Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort

Checking In
The first thing that strikes you about the Anantara is the unique location. Nestled high up in the beautiful green mountains, the fort like hotel is built on a cliff top plateau with prime views over the mountain range. Surrounded by such breathtaking nature, you can be sure that this is going to one of the most memorable hotel stays of your life.

Perfect Day
Start your day with a spiced Omani coffee laced with cardamom and rose water at one of the hotel’s many sun traps. After breakfasting on a spread of local delicacies, sign up for the village walk which takes you back to bygone Oman venturing into ancient villages that teeter along the cliff edge. Most local villagers have left their clay built houses for more modern homes, but a handful of families still remain. The guided walking tour ends around midday with sweet dates and more coffee. Spend the afternoon lazing by the infinity pool and if the mountain air is a touch cold you can warm up in one of the jacuzzis. Head to Bella Vista for a light lunch of homemade pastas, creamy burrata cheese and stone baked pizzas. Adventurers can sign up for the via ferrata - a rock climbing & zip line route that hugs the cliff face or sun seekers can make their way back to their sun bed. No matter how you spend your days at the Anantara, there is only one way to start your evenings: watching the sunset from Diana’s point when the mountains are bathed in golden light.

Activities
Anantara hotels are built on the idea that holidays should be more than a comfortable nights sleep, they should be the experiences and memories that you make. With this in mind, the Anantara offers its guests unique, hand picked experiences tailored to each hotel destination. At the Jebel Al Akhdar location that means rock climbing along giddying cliff faces, sunrise yoga overlooking the mountain range and guided village walks lead by a local Omanis. I can’t think of many luxury hotels in the world that offer rock climbing as an activity but it definitely made for one of the most memorable hotel stays of our lives.

If you like your privacy whilst away, then make sure to check into one of the roomy suites that all have their own heated pool. You’ll have the luxury of a private sun soaked terrace where you can while away the days in the calmness of your own space.

Dizzying views
Did I mention the view already? With views this beautiful, it's difficult not to repeat yourself. The Anantara is the highest five star hotel in the Middle East, at 6,500 feet above sea level, with sweeping views of the surrounding desert landscapes. Can you blame me for being just a little bit obsessed?
