Overlooking a spectacular gorge in the Al Hajar Mountains, the Alila Jabal Akhdar resort offers the ultimate luxury in a dramatic setting. The site of an Omani military base and observation point, Jabal Akhdar was closed to outsiders until the turn of the century, when Sultan Qaboos opened it up to visitors. Today, lovers of the great outdoors will feel right at home at this exquisite retreat.
Designed to balance luxurious comforts with the surrounding terrain, the LEED-certified resort’s low-profile silhouette takes its cues from traditional Omani architecture. Elements of native construction are present throughout, from the local stones and aflaj water systems to the handcrafted copper accents and pottery. Each of the 78 suites and villas is spread throughout the area to ensure that all guests may take full advantage of the dramatically rugged views. Appointed with contemporary furnishings and soothing natural colors, the walls are adorned with juniper branches hand-painted by a local artist.
The Alila Jabal Akhdar resort provides guests with many opportunities to indulge their senses. Juniper Restaurant features an international all-day menu of culinary delights, incorporating seasonal ingredients into each dish, and lighter fare can be enjoyed at the Rose Lounge. Rejuvenate and refresh at Spa Alila, combining Asian-inspired treatments with a holistic philosophy and utilizing indulgent natural soaps with the essences of juniper and rose. View the mountains from the beautiful infinity swimming pool, or set off beyond the resort for a closer glimpse at the region. Travel to the Saiq Plateau to discover a wealth of fruit groves and rose terraces, take time to trek through the mountains, or visit the nearby historic sites of Jabreen Castle and Bahla Fort.Request Information
