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.

Best place to stay in Jabal Al Akhdar with family, many activities for kids , a lovely pool, magnificent view, excellent room, and overall surroundings. Food choices are very limited, especially in terms of Asian/Indian food. breakfast was not good at all , there was no buffet due to COVID and few items to chose from. The rest all was ok.

We had wonderful 3 days in Jabal Akhdar with the family, stunning views, very comfortable rooms and good service. The best experience was the "3 village walk" we enjoyed with a local guide, Suleyman. Within these 2 hours we learnt much more about Omani mountains than we knew for the last 10 years... really recommend it!
