Oman is an understated tropical paradise that remains a well kept secret to thousands of holidaymakers who enjoy luxury travel. Being humble is important in Omani culture, yet this beautiful country on the Arabian peninsula really does have something spectacular to shout about. However, it’s only now that the rest of the world is waking up to its luxurious hotels and stunning natural landscapes.
Combining the big-hearted hospitality of ancient Bedouin culture with thoroughly modern, opulent resorts, Oman should be on everybody’s bucket list. The long stretch of coastline along the Gulf of Oman is dotted with private hotel beaches, where guests can sun themselves beside shimmering blue waters that are warm all year round.
When the sun gets too hot, it’s time to grab some shade under a date palm and enjoy some delicious local seafood! Most of the hotels near Muscat look towards the ocean in one direction and the majestic peaks of the Al Hajar mountains in the other. Golf and snorkelling are popular pastimes here, along with swimming in exquisite infinity pools. Every hotel seems to have one!
