This page has been created to help you imagine your perfect luxury holiday in Oman. Find, on the left of this page, our collection of hotels and start dreaming about your luxury holiday to Oman. Oman is one of our favourite destinations – and has established itself as an ‘in’ Middle East holiday choice for those keen to spice their sun-worshipping with a genuine and exciting new travel dimension. The arrival of a growing number of international resort hotel names has further underpinned this popularity. And the reason for Oman’s success? Simple! Its exotic combination of superb scenery, a benign climate, rich culture and world-class hotel comfort.The Omanis are justifiably proud of their national heritage and traditions. Compelling echoes and images of ancient Oman are never far away. Awesome desert-and mountain landscapes and a magnificent 1,000 mile Arabian Sea coastline provide excitingly contrasted backdrops. In Oman dull moments simply aren’t on the agenda.
The immense, awe-inspiring desert landscapes of Oman offer an irresistible invitation to explore. Travel by 4x4 through the Hajar Mountains to Wadi Bani Khalid (famous for its lush oases, water pools and deep canyons) and the vast Wahiba Desert for an exciting dune drive and the chance to try camel riding. Or travel into the plains of the untamed ‘Empty Quarter’ in Dhofar. On the coast enjoy fascinating morning and evening trips to watch dolphins and whales in their natural habitat (Oman’s warm waters are home to 22 whale and dolphin species).
Nightlife & Party with Locals
Most evening entertainment, such as it is, centres around the hotels – and Oman is not the place for a 24/24 lifestyle.
Gourmet Cuisine & Dining Out
Western food is offered in hotels, while the capital, Muscat has several international options. Omani cuisine has absorbed many Indian influences - there are some good Indian restaurants and snack bars, especially in Muscat’s Ruwi district. Lebanese fare is perhaps the nearest you will get to local food in restaurants. Main restaurants and hotels serve alcohol.
World''s Best Scuba Dive Sites
With over 1,000 miles of coastline, and clean, unpolluted waters, Oman offers exciting diving options, with dramatic wall drop-offs and scenic coral lined fjords, ranging in depth from 6 to 40 metres and average visibility of 20 to 30 metres. The many dive sites around the capital include Cemetery Bay, Fahal Island and the Dimaniyatt Islands. The diving is easy, with intact hard and soft corals and a superb range of fish includes dolphins. Night dives are popular.
Family Luxury Holiday in Oman
An excellent choice for families, Oman’s resort hotels endeavour to meet the holiday needs of both parents and their children, and most beaches are good for the latter. The children will love the guided Dolphins Watch cruise to hopefully catch sight of some of the spinner and bottlenose dolphins resident in these waters. Turtle-watching by the shore is another fascinating experience.
