Built in the style of an Omani fishing village, this eco-friendly resort on the Musandam Peninsula is a breath of fresh air  

The Rooms and Suites

You can arrive secret agent style by paragliding into this dream-like resort for an idyllic escape from everyday life. You’ll feel a sense of calm wash over you as soon as you check into your villa or suite, each of which has a shaded patio and private plunge pool. Nestled between the glistening Gulf of Oman and the craggy Musandam Mountains, you can soak up great views from every angle.

The Food

Curated dining spots turn simple meals into lasting memories. The Bedouin dining experience at Shua Shack gets our vote for its spread of Omani favourites, such as slow-cooked lamb, to feast on with your toes in the sand. For spectacular vistas, it doesn’t get much better than Sense on the Edge, with its 5-, 7- and 9-course tasting menus served against a stunning backdrop 293 metres above the bay.

The Activities

Activities abound at this buzzing resort. For an exhilarating experience, you can take to the sky in a microlight aircraft, or go scuba diving in the plankton-rich waters. Younger guests have plenty to keep them occupied thanks to the newly-refurbished kids’ and teens’ clubs, including feeding the goats and camels. And if you just want to relax, the resort’s award-winning spa is a must-visit.
