Omani Theme Night

[The First of Its Kind in Oman]
The Omani Heritage Village at Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa provides a glimpse of a traditional Omani rural lifestyle, showcasing an insight of how Omanis lived several decades ago in their villages and small towns. The concept of the Omani Heritage Village was developed in partnership with the Bait al Zubair Museum Foundation and the Omani Craft Authority. The Heritage Village is a major attraction from Shangri-La, and visitors will enjoy being taken on a real journey of heritage, history and culture.

[The Fine Arts at the Omani Heritage Village ]
The Omani Heritage Village is home to 10 local boutiques, offering visitors a great chance to buy traditional Omani artifacts and souvenirs. Omani khanjars (daggers), handmade baskets, pashminas, silverware and silver jewellery are some of the fine artifacts that can be purchased from the boutiques, and all are handmade by local Omani artisans. The boutiques offer a unique experience that allows visitors to watch the artisans craft their wares. In addition, female visitors can experience the art of henna.
