Sometimes you don't need magic to disappear, all you need is a destination. Nestled at about 2,000 metres above sea level, on the edge of a dramatic gorge with the Hajar mountains all around it, Alila Jabal Akhdar is a haven for all those seeking an escape to solitude, nature, and the desert heat.
Alila means “Surprise” in Sanskrit, and it suitably describes the feeling when you stay at this hotel. From the moment you arrive you will be impressed by the lavish interiors, and the breathtaking architecture that seems to vanish into the stunning, rugged landscapes of limestone and volcanic rock formations.
Designed to inspire relaxation, the suites and villas are decorated in soft nutmeg and deep chocolate tones, combining contemporary décor with local accents. They feature modern amenities including a freestanding bathtub, separate rain shower, Wi-Fi and flatscreen TV. The villas have a private terrace and pool. Everywhere you can fully appreciate the majesty and mystery of the surroundings and connect with nature.
To stay at Alila Jabal Akhdar is to embark on mullt-isensory immersive destination experience. The resort offers guests a gateway to the area’s incredible history, culture and nature with its stunning landscapes that include Jebel Shams, Oman’s highest mountain, and Jebel Akhdar, considered the fruit bowl of Oman.
Spa Alila has seven treatment rooms, a Vichy shower and changing rooms equipped with a steam room and Jacuzzi. Locally grown herbs and essential oils are used in the signature treatments, scrubs, wraps and masks.
GOOD to KNOW
Alila’s commitment to the environment is evident in its architecture, the use of solar energy used to heat the water, and then recycled to irrigate the grounds.
