Work starts on Oman’s very first adventure resort in Al Jabal Al Akhdhar

Known for its spectacular heritage attractions and picturesque natural beauty, Oman has grown into a popular destination for people from around the world. For the global MICE industry, it presents a unique desert destination that is full of quaint charm and clear traces of the rich historic past of Arabia.

One of the other things that Oman is known for is its wide range of adventure activities that are perfect for thrill seeking corporate teams or groups. And, to capitalize on the growing market for adventure tourism in the country, Oman has unveiled plans for the first full-fledged adventure resort at Al Jabal Al Akhdar.

Currently named the Green Peak Adventure Resort, the adventure facility is being constructed atop Al Jabal Al Akhdar, located in the Al Dakhiliyah Governorate. Boasting several features that are clearly designed to cater to the needs of adventure enthusiasts from across the globe, the highlight of this new resort will be a one-of-its-kind zip-line that will allow thrill-seekers to soar over the breathtaking canyons of Al Jabal Al Akhdhar.

As per the latest reports, the project will be managed by dusitD2 and will feature the signature quality of the Dusit International Group. Expected to open towards the end of 2019, the resort will have 250 rooms and suites along with an array of adventure sports and activities.
