Anantara Al Jabal Akhdar
In Oman’s northwest lies Green Mountain, and here, upon Saiq Plateau, sits Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar. More than 6500 feet above sea level, it is the Middle East’s highest five-star resort and, perched on the rim of a vast plunging canyon, the views from every vantage point are stunning. Surrounded by gorgeous mountain scenery, and with all the benefits of a temperate climate, the resort is perfectly situated just two hours’ drive from Muscat, and near to all the wonders of Nizwa. Based on the awe-inspiring architecture of its ancient counterparts, guests will be enchanted by the towers and courtyards of Al Jabal Akhdar, where historic elegance meets modern luxury. The comprehensive range of facilities include an infinity pool, fitness center and tennis courts, library and spa, not to mention a huge array of dining options. Kids and teens have their own dedicated clubs so the whole family will be well occupied and happy, and the stylishly appointed rooms and private villas offer accommodation to suit all parties.
Why We Love This Hotel
History: Set amid the mountains overlooking ancient Nizwa, the resort takes cues from the Middle East’s historic and storied fortresses.
Location: Two hours’ drive from Muscat, the resort is easily accessed, and yet its mountainous location makes for a tranquil retreat from the bustle of city life.
Service: With fully-staffed kids and teens clubs, spa and fitness experts, and the in-villa hosts, guests’ every need is taken care of 24 hours a day.

Smugglers run goods to Iran, oil tankers rest on the Strait of Hormuz, and dolphins swim bright, coral waters surrounded by arid cliffs. This is Khasab.
