Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort

5* out of 5 stars

Oman’s fabled Green Mountain has become home to a brand new luxurious retreat, perched on the edge of a great canyon two thousand metres above sea level: Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar is the highest five-star resort in Arabia. Scenery on a holiday to Oman doesn’t get more dramatic than this.

The unique Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar resort isn’t all about the views, however. Booking an Oman holiday to this striking escape means you’ll witness elegant architecture that compliments the rocky surroundings, plus world-class accommodation with luxury amenities including private balconies, plunge pools, enclosed gardens and more.

With master chef cooking classes, exploration opportunities, biking, hiking and more, this is a resort crammed with exciting activities. Rent out a complimentary bicycle and map out your next mountain adventure, with the option of a ‘Bike Buddy’ to accompany you; participate in a luxury mountain picnic where you can enjoy a traditional Arabic seating laid out on a plateau, and climb either gradual or intermediate climbing routes up the Jabal Activity Wall by foot, rope, harness or cable. Throw in painting, landscape and astro-photography lessons, then tie up the evening by viewing the constellations with the hotel’s stargazing activities. With hiking tours, cultural walks, excursions and more to enjoy on top of this, you’ll never run out of things to do. There’s even a kid’s club, so everybody in the family is sure to be entertained throughout your stay. 

When it comes to relaxation, this is one of the best places to stay in Oman due to the tranquil Anantara Spa, which features the usual meltingly serene treatments alongside hammam, Arabian cleansing rituals, hot-yoga sessions and more. And once you’re revitalised, enjoy dining with a view at one of the restaurants including Italian cuisine by the pool, Arabian specialities in the only restaurant in Oman with a fort, or beautiful beverages with tapas in the Moroccan lounge. An Oman holiday to Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort brings the whole Arabian experience to your doorstep: when you stay in such an elegantly luxurious destination, this is one of the best places to stay in Oman.

Food & Drink

Al Baha

Aptly translating as ‘Crossroads’ in Arabic, Al Baha’s central setting provides a perfect place to meet up, or relax amidst the gentle flow of resort life. Let the barista serve your morning coffee, just the way you like it. Freshly squeezed juices and creative mocktails offer a tasty energy boost. Throughout the day, enjoy an international menu of snacks and light meals. Join in for afternoon tea, or pair freshly baked pastries and exotic sweets with a range of specialty teas. In the evenings, gather round the courtyard’s open fireplace for star gazing.

Al Burj

Once a natural defence, prized for its lofty height, steep sides and inaccessibility, Al Jabal Al Akhdar was used as a fortress in the mid-20th century when a warring faction sought refuge. Taking design inspiration from Oman’s traditional forts, Al Burj means ‘The Tower’ in Arabic and is the ambient Moroccan lounge. Select your drinking pleasure from a range of specialty coffees and teas, creative juices and premium beverages. Satisfy your taste buds further with a Spanish-influenced light bites menu.

Al Maisan

Meaning ‘Amazing Star’ in Arabic, the all-day dining restaurant is elevated above the central courtyard. Enjoy meals in the dining room or outside on the terrace, with stunning resort and canyon views. The day starts at the highest restaurant with a breakfast buffet of international favourites. Lunch and dinner offer à la carte dining with a culinary nod to all corners of the globe. Choose from an array of Continental, South-East Asian, Indian and Arabic specialties. Let freshly baked aromas tempt you to try homemade breads, sweets and pastries.

Al Qalaa

The signature restaurant in the heart of the resort is graced with the iconic architecture of Musandam Tower. Bringing you ambient fine dining, steeped in the culinary roots of the region, time-honoured dishes and secret recipes hail from Oman and across the Arab world. Grilled seafood, vegetable and meat specialties are crafted from market produce, freshly harvested from the Sea of Oman and local farmers. This restaurant will open for guests to enjoy by mid-November.

Al Shourfa

Poised above the courtyard, the shisha lounge is ‘A Place to Relax in the Sky’ and savour one of Arabia’s most famous culinary traditions. Originating in Persia and India in the late 16th century, the hookah has long been popular in the Arab world. Served with a decorative water pipe, the restaurant offers a menu of apple, peach, apricot, pomegranate, mango and melon flavoured tobaccos, as well as a VIP range for shisha connoisseurs.

Bella Vista

Meaning ‘Beautiful View’, Bella Vista is one of the world’s most unique and inspiring poolside restaurants - where the water meets the sky.
