Shangri-La Muscat Sets the Stage for Unforgettable Indian Weddings


March 2024: Nestled between the majestic Hajar Mountains and the shimmering Gulf of Oman, Shangri-La Muscat emerges as a destination within a destination. Its stunning landscape and grand architecture provide the perfect backdrop for unforgettable celebrations. At Shangri-La, traditional rituals take on modern expressions while giving every wedding a distinct signature.

As you enter the grand foyer of Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah – inspired by the architecture and history of old Muscat – you will witness the regality of the resort. Set on a breathtaking 124-hectare property, surrounded by unspoiled beaches and incredible vistas, this dual luxury resort complex allows you to fully or partially reserve and tailor it to your wedding day needs. With two distinct wings – Al Waha and Al Bandar – the guest accommodation is taken care of smoothly.

Multi-Functional Venues

Choosing Shangri-La Muscat for your wedding eliminates the hassle of searching for multiple venues or arranging for guest transports for various events. The grand Barr Al Jissah Ballroom can easily accommodate up to 850 guests, making it ideal for a large sangeet or formal reception. Envision a lavish celebration in this pillarless ballroom adorned with crystal chandeliers, where every detail reflects the essence of timeless elegance.

The outdoor venue options are equally stunning. Imagine exchanging vows at a mandap placed in the middle of the white sand beach, along a pristine 500-metre coastline, with the sparkling water as your witness. The private cove at the beach and garden are also perfect for pre-wedding photoshoots, traditional ceremonies like haldi and mehendi, and post-wedding brunches. Its amphitheater is capable of hosting a party for over a thousand guests.

As the sun sets, the dual resort complex is illuminated by the soft glow of landscape lighting. Outdoor spaces become enchanted realms, perfect for hosting vibrant sangeet and reception functions under the starlit sky.
