Perched 2,000 metres above sea level on the curving rim of a great canyon, the resort is a secluded haven for the intrepid and discerning. Discover a cultured treasury of authentic indulgences and immersions in the destination’s rich heritage. The arrival experience takes guests on an adventurous drive – two hours from Muscat International Airport or four and half hours from Dubai – past date plantations, dry riverbeds known locally as wadis, and historical forts. The resort echoes this fortified architecture, placing guests in modern ramparts inspired by the commanding indigenous citadels and re-imagined with sophisticated contemporary interiors. A total of 115 luxury rooms and pool villas overlook either the dramatic canyon or tranquil gardens and a spa-like bathroom complete with a rain shower. Luxury villas grant guests an intimate escape each with personal villa host services and a private infinity pool overlooking the cliffs or hidden in an exotic garden. Each villa features state-of-the-art interactive LED IPTVs and spacious walk-in dressing areas, all adding to a sense of sublime luxury. A selection of six dining venues to choose from, Al Qalaa a fine dining Arabian grill concept, Bella Vista a Roman inspired restaurant overlooking the grand canyon, Al Maisan all day dining serving world classics and cooking classes or Al Baha the café deli situated in the open air courtyard. Celebrate on Diana’s Point platform with a unique private dining experience overlooking the canyons. A cliff-edge infinity pool, two Jacuzzis, children’s pool, state-of-the-art Fitness Centre and tennis court are available to enjoy.

Hotel's Favorite
We just spent 3 great nights there. The cliff pool villa is really great. The view is amazing, the room is nice, the bathroom is nice. The swimming pool temperature is great, heated, and that’s perfect. The housekeeping was perfect, the man who did our villa was extremely polite, nice and helpful! Localisation is great. Oriental restaurant was amazing, the chuwa is just delicious. Staff in the restaurant was great. The Massages were really nice. Therapist were very good. Tours that you can do via the hotel are nice (we did nizwa tour it was really nice and the guides who work with Anantara are great). Transfer to go to the airport is nice. Most of the staff was really nice especially Kamal in room dining who was great. Breakfast was good and with plenty of choice. I want to specially thanks Leo who is a particularly great manager and did everything to make us happy during our stay! He enhanced our stay and really gave us to go more in Anantara hotels!

Wonderful hotel. Great location and views. Some star service from a few individuals (Raju) but also an unsophisticated level of service generally( maybe because of pandemic) Never saw a manager for instance. However very very expensive wine list that didn’t reflect the level of wine on the list. Food good too but could do with a sharper more sophisticated level of service to reflect the prices of the room and food and beverage.

Dear SafariLou, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your detailed review with us. We are delighted to learn that you enjoyed the spectacular location of our resort, the hotel facility as well as your room. However, it saddens us that despite our efforts you left feeling disappointed with some aspects of your stay and that we have failed to deliver the high levels of service that you have come to expect from us. Please rest assured that we have taken good note of your constructive comments and we have shared them with the concerned departments to take the necessary corrective action. We take your feedback very seriously and I sincerely regret the shortfalls you experienced, and any frustration caused as a result. With regards to your comment on the pricing, we do feel that they are fair and in line with the current market trend considering the implementation of new VAT and other government taxes; however, we will continue to evaluate the value proposals of our offerings and see opportunity where we can improve in this area. Nonetheless, we hope that you will keep some positive memories of your experience as it will be a pleasure to welcome you again. With warm regards, Maren Kühl General Manager

We spent 4 days 3 nights in Anantara Cliff Pool Villa and it was perfect. The private pool and deck were large enough for us to spend most of our time outside enjoying the spectacular mountain view which changes throughout the day as the sun moves, the privacy, the peaceful silence, and the nice weather. In fact, we didn't use the living room at all. The House keeping team did a wonderful job at keeping our villa clean. One minor discomfort is the many splinters on the wooden deck. What made our visit special was the staff who were very professional and hospitable. Our villa host, Sahan, was very helpful 24/7. The manager at Bella Vista restaurant, Mohammad, who went out of his way to help and accommodate our needs, was exceptionally attentive and friendly, as well as our servers, June and Inka. Thank you. We joined two activities at the resort. The 3 Village Walk was nice and enjoyable. The highlight for us, however, was the Wall Activity with Maher. It was exhilarating and so much fun. Highly recommend. The Management team was also very helpful and understanding as we had to postponed our trip for over 2 years due to the pandemic. We really appreciate the late check-out which really made the difference as our flight was late in the evening. Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay at Ananatara Al Jabal Al Akdar. Definitely one of the memorable trips in a long time.

