If Oman is not one of the first names that pop into your head for a retreat destination, then we are here to tell you that it should be!!
With several luxurious and exotic options, Oman is the perfect location for a short or long retreat. Muscat has a beautiful coastline with clear blue waters, which offers amazing diving, snorkeling, jet skiing, dolphin watching (dolphins by the hundreds) and yachting opportunities. There are several land-based activities to choose from, including Desert Safari, Wadi Bashing, Offroading in the desert, and ATVs. Muscat also offers great shopping, dining and a variety of cultural activities. There are a lot of options in Muscat but to truly witness the beauty of Oman, one should also travel out of the city center.

Jabal Akhdar offers guests a gateway to the area’s incredible history, culture and nature. This rugged, mountainous region is one of Oman’s most compelling tourist destinations thanks to stunning landscapes that include Jebel Shams, Oman’s highest mountain, and Jebel Akhdar, considered the fruit bowl of Oman.
Far from the bustle of modern life, the region offers an escape to solitude, nature, fresh air and the most amazing panoramic views. The area is surrounded by mountains, small hamlets, old, uninhabited villages, caves and canyons, as well as countless small roads connecting to new valleys and views.
The Mediterranean climate here makes it ideal for the cultivation of many types of fruits. The area around the resort is particularly renowned for growing walnuts, pomegranates and Oman’s famed damask roses, which bloom from March to May, covering the mountain side in swathes of pink.
The area is also a treasure for history and culture enthusiasts, who can explore the many heritage sites in the cities of Nizwa, Bahla, Ebri and more, such as Nizwa Fort, Jabreen Castle and UNESCO-protected Bahla Fort.
At Jabal Akhdar, you are well placed to explore one of the most fascinating regions in the world, engage in an endless variety of activities, and experience the warm hospitality of the Omani people.
The luxurious suites at the resort will immerse you in superior comfort and beautiful furnishings that ensure a relaxing stay. Step out onto the balcony where spectacular views down into the gorge make for stunning pictures and unforgettable memories.
