Few countries offer as many truly memorable experiences as Oman. At Original Travel we have been tailor-making luxury Oman holidays for as long as we’ve been in business. We know the country inside and out and love it for all its quirks, sights and strong sense of identity. We also love it for its array of luxurious accommodation, which can be found in deserts, up mountains and off land in the Arabian Gulf. Glamp in style between dunes in the south’s Empty Quarter, cruise around the bluer than blue Daymaniyat Islands in luxury liveaboards and watch the world go by from luxury resorts hugged by the Hajar Mountains.
Designed for diehard Bond fans, you’ll have private beaches, spa treatments and wellness programmes available to you at the drop of a hat – as well as the choice of how to arrive: speedboat, 4x4 or paraglider anyone? Double-0-heaven, right?

Oman might be a less obvious choice for a luxury holiday than some of its more ostentatious neighbours, but that isn’t to say it lacks luxury. In fact, it has it by the bucketful. Combining the charm of a bygone age with an understated (yet no less wonderful) style of luxury, Oman luxury holidays encompass various forms of accommodation and activities – all of which retain the authentic allure of the Arab world. Experience Oman’s incredible natural habitats (with added luxury and comfort), on glamping adventures in the Sharqiya or Wahiba Sands. Sleep under the stars to gain a true insight into the traditional Bedouin way of life. Of course, authentic Bedouin camps aren’t likely to have a swimming pool and sophisticated dining area. But on a luxury Oman holiday it’s about having the best of both worlds – in all senses of the phrase.
Luxury holidays in Oman wouldn’t be complete without a day or week at sea. Discover the Daymaniyat Island’s delectable landscape of empty beaches and wildlife (it’s not uncommon to see camels splashing about in the shallows) in luxury liveaboards. Have your binoculars at the ready for whale and dolphin spotting (there are more than 20 species found here) and watch as countless parrot fish, unicornfish and surgeonfish dance in the waters beneath you. Oman luxury holidays are more than just haute hotels and big boats though. They are about getting under the skin of the country, just in opulent style. With private local guides you can hike through the splendours of Saiq, tour the towns and villages of Hajar and soak in the country’s rich atmosphere from Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and its 35 Swarovski crystal-strong chandeliers. Now if that’s not luxury, we don’t know what is. On an Oman luxury holiday, our experts will be able to tailor-make your itinerary and our local Concierge will be on hand throughout to ensure every detail matches up to your definition of luxury.
