When they said Oman’s new hotel resort is perched 2,000 metres above sea level on the curving rim of a canyon, it was but natural to imagine being transported to a mountaintop surrounded with amazing views of the sky meeting the earth’s rugged terrains. That exactly is where Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort will take you, in a secluded spot within the Al Hajar mountain range.
Stone pathways lined with shrubbery and rose bushes lead to the resort’s 115 rooms and villas, which overlook either the dramatic canyon or tranquil gardens. The resort’s 82 premier and deluxe canyon view rooms boast a spacious bedroom, amongst the largest in the country, and a spa-like bathroom complete with a rain shower and separate bath alongside a balcony. The 33 one- or two-bedroom villas grant guests an intimate escape, each with personal villa host services and a private infinity pool overlooking the cliffs or hidden in an exotic garden.
With this property as an ideal choice for an incentive programme, Gulf Dunes would suggest three to four nights in the city of Muscat, followed by a night or two at the AnantaraMountain resort, or vice versa.
Imagine arriving into Oman late in the afternoon and heading for the mountai top resort on the first night. Waking up the next day to some of the best views of the mountain range is definitely a highlight. And what better way to cap the experience than with a farewell dinner on one of the terraces overlooking the mountain range?
The Anantara resort is the highest five-star resort in the Middle East, and amongst the highest in the world, making it a true highlight of any programme in Oman.
