Oman luxury holidays
The Kuoni Collection of Luxury Holidays in Oman
Oman remains a largely undiscovered land, bathed by the waters of the Gulf and the Indian Ocean, and boasting long golden shores, a starkly beautiful interior and the spectacular fjords of Musandam.
Muscat, the capital of Oman, is at the centre of a strong traditional culture and the core of Oman’s extraordinary 5000 year history. Consequently there is no shortage of attractions and cultural interests, including the impressive mosque and bustling fish market.
Away from Muscat, explore the numerous castles and forts. A trip to Wahiba Sands to experience the magic of the desert, and Ras Al Junaiyz, a sanctuary for green turtles are not to be missed. The clear deep blue waters off the coastline of Oman are also one of the best diving grounds in world.
In accordance to Muslim beliefs and traditions, religious festivals are timed according to local sightings of the moon. During the month of Ramadan (Ramadan dates are approx. July 09 to August 07 2013), locals will fast during the day, some restaurants may close and there may be restrictions on smoking and drinking. Please respect the Muslim traditions and customs of this mystical and hospitable country.
