The Jewel of Arabia, Oman is steeped in ancient history and Arabian culture, its landscapes ranging from plunging canyons to endless deserts.

A luxury holiday to Oman promises an authentic taste of Arabia, its historic villages and towns still retaining their frankincense-trading past and age-old traditions. Feel engulfed in the country's old Arabian heritage in Muscat, discovering glittering jewellery and hand-loomed rugs at enchanting aromatic souks, touring 16th-century forts and exquisite mosques that loom above the city's skyline of chalky buildings decorated in domes and arches.

Rising above Muscat, the majestic Al-Hajar mountains are ideal for a peaceful escape or an adventurous honeymoon, with a variety of excellent luxury resorts offering everything from world-class spas and hiking adventures to romantic sunset dinners on a cliff. Opt for a retreat to the otherworldly Wahiba Sands desert, staying in an exclusive luxury tented camp modelled after bedouin dwellings surrounded by nothing but boundless vistas of golden dunes Travel south and discover one of Oman's most treasured natural locations, Wadi Ash Shab, a narrow canyon containing crystalline blue natural pools, making it an excellent destination for hiking, boating and wild swimming.

Tour the ancient city of Nizwa and experience old Oman; its beige cityscapes are dotted with magnificent architectural marvels, including the mighty Jabreen Castle and Nizwa Fort, and lively souks shaded by verdant palms, transporting travellers to a bygone era. Rent a 4x4 and travel down Oman's vast coastline, where you will be greeted by stunning beachside cities and natural wonders, most notably Salalah, a paradise comprised of white-sand beaches, green valleys, and tumbling waterfalls that form turquoise natural pools. The Musandam Peninsula, located in the north, offers the perfect setting for an exclusive beach escape, with luxury resorts tucked on private beaches moments away from marine-rich waters, best explored on a dolphin-watching Dhow cruise or snorkelling excursion.

Outdoor Activities

Oman has an absolutely incredible landscape of vast canyons, mottled plains and powdery deserts all waiting to be explored.

If you love the great outdoors, then you’ll love embarking on an adventure-filled Oman holiday. Fill your days with climbing expeditions up dramatic cliff faces, quad-biking tours of the vast golden deserts, or simply hiking excursions that will reveal The Hajar Mountains’s breathtaking beauty; if you’re feeling particularly energetic, you could always climb 9,900ft to the Sun Mountain’s peak!

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

This incredible mosque is set against the remarkable Hajar Mountains, and is the only mosque in Oman that’s open to non-Muslims.

Enter this stunning white-washed mosque and the first thing you’ll notice is the decadent eight-ton heavy chandelier hanging from the ceiling; a masterpiece adorned in 600,000 Swarovski crystals! After that you’ll discover beautiful domed ceilings and pillars covered in jewel-like mosaic tiles of turquoise, blue and sea green.

Muttrah Corniche

Located along the serene waters of Muscat’s coastline, this seafront complex remains one of the city’s most vibrant and lively areas, especially after sundown.

Muttrah Corniche begins at one end with an old, traditional fish market which is worth visiting in the early morning, and then merges into the Muttrah Souk which is comprised of cobbled alleys stuffed with stands heaving under the weight of gold and copper wares. After dark it’s worth wandering the seafront and popping by one of the many restaurants for an al fresco evening meal with beautiful views of the waters.

The Wahiba Sands Desert

This burnt orange-hued desert spans over 4,000 square miles, and offers travellers a chance to feel like they’ve travelled to another planet without having to enter a rocket ship.

The Wahiba Sands is home to Bedouin tribes and soaring sand dunes that reach over 300ft high, and travellers can enjoy many activities and experiences that truly showcase the beauty of this remarkable destination. Enjoy stargazing experiences, dune bashing, quad biking, camel rides and so much more.
