Anantara Al Jabal Akhdar Resort

Oman, Middle East

The hotel

Putting you on top of the world, this canyon-skirting retreat is the very height of luxury. Claiming a patch of Saiq Plateau on Oman’s temperate Green Mountain, it appears like a fortress rising from rocks – but inside it’s immaculately dressed, from its canyon-view rooms to its private pool villas. You’ll find chic Arabic detailing in its intoxicatingly calm spa and six dining outlets too – including Al Qalaa, an Arabian grill set in a tower inspired by Oman’s iconic Khasab Castle. With the resorts breathtaking mountain destination the views take the lead here, whether you’re swimming in the canyon-edge infinity pool, enjoying mountain experiences (like luxury picnics, photography classes, stargazing, cinema under the stars, mountain yoga, and mountain biking), or just soaking it all in at ‘Diana’s Point’, a viewing platform named after the Diana, Princess of Wales, who once visited the site of Anantara Al Jabal Akhdar Resort.

Travelled with my wife and a 5 month old baby, stayed in a 1 bedroom pool villa. Absolutely incredible property, beatiful nature, fruit and veg trees all around the grounds, stunning courtyard to just relax and chill in. Incredible villa, beautiful pool and lounge area.

Travelled with my wife and a 5 month old baby, stayed in a 1 bedroom pool villa. Absolutely incredible property, beatiful nature, fruit and veg trees all around the grounds, stunning courtyard to just relax and chill in. Incredible villa, beautiful pool and lounge area. They've thought of everything we could need. Steriliser and cot in the room. Pool did have a lot of bugs in it, but I think that's inevitable and didn't bother us too much (you can always just call them to give it another clean if needed) Service was exceptional, every single employee went above and beyond to take care of every need. Special thanks to the Al Maison crew, extremely thoughtful group of people. The breakfast and dinner buffet were amazing, just amazing and of the highest quality. This is the perfect spot to visit during the GCC summer heat. Highly recommend for families looking to get away for a few days. Read less

Our stay at Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhadar was terrific. I came with a couple of friends for a short vacation and we were amazed by the hotel. We got a Deluxe Canyon View room which has a beautiful view, the room features a balcony which was perfect to spend some quiet time. The area is extremely peaceful and quite and perfect for anyone taking a break from bustling city life. The staff were prompt and very friendly. Guest services were excellent, a little slow but that didn't impact our stay in any way. The pool has a view towards the canyon and is terrific for a short dip (its not very deep). The F&B offerings are great, the lamb and dates stew was delicious at Al Maisan. but the breakfast buffet could use some day to day variation. Overall it was a great stay! Highly recommended!

The resort is full of pomegranate, olive, fig and olive trees and so peaceful to walk around. My kids could not get enough of the kids club! They enjoyed all of the many fun and engaging activities held by the lovey and friendly staff. I had a beyond spectacular ultimate jabal climb which was recommended by on the staff members and my climbing instructor Suleman was fantastic! Made me feel at ease and took a ton of pictures and videos! We also did the three village drive with Suleman, which was very informative and the local scenery is beautiful! Overall all the staff at the hotel where brilliant and their customer service top notch! We even had our own whatsap butler, Khalid who was superb and made our stay extra comfortable. Read less
