Remote Lands Adds Oman to Portfolio of Luxury Travel Destinations

Remote Lands, the world’s leading ultra-luxe Asia travel specialist, has expanded its range of Asian destinations to 33 with the addition of the vibrant Middle East nation of Oman - its second Arabian Peninsula destination after the 2013 launch of the United Arab Emirates.   One of the safest and most beautiful countries in the Middle East, Oman is fast developing an excellent reputation as a luxury destination while remaining relatively unexplored and undeveloped. The country boasts stunning and varied natural landscapes, including vast deserts, spectacular mountains and canyons, palm tree-fringed beaches, and lush green countryside; as well as a range of manmade sights including bustling souks, historic forts and gleaming mosques.   Must-see destinations in Oman include the charming capital Muscat; the sand dunes and bedouins of the Empty Quarter and Wahibi Sands; the lush, scenic Saiq Plateau; and the historic coastal town of Sur. The country is also a paradise for lovers of the outdoors with activities such as hiking, desert safaris by 4x4, wildlife spotting (including rare sea turtles), and sailing/water sports.   Luxury travelers are well catered for by a growing range of lavish high-end hotels such as the truly unique Six Senses Zighy Bay; the exclusive Chedi in Muscat; the romantic Desert Nights Camp in Wahibi; and the opulent Al Bustan Palace (a Ritz Carlton hotel) near Muscat.    “We’re really excited to add Oman to our list of destinations” says Jay Tindall, Remote Lands’ co-founder and COO. “It’s a country of amazing internal contrasts, with mountains, deserts and beaches all in one relatively small country.”   Tindall also believes Oman is best visited alongside its neighbor, UAE. “Oman is very much the old Arabia,” he says. “It’s very traditional, authentic and remote and is a complete contrast to the skyscrapers of Dubai & Abu Dhabi.”   Remote Lands offers a selection of suggested Oman itineraries on its website; the company can also create tailor-made Oman itineraries for its clients.
