Alila Jabal Akhdar

Nizwa & the Empty Quarter

Located in the Al Hajar Mountains, Alila Jabal Akhdar boasts a show-stopping position in an area of spectacular natural beauty a little off the beaten track. Overlooking a gorge, this luxury boutique hotel is the place to be to explore the rugged landscapes.

Constructed from local stone and wood, this property feels authentic and special from the start. Frankincense burns in the lobby where smiling staff welcome you with a tray of coffee and dates.

The rooms range from the standard Mountain View category to two enormous standalone villas with two bedrooms and a private pool. Each one is calm and uncluttered with neutral tones, dark woods and local crafts.

The Juniper restaurant offers the chance to dine inside and out as weather permits. At night the al fresco tables are bordered with lit-up rills and fountains and guests can enjoy a menu of tagines and international dishes.

Other facilities include Spa Alila, heated outdoor and indoor pools and a fitness centre.

Why we recommend Alila Jabal Akhdar

It’s a total adventure! Access to Alila Jabal Akhdar is by 4WD vehicle only, and the ascent is a scenic masterpiece in itself thanks to the mountain views. It’s well worth journey as this is a superb hotel with a soothing and sultry atmosphere and great service. Larger groups should opt for the standalone villas that come with a private pool.”
