Luxury Holidays in Oman

Why should you travel to Oman with us?

From wild camping in Wahiba Sands Desert, to palatial retreats in Muscat, Oman really is the pearl of Arabia.

Remarkably untouched, despite hiding in plain sight; a luxury holiday in Oman will take you beyond the bustling souks and ornate palaces of Muscat to discover local herdsmen out in the wadis and the pristine beaches of the Musandam Peninsula. Overwhelmingly atmospheric and steeped in history, our Travel Experts like Rob and Tom keep returning to this Arabian jewel to perfect our itineraries; whether it’s one more dune bashing excursion in Wahiba Sands Desert, another sailing adventure in the Gulf, or a stunning new hotel opening in Nizwa.

What to see and do in Oman

As ever, if you can’t see it here then we can still plan it for you.

A TAILORMADE TOUR OF OMAN

Peer into the heart of the Arabian cultural with a hand-crafted tour of Oman, a country exuding a long-lasting legacy of tradition and culture. Untended wilderness greets luxury with open arms in the many peaks and valleys of this country’s diverse landscape. Wander the souks of Muscat with our on-site, private guide, and head to unchartered territory in Wadi Ghul, the Grand Canyon of the Middle East, all on a tailormade tour by yours truly.

A CULINARY TOUR THROUGH THE CAPITAL

Due to its position on the Gulf of Oman, the surrounding sea of Muscat is teeming with fresh fish to feast on; from grouper and tuna to crab and crayfish. With a local chef to guide the way, head to Muttra Fish Market to select your catch of the day, choose fresh vegetables from sellers in between and pick up some local spices from Muttra Souq before a masterclass in local cuisine at the Crafty Kitchen.

DIVING MECCA OF THE MIDDLE EAST

While others flock to Australia and the Maldives to experience renowned diving and coral reefs, we’re here to advocate for Oman. A complete contrast from the desert and mountainous landscape of the rest of the country, the Arabian Sea is on the rise for marine life tourism. Intriguing and virtually undiscovered, hidden treasures are yours to discover while unearthing all that’s magical about these inviting and exotic waters.

The best of 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

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’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.
