Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara

Nestled between a private sandy beach and a freshwater lagoon, Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara is the go-to getaway for those wanting to unwind and idle the days away. Whether you choose to discover the healing properties of frankincense and pomegranate in the spa, bask in the sun on an endless stretch of white sand, or explore the Al Baleed Archaeological Park just footsteps away; with 136 rooms and villas to choose from, escape to the lesser-known part of the Middle East and don’t look back.

LOCATION

Only a 15-minute drive from Salalah Airport; you’ll arrive at the Al Baleed Resort, just outside the city of Salalah, in the Dhofar region of Oman. Visit late September-early October and you’ll be welcomed by lush alpine greenery wrapping itself around the mountains and the sun as your only wake-up call. You’ll find a private beach on one side of the hotel and a natural freshwater lagoon on the other. Stand with the sand between your toes and look beyond the Arabian Sea to protected World Heritage sites, mountains, and desert.

YOUR ROOM

Boasting 136 chic and understated rooms and villas, from garden hideaways to beachfront luxury overlooking the Arabian Sea; Al Baleed Salalah has it all. For a stay that you’ll never forget, give in to ultimate luxury and stay in a pool villa complete with private plunge pool, sundeck and either lagoon views or direct beach access. Retire to your villa at the end of the day to bathe in a bathtub big enough for two with far-reaching views of the rippling Arabian waters and beyond.

WHY WE LIKE IT

When it comes to experiences; Al Baleed goes above and beyond. Tour a local market before learning how to blend and balance either Thai or Arabic dishes and pick up secret tips in a master chef class with the hotel’s top chefs. Or, take the hard work out of your dining experience and go for something utterly bespoke and pull up a chair at a table on a stretch of sand at sunset with a butler tending to your every whim. Or, for an entirely out of the ordinary experience, snuggle into a beanbag on the Middle Eastern sands to watch a film under the starry night sky.
