Located in the dramatic mountainous region of Al Jabal Akhdar, one of Oman’s most spectacular and undiscovered areas, the new Alila Jabal Akhdar resort provides absolute peace and tranquillity.


Just a 2.5-hour drive from Muscat, Alila Jabal Akhdar is perched on a mountainside overlooking a stunning gorge with sensational views of the Al Hajar Mountains.

The new resort features Oman prominently in all aspects – from its architecture and designed interiors, to the ‘Islamic Mediterranean’ cuisine at the cliff-side restaurant, where juniper and rose are used both decoratively and infused in the menu.

The interiors are inspired by the fragrant pink roses that blanket the mountainside in springtime, and each of the resort’s 78 Suites and two Jabal Villas – named Jowz and Rummanah after the walnuts and pomegranates found in the region – reflects a modern interpretation of Omani tradition and history.

Treatments at Spa Alila incorporate local ingredients, including rose water, fresh pomegranates, and other fruits for which the area is renowned.

A haven for nature lovers and the adventurous, guests at the Alila Jabal Akhdar can benefit from specially crafted ‘Alila Experiences’, encouraging a discovery of the region and connecting guests with authentic destination experiences – from private palm-shadowed picnics to sensational starlit suppers.
