Oman holidays combine the best luxury beach resorts with a rich cultural heritage dating back over 5,000 years. With desert and mountain oasis, ancient forts and hill villages to discover on our Oman tours, there’s a tremendous amount to explore in this inspiring country other than a wonderful beach stay.
Whether you are on your honeymoon or on a family holiday there is plenty to see and do on your Oman holiday. From the World Heritage Sites to the fantastic shopping, Oman is a traditional country full of culture, diverse scenery and hospitable people.
Musandam Peninsula is well worth a visit for a few days to see its ‘fjord’ style coastline backed by dramatic mountains. Spend a few days at the luxurious but traditionally designed Six Senses Zighy Bay, reached by car and 4WD from Dubai airport - perfect as a Multi Centre holiday. Another must do is a night or two in the desert, staying at one of the attractive inland resort camps. Here, you’ll have the chance to go camel riding or try your hand at falconry.
