The Shangri-La ‘Barr Al Jissah’ and ‘Al Husn’ resorts in Muscat (within the same entry gates) are simply beautiful and luxurious ...the ~10 min drive through hilly mountains is quite scenic too! Worth a visit for lunch/dinner or rent a lounge chair for a day (near the Al Tanoor restaurant) if not spending the night. All of the restaurants are fantastic and won’t disappoint. Obviously expensive so be prepared to shell out more than you typically would in Muscat. Location is ‘Barr Al Jissah’ and doesn’t always show up correctly on the map - it’s on the coast, east of the Al Bustan hotel and Qantab beach but on a different road
