Alila jabal Akhdar
Philosophy & sustainability
At Alila Jabal Akhdar, you are well placed to explore one of the most fascinating regions in the world, engage in an endless variety of activities, and experience the warm hospitality of the Omani people.
Located in the central section of the Al Hajar Mountains, Alila Jabal Akhdar offers a gateway to the area’s incredible history, culture and nature. This rugged, mountainous region is one of Oman’s most compelling tourist destinations thanks to stunning landscapes that include Jebel Shams, Oman’s highest mountain, and Jabal Akhdar, meaning the "Green Mountain” in Arabic, considered the fruit bowl of Oman.
Inspired by ancient forts, traditional Omani construction techniques using local stones are combined with contemporary architecture to create a uniquely relaxing environment, from the pool to the spacious suites that look out to mesmerising views of the cliff and mountains.
Juniper Restaurant. Named after the juniper trees that grow in the highlands of Oman, Juniper Restaurant satisfies all your culinary cravings, from breakfast through to dinner. As you feast your eyes on the mountain horizon, savour an international menu inspired by the golden age of Arabic cuisine, influenced by trade routes that stretched from the Middle East to the Mediterranean region.
SPA & Wellness
Featuring seven treatment and changing rooms, steam, and a jacuzzis, Spa Alila at our Oman spa resort is a peaceful sanctuary dedicated to pampering you from head to toe, restoring a sense of total well-being. Step back in time in the steam room, the air filled with a mist of heady, earthy and cleansing oils, grounded in frankincense and juniper berry, reminiscent of ancient Oman.
World of Rocks - Geology talks & tour. Oman’s ancient and unique landscapes offer a geological experience matched by few places on earth. A point of interest for professional geologists, the spectacular rock formations which fill every corner of the Jabal Akhdar Mountains reveal millions of years of complex geological processes, often with textbook clarity.
Castles and Forts – Jabreen & Bahla. Castles and forts are among Oman’s most distinctive cultural landmarks. Visit the town of Jabreen, home to Jabreen Castle, built-in 1670 as a beautiful palace for the Imam and his family, showcasing authentic Omani craftsmanship.
