Shangri-La Al Husn Resort & Spa

Originally conceived as part of the wider and neighbouring Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah, Shangri-La Al Husn is now hived off as an exclusive resort of its own, with a luxurious standalone spa. Perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the ocean, the hotel is ideal for couples seeking exclusivity and exceptional service.

Isabel, Eleanor and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

There are 180 spacious rooms and suites in total, decorated in palatial Arabian style and all featuring balconies with lovely views. The bathrooms also feature sliding wooden panels so guests can enjoy ocean views from the bath as well.

There are four onsite restaurants and cafes at the hotel, including Sultanah, where Spanish-inspired cuisine is served in a nautically-themed dining room. Elsewhere, Shahrazad serves delectable dishes from Morocco, Lebanon and Oman in Arabian themed surroundings. For a change of scene, head to Mahhara Beach Bar, which sits above Shangri-La Al Husn's private beach, and features a live flame grill from which the chefs serve fresh local seafood. Last but by no means least there is Al Muheet, located next to the hotel's infinity pool and serving lighter organic dishes and, come evening, cocktails. Guests at Al Husn can also visit any of the 15 other restaurants, cafes and bars at sister property Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah next door.

The immaculate 330ft long private beach and infinity pool are the perfect places for some leisurely and luxurious R&R. Features such as pre-loaded iPods with personalised music selection, private butler service and pre-dinner cocktails ensure pampered treatment at every point, and the state of the art spa and wellness centre provides the cherry on the top of a totally indulgent stay.

Should you be able to drag yourself away from the sun lounger, the hotel's close proximity to the coast provides endless opportunities for aquatic excursions. Discover the conservation efforts being made to protect the endangered hawksbill and green turtle species. Alternatively, take a dip in the Arabian Sea on snorkelling or diving excursions, or keep your eyes peeled on a dolphin watching trip.

Why we love it

Al Husn means 'the castle' in Arabic, and the hotel's commanding position and luxurious service will soon make you feel like the king or queen of this particular castle.
