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.

A resort nestled at more than 2000m elevation offers breathtaking sceneries and amazing facilities. A retreat for whoever is seeking a time out from the noisy routine of daily life. It just seems that life stopped. I cannot rate the stay at the hotel as we just visited for the day but I can assure that the resort is amazing.

I recommended the place to many friends already. No regrets, would come back any time for some extra warmth and relaxation! Thanks to all the staff! Read less

We experienced a great stay at Anantara Al Jabal Al Akdhar. Very relaxing. The site is truly remarkable and the facilities top notch. There is much to do and you never tire of the mountain views. And the food was excellent and quite varied.
