Sahab Resort & Spa, Nizwa

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

This mountain hideaway will give you an immediate introduction to the hospitable welcome and attention to detail that is a part of the Omani make-up. But what makes it different is its foundation in the bedrock of the country. It nestles on the Saiq Plateau amongst magnificent, timeless mountains, giving breathtaking views and astonishing sunsets. It overlooks ancient villages and has gardens filled with local flora and marine fossils that date back millions of years.

It also puts outdoor adventures at your doorstep. From Sahab you could scale the highest mountains in the Hajjar Range, take enriching walks through nearby villages, explore historic sites and enjoy private stargazing sessions. Refresh your tired muscles at the Uru spa or retire to your elegant room with its plush bed and mountain views.
