Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort 

Spectacular canyon views

This resort is a mountaintop oasis combining Omani tradition and VIP glamour.

The experience at this resort starts even before you arrive. A 4x4 transfer is needed to navigate the undulating roads leading to its setting at the top of a mountain, with increasingly impressive views the closer you get. Designed in the style of an ancient Omani fort, this six-acre resort is the highest in the Middle East. It combines staggering vistas of the rugged, russet-coloured canyon with an elevated level of service that suits its VIP regulars – it was billed as one of the world’s most remarkable places to stay on BBC’s Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby.

Why we love Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort

  • Omani culture and tradition is infused throughout the resort; the staff wear traditional Omani dress and there are stunning Arabic features like cascading pendant lanterns and beautiful arches that offer a taste of the region from the comfort of a serene mountain oasis.

  • Guests who prefer pure relaxation can opt for a rose oil massage or a fresh pomegranate body scrub at the Anantara Spa

  • The main infinity pool has views that you might find on a trek deep within a national park

  • Take on the rugged terrain on a guided rock climbing expedition with a zip line
