Scented Memories by Jo Loves
Nothing beats a sensory experience that blends fragrance with luxury. Jo Malone CBE recently collaborated with Shangri-La Al Husn to craft something special. For those staying at the resort, a Jo Loves gift set awaits, which includes a body cream, a scented candle, and the latest Jo Loves Ebony & Cassis perfume. But it is just the beginning. An indulgent couple massage at Luban Spa using Jo Loves scented body cream is also included. Signature Jo Loves cocktails are served in the courtyard at the apéritif hour.

Innovative Zero-proof Cocktails
Shangri-La has brought Lyre’s non-alcoholic cocktails to Muscat, crafted perfectly for diverse palates. Thanks to natural essences and extracts, they replicate the taste, aroma, and appearance of alcoholic counterparts, avoiding the sugary taste of typical mocktails. One can enjoy the essence of original cocktails without the hangover worries. The innovative cocktails can be infused with locally sourced botanicals, such as bay leaves, lavender syrup, butterfly pea, Frankincense, pistachio orgeat, chai spiced syrup and pomegranate. A heady concoction of Arabian and Asian cultures!
A scented journey in the Frankincense Garden
A guided tour, curated for cultural enthusiasts, unveils the art, history, and architecture deeply rooted in the cultural heritage. It is followed by a Frankincense Garden tour led by Khalid Al-Amri, Oman’s first accredited Frankincense sommelier. The team has also developed several recipes and beverages infused with Frankincense, such as the smoked chicken on Frankincense and Shangri-La Spritz infused with gin, lavender syrup, pineapple, pink grapefruit, butterfly pea and sparkling wine. It comes in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions.
