Praised as one of the most hospitable and friendly countries in the Persian Gulf—and under the peaceful government of its leader—Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, Oman is a country with more than 1,500 miles of pristine coastline, lush oasis, vast expanses of desert, and impressive mountain ranges.

Located just 20 minutes from Muscat—the cosmopolitan capital— we find the
Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa, a magical place where luxury, peace and tranquility are the mandatory features. The hotel is isolated in a hidden cove with the beautiful Al Hajar Mountains as a backdrop, surrounded by a multitude of cliffs and bathed by the waves of the Gulf of Oman.

Barr Al Jissah offers unique exclusivity in its five Cliff Top Villas and eleven townhomes, with prices starting at $3.89 million. These can be acquired by citizens of any nationality since they will be immediately granted a visa to stay in the country.

Every one of the villas, situated on the edge of the cliff, is individually stacked with quality finishes and private pools. All offer endless views of the Gulf of Oman and spacious living rooms, gardens, marble floors, smart lighting, air conditioning, and indoor spa.

All the Villas have excellent decor, private pool, and ocean views

The use of modern materials in the construction of the Villas provides a high level of energy efficiency through the use of thermal insulation, high specification glazing, and natural shading techniques.

The eleven Townhomes are the result of a partnership between Barr Al Jissah and the award-winning designers of super luxury yachts
Bannenberg and Rowell, in a limited and exclusive collaboration. Bannenberg & Rowell is one of the most prestigious yacht design firms responsible for the interiors of some of the world’s most iconic superyachts.

Based on its extensive experience in designing contemporary ships, Bannenberg and Rowell were inspired by the spectacular marine environment and traditional Omani architecture to create the modern interiors of the limited edition Townhomes. The properties feature open floor plans with panoramic windows, elegant interiors, large master suites with stunning sea views, integrated SieMatic kitchens, intelligent lighting and noble materials, such as marble, bronze, teak, and stone, combined with vibrant blue hues to create intense sensations.

Guests can enjoy waters ports or leisure walks around the beach.

Barr Al Jissah offers a variety of accommodations which includes three hotels: Al Waha, especially suitable to accommodate family groups; Al Bandar, located in the center of the resort; and the six-star Al Husn, the most luxurious of the three. Specially designed for selected customers, it boasts 180 rooms and suites appointed with every imaginable comfort. The decor is inspired by the splendor of the ancient royal palaces of Arab sultans. It also includes the Chi spa—the most luxurious in Oman—offering all kinds of treatments in its 12 private spaces.

Barr Al Jissah is an ideal destination for those seeking relaxed luxury amid the unsurpassed beauty of a pristine environment.
