We had a great stay in December. Memorable location and staff went out of their way to look after us. We enjoyed the calm and relaxed atmosphere. Highlights were a guided walk with Ahmed and wall climb with Sulaiman. Fantastic!
This was one the most memorable stay if not the most memorable in Oman! One of the kinds views. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, the staff so welcoming, helpful and very knowledgeable of the region. We loved it so much we extended our stay. An absolute must if you are in the country and the region. Eventhough we stayed during the low season there is still plenty to do and experience in the resort and around. The spa was fantastic and I would highly recommend their seasonal pomegranate experience.
The resort is outstanding. Rooms are incredibly clean and comfortable for kids staycation. I would recommend to come here in April thence January, because it’s pretty cold, especially when you are with kids. I like the service. And a big thanks to the beautiful lady in Italian restaurant from Kazakhstan, who was patiently took care of our family and gave an attention to my baby!
This is a top class place. The staff are hugely eager to please. Efficiency and charm are their watchwords. Our room with a canyon view was spacious and very comfortable with a HUGE bed. Breakfast, apart from a disappointing hot buffet (although the creamy scrambled egg was exceptional) was great...plenty of tasty fresh fruit, meats including smoked salmon, and very good falafel...loads of choice. Evening meals are hideously expensive, but we did have a very special meal at the Bella Vista...fabulous beef and tuna and an outstanding Villa Antinori white wine. Only six years old, the hotel's internal layout and gardens are gorgeous, belying the fortress like outside appearance. Spectacular views down the canyon, very good spa treatment (notably the rose revitalising one, which aided rapid recovery from our red-eye flight) and we loved our village walk with Lotfi. Yes, it's pricey, but it is a huge treat and worth every penny. One of us had a birthday during our stay and they made a huge fuss of us, which we really appreciated.…
This hotel is a class act with excellent service, great facilities. Definitely worth going for a canyon view room. There are a number of restaurants which are pretty expensive, but good quality. If you get fed up with the prices, there's a pretty good Iranian restaurant 5 minutes along the road.
The staying in hotels was nice experience, with good welcoming and good rooms with very rich breakfast, I enjoyed the staying, but it was so expensive, I enjoyed the variety of trees in the garden, it was amazing
Honestly been there twice because the staff make me feel right at home. This resort has the sweetest most insightful tour guides I’ve ever met. Maher, Hassan, Hussain and lotfi honestly made this trip 10x better. For sure I will be coming back again soon.
We stayed at the Anantara Al Jabal al Akhdar for a special long weekend in January 2023. We chose the hotel because of previous great experiences at Anantara properties in Asia and because the location on the mountain plateau seemed to provide unique experiences. We arrived with high expectations on brand and location, and they were truly exceeded. From warm welcome at the start and throughout the stay, service, accommodation, activities, and accommodation were top notch. The private pool villas are amazing with probably the biggest bath tub I have ever seen in a hotel and a heated pool that is of decent size so you can actually have a swim. The layout is clever, so it separated the living, sleeping and outside areas to provide different zones for different moods. In the public areas, we loved the courtyard and the infinity pool that overlooks the cliffs with one of the most amazing views imaginable. Unfortunately, the highlands were going through a bit of a cold spell during our visit (which I never thought possible on the Arabian peninsula), so we skipped outdoor starlight drinks or dinners and instead opted for the equally stunning interiors of the Al Qalaa restaurant, Al Baha cafe and Al Burj bar. Culinary highlights were the afternoon tea and the seafood sharing menu which were delightfully presented, exceptionally executed and very good value for money. The secret “stars” of the resort, however, are the spa and the activities centre. The spa is truly magnificent, where you can indulge in the jacuzzi and steam room before your treatment. We had the Rose Ritual which genuinely left us re-energized. Anantara generally comes of a phantastic spa concept in their resorts, however the Al Jabal al Akhdar takes it to the next level. Also, the activities centre offers some experiences which are unlike anything I have ever seen in a hotel. Particularly the via ferrata climbing experience is spectacular if you are up for it and are open to push your boundaries. It may seem daunting at first, but with the experienced guides, you’ll finish the tour wanting to do it again! Throughout our stay we felt very well taken care of, like family remembers, and our special occasion was wonderfully underscored by nice touches at every step. Special shout out to Sahan for the most amazing welcome (thanks again!) and his attention throughout our stay and also to Sulaiman for his confident guidance on the via ferrata. Also thanks to the teams at Al Qalaa and Al Maisan for their care and attention.…
