Carved dramatically into the mountainside, the Barr Al Jissah complex promises to lure superyachts to the undiscovered Omani coastline. Moor in the naturally sheltered bay, guarded by rocky outcrops, and tender in to the marina to discover this Middle Eastern wonder.
The opulent complex, consisting of private homes designed by Bannenberg & Rowell and three Shangri-La hotels, offers 22 dining options – head to the Bait al Bahr fish restaurant for locally caught yellowfin tuna with white anchovy cappelletti and black olives.
For the adventurous, the rolling burnished sand dunes and mountain canyons are just a helicopter ride away, while the Chi spa is the perfect place to recover from expeditions – try the signature Traveller’s Retreat journey, which combines an aromatic bath, bio-energising body wrap and vitality massage.
To complete the Sultan-worthy experience, book the Royal Suite at the Al Husn hotel. Inspired by the 17th century Omani castle at Jabreen, the intricately decorated space offers spectacular views across the Gulf of Oman. Explorer yacht Itasca and Motor Yacht A have already been spotted off these shores and it won’t be long before other superyachts follow in their wake.BOOK NOW
