Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Clinging to the edge of the Gulf of Oman – a midnight blue strait connecting the Arabian Sea with the Strait of Hormuz – and fringed by the imposing Hajar mountains. It is 33km or a 45-minute drive from the capital, Muscat, where you can visit the exquisite Grand Mosque gifted to the Sultan Qaboos to mark his 30th-year reign.  

Rooms at Shangri-La Al Husn

Adorned with Omani art work, Al Husn’s 180 rooms are masterpieces themselves. Inspired by Arabic palaces, they feature a colour palette of rich colours like maroon, ochre and gold with a balcony overlooking the sea – there is even a sliding wooden panel in the bathroom so you can indulge in a deliciously warm bath while enjoying the view.

Food & Drink

Feast on authentic Omani cuisine as well as Moroccan and Lebanese dishes. Eat anytime at one of the many cafes and bars or dine at the resort’s dynamic restaurant, Sultanah, where you can enjoy live music in a sophisticated setting.
