The luxury resort is perched 2,000 meters above sea level, making it the highest five star resort in the Middle East. Only two hours’ drive away from Muscat International Airport, the Anantara Al Jabal Akhdar is a tranquil oasis perfect for a relaxing escape.
The 115 luxury rooms and villas at the resort all come with a grand bathtub, separate rain shower, walk in dressing room and digital concierge service with views over the gardens or Canyon edge. The villas each have their own private pool and personalised butler service providing the ultimate luxury experience.
From the Italian pool bar and restaurant to the Arabic Grill and Moroccan sky lounge, the resort caters for all palettes and provides a variety of dishes and drinks to enjoy both indoor and out.
The Anantara Spa boasts two indoor swimming pools, a Jacuzzi and separate male and female thermal suites with salt and steam rooms. A separate pool lies outdoors along with a fitness centre, tennis court, kids club and teen club and even a library with an interactive museum.
If you ever tire of the hotel facilities then there's an even longer list of things to do in the nearby area. These include hiking, biking, star gazing and archery. For the culture vultures a visit to nearby Birkat al Mouze, a 400 year old village and UNESCO world heritage site, should provide enough history for the whole holiday.
The famous 'Diana's point' is situated on the resorts edge and offers incredible views over the canyon.
