Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara offers beach escapism with some delicately luxurious touches
The Al Baleed Resort Opened in late 2016 and is probably the most luxurious resort hotel in the Salalah region. Classic contemporary quality seamlessly blending with ornate Islamic architecture.
This southern area of Oman is known for its quiet pace and up until recently, there were significantly more camels than cars! Superb beaches, a traditional authentic town & souk and easy access into the aptly named “Empty Quarter“ largest desert in the world.
The airport is 20 minutes drive away. Flying time from Muscat is 85 minutes.
Al Baleed Resort Salalah has a choice of:
Premier Sea View rooms in the low rise main building. 53 sqm.
Deluxe rooms, Ground Floor of the main building but with more spacious in and outdoor living space. 91sqm including garden terrace.
Freestanding One Bedroom Villas, mostly with their own swimming pool. 176 sqm of total living space.
In addition, there are 8 larger 2 Bedroom Pool Villas and one with 3 Bedrooms.
Several restaurants with differing cuisine options and locations
Arabian & Thai cooking school
Tennis and volleyball court
Motorised and non-motorised water sports
Full day Desert safaris
Kids club and seasonal teens club
Al Baleed Resort Salalah is a very welcome addition to our Oman selection.
The south of Oman is even less developed than the north and will appeal to the curious travellers looking for something new and fresh. We would suggest a stay of 4/5 nights, in combination with the highlights of the north. The beaches here are superb. Close to the hotel, you have several archaeological sites. Rub Al-Kali (empty quarter) can be visited on a day safari.
The most popular time for European visitors tends to be October through early May. During the summer months, it becomes hotter and more humid, although usually the period June to September – known as Kareef (Green season) – you also have light rain and drizzle and green shoots appear almost overnight, changing the arid scenery completely.
Anantara also has a superb hotel high up in the Jebel Akhtar mountains, 2 hours drive from Muscat.
For something very different, why not consider an Anantara triple centre of great contrasts? Start with the new resort in Salalah, for its quiet grace and great beaches, Anantara Jebel Akhtar for the mountains and jaw-dropping views and then the incredible Anantara Qasr al Sarab Desert Resort in Abu Dhabi. Complete Wow! You will have spellbinding dinner table conversations for years, so many unique experiences to share.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
