This beach-front oasis is the first luxury hotel in Salalah and the hotel has been designed to reflect Dhofar’s rich heritage.
The luxury villa resort has 136 rooms with 88 villas, dotted amongst the tropical gardens, with private pools and a personalised butler service. All rooms and villas have a luxury bathtub, separate rain shower, walk in dressing room, digital concierge and amazing views of the sea, gardens or lagoon.
The Mediterranean beach bar and restaurant serves gourmet world flavours while the Mekong restaurant serves signature Asian dishes with recipes influenced by the countries bordering the Mekong River. We also love the personalised dining experience available on the beach or in the gardens.
The Anantara Spa Salalah focuses on health and wellbeing, offering a range of pampering holistic therapies, Thai massages and much more. The outdoor infinity pool is the perfect spot to relax or for the active, the array of sports facilities from a basketball court to a state of the art gym will keep you busy. The resort also has children and teen clubs and a library decked out with the newest Apple PCs.
The coast of Dhofar offers great diving and snorkelling facilities perfect for novices or experts alike. For the culture vultures the ancient port of Al Baleed is brimming with history from the early Bronze Age and for the foodies, the resort restaurant runs cooking class in both Thai and Omani cuisine.
Why we love it
The Al Baleed Archaeological Park is located next to the hotel, and guests are able to enjoy complimentary access to this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
