Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah, Oman
The Breakfast: Though Swiss-born, Barr Al Jissah’s chef Beat Enderli employs flavors and ingredients from his adopted home to create delicious morning dishes. His Omani omelette tosses onion, tomato, pepper, and turmeric, and is followed by a thin, bright-yellow, saffron-infused pancake served with honey and date syrup. Fresh, smooth labneh (a local cream cheese) comes next, accompanied by chickpea or broad bean stew and fresh-baked flat bread for dipping. Enderli always recommends finishing with succulent poached Omani lobster—or at least a cup of traditional cardamom-infused kawah coffee.
The Bed: This three-hotel resort, set on 124 acres around a private bay on the Gulf of Oman—has 180 rooms spanning a range of design styles. All, however, have wide balconies facing the sea (even bathrooms have sliding glass panels so you can catch the salt breeze from your tub).
