Description

Luxury Resorts in Oman with Only Exclusive Travel

Somewhat quieter than its neighbours Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Oman has magnificent mountainous scenery. Less metropolitan, Oman offers the perfect luxury holidays in the Middle East for those who love outdoor pursuits and humble natural beauty.

Oman is well-endowed; with rocky mountains protruding through the ground, tranquil lagoons, intricate archaeological sites and stunning Islamic Mosques influenced by Ottoman and Moroccan designs. Outdoor activities in Oman are in abundance. The desert in Oman is an extension of the Bedouin lifestyle with its ancient associations of traditional culture and authentic original customs. Tourism is on the rise, as more and more are realising the undiscovered and untainted charm of the region; be one of the first to visit this exclusive holiday destination in the Middle East. Oman is becoming an increasingly popular stopover destination for those travelling to the Indian Ocean, but it is also increasingly recognised as a fantastic destination in its own right.

 Oman, distinct from the rest of the destinations surrounding the Persian Gulf, has managed to modernise itself whilst not infringing upon its inherent Arab soul. No skyscrapers tower above the capital of Muscat, only the tower and dome of the large mosque, which earns its place due to its unassuming and authentic beauty. A place with a distinct heart, and loyalty to its traditions, the Friday goat and cattle market in Nizwa is not much different today than it was in the middle ages. Nizwa, the former capital of Oman, can be explored whilst staying at the Alila Jabal Akhdar Resort in the chasm between the Al Hajar mountain range. For a holiday full of water activities, head to the Musandam Peninsular, renowned for its diving and scuba diving facilities, and stay at the Six Senses Zighy Bay luxury resort.

Weather

Trade winds and the foothills of the Indian monsoon determine the marginally tropical climate of Oman. Inland it is very hot and dry, in the coastal plains to the north, and in the south it is generally more hot and humid. The best time to visit Oman is between November and March when the visibility is better and dominating daytime temperatures averaging around 25-30 degrees celsius. For the rest of the year, the largest part of Oman is very hot and hazy, especially between May and August.

Activities

Oman's activities are one-of-a-kind. Renowned for its fantastic scuba diving, sailing and watersport-ing conditions, Oman is perfect for those travellers who love the outdoors, inhaling fresh warm air whilst surrounded by mountains and gorgeous lagoons. From its diverse countryside conditions, to golf played in the sand, Oman has it all.

Countryside & Wildlife

Countryside & Wildlife

For what is typically considered a 'desert country', Oman astounds the visitors with its verdant gardens, and elaborate floral displays lining the highways and byways. All the parks are free to enter and usually have small snack shops or drinks stands. The main big parks are Qurum Natural Park, Riyam and Al Naseem. Oman has a surprisingly varied wildlife, both on land and in the surrounding waters. Strict laws have been established to ban hunting as a number of indigenous animals have now become endangered, such as the Arabian leopard and the Arabian Oryx. Nature reserves have been set up throughout the Sultanate to protect the natural habitats of mammals such as the leopard, Oryx, gazelle, taher, ibex, desert foxes and wild cats.

Watersports

Watersports

What's your pleasure? A sporty sloop or graceful catamaran; a convivial yacht or speedy see-doo. How about a carefree course on a stately dhow, game fishing, dolphin and whale-watching. Boogie boards, banana boats and diving... all of the above is available if you know where to look.

Trekking

Trekking

Oman is an amazing place for exploration and discovery, especially by foot, in its spectacular mountain scenery. The country is the best kept tourism secret of the Gulf region, if not the entire Middle East, having striking scenery, friendly people and year-round sunshine; the perfect place for trekking on your family holiday.

Underwater Activities

Underwater Activities

Oman has a varied coastline over 1600km long; there is a wealth of underwater flora,

marine life and diving thrills awaiting the underwater explorer. Several companies specialising in diving services offer a complete range of diving courses, diving equipment and activities (night dives, wreck dives, etc.).

Fishing

Fishing

Game fishing is now becoming very popular in Oman as would be anglers try their hand at bagging the big one. Species such as marlin and tuna are highly sought after. The sport is affordable and Omani waters are abundant in the bait fish that attracts larger predators. The coasts off Sur and Masirah are especially suited for this unique sport.

Golf

Golf

If you are planning to play golf in Oman, make sure you visit Muscat Hills Golf & Country Club as it will be a truly memorable experience. Golf in Oman was previously played on Sand Golf Courses until Muscat Hills was built and became the first green golf course in Oman. Muscat Hills Golf & Country Club is located between the mountains and the sea, the club is only 5 minutes drive from the Muscat International Airport. The par-72, 18-hole golf course is the first grass golf course in Oman. The lush green fairways and greens provide a startling contrast to the rugged desert terrain.

Shopping

Shopping

The Capital area has a number of shopping malls, mainly situated in Qurum, but in recent times, spreading to the Al Khuwair area, which house a variety of shops, ranging from boutiques to chain stores.

Horse Riding

Horse Riding

When you come to Arabia, you can't miss the allure of the Arabian riding stallion. And if you like riding, Oman has trails and the horses to take you there. You'll find the Royal Stables in Seeb a good spot to observe equestrian events staged for public and private gatherings. And if you go to the Al Kamil/Al Wafi region of the country, you can find the best breeders and trainers the country has to offer

Nightlife

Nightlife

Nightlife in Muscat tends to refer more to a picnic under the streetlamps of the coast road or a few kebabs with friends at one of the ubiquitous coffee shops. That said, all the hotels have lively bars and a few local dance venues are beginning to gather momentum. All establishments are obliged to double as restaurants.

Beaches

Beaches

Oman offers some of the cleanest, most stunning beaches a visitor could hope to see. Few beaches are private, except some attached to the beach resort hotels, or those adjoining military or official property. Weekend picnics and barbeques are popular on the beach. Many coves are perfect for snorkelling and are good for children.
