Located just 20 minutes from Muscat and secluded in a hidden cove lies Barr Al Jissah, a luxury haven on the shores of the Gulf of Oman.
I do not know if it is the mountains surrounding the resort, or the endless horizon, or even the sounds of the sea at its shores, or the taste of the food at its luxury hotel, or even the scent of the fresh clean air that made time stand still. But i do know that it is my whole five senses that awakened when I arrived to this community, built so close to Muscatt(20 mn) and yet so far from the world.
Time stood still. I wonder if it sank along with all my worries and anxieties in the deep blues of the gulf of Oman, of if it evaporated in the blurring Horizon.
But who wants to know the answers to all these wanderings. What matters is the effect of Barr Al Jissah to your soul. Pure healing.
A selection of aspirational homes Featuring 3 Shangri-Las and a selection of homes and townhousess, the architecture is visionary blending heritage with the natural landscape.

Elevated above Barr Al Jissah, the four bedroom, five bathroom townhomes offer uninterrupted views across the Gulf of Oman. Some of them are still available for sale.
