Oman holidays

Fascinating holidays to Oman with Kuoni

Reached by a relatively short flight, by long haul standards at least, and offering almost guaranteed blue skies, Oman is perfect for some winter sun and, in recent years, it has emerged as a hip holiday destination. This Arab state offers you so much more than just the perfect beach break. Seek out utterly beautiful mountain and desert landscapes; experience the genuine pride that the Omanis have in their country; and see an entirely different side of Arabia than you will find in the flashier neighbouring United Arab Emirates.

  • Muscat is one of the Arabian Peninsula’s most traditional cities – the country’s history, culture and architectural are kept alive here
  • The nation’s interior is home to ancient oasis towns such Nizwa and a secluded hotel overlooking a canyon – easily combined with time spent in Muscat
  • The Wahiba Sands are an ever-changing landscape of wave-like sand dunes and are home to unique desert camps
  • The Musandam Peninsula is separated from the rest of Oman by the UAE, has dramatic coastal and mountainous landscapes and is easily reached from Dubai
