Wahiba Sands, Oman

Wahiba Sands

An ocean of sand dunes.

Given the name Wahiba Sands, guests know exactly what they’ll be expecting on a tour to this dramatic region of Oman. As if straight from the films, Wahiba Sands is miles upon miles of rolling sand dunes. Camels aren’t the only thing you’ll find here though – engaging local tribes and luxury Bedouin camps share the land harmoniously. Off the beaten path and full of wonder, your time here will be spent star-gazing, sandboarding, camel riding and marvelling at otherworldly landscapes. It’s time to step into Arabian Nights.

Muscat in Oman


Modern yet traditional, Oman’s capital is a taste of true Arabia.

A port city located in the Gulf of Oman, Muscat is a hub of Islamic culture and history. Narrow streets lead way to colourful markets and spectacular mosques, while the waterfront provides vistas of the Western Al Hajar mountains that are sure to take your breath away. More so, the city of Muscat is making a name for itself in luxury travel, and The Chedi Resort is only the beginning of this flourishing capital being on everyone’s radar.

Jebel Akhdar Mountains , Oman

Jebel Akhdar Mountains

Oman’s Grand Canyon.

A labyrinth of wadis and a place where roses, apricots and pomegranates flourish, Jebel Akhdar sits 150km from Muscat but feels like a different world entirely. Some 2,000 metres above sea level, in the midst of terraced orchards sits Alil Jabal Akhdar. A secluded hotel rustic suites handcrafted by local artisans and panoramic views over the gorge below, Alil Jabal Akhdar hotel truly is our hidden hideaway.
