About the location
Jabal Akhdar is right at the heart of the Al Hajar Mountains. Jebel Shams (the highest mountain in Oman) and Wadi Ghul (AKA the Grand Canyon of Oman) put the region on the tourist map. But even away from these giants, you can expect a dramatic landscape that soars up to 2,000-metre-high craggy peaks and then plunges back down to terraced valleys, fortress-topped ravines and rural hamlets.

Lodgings around here are remote – but that’s the best thing about them. Hotel sun terraces and swimming pools peer over canyons, while activities tend towards guided hikes and rock climbing. But although far-flung, the hotels in Jabal Akhdar are still only three hours’ drive away from the seafaring capital of Muscat.

Jabal Akhdar also has its own microclimate. It’s less desert and more Mediterranean, so you’ll come across unexpected finds like pomegranate and walnut orchards, plus mountainside rose terraces that turn pink in spring. These local specialities pop up all over Omani cuisine – watch out for Damask rosewater and apricot-sweetened curries.
Transfer time

This hotel is situated high up in the mountains probably about 45 mins to an hour off the main road (more if you???re driving in the dark!) and you need a 4x4 to reach the resort. Once here the hotel...
