Lose yourself in the unspoilt, rugged beauty of Oman. It has a mystical charm all of its own and boasts spectacular scenery and stunning coastlines, plus some of the most individually luxurious resorts you will ever have the pleasure of experiencing.
It’s not as glitzy as its UAE neighbours, but is still an intriguing mix of centuries old tradition and hip contemporary. Lost cities and immaculately preserved palaces, citadels and minarets, work in harmony with designer leisure complexes and exclusive shopping malls, but this enchanting sultanate also has a relatively undiscovered feel to it.
Live the dream...
Culture vultures will be enthralled by the well preserved 17th Century Niwaza Fort and Bahia Fort, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site; while the capital Muscat is like stepping back in time. This is also the land of spas with Chedi Jade or Ayurvedic Abhyanga massage for mind, body and soul.
Wadi Nekhar is Oman’s answer to the Grand Canyon and you can camp under the stars, Bedouin style, after a jeep safari through the expansive Wahiba Sands. Swim in the cooling emerald green waters of Wadi Shab (the ravine between cliffs) and Turtle Beach is an especially magical place during the egg-laying season.
