The Luxury Travel Bible - THE MOUNTAIN RETREAT: Alila Jabal Akhdar, Oman

THE MOUNTAIN RETREAT: Alila Jabal Akhdar, Oman
Opening  in the first quarter 2014. Alila Jabal Akhdar will mix rugged landscape with Alila luxury; a combustible combination.  A hot new destination? This one's scorching.  Located in the central section of the Al Hajar Mountains, overlooking a dramatic gorge the resort is at the top of our wish list. Jabal Akhdar means 'The Green Mountain' in Arabic, and the resort sits in the wild heart of the mountains range, in one of Oman's most spectacular areas. Set 2000 metres above sea level, away from the desert heat, Alila Jabal Akhdar   perches like a hunting falcon on the edge of the abyss. All around the magnificent landscape glows pink and gold. This is an area of untouched natural beauty and Alila are the first to explore.

In feel the resort reminds us a little of Six Senses Muscat but this resort is over 150 kilometres from Muscat airport.
The architecture looks as if it will be as interesting as some of Alila's other gems (the much-awarded Alila Uluwatu Bali comes to mind. A minimalist style blends the traditional elements of Omani construction techniques with locally inspired contemporary architecture. Inside all is warm, ethnic fabrics and colours. Outdoor pools hug the cliff edge and views of the rocks and mountains.
