Alila Jabal Akhdar
Perched two thousand metres above the rest of the world on the edge of a plunging gorge, the scenery that surrounds Alila Jabal Akhdar is overwhelmingly beautiful. On all sides, the towering peaks of the Al Hajar mountain range seem to hold up the sky, and it is this magnificent landscape that makes the resort so very special. Here, guests are invited to reconnect with nature, and to revel in the understated luxury of life amidst the clouds. Glorying in its isolation, Alila Jabal Akhdar seems a million miles from the bustling streets of nearby Nizwa, and yet, it is less than an hour’s drive from Oman’s erstwhile capital. The resort complements its breathtaking location with impeccable service, exquisite cuisine, and a full list of first-class amenities.
- Soak in the splendour of the surrounding mountains from the hotel’s heated outdoor infinity pool
- Augment the rejuvenating power of nature with a treatment at the hotel spa
