Set between a glistening lagoon and a palm-fringed private beach, the resort’s 136 stunning rooms and villas draw inspiration from the spectacular Arabian forts of antiquity.
Al Baleed Archaeological Park, the exquisite Land of Frankincense and the Empty Quarter’s lost city of Ubar are just a whisper to the concierge away.
Between the months of June to September, Salalah’s desert is transformed into a paradise of lush grass, waterfalls and coconut palm by the cool Khareef monsoon.
Three celebrated restaurants offer a diverse range of Asian, Mediterranean and International flavours alongside delectable, time-honoured Omani favourites.
The exquisite Anantara Spa, home to the first hammam in Salalah, draws from local frankincense, coconut and banana palm to create luscious treatments and rituals.
Between an enchanting freshwater lagoon and the glittering waters of the Arabian Sea, lies Al Baleed Resort Salalah. Beautiful low-rise villas, inspired by the stunning coastal forts of ancient Oman, lie surrounded by a blanket of coconut palms, banana trees and frankincense.
Within a paradise of stunning vistas, lively souqs, UNESCO-protected heritage sites and just a 15-minute drive from the airport: the resort’s location is exceptional. Between the months of July and September, Salalah is blessed with a short, refreshing monsoon - a true rarity in the Arabian Peninsula. As a result, Salalah’s desert blossoms to life, and the stunning Omani landscape is temporarily painted green by a coat of soft grass and lush foliage. All year round, however, guests of Al Baleed Resort Salalah can make the most of the spectacular surroundings: exploring ancient ruins, lost cities and vibrant souq markets - or simply relaxing on the gorgeous beach.
After exploring the lost city of Ubar, or wondering at the breathtaking beauty of Sultan Grand Mosque, the resort’s spectacular Anantara Spa beckons. Home to Salalah’s first Hammam, treatments draw from both Thai and Ayurvedic tradition. Local coconut, pomegranate and frankincense oil are delicately blended into treatments and the four-hand synchronised Frankincense Ritual is exquisite.
Reminiscent of the ancient Arabian forts dotted along Oman’s coastline, the resort itself is beautiful. Gardens of fountains, banana and coconut palms are interrupted by beautifully private low-rise accommodations and white-walled gardens. All come with marbled bathrooms featuring standalone egg-shaped baths and luxurious Omani Amouage toiletries. The sumptuous Premier and Deluxe rooms incorporate delicate Omani elements, such as beautifully sculpted doors, embroidered fabrics, warm lanterns and traditional wooden shutters. Villas are equally elegant, with most offering cooling plunge pools and private palm-fringed gardens. For gorgeous views of the Arabian Gulf or the flourishing lagoon, choose the Beach and Lagoon view rooms and villas.
The quality of Al Baleed Resort Salalah’s three restaurants is exceptional. Lavish breakfasts, authentic Arabic fare and fiery Indian cuisine await at Sakalan, the beautiful indoor and poolside restaurant. Drawing inspiration from the eponymous river region, Mekong offers a delectable selection of Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese dishes. Al Mina brings the vivid, zesty flavours of the Mediterranean to Oman, perched on the beautiful beach overlooking the ocean. In the evenings, tantalize the taste buds with a Wine Master Class, or retire to Al Mina’s terrace for a vibrant shisha under the stars.
Ideal for both families and couples, Al Baleed Resort Salalah’s beautiful accommodations and unforgettable selection of activities will delight all ages. Private starlit dinners on the beach and wonderful Thai and Arabic gastronomy cooking immersions are perfect for honeymooners and couples. For families, the beautiful and spacious villas are ideal, while the dedicated Albahhara Kids Club, Alshirae Teens Club and fantastic range of activities will keep everyone entertained.
