A Christmas ReUnion…


This Christmas 2015 is something to cheer and feel excited about.  Being together. All at one time . All at one place. Good relationships in family life really matters because families are the essential building blocks of any society and happy families make a happy society. My family has reason to feel happy this Christmas  as we planned a family reunion at the  ultra-luxurious Bandar Al Jissa Shangri-La Hotel Resor and Spa, an hour

The picturesque beachfront is a favorite among the numerous hotel guests. The wide expanse of the Gulf of Oman is a thing of immense beauty.

drive from downtown Muscat.My 2 kids flew all the way from Phils to be with me and my wifey in Muscat this Christmas. And the perfect place we chose to spend Christmas day was none other than this 5-star Hotel by the bay at the Gulf of Muscat.So far, the only hotel I have ever seen which can be reached majestically through winding and uphill/downhill roads over the Hajar mountain range ending up on a man-made tunnel near the entrance of the Hotel .

The trip to the Hotel from the airport of Muscat International is unquestionably exhilarating as you gaze the spectacular sights along the way and the downhill and uphill rides ending on a man-made tunnel to reach the facade of the hotel…

A gigantic Christmas Tree ( Into which Christians around the world display as a commemoration on the birth of Christ from the viewpoint of God’s Christmas Tree-The Cross) comes into view in the sprawling ground of the hotel at night-time.
