Following a period of lockdowns and global restrictions, travel is taking centre stage for many across the globe, as vacations move forward and long awaited for holidays become less of a dream nd more of a reality.
Scenically wedged between the mountains and the sea, Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah, Muscat is back on the bucket-list as Oman reopened its borders on the 1st of September to vaccinated tourists with an approved vaccine and holding a negative PCR test.
The resort celebrates the occasion with the unveiling of a series of expertly curated experiences, always with well-being top of mind. Whether a memorable family vacation, restorative couple escape or an adrenaline pumping getaway, guests can now rediscover Muscat’s abundance of natural treasures, through visiting one of the city’s most coveted destinations, the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah.
‘When it comes to cities that combine nature and beauty with history and culture, there are a few places on earth that can compete with Muscat. From the shifting sands of the desert to the dramatic mountains, from the waters of the wadis to the glittering sea, Muscat’s outdoor nature and diverse landscapes are second to none’, says Rene D. Egle, Area General Manager of Shangri-La resorts in Muscat. ‘However, the city is also steeped in a rich historical and cultural heritage with bustling souqs, historic forts and ancient castles.’
Ranked among the safest travel destinations in the world according to The World Travel Risk Map 2021 by the International SOS Consulting, The Sultanate of Oman will seek to have all its population vaccinated by year end. The Sultanate’s relentless efforts complemented with Shangri-La Cares, the Shangri-La Group’s global safety program, ensure guests staying at the resort can travel with peace of mind and confidently enjoy the moments that matter most.
