This sprawling luxury resort is location between a beach and a freshwater lagoon in Dhofar, in the Sultanate of Oman. It offers a gateway to Oman’s cultural treasures and sits beside the Al Baleed Archaeological Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as the main Salalah town. It’s easy to get here from Salalah airport just a 15-20minute drive away.
There are 40 rooms, 96 villas – including 88 private pool villas – to choose from at the resort. They all feature a contemporary design, plush interiors and traditional yet high-end furnishings. They each have marble bathrooms with bath tub and rain shower, as well as a balcony with lounge seating. Some have beach and sea views, others look out onto a garden. Amenities include Nespresso machines, mini bar, Wi-Fi and LCD TV.
Take some time out to enjoy beach activities and watersports before getting ready for some cultural enrichment. This includes local trips to learn more about the area’s history, as well as mountain and desert safaris. There’s also the chance to visit the nearby archaeological ruins and age-old souk for shopping.
A healthy and varied buffet breakfast is served each morning at the Sakalan restaurant including international favourites and exotic dishes. Some dishes are even made to order at live cooking stations. Head to Mekong for speciality Asian dishes served in an elegant dining room.
