Set on the rocky Saiq Plateau, Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort offers a sanctuary of 115 guest rooms and villas which open out to gardens or onto views of this impressive canyon. Here you'll find Diana's point, the famous viewpoint where the late Princess Diana of Wales visited in 1986.
Surrounded by craggy peaks, the wild Saiq Plateau lies around 2,000m above sea level, once one of the most inaccessible and uninhabited regions in Oman. The dramatic rugged landscape of Jabel Akhdar - the Green Mountain, is where you'll find Anantara. Now a nature reserve, Jabal Akhdar is a great place to explore the lush, green villages that dot these mountains or just to take in the impressive views by the pool.
The resort itself features three restaurants, a lounge and a deli café, giving guests a variety of dining options to choose from. With the Asfour Kids Club and Jabal Teens Club, all ages are catered for and parents can rest assured that everyone will have an enjoyable stay. The recreation, fitness centre and tennis court are great for those wanting to keep active whilst Anantara's signature spa will provide complete relaxation - there's even a hammam where you can practice hot yoga.
There are plenty of activities available too. Take to the hills either trekking or with a mountain drive or enjoy a cultural visit to the historic city of Nizwa. At the right time of year you can even drive to see Damask roses cascade beautifully down the mountains in full bloom and learn about the age-old art of making sweet-smelling rose water. A stay at Anantara Al Jabal Al Ahkdar Resort can be tailored to suit your interests and needs, whether that be exploring the cultural highlights of the area, trying some active pursuits both within and outside the resort, or simply relaxing and enjoying the renowned Anantara service.
