A fascinating, highly traditional country, with just a handful of international hotels, wonderful culture and history, with varied sightseeing opportunities both on land and sea. Flying time is 8 hours. Our main featured hotels are grouped around the capital of Muscat. We also arrange the Six Senses Resort in Omans Musandam Peninsula which is usually accessed via Dubai.
Of all the countries in the region, Oman probably offers the most diverse scenery, plus it has a rich culture and proud history. Tourism has arrived, but the pace is much more gradual, with the integrity of the destination foremost to any development plans.
All tours can be easily personalised to suit your own requirements, but these are just a few of our Oman Touring Options:
Set in extensive tropical gardens leading down to a long stretch of soft sand beach and with the dramatic Hajar Mountains as a back drop. The luxurious Al Bustan Palace has almost been completely enhanced in the last couple of years. With tropical gardens and equally extensive soft sand beachfront, there is plenty of space to move to quieter areas, even at busier times.
Alila Jabal Akhdar Resort is one of the most exciting resorts, opened early Spring 2014. Located high in the central range of the Al Hajar Mountains, 115 miles inland from Muscat Town and international airport ( just over 2 hours drive.)
Anantara Al Jabal Akhdar Mountain Resort is a new luxurious resort, opened in 2016.
