Opened in summer 2016, Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar is a superlative clifftop resort. Set some 2,000 metres above sea level, the views from Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar are truly sublime, the journey to its rocky summit being an experience in itself!
With 115 rooms and villas, accommodation options are varied to suit the size and needs of your party. Each boasts Omani furniture, traditional décor and Amouage bath products, while the villas have personal butler service and their own private swimming pool.
The six restaurants and lounges ensure a wide variety of fine fare is on the menu, from tapas to fresh grilled seafood, sourced from the Sea of Oman. Guests with an inquisitive mind will revel in the ‘Spice Spoons’ experience, where they will accompany a chef to a local souq and to the resort’s garden to be talked through the vibrant ingredients used in Omani cooking.
Thanks to its position perched high on the Green Mountain, conditions year-round are much cooler than on the coast, and perfectly placed for exploring local cultural attractions such as the UNESCO World Heritage site Birkat al Mouz. After a day spent exploring, guests can kick back at the cliff-edge infinity pool, or head to the exceptional Anantara Spa for a relaxing treatment and dip in the indoor pool.
Younger guests - who will benefit from the cooler climate here - have also been carefully considered, with a kids’ and teens club designed to inspire young minds and enthuse them about this unique environment. A ‘must’ for all guests during their stay is Anantara’s Friday night market; a great place to pick up souvenirs and handicrafts.
