Situated in the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula, the Sultanate of Oman is bordered by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the west, Yemen to the southwest and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to the northwest.

The head of state is His Majesty Sultan Sayyed Qaboos bin Said. His birthday, 18 November, is celebrated as the country's National Day.

Oman's coastline, which is 1,700 kilometres long, extends to the Gulf of Oman, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean. Muscat, the capital of Oman, is host to beautiful beaches and a fascinating culture and heritage that dates back thousands of years.

The resort is located about fifteen minutes from Muscat on the bay Barr Al Jissah.

The Sultanate of Oman offers a myriad of activities and incredible options for entertainment and sights to see.

Suited to fit any budget, lifestyle and personality, Muscat shopping is abundant in traditional art, electronics, handicrafts, accessories, silver ware, clothing, rugs and just about anything else you expect to find.

Traditional souks are open markets that can be found in several locations across the city, of which one of the most popular markets is called Muttrah.

Perhaps one of the more exotic purchases you can make is the world’s rarest perfume called Amouage. This perfume was created 25 years ago under the direction of His Highness Sayyid Hamad bin Hamoud al bu Said, as a reflections of the country’s traditions and to bestow special honour on his guests with a gift of a bottle. The perfume is available for both men and women and is made by some ingredients that are unique to this country alone, which are frankincense and rock rose.

Shopping in Muscat extends itself to malls as well, take a stroll through City Center Mall and Bhaja Shopping Mall, which both offer the conveniences of any ideal shopping mall with international and local brands, entertainment and dinning options.

Omani Heritage Village

Celebrating the unique past of the Sultanate of Oman, the Omani Heritage Village is alike to walking back in time to when the only places that sold wares and fresh produce were in traditional market places called souks. Nestled in the premises of Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa, this heritage village is a popular tourist attraction. The village is a reincarnation of a bygone era that establishes the same mystical and authentic atmosphere of a souk.

Here, at the Omani Heritage Village you will get a first hand experience of some the Sultanate of Oman’s traditional arts and crafts. A demonstration of life in early Oman, this village also produces wares that can be bought. Watch the artisans at work over handcrafted silver ware, pottery and weaving. Traditional henna painting on the body can also be done here, in exquisite designs and motifs that have been passed on from centuries before. Hand woven rugs and carpets are also on sale here. Find the most enticing trinkets and souvenirs that will make ideal gifts to take back home.

Almost all the crafts you see here are still very much alive and in use through out the Sultanate. In addition to the traditional craftsmanship you see here, you can also enjoy some regular cultural events under the starlit Arabian skies. The cultural shows are typical Arabian style entertainment with traditional rhythmic music and dancers. Experience the wonders of an ancient Sultanate of Oman when you visit the Omani Heritage Village on your next trip to this part of the world. Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa is one of the most luxurious hotels in Muscat Oman that provides discerning guests a variety of options for dining and accommodation.

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

This beautiful example of Islamic architecture provides a wonderful insight into the cultural heritage of Oman. It is also the only mosque that allows entry for non-Muslims. Apart from being a place of worship, this huge mosque is a centre for scholars and houses an Islamic reference library containing over 20,000 sources of information on Islamic sciences and culture.

The mosque is lavishly decorated and features a 263m prayer carpet, 35 crystal chandeliers (the central one is 14 meters high and 8 meters wide) and a floor entirely paved with marble. The tour takes you into the men's and women's prayer halls, where you are allowed to take photographs.

There are strict rules governing entry of non-Muslims into the mosque. You must take your shoes off before entering and both men and women should wear conservative clothing (women should wear long sleeves and long trousers and cover their hair).

Children under 10 years are not permitted inside the mosque.

Bait Al Zubair Museum.

Bait Al Zubair, a showcase for traditional Omani crafts and culture, is located within the winding streets of Oman's enchanting capital city of Muscat. Anyone interested in discovering the Sultanate of Oman and its rich culture will be well rewarded by a visit to this museum.

The museum houses one of Oman's finest and most comprehensive collections of artifacts from all over the Sultanate. Its displays include traditional Omani weaponry, jewelery, costume, domestic utensils and recreated urban and rural environments.

Bait Al Zubair is an integral part of the city's heritage as an important international port, thriving commercial centre and a meeting place of many different cultures and nationalities. Built in 1914 by Sheikh Al Zubair bin Ali, it was opened as a museum in 1998 by his son Mohammed Al Zubair to share aspects of Omani heritage through inherited and collected artifacts.

