Short Break At Shangri La Bar Al Jissah Muscat, Oman

I wanted to celebrate my birthday differently this year so I decided to treat myself with a short break to Oman specifically at The Shangri La Bar Al Jissah Resort in Muscat.

حبيت احتفل بيوم ميلادي السنه غير فقررت أهدي روحي سفرة قصيرة لسلطنة عمان وبالتحديد منتجع الشنغريلا بر الجسة في مسقط

 The resort is located approximately an hour away from Muscat International Airport and consist of 3 Hotels, Al Waha Hotel Which’s more Families and Kids Friendly, Al Bandar Hotel a more business luxury hotel which I stayed in and third is Al Husn, the most luxurious of the three and perfect for honeymooners and couples. All three hotels are connected and you can use all the resort facilities and restaurants except for Al Husn Hotel as its most facilities are only for its guests to maintain their privacy.

منتجع الشنغريلا بر الجسة يبعد تقريباً ساعة بالتاكسي عن مطار مسقط الدولي ويتكون من ثلاث فنادق . فندق الواحة والمخصص للعوائل والأطفال وفندق البندر اكثر لرجال الاعمال والعوائل الي بدون أطفال والثالث فندق الحصن المناسب للمتزوجين لان أكثرهم خصوصيه ورفاهيه. انا سكنت في فندق البندر. طبعا كل الفنادق مرتبطين ببعض وممكن تزور كل المرافق والمطاعم تبع اي فندق ماعدا مرافق فندق الحصن فقط للمقيمين فيه.

I opted for Al Bandar Deluxe Room, the room was well-appointed with lovely view.

حجزت غرفة ديلوكس، الغرفة كانت وسيعة ومرتبه وإلاطلالة حلوة.

After returning from Muttrah Souq, I was surprised with a cake! which was super cute!IMG_1044.JPG

 On my third day, I went for a Dolphin watching boat trip which’s one of the a variety of activities and water sports that the resort offers. The trip was extremely fun. I highly recommended it.
