When you travel to Oman you will encounter dramatic landscapes peppered with forts and oases, magnificent empty deserts, rugged mountain ranges, world-class diving and a far south that is surprisingly green.

Why travel to Oman

Most visit Oman to discover its luxurious beach resorts and desert glamping. As Oman is a relatively small country, it is easy to combine beach around Muscat with a tented experience in the desert for a couple of nights. These privately set up luxury camps will take you far away from other tourists and into the stunning wilderness – ideal for a luxury honeymoon. Its warm people and old eastern imperial culture add immensely to its appeal.
For those wanting to add in some exhilarating adventure to their luxury family holiday, we can plan in some canyoning in the wadis or trekking in the mountains, or we can arrange an extensive desert trip right into the Empty Quarter with 4×4’s and a fully supported mobile tented camp.

Where to stay

Best hotels in Oman

Nothing but the best. Browse our handpicked, tried-and-tested luxury Oman hotels.

The Chedi, Muscat

The Chedi is Muscat’s best-loved beachside hotel. A stay here is as relaxing as it is refined, offering guests a choice of modern minimalist rooms and private villas, all set around tranquil water gardens.

The enormous spa is the largest in the region and a veritable temple to mind, body and soul, while the outdoor pool is the longest in the Middle East at 103m. Not only is it the place to experience renowned Omani hospitality and cuisine, it is also a fabulous base for exploring the treasures of the local souks and the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, plus just a couple of hours from the stunning Al-Hajar mountain range for adventures further afield.


Alila Jabal Akhdar, Jabal Al Akhdar

Perched 2,000 metres above sea level is Alila Jabal Akhdar, a peaceful sanctuary overlooking a dramatic gorge in Al Hajar Mountains.

Mirroring the expanse of the majestic landscape, each of the 78 suites are designed with the luxury of space in mind, strategically placed to maximise privacy and provide unspoilt views of the surrounding mountains. Inspired by local ancient forts, the resort is an ideal departure point for exploring the incredible history and culture of Oman, with an enticing menu of activities that range from hiking the adjacent Via Ferrata and cliff-edge dining to stargazing and yoga.


Six Senses Zighy Bay, Musandam Peninsula

Zighy Bay encompasses everything that the Six Senses brand stands for: elegance, excellent service and relaxation on tap.

The epitome of barefoot luxury, the resort is designed in the style of an Omani Village, with a fantastic beach and stand-alone pool villas scattered in a picturesque bay, which doubles as the perfect setting for a beach BBQ or romantic dinner. If you feel like exploring further afield, we can arrange a guided introduction to glorious Muscat, hikes and off-roading in the majestic Al Hajar Mountain range, and private 4WD adventures in the Wahiba Sands.

What our clients say

Just to let you know that we arrived back to Dubai and have our heads and memories full of amazing experiences… Kids and family absolutely loved their week and now Africa is also in their blood. Overall the trip was stunning and selection of camps and rooms perfect.

What our clients say

I can report that we all loved it. Egypt, of course, astonished us at the Great-Wall-Angkor-Wat level. Your trip planning worked perfectly and your continuous awareness and solicitude were a comfort, even though we didn’t need to call on you at any point. Ibrahim Taha, our guide is perfect: deeply knowledgeable, wonderfully clear, friendly and receptive to our observations and questions. So thank you again for doing this; after Brazil and Egypt, Bonnie and I will happily send friends to cazenove+loyd for travel help.
