Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort

Uniquely situated on the Saiq Plateau on Oman’s fabled Green Mountain in the Al Hajar Mountains, Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort is perched 2,000 metres above sea level on the curving rim of a great canyon. The Middle East’s highest five-star resort is your gateway to Oman’s ancient forts, souk market discoveries, remote agricultural villages and an impressive topography of mountain and valley scenery. An ideal choice of location for those in search of a Nizwa hotel, this extraordinary destination is just a 30-minute drive from the ancient city of Nizwa – renowned for centuries as the ‘Pearl of Islam’ and recently given the prestigious title of ‘The Capital of Islamic Culture’ for 2015.
