Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort

Oman, Jabal Akhdar

Perched on the Saiq Plateau two thousand metres above sea level, the Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort is a luxury haven like no other, the highest five star resort in the Middle East and home to truly world-class facilities, the staggering views over the dramatic canyons and towards the horizon are just one of the incredible features of this resort. Sophisticated Arabian architecture complements the mountainous surroundings with a distinctive Omani theme present throughout. Whether you’re sat in the large infinity pool or getting pampered in the Anantara Spa, it is a surreal setting for ultimate relaxation.
Experience a real variety of flavours with four restaurants available. For genuine fine dining with a hint of Middle Eastern influence there is the Al Qalaa whilst the Al Maisan offers a more international menu. Bella Vista is an Italian all day pool bar and Al Baha is perfect for a light option at the deli café. Choose from cooking lessons, archery, painting, tennis, yoga and seemingly endless other activities during your stay, you can even head down to the nearby villages for a picnic in the peaks.

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
2 hours 5 minutes from Muscat airport.
