A fantastic small and chic resort that is perfect for families and couples
Salalah, and the Dhofar region in general, has its own microclimate with the 'khareef', or southeast monsoon, hitting the area from mid-June to mid-September. The result is that the Dhofar region is lush and green during and for some time after the khareef. The best time to visit is at the end of September and during October as the climate is not too hot, the rains should have passed, and temperatures are in the high-20s to low-30s, but the lushness remains making the area beautifully green. Temperatures in this area don't rise much above the low-30s meaning that it is bearable year-round.
Sitting on a glorious and untouched stretch of white coastline, the chic and upscale Al Baleed Resort Salalah is the perfect addition to Oman's fine selection of small resorts. With fantastic ocean front rooms and suites, this is the ideal place to relax.
The chic and understated Middle Eastern design of this luxury resort reflects the region's rich cultural heritage, being just a short walk away from the UNESCO protected Al Baleed Archaeological Park.
