoon tea is served for guests only in the stylish Lobby Lounge, where pre-dinner cocktails are also offered as night falls. Then, of course, there is the exclusive beach, with its smooth sands, private beach bar and a strict over-16s only policy. All this combines to create an exclusive sanctuary.

180 rooms and suites, including the spectacular 500 square metre Royal Suite.

The resort's sustainability initiatives are showcased through Shangri-La's Care For People Project, which strives to uplift underprivileged communities. By promoting education and health care support, the resort aims to create a positive impact in the lives of those less fortunate.

Furthermore, Shangri-La's Care For Nature Project underscores their dedication to preserving the environment. Biodiversity conservation and restoration efforts are at the forefront of their mission, ensuring the natural beauty of Oman remains untouched for generations to come.

The resort's culinary program is also built around their pledge to source produce locally and ethically. Their menus proudly feature sustainable items, reducing the carbon footprint associated with food sourcing. Not only does this approach elevate the dining experience for guests, but it also supports the local economy.

Finally, Shangri-La's Al Husn Resort & Spa goes beyond environmental and community efforts; their support of Make-A-Wish International also brings a ray of hope all over the world to children and their families during challenging times.

  • The resorts’ Turtle Care Project aims to protect and raise awareness of the endangered native turtles. A dedicated turtle ranger will keep you updated with news of any nesting activity and emerging hatchlings during the season
  • For a special evening, dine at Shahrazad, the only authentic Moroccan restaurant in Muscat
  • The suites at Al Husn are ultra-luxurious boasting uninterrupted sea views from a spacious balcony as well as the bathroom. A butler service and indulgent VIP extras make your stay memorable
