Lakes & Mountains
As the sun rises, the drama unfolds with golden beams cascading over astonishing peaks and down to gorges below. Welcome to Oman's backbone or 'Grand Canyon', the mighty Al Hajar Mountain range formed from colliding tectonic plates 80-million years ago. Escorted tours include cultural visits to sleepy mountain settlements and trips to the summit of Jabal Shams, soaring 3,900 metres above sea level. Climbing enthusiasts can tackle the peaks on foot, using harnesses and ropes or via the steel cable, alongside experienced mountain instructors.
Pop the question on a canyon edge, celebrating your engagement with drinks around a fire, stars twinkling overhead - the skies are stunningly illuminated at night. Retreat to the mountains for sunrise coffee or a gourmet picnic, or treat your loved one to an unforgettable experience of magnetic food and views to match with 'Dining by Design' - offering connoisseur menus in incredible settings. Embark on a guided hike, exploring river valleys littered with impressive rock formations, caves and inky-black pools, or simply stay at the resort and share a romantic spa journey for two.

Expect to be pampered at the resort's world-class spa, comprising hammam suites, sumptuous treatment rooms, a beauty salon, salt steam rooms, aroma saunas, rain showers, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas and a health station serving homemade snacks and teas.
