We’ve found another unique gem for you with the Alila Jabal Akhdar hotel that sits in one of Oman’s most spectacular and beautiful regions of the Al Hajar Mountain range. Designed to be in harmony with the environment and preserve the natural charm of the area this 78 room resort combines a minimalist and authentic décor seamlessly. This is a secluded haven, the perfect escape for those who are craving some solitude, fresh air and panoramic views in the lap of luxury.
Sat 2000m above sea level the Alila Jabal Akhdar lies within the region of Al Dakhiliyah, the cultural heart of Oman, and close to the famed Saiq Plateau. Fly to Muscat international airport and your exclusive hideaway is a scenic two and a half hour drive away. The resort is a gateway to the region’s rich history, culture and nature. From here you can discover Oman’s oldest city as well as the UNESCO protected Bahla Fort.
Choose from an array of stunning suites and villas, each with breathtaking views of the dramatic gorge which the Jabal Akhdar perches atop of. The rooms are a harmonious fusion of traditional local craftsmanship and contemporary architecture that creates a uniquely relaxing environment. Think earthy woods and stones with warm colored rugs that reflect the ethnic influences of the region. Copper ornaments, handmade pottery and hand painted murals of the juniper trees that are native to the area complete the pretty picture.
Why we like it?
It’s the originality of the Alila Jabal Akhdar that’s won our hearts. We love that the traditional style of Oman has in no way been lost in creating such a sleek and modern property. The resort grounds even feature distinctive Aflaj water systems in ode to Oman’s old school irrigation channels. Throw in the once in a lifetime scenery, outdoor heated infinity pool and the ancient Asian healing techniques in the spa and we know you’ll never want to leave.
