Whether you choose to take in bustling souks, timeless fortresses, soaring dunes or romantic seascapes, The Sultanate of Oman offers an inspiring diversity of exceptional experiences.
Where the majestic Al Hajar Mountains meet their luminous reflection in the serene waters of the Gulf of Oman, The Chedi Muscat
rises amidst an elegantly landscaped 21 acre garden oasis.
On the outskirts of Muscat, it’s possible to sniff the world’s most expensive perfume, Amouage where it has been handcrafted for generations, to see turtles at the Ras al-Jinz Turtle Reserve, or grab your camera for the colours and characters at the weekly livestock market at Nizwa.
Those looking for adventure can head into the rolling Wahiba Sand dunes, summit Oman’s highest peak Jebel Shams in a 4×4 or hike to the Sultanate’s remote mountain villages where artisans still craft traditional pottery by hand. Alternatively, you can watch the equally skilled craftsmen build dhows at the harbour in Sur and visit the Corniche at dusk when the lights come on around Muttrah’s souk, a hive of Omani social activity late into the Arabian night.
