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.

  • Home to immense mountains, dramatic coasts and desert oases, you can experience completely diverse landscapes all in one country
  • The preserved ancient architecture of palaces and forts make Oman an interesting alternative long-haul stop-over destination to Dubai and Abu Dhabi
  • With stretches of largely untouched coastline and a number of decadent hotels to choose from, Oman is an excellent option for a luxury escape
