Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort

Experience the epitome of mountain luxury at this upscale resort in Jebel Akhdar. Enjoy sweeping canyon views, traditional spa treatments, guided excursions, fabulous stargazing and private dining.

Set on the edge of a canyon in the mountains of Jebel Akhdar, this sumptuous hideaway is one of the world’s highest luxury resorts. Where you can drink in breathtaking vistas across the rugged landscape from the peace and privacy of your own balcony. Or, if you’re staying in one of the sophisticated villas, soak in a private pool surrounded by lush, exotic gardens. 

When you’re not revelling in the serenity of the resort, you could be out and about exploring the valley and its rural villages on foot or by bike. In the nearby city of Nizwa you can browse the bustling souq for ornamental silver jewellery, whilst the 17th century fort is a must-visit historic site. You can explore the towering sand dunes of the Wahiba Desert by 4x4; go swimming in a natural pool and drink cardamom coffee in a traditional Bedouin house. And after dark, head to the resort’s stargazing platform for a front row view of the dazzling night sky.
