Perched nearly 9,850ft above sea level, on the curving rim of a great canyon, the five-star Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort is the highest resort in the Middle East and the second highest in the world.
The soaring mountains are perfect for exploring, and a mountain-bike ride through Oman’s epic scenery is the best way to experience the cultural and historical points of interest, especially since you’ll have your own private guide to show you authentic local spots and share their unmatched knowledge of the area. The terrain is ideal for explorers, who can discover the labyrinth of narrow roads and visit the historic fortress Bahla Fort, situated at the base of the Jebel Akhdar
highlands, or head to the pottery souk in a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Located on the eponymous “green mountain” (al Jabal al Akhdar in Arabic), the resort is a secluded haven with luxury villas overlooking the vast canyon or tucked away in an exotic garden. The villas are furnished with authentic traditional Omani designs but equipped with state-of-the art technologies.
