About Al Waha

Al Waha is Oman's first dedicated family hotel. It is the largest of the three hotels at Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa, Sultanate of Oman. Comprising 262 guestrooms, each room provides guests with either a 5 sqm balcony or patio, with seaview or sea-facing perspectives.

The name Al Waha means "The Oasis", and has been designed such that the hotel's several swimming pools form an oasis incorporating many date palm trees.

The architecture of Al Waha is traditional Dhofari, from the southern region of Oman. Nestled at the foot of a mountain range, vehicular access has been made possible by a man-made tunnel.
