If you really want to connect with Oman’s past, stay in a true mountain retreatl; parts of which are up to 270 million years old.

If you’re interested in discovering the real nature – and the true character – of the country you should make sure that the Sahab Hotel is part of the itinerary for your bespoke holiday to Oman. The comfortable Sahab Hotel will give you an immediate introduction to the hospitable welcome and the careful attention to detail that is a part of the Omani make-up, but what makes this hotel different is its foundation in the bedrock of the country.

It nestles amongst magnificent, timeless mountains, giving breathtaking views and simply astounding sunsets. It has very pretty gardens featuring local flora. And it is also built around a collection of marine fossils that date back 270 million years. Why are sea creatures found so high in the mountains? Sahab has the answer!
