Oman's Incredible Green Mountain Hotel

May 12, 2014
The Gulf region is known for its willingness to splash the cash on fancy hotels. In fact, we're so used to hearing of spectacular resorts opening up in one of the big three cities of Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Qatar, that we didn’t see this fantastic hotel popping up in the rural hills of Oman. But better late than never, now we know about this gem from Alia Hotels, we decided to tell you all about it. Meaning The Green Mountain in Arabic, Jabal Akhdar is located in one of Oman’s most spectacular regions and part of Al Hajar mountain range. Perched 2,000 metres above sea level, the Alila Jabal Akhdar overlooks a dramatic gorge, surrounded by awe-inspiring mountain views. Very much a haven for adventure travellers, nature lovers and those seeking a retreat from the desert heat, the luxury hotel is a great base for exploring the region’s magnificent rugged landscape while staying in the height of sumptuous comfort.
