Kip like a king above the mountainsJabal Akhdar, Oman

Constructed using stone hand-cut from surrounding mountains, Alila Jabal Akhdar blends sophisticated comfort with rugged terrain and Omani tradition. Perched over a gorge at 2000 metres above sea level, this new and sumptuous addition to Oman’s landscape offers sweet relief from the heat of the capital, a two-hour drive away. The aroma of frankincense drifts through the cool air, and afternoon cocktails are swilled on a deck overlooking an infinity pool. Day tours take guests into the heart of the Hajar Mountains to explore lush valleys of pomegranate, walnut and apricot trees, discover mud-brick houses crumbling into the hills, and wander terraced gardens scented with sweet pink roses.
