The suites of this resort in Oman surround guests in contemporary style, laced with an authentic flavour of the destination in décor that celebrates Oman’s rich history and culture. Earthy tones of wood and stone are accented with rugs and furnishings in bold yet warm hues, while the leaves of the juniper tree, hand-painted on a wall in every suite by a local artist, bring an element of nature indoors.

Destination and experience

Located in the central section of the Al Hajar Mountains, Alila Jabal Akhdar offers guests a gateway to the area’s incredible history, culture and nature. This rugged, mountainous region is one of Oman’s most compelling tourist destinations thanks to stunning landscapes that include Jebel Shams, Oman’s highest mountain, and Jebel Akhdar, considered the fruit bowl of Oman.

Far from the bustle of modern life, the region offers an escape to solitude, nature, fresh air and the most amazing panoramic views. The resort is surrounded by mountains, small hamlets, old, uninhabited villages, caves and canyons, as well as countless small roads connecting to new valleys and views.

The resort lies close to the Saiq (pronounced ‘Sirq’) Plateau, an extensive upland plateau surrounded by craggy summits and steep gorges. The Mediterranean climate here makes it ideal for the cultivation of many types of fruits. The area around the resort is particularly renowned for growing walnuts, pomegranates and Oman’s famed damask roses, which bloom from March to May, covering the mountain side in swathes of pink. Take a walk through the rose terraces for an unforgettable experience. 

The area is also a treasure for history and culture enthusiasts, who can explore the many heritage sites in the cities of Nizwa, Bahla, Ebri and more, such as Nizwa Fort, Jabreen Castle and UNESCO-protected Bahla Fort. At Alila Jabal Akhdar, you are well placed to explore one of the most fascinating regions in the world, engage in an endless variety of activities, and experience the warm hospitality of the Omani people.


How to Get Here from Muscat or U.A.E. (Dubai/Abu Dhabi)

Alila Jabal Akhdar is located a 2.5-hour drive from Muscat International Airport and less than an hour from Nizwa, accessible only via four-wheel drive vehicle. While Oman enjoys four seasons, the temperature in Jabal Akhdar is around 15 degrees cooler than in Muscat year round, making it a great place to escape from the heat of the lower plains in the summer months, or to enjoy a refreshing break and perhaps a view of snow-capped peaks under the winter sun.

The resort lies within the interior region of Al Dakhiliyah which, besides being blessed with spectacular scenery, is the cultural heart of Oman. The region comprises eight ‘wilayats’ or districts, among them Adam, Bahla, Al Hamra and the regional centre of Nizwa. Known as “The Pearl of Islam”, Nizwa is one of the oldest cities in Oman and its former capital, once a sanctuary for scholars and a stronghold for powerful leaders. Today the rich history of this region can still be seen in an array of ancient forts, castles, mosques and UNESCO heritage sites.
