October 30, 2017

Shangri-La Barr al Jissah Resort & Spa has teamed up with world class triathlete Faris al Sultan for the ultimate swim-bike-run training camp.

Nestled between the dramatic backdrop of rugged mountains and the pristine waters of the Omani Gulf, Shangri-La Barr al Jissah Resort & Spa is a fully integrated destination resort spread across two hotel wings, Al Waha and Al Bandar.

It is the perfect location for this once in a lifetime training weekend, which takes place from January 11-14, 2018, with rolling hills and inclines along scenic roads through the majestic Al Hajar Mountains combined with stunning views of the Gulf of Oman.

Sultan said, “Surrounded by natural beauty in such a stunning setting, Shangri-La Barr al Jissah Resort & Spa is the perfect location for a triathlon camp. The hotel’s private beach and sheltered bay are idea for swimming drills, while the hills and leading to the resort provide the perfect terrain and routes both for running and cycling training.”

Participants can take advantage of the resort’s spa and leisure facilities, before sitting down to dinner with Sultan to reflect on a memorable day of training. Just a 20 minute drive from downtown Muscat and 45 minutes from Muscat International Airport, Shangri-La Barr al Jissah Resort & Spa is the perfect place to train.