We visited this resort for four nights mid May. The drive from Muscat was over two hours but through incredible rocky scenery. The location of the hotel did not disappoint us sitting on a mountain edge with breathtaking views. We were given the option to upgrade to a villa with plunge pool and certainly this made the holiday as we could enjoy our own pool overlooking the canyon. The cool breeze was such a welcoming change from the Muscat humidity. There was a choice of three restaurants in the complex and a snack bar/coffee shop. We enjoyed the food and ambiance perhaps the dependence on Q R codes and a difficult app was a bit annoying for us older generation! Our highlight was the activity centre and meeting Mahar, Lotfi and Hussain. With Lotfi we experienced the most amazing canyon hike through the canyon, swimming in the Wadi pools and then climbing out. Lotfi was the most patient and helpful guide as we scrambled over the rocks. At one rubbly section high up Lotfi was so attentive as he guided ,reassured and helped me traverse across the rough patches. The hike was incredible. Following day we did the most informative and interesting village walk with Mahar . What made this walk so fascinating was that Mahar was born in one of the villages and we visited his home , had coffee and met his elderly father. The old way of farming life was explained in detail and was such an informative two hour gentle walk. Then on my 65th birthday we did the Ultimate Jabal Activity Wall which included rock climbing around the edge of the mountain and zip lining. This was a challenge I had set for myself before visiting the resort but was not sure if I could succeed. Mahar with his calm and reassuring voice guided me across the most terrifying but exhilarating climb. I cannot praise Mahar or Hussain enough for their guidance and making this activity one of the most thrilling experiences ever. We so enjoyed our visit to Anantara - the location, the rooms, the food all were excellent but for us the Activity Centre, Mahar and his wonderful team were just outstanding and made our trip. Thank you guys!

We booked this hotel while on a 6 day tour through Oman. We stayed for 2 nights and would have loved to stay for longer. Amazing setting, beautiful view of the canyon. The hotel grounds are just gorgeous, the staff so friendly and welcoming. Due to Ramadan it was not very busy which made it even more relaxing.

Dear Anantara Al Jabal Al Alkhdar Resort Team! We are fascinated by your hotel. It ‘s wonderful. Our vacation was very good, we enjoyed it. The Design of the hotel outside and inside was amazing. There is a very luxury hotel Service. Our room was cleaned every day twice like it was our first entry. We enjoyed our holidays!!! The cliff pool villa was very nice with an amazing breath taking view. I really liked the water temperature which was warm and the weather at the night was cold, the pool was very clean, bathrooms two. Why do we feel this way? There is only one reason!!! Your employees looked very well after us!!! Our very very special thanks goes to Mr.Sahan Mendis. He was very helpful, kind, friendly, informative. He read all our wishes from our eyes before we said anything. He is a very competent employee who is passionate about his job. He is very solution oriented. It was an unforgettable vacation, and it will certainly not be the last time that we will visit your hotel. I can only recommend you the Anantara Resort if you want to experience an unforgettable holiday!!! We will visit your hotel again shortly. Thank you, we will miss to stay there. Best wishes Mohammad Alkhayyat

When we came here, we really felt very relaxed from the first minute on! We arrived by our guide and the unloaded the whole car sat us down with a cup of tee, which is very sweet and some dates. While we were sitting there they managed the whole registration process. When we arrived at our rooms, the luggage was already there and they came again and asked if we needed anything! We spent the first day in the resort at the pool, because we had an overnight flight! The lifeguard and hotel personnel was super friendly, food was great. I can definitely reccomend not only the great views, hikes and food to everyone, who's going to Oman but also the great resort. BTW one of the highest resort in the World!! Looking forward to coming again, this was not the last time there for sure!
