The luxurious Alila Jabal Akhdar resort that opened last month, has unlocked one of Oman’s most magnificent yet untapped regions for the first time. As the first luxury resort in the Al Hajar Mountains, the resort was one one of the most hotly anticipated openings in the Middle East.

Located on the edge of a 2,000 foot gorge that is only accessible by 4×4, the resort is perfectly positioned to explore Al Jabal Al Akhdar’s rugged landscapes, a haven for adventure travellers, nature lovers and those seeking an escape from the desert heat, with absolute peace and tranquillity guaranteed.

The new luxury resort has drawn inspiration from its Oman location in all aspects – from its architecture and interiors, to the specially crafted ‘Islamic Mediterranean’ cuisine, with the famous juniper and roses that grow locally, featuring prominently throughout the menu.

Interiors of the 78 suites and villas have been inspired by the fragrant pink roses, which blanket the mountainside in springtime. Each rooms comes with its own balconiy or terraces, whilst the infinity pool stretches out over the gorge.

For those looking to explore, a host of bespoke Alila experiences range from the cultural and culinary to the adventurous and indulgent, from canyon walks and tours of the local villages and rose plantations to private palm-shadowed picnics and sensational star-lit suppers. For something more relaxing, the first Middle East outpost of the acclaimed Spa Alila brand includes seven treatment rooms, Jacuzzis and private al-fresco courtyards with signature treatments incorporating local ingredients including rose water, fresh pomegranates and fruits – get us booked in!
