SiO2 The Beach Lounge — Muscat’s premier beach lounge launches this February at Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah

Muscat: Poised to become Muscat’s premier beachfront destination, Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah, the leading dining destination in Muscat is proudly introducing a new venue to complete its 13 existing dining offerings. The Si02 The Beach Lounge is set to redefine the coastal experience in Muscat, as the city’s hotspot for a feet-in-the-sand experience. Elegantly set on the edge of the 500m long stretched beach of Al Bandar hotel, opposite the resort’s two dining venues Capri Court and Chow Mee, the SiO2 Beach Lounge draws its name from the very elements that make up the sandy shores – quartz, silicon and oxygen. This synthesis of nature serves as inspiration for a place where the elements of earth, breeze and sea converge to create an unforgettable afternoon and evening atmosphere.

The Inspiration

The brainchild of the Area General Manager, Rene D. Egle and inspired by contemporary island beach lounges and elegantly combined with the beautiful views of the Gulf of Oman, SiO2 boasts a thoughtfully designed space with a thatched roof bar made from palm tree leaves. The combination of beach and contemporary furniture with light grey tones paired with blue and grey cushions adds a glamour touch to the dramatic sunset setting behind the Hajar mountains. The white drapes around the rattan cozy lounge brings a light and yet cozy sense of place to the venue for a warmer experience. The beach lounge can cater for 70 guests while keeping the venue intimate and exclusive.

A creative menu

The menu is crafted to revive guests’ senses with a creative blend of cocktails and mocktails to enhance guests’ palate- all inspired by the four elements of nature – fire, water, earth, and air. The “Above the Clouds” and “The Flying Bird” cocktails, influenced by the air element,

feature frankincense and a phoenix feather for a mythical touch. Under the fire element, savour the “Scarlet Glow” or opt for the non-alcoholic “Shazam! Mocktail,” our unique classic passion fruit mojito.

The expertly curated beach lounge menu ensures an exquisite à la carte offering available daily from 5pm until 1am.

Complementing the beverage selection, SiO2 offers a tantalising array of light bites including hot and cold Mezze as well as arancini or prawn tempura, for an enhanced beachside experience, perfectly paired with the beverage selections.

For shisha enthusiasts, SiO2 presents a unique opportunity to indulge in this cherished tradition right by the beach. Guests are welcomed to revel in the flavours as they unwind in the gentle sea breeze late afternoon.

To top it off, the evening is crowned with the sounds of our resident DJ, spinning the best chill-out and acoustic beats as well as seasonal entertainment throughout the year. There is no entrance fee for Muscat’s diners who wish to visit us.

SiO2 The Beach Lounge represents our commitment to providing not just a beach lounge but an experience that encapsulates the essence of luxury and relaxation. SiO2 is not just a place; it’s a feeling, a destination where the rhythm of the night meets the tranquillity of the sea” shared Rene D. Egle, Area General Manager for Shangri-La Muscat, Oman.

In a city known for its rich culture and stunning vistas, you can step into the captivating spirit of the Middle East at SiO2 The Beach Lounge and experience the laid-back charm of Oman, where nature, entertainment, and varied gastronomy come together to create an unparalleled seaside escape.
