Blessed with spectacular mountain, desert and coastal scenery, Oman is a brilliant destination for romantic stays. Oman is all about luxury hotels, spa treatments and snorkeling along the coast, medieval forts, camping in the desert, and sailing the oceans. In this series of posts, we pick the finest hotels in Oman that deserve a visit on your honeymoon/ romantic getaway.
Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa
This 124-acre resort comprising three hotels— Al Waha (the oasis), Al Bandar (the town), and Al Husn (the castle)—is exquisitely located between the Gulf of Oman and the mountains, a 15-minute drive from Old Muscat. The most exclusive retreat is Al Husn – a den of 5 star indulgence that reflects Arabian enchantment and has a private beach.

The 180 rooms and suites at Al Husn hotel all have direct views of the turquoise sea. They are spacious and luxurious, with decor inspired by royal Arabian palaces, accented by authentic Omani artworks. Deluxe Rooms feature a furnished terrace or balcony overlooking the courtyard and pool area. If you enjoy waking up to a view of the sea, choose a Deluxe Seaview Room or even a spectacular One Bedroom Suite.
This perfect retreat for a romantic Arabian escape, with extensive facilities on your doorstep is fiercely private. Spend lazy days by the tranquil infinity pool or on the private beach with its commanding views – accessible only by guests staying at Al Husn.
Choose to enjoy Moroccan cuisine at Shahrazad or international dishes at Sultanah — both of which are located on site at Al Husn. There are also several restaurants to choose from Al Waha, Al Bandar and the Al Mazaar souq, located elsewhere on the property
CHI, the Spa at Shangri-La, is the most extensive and well-appointed private spa in Oman, with twelve treatment villas that create a sanctuary of personal rejuvenation and relaxation.
Highly recommend indulging in romantic evening cocktails at Capri Court right on the palm lined beach while taking in the resplendent beach and garden views and tasting contemporary Italian signature dishes.
