Exploring Oman

Explore the wonders of exotic Oman

The Sultanate of Oman is a rapidly developing nation where centuries-old ways of living are still the norm outside of the bustling capital.

The resort is just 20 minutes away from the centre of Muscat, which offers a wealth of sights and activities for the curious explorer.

Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa, Muscat’s team of specialists are dedicated to creating historical and cultural experiences with bespoke itineraries from pre-arrival and throughout your stay. Offerings include: 

Wadi Al Arbaeen Experience 

The Shangri-la Al Husn Resort & Spa Wadi experience will take you to Wadi Al Arbaeen, one of the amazing and scenic spots in the country, which also provides a great place to cool off with some adventure! For your Oman holiday it is a great place to relax and have fun! Our luxury 4x4s will take you through scenic countryside and rugged mountains to a small coastal fishing village called Quriyat, where you have a good chance to spot eagles around the calm waters. You will then start on an adventurous route, cutting through the mountains, to one of Oman’s spectacular Wadis, Wadi Al Arbaeen, which features deep pools of fresh water, plantations and rocky paths. Here you will get to explore, admire, swim and refresh before enjoying a wonderful BBQ lunch, freshly prepared right there in front of you.  

Robinson Crusoe Island Tour 

Make your holiday to Oman truly memorable with an escape to your own private island, offered exclusively to Shangri-la Al Husn Resort & Spa guests. Starting on the shores of our Shangri-la Al Husn Resort & Spa Cove, you will be whisked away to a private Robison Crusoe island on a luxury yacht, all the while enjoying the incredible marine life of Oman. Discover the escapades of wild turtles, dolphins and, potentially, whales. Just off the coast, this is a thrilling way to kick-start your day. You can enhance your knowledge of marine mammals and explore the fascinating details along the rugged, unexplored shoreline while enjoying the blue waters of the Arabian Gulf. Once you reach the shores of Bander Al Khairan island, which has a beautiful natural beach, you get to snorkel and enjoy the calm waters of Omani Bay, full of unique spots and fish, turtles and coral reef. Afterwards, relax under a traditional Omani luxury beach marquee with a fresh and bountiful BBQ lunch served on the beach.
