Found in the middle of the luxurious Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa, Al Bandar is an elegant hotel sitting on 124 acres of white sand and surrounded by towering date palm trees. With its name meaning ‘The Town’, this fantastic hotel is the focal point of the resort, and home to a wide range of delicious eateries, a sparkling pool, and the spectacular Barr Al Jissah ballroom.
We love the hotel’s grand architecture. Inspired by old Muscat, each building is of an impressive structure, with authentic ornate balconies and jagged roofs. The beautiful buildings are also close to the resort’s excellent facilities, including the vibrant Arabic marketplace Al Masaak Souk, and the Omani Heritage Village, whilst its lovely 198 rooms face the glistening water of the Gulf of Oman.
Children will love the family-friendly facilities close by to the hotel. From wall climbing in the Adventure Zone and Henna Painting in the Cool Zone, to floating in an inflatable rubber ring along the Lazy River, there’ll be plenty to keep younger guests occupied. Meanwhile, meander along to the adult-only CHI, The Spa for a full range of revitalising treatments and amenities.
WiFi is available throughout the resort, and with plenty of international restaurants, complimentary non-motorised water sports and beautiful ocean views, Al Bandar will be the perfect place to relax and have fun.
