Set on the Saiq Plateau of the Jabal Al Akhdar mountain range, this boutique retreat has been constructed to blend in with the natural surroundings and the local limestone-clad exterior reflects traditional Omani style. It is designed to allow guests to admire the panoramic views from every angle, featuring a combination of 27 studios, deluxe suites and family-friendly apartments styled in monochrome with locally inspired Arabian lighting and beautifully-made furnishings many with private terraces or balconies.
The boutique resort holds native plants; ancient rock formations home to marine fossils discovered during the hotel’s construction, and a generous swimming pool offers awe-inspiring views of the rugged mountains.
The resort’s restaurant serves both international cuisine and local Arabic specialities with a choice of indoor or alfresco dining. The Caralluma Café and Snack Bar offer drinks and snacks, the latter with a terrace overlooking the pool and the canyon beyond. The open-air grill restaurant serves local specialities as well as traditional Omani Shuwa and a pizza oven – the perfect spot for a romantic dinner. The beautiful pool bar is a great place to relax during the day and is a must to take in the spectacular sunset, cocktail in hand.
Excursions include hiking through ancient olive and juniper woodlands to local villages, rock climbing or bicycling, village walks to see the farms where an abundance of pomegranate, apricot and walnut trees flourish, or a visit to a local rose water distillery as well as active adventures in the desert below. The hotel’s URU spa offers many relaxing treatments, but the most tranquil pastime is stargazing under the pure, cloudless night sky.
