On Thursday 8 May 2014 Oman’s newest five-star hotel – Alila Jabal Akhdar – will open to offer an exciting new accommodation option on Corinthian Travel’s private Oman holidays. The all-suite Alila Jebel Akhdar is the first luxury hotel built in the stunningly scenic interior of the Sultanate.

Jabal Akhdar, meaning ‘The Green Mountain’ in Arabic, is within the Al Hajar mountain range, one of Oman’s most spectacular regions, and is perched 2,000 metres above sea level. Overlooking a dramatic gorge, the Alila Jabal Akhdar Hotel is an oasis of luxury in interior Oman and is surrounded by the  awe-inspiring views of the Al Hajar Mountains.  The hotel is just under a three hour drive from Muscat and is an ideal base from which to explore the region’s magnificent landscape of rugged, untouched beauty, picturesque stone-built villages, and scenic walking trails – including one of Corinthian Travel’s all time favourite trails – the two hour long “Four Villages Walk”. Additional nearby attractions include the cultural centre of Nizwa (one hour) with its imposing fort, lively souk and weekly cattle auction, and the beautiful oasis and mudbrick village of Birkat Al Mawz (45 minutes).

The architecture of the Alila Jabal Akhdar combines a minimalist style with colourful local touches and has been designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding beauty of the mountains. Accommodation is in 78 suites, 6 Loft suites and 2 Jabal villas (with private pool). In room décor is Omani inspired with a contemporary twist. Mountain, Horizon and Ridge View suites are all very generously sized at 52 sqm in area, while Jabal Terrace and Loft Suites are double that, and the Jabal villas an expansive 361 sqm.
