The four-star deluxe hotel, Al Bandar, is one of three hotels affiliated with the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa in Oman. The name Al Bandar means “the city,” thus reflecting that in the hotel architecture. The buildings take inspiration from the capital of Muscat, boasting different heights and a variety of ornate balconies.

Guests can rent the 1056 m² Barr Al Jissa Ballroom for events that fits up to 700 people. A shuttle will take guests to the beautiful city of Muscat within 15 minutes, and the airport is 40 kilometers away.

The 198 rooms mostly face the sea, guaranteeing stunning views and modern decor with Arabic-inspired flair that showcases Oman’s spirit in a contemporary setting.

We recommend Al Tanoor to anyone who wants to try traditional Arabic cuisine in an authentic atmosphere. Sample traditional dishes from the Arabian Gulf region, plus other Persian, Mediterranean, Indian, and Turkish dishes.

Since the sea is right in front of the hotel, Bait Al Bahr serves fresh fish and seafood in a beach ambience. Al Bandar Lobby Lounge is perfect for tea, cocktails, or other refreshing drinks.
