Shangri La's Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa-Al Husn
Travel Blogs from Muscat
Rax Al Jinzistä lähdemme kohti pääkaupunki Masqatia(käytän nyt Masqatia eksoottisuuden vuoksi;) ) Ajelemme taas kuumaisemissa, toisella puolen kohoaa vuoret ja toisella puolen kimmeltää ihana meri. On muuten aika kuuma. Matkalla pysähdymme Bimmahin kylään ja etsimme tuota maanvajoamaa, johon srilankalainen meitä neuvoi. Varsinaisesti paikan nimi on …
... The entire hotel complex was an oasis of calm and (cool) comfort [temperature set at a consistent 22 Celcius throughout the day, we were told] amidst the scorching Arabian heat outdoors.
First, about the outstanding service : we notice that about 90% of the staff was from Asia (front desk, restaurants, beach) and hence, there was no surprise when we were greeted with the well-known Asian friendliness, smiles and greetings whenever we came into ...
... alligator was chewing on my leg, I would still have to say "Everything is just peaches and cream, thank you!" with a smile on my face.) I've been to the hospital several times to visit, and she seems like she is doing well, though she is extremely tired.
Have I talked about fish, yet? If you order fish here, it isn't a piece of fish like at home. No, no, it is a whole fish. That you eat with your hands. So as you pick apart this fish, trying not ...
... good food. Class was after, then we were off to shop for food. We finally, finally went to LuLu's. It's a hypermarket, and looks like a casino. So it was met with great excitement by us. But inside it was just groceries. We got the ingredients for a salad, then wandered aimlessly for a bit. I looked for sports medicine things, but learned that here that pretty much means neoprene braces. No tape, no icy hot, no rollers, nothing. I ended up finding some Tiger Balm ...
... br> Arabic lessons were good. We have a grammar class, and a conversation class. Then our FGLL. Everyday, 5 hours a day. For 6 weeks. It's an intensive program.
Almost my entire room worked out, and we were all bouncing off the walls. I love these girls. Sometimes I feel like I'm living with a rainbow.
Your Oman fun fact:
It's HOT here. I know you think you know that, but you don't. Not like this. HOT.

Suosittelen. Hotelli on vain aikuisille, mutta toteutus niin, ettei varsinaisia kieltotauluja näy eikä ilmapiiri ole negatiivinen. Kaikki upeaa, siistiä arabialaiset tuoksut leijailevat, upeat puitteet. Kuljetus halutessaan joka puolelle aluetta. Useita ravintoloita. Yksityinen ranta, joka pysyy todellakin vain tämän hotellin käytössä. Iltapäivätee, kanapeet ja juoma ennen illallista hotellin sisäpihalla. Mahtava aamupala, kaikki on, jopa 7 erilaista maitovaihtoehtoa; eri rasvaprosenteilla, herana, vuohenmaito, soijamaito jne. Huoneet upeat, Huonepalvelu pitkin päivää täydentää tarpeita jne.
