Accessed via a scenic mountain road, Al Waha is the first property to greet you when arriving at the award-winning Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa. Situated in an idyllic sandy cove, complete with private beach, Al Waha prides itself on being Oman's first dedicated family hotel.

The hotel's large swimming pool is flanked by date palms and boasts cool, inviting waters. There is also a separate swimming pool for the little ones, along with a 'lazy river', which offers a novel mode of transport; taking guests on the 500m journey from Al Waha to its sister hotel Al Bandar, with its many restaurants, cafes and shops. 

Room options are diverse - all offering a terrace or balcony - with family rooms being a particularly good choice. Consisting of two interconnecting bedrooms, they give parents their own private space whilst keeping the kids close at hand. Though with the dedicated Cool Zone Kids Club, Adventure Zone and even daily camel rides available, you may not see much of them! While they're off playing, why not indulge at the world class CHI, The Spa or go shopping at the resort's own Al Mazaar Souk?

Dining options at Al Waha include Samba, an international buffet, where dishes are prepared in open show kitchens and Surf Cafe, which offers a host of healthy options as well as burgers and sandwiches. Parents may wish to take advantage of the babysitting service on offer and dine out at one of the resort's top class à la carte restaurants; our Concierge service can arrange all this for you.
