Oman
Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort

Reached via winding mountain passes at 2,000m above sea level, as the highest 5 star resort in the Middle East, Anantara Jabel Akhdar is more than worth the journey!

Whilst the canyon views are spectacular and you could happily spend several days simply admiring the outlook, there’s also plenty of opportunities for guests to explore the Al Hajar Mountains on foot and by bike. A gym, Spa, pool, tennis court and children’s club complete the resort-feel of this mountain retreat, elevated both by its location and its luxury; a one-night stay is simply not enough.

Facilities & Activities

The resort takes full advantage of its stunning location. When you’ve explored the mountain scenery by foot or bike or braved one of the rock-climbing routes, you can head to the Spa for a hammam, jacuzzi, steam or rejuvenating treatment. For many guests a daily soak in the sublime infinity pool with its frankly jaw-dropping views goes without saying.

Fitness fans can head to the Fitness Centre or try a spot of tennis (NB tennis at altitude presents unique challenges!) whilst children and teens are also well-catered for with dedicated clubs and areas to entertain them.

Of course, there are plenty of opportunities to sit back and relax; you can simply enjoy the incredible outlook from one of the many seating areas or retreat to the library. Once you’ve enjoyed an unforgettable sunset, you can also admire the night sky with a spot of star-gazing.

Dining

Kick things off with a delightful buffet breakfast at Al Maison, elevated to ensure you can enjoy those show-stopping views as you feast. The restaurant also offers lunch and evening dining with a menu that offers a nod to all corners of the globe.

The resort’s signature restaurant, Al Qalaa fits the bill if you are looking for authentic Omani and Arab cuisine more in-keeping with the location. For more European tastes, Bella Vista, located at Diana’s Point offers unique poolside dining Italian style with views to make you sigh!

For a relaxing drink during the day or under the stars by night, opt for a coffee and snack at Al Baha in the bustling courtyard, or head up to the Al Burj lounge in ‘The Tower’, for night-time views and a cocktail under the glittering night-sky.

Rooms

All the rooms offer a special experience for guests. If the view is your focus, select a Premier or Deluxe Canyon View Room, featuring private balcony from which you can enjoy those views 24/7.

If privacy is key then a One and Two Bedroom Garden Villa, with private pool terrace, could be ideal for you. If the spend range allows, opt for a Cliff Pool Villa, so you can benefit from the best of both worlds – canyon view and private pool!

Family

Families of all shapes and sizes are welcome at this mountain retreat, with touches such as a shaded toddler pool and kid’s menu. A Kid’s Club operates for guests with little legs who maybe aren’t up to the mountain treks, and the teen-zone includes a pool-table and table-tennis.

Up to 2 children can share a Premier Canyon View Room although those travelling with young children may appreciate the privacy and extra space that the villas offer. Not forgetting the private pool which is bound to earn you parenting points!

The ultimate family accommodation has to be the One Bedroom Anantara Cliff Pool Villa with retractable wall on the outside deck enabling it to connect with an adjoining villa. However, if you are perhaps travelling as an extended family, the Three Bedroom Royal Mountain Villa also comes with those views and a private pool, not to mention a personal butler ready to attend to your every need!

Sustainability

Anantara Resorts work tirelessly to preserve the amazing destinations that they call home. Hand in hand with guests, the teams contribute to social and environmental projects in each country where they operate. Local communities are supported through grassroots involvement, as well as matching guest donations to organisations that provide vital services, such as child welfare and wildlife protection.

Location

A journey of 2-3 hours from Muscat brings you to this unique resort – you will encounter some winding roads along the way so anyone who suffers from travel sickness may want to come equipped.

The hotel is situated on the edge of Jabal Akhdar village and within easy reach of many trails – perfect for exploring. It’s just a 30-minute drive from the ancient city of Nizwa – well worth a visit.
