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.