Omani Fortresses`

There are over 500 forts, towers and palaces built along the 1,700 kilometer coastal stretch of Oman. The main purpose of these buildings was to safeguard the city from invaders. Now a mere reflection of the military defense mechanism of an era gone by, these historical edifices serve as popular tourist attractions. Each fort varies in architectural style and layout.

Built in 1668 is the Nizwa Fort, which is the largest fort in the Arabian Gulf. This fort took 12 years to complete and was pivotal in defending the city against marauding enemies. There are several unique aspects about this fort, of which the windows are several inches thick and when closed during battle has a small hole from which boiling oil was poured on to invaders attempting to scale the walls. The Jabrin Fort was built in 1670 as a defensive strong hold and living accommodation for the then spiritual leader of Muscat who is referred at as an Imam. This fort is most elaborate with its carvings and paintings painstakingly spread right through the living spaces of the fort. Whilst the towers in the fort boast walls that are two meters thick.

To mention a few of the other significant Omani fortresses in Muscat; Fort Al Jalali and Al Mirani is another famous fortress, built in 16AD, these forts stand at the mouth of the Muscat Bay. Al Jalali was turned in to a museum during the reign of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said. The oldest and tallest fort in existence is the Rustaq Fort, built in the 13th century. Reaching much acclaim and repute the Bahla Fort Wall is also listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List for its seven mile long wall. This fort wall is wide enough to accommodate sentries who used to patrol its perimeter night and day.

Take time to appreciate these relics and architectural wonders of Omani fortresses in Muscat. Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa, Sultanate of Oman serves as an idyllic location for tourist wishing to explore this historical city.

A one day tour to Jabel Shams & Nizwa Fort & Market. . You can have an overnight stay in the desert in Wahiba Sands in Desert Camp. You cane also visit Nakhal, Rustaq, Al Awabi forts.

FABULOUS ACCOMMODATION IN A STUNNING SETTING!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 adults soaked in this stylish, sophisticated, yet relaxing home over Christmas and New Years, with the advantage of enjoying all of the festive season's celebrations at the Shangri-la. The atmosphere was perfect (and meticulous). Special touches throughout --- The owner went above and beyond, welcoming us in many thoughtful ways. Lovely maid Rose helped with our holiday dinner and was there to support our preferences during the entire stay. We especially appreciated all of the information regarding excursions and help making reservations for fishing, with fun and friendly boat captain.
We are expats in a nearby country, and our family travelled from Vancouver ( 30 hours!) .... Weariness vanished in this luxurious, spacious and comfortable villa, perched above the breathtaking sea. We often stay in this type of vacation property and here we have found the highest standard anywhere. As frequent visitors to beautiful Oman, we suggest that this residence offers the loveliest imaginable lodging, and provided us with a memorable, precious family holiday. We recommend it unhesitatingly.

A unique experience

  • 5 of 5
You are set for the most amazing holidays: breathtaking views, beautiful sunsets, a sparklingly modern and elegantly decorated house whose outside architecture respects the local aesthetics, untouched nature such as beautiful beaches and mountains, etc.
The house is equipped with every amenity one can need, and Rose who looks after it is a warm, welcoming person, she was v helpful during our stay!
As for the location, it is perfect as it is ~20 minutes from the heart of Mascate which enables you to visit the city whenever you feel like it, but you are also isolated enough to be immersed in nature... and obviously you are also just a few minutes walk from the beach.
I also highly recommend going on a day boat trip (you can rent a private boat with a guide, a friendly and cheerful Omani) to go fishing, dolphin and turtles watching and swimming in the emerald sea... :)

One of the finest villas you could rent anywhere

  • 5 of 5
We organised this stay some months ago, and Madame Isabelle was very helpful from the start, with information about the villa, the Shangri La Resort, Muscat and Oman.

Although we were there at the height of an unusually hot summer, we were simply blown away by the place. The view is staggeringly beautiful, the villa is huge and the quality of the fixtures and fittings of the highest order. In addition Madame Isabelle arranged for us to have access to Shangri La Resort, which has superb facilities too, from spotless private beaches, a lazy river, multiple pools, great sun-loungers to excellent food.

Muscat is about 15-20 minutes along a spectacular drive through the mountains.

Ultimately, you will be hiring a home, not just a house, and you are unlikely to find one better on this site or anywhere else. It really is, as the title says, unique.
