The Alila Jabal Akhdar Resort is located in the heart of Jabal Akhdar, more than 2,000 meters up and isolated in Al Hajar Mountains range in Oman, about 150 km from Muscat. The resort sits on a cliff-top and overlooks a dramatic gorge surrounded by spectacular views of the expansive Omani landscape. Designed by UK-based outfit Atkins, the resort was constructed from local stones and wood, using traditional building techniques mixed with contemporary architecture. Other than the infinity pool that follows the curve of the plateau, the stone façades of the luxury resort blends seamlessly into the landscape.

The resort has 78 suites, either located within the main hotel building or arranged in individual clusters. The villas are generously spaced out around the cliff-top, maximizing privacy and providing uninterrupted views over the mountains and down into the gorges. Facilities within the resort includes restaurant and bar, day spa, heated outdoor and indoor pools and gym.

The resort is located within a short driving distance of several small villages. With hiking trails, caves, abandoned villages, campsites and fruit farms in the vicinity, the Alila Jabal Akhdar Resort is the perfect base for exploring the region’s magnificent landscape.

The hotel is part of Mark Edleson’s suite of resorts.

  1. very striking hotel and location. But where are the people? The pictures would have been a lot more interesting if there had been people photographed enjoying their vacation at this property.

    1. The resort is in Oman. Anyone caught enjoying their vacation in Oman is promptly beheaded but radical Islamists.

  2. I've been to Oman. On my list of potential vacation spots, it ranks just below Antarctica.
