Nestled between the dramatic backdrop of rugged mountains and the pristine waters of the Omani Gulf, Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa is a fully integrated destination resort spread across two hotel wings, Al Waha and Al Bandar.
It is the perfect location for the Ultimate Pro Cycling Experience Muscat, which takes place from December 7 to 10, with rolling hills and inclines along scenic roads through the majestic Al Hajar Mountains combined with stunning views of the Gulf of Oman. A paradise for road cyclists, the resort offers cyclists a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend three days cycling hundreds of kilometres tackling Oman’s renowned climbs with the 2000 Olympic Games bronze medallist.
