luxe - Al Husn Hotel, Oman
Written by Karen Osman
Part of the integrated three-hotel, five-star luxury village of Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa in Oman, Al Husn Hotel is set between the dramatic backdrop of the rugged Hajar mountains and the shimmering water of Al Jissah Bay.
Attention to detail is reflected in every aspect of the guest experience. Inviting, traditional Arabian hospitality is experienced throughout, from the distinguished butler service to complimentary pre-dinner cocktails and canapés, which can be served in the privacy of your room.
Inspired by royal Arabian palaces, Al Husn’s majestic décor and style are enhanced by commissioned local Omani artwork that lends a cultural insight into the region. The Art Gallery, located in the resort, also showcases a number of local artists with exhibitions held throughout the year.
As the most exclusive part of the resort, Al Husn – meaning ‘castle’ – impresses guests with its privacy and retreat-style ambience. With a separate beach area, guests can enjoy the luxury of peace and quiet, interrupted only – if they so wish – by a visit to Al Muheet, the hotel’s private, yet stylish, pool bar.
One of the highlights of Al Husn Hotel is CHI, the resort’s spa. Treatments aim to impress, from signature facials, massages, and hammam treatments to the latest in spa advancements such as the unique ‘water oasis’, vitality hydro pool, herbal steam room, tundra and tropical showers, and an ice fountain.
