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.
