Stay at the Alila Jabal Akhdar
Breathe in the air of authentic Oman, from a base that superbly blends history with nature. This is a remote mountain residence enveloped by valleys, where warm service and Middle Eastern generosity make you feel at home. Soak in the vantage as you lay idle in a stone cabana. Ahead of you, the sun dances across the infinity pool.Hiking boots at the ready, the next day begins with a spontaneous wander. Trails here pass concealed villages and more. Conquer a cave climb via ferrata, before returning to a spa sanctuary lathered in healing and zen. Ambient dining by the cliff’s edge comes next, preceded by sundowners at the illustrious Rose Lounge.
Situated in the Al Hajar range, Alila calls Jabal Akhdar, or the Green Mountain, home. Muscat International Airport is a 2-hour drive, from which transfers can be arranged. Alternatively you can rent your own car, though this has to be a 4WD due to the terrain.
The hotel comprises 84 beautifully appointed suites, alongside two private villas. Design spills in shades of black and beige, with some bold specks of colour. Stays give way to sleepy mountain vistas. Meanwhile, the Jabal Villa comes with a private pool.
Who is it for
Children of all ages are welcomed, while a dedicated Kids Club makes sure they’re well-entertained. The secluded natural setting also promises both intimacy and adventure for couples wishing to connect.
