Sometimes we need to just let our hair down and be a bit frivolous, and what better place to do so than on holiday! A holiday to Oman gives you every opportunity to forget all your worries and really enjoy life’s luxuries.
Often overlooked as a holiday destination, with travellers often opting to visit its neighbouring countries instead, Oman is Arabia’s hidden secret, making it the perfect place for a stress-busting holiday. Bursting with luxurious hotels, fabulous souks and beautiful beaches, the possibilities are endless in Oman and we’ve picked out the top five things do to when visiting this extraordinary part of the Middle East.

The Muttrah Souk is often regarded as the heart of Oman, with thousands passing through the market each year in search of the finest quality goods. Located along the seafront, you will find anything from incense to authentic rugs to spices all in one central location at this souk in the city.

Take a private safari trip
Safari in style in Oman on your own private 4x4 tour of the Eastern Hajar Mountains. Starting in Muscat, your tour guide will drive you to the coastal town of Quriyat before moving off road and into the mountains for some truly breathtaking views.
Visit the Grand Mosque
No trip to Oman would be complete without a visit to one of the Mosques and the Grand Mosque in Muscat is one of the most beautiful in the world. Inside the building is the world largest carpet, at 70m x 60m, which took 600 women four years to weave!
Dine at The Beach
Located inside The Chedi Hotel, The Beach is one of the most memorable restaurants in Muscat. Dine on an open air pavilion while overlooking the ocean and be sure to sample the restaurant's excellent caviar selection.
