THE three-The Three Bedroom Royal Mountain Villa of Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort in Oman is plush, exclusive and offers stunning views of the canyon. Coveted by royalty, celebrities and the crème de la crème of the world, this two-storeyed villa comes equipped with a private garage for two cars and a private entrance with staff quarters.
The personal villa host guides guests through the villa’s three spacious bedrooms, a grand living area, walk-in dressing room, private temperature-controlled infinity pool complete with deck and dining and a Jacuzzi from which to watch sunsets. Customising dinner with a personal chef who curates a menu fit for connoisseurs and relishing it at Diana’s Point which is a platform at the edge of the canyon where Late Princess Diana and Prince Charles once stood, is what makes Anantara the Omani jewel of Al Jabal Al Akhdar. You can sip wine and savour Italian cuisine at the award-winning Bella Vista restaurant. If the serenity of Al Jabal Al Akhdar or the green mountain awakens your inner culinary skills of effortlessly cooking decadent Omani dishes, Anantara arranges for a local chef who happily shares his kitchen secrets and age-old recipes. The session is interactive, interesting and packs in a flavourful healthy twist.
Adventure enthusiasts can try their hand (and feet) climbing the ultimate Jabal activity wall traversing along craggy cliffs breathing pure mountain air or settle for a luxurious serene mountain picnic amidst juniper trees and the chirping of birds. The night sky beckons for movie watching under its twinkling stars. Watch the movie on the big screen next to the canyon for some real action while eating barbeque. Or give a shot to being an astronomer with stargazing. Can you spot a constellation? Or maybe it’s a galaxy that is waiting to be discovered. You’ll agree that the mountains make for an exciting, heart pumping, cardio workout where you can cycle away your blues. Need motivation and company? Look no further than a bike buddy that Anantara will organise.
How about sunrise yoga in the fresh, crisp mountain air or a natural detox with Bikram yoga in the hammam at the spa? While there, relax after a royal hammam. Or pamper yourself with signature therapies incorporating indigenous roses and pomegranates which are locally cultivated.
The hotel, the highest 5-star resort in the middle east, sits 6,500 fit above sea level on the curving rim of a great canyon, affording guests breathtaking views of the cliffs and the gorge below.
The drive from Muscat to the property takes at the most 2 hours
