Whisk yourself away for a luxury holiday in Oman, perhaps with that special someone or with your family. Oman’s history stretches right back to the Stone Age with museums, forts and palaces to explore throughout the area. You’ll experience a rich culture and fascinating heritage, and when you want a break from the attractions you can enjoy the secluded beauty of the Wahiba Sands, with dunes that stretch for miles and miles.
Cities in Oman include the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bahla, and the capital city of Muscat. Other landmarks include the Hajar Mountains, and Masirah Island which is a serene paradise where you’ll be able to lie back, soak up the sun and possibly spot some sea turtles.
Extensive sands, sublime islands, historic landmarks and modern attractions make for a varied and exciting holiday. You can spend one day exploring a rugged desert landscape and the next staring into colourful waters in the Omani Aquarium. The grand Royal Opera House Muscat is a venue that you won’t want to miss, whether you’re looking from the outside or watching a performance within.
For shopping, the bustling souqs and markets are favourite destinations. Mutrah Souq is a sheltered market that people travel from miles around to visit, whilst the Nizwa Souq is another popular choice and a favourite with those looking for handcrafted silverware or for fresh fruit and vegetables.
Oman holidays are opportunities to immerse yourself completely in Omani culture and history, or to enjoy natural beauty spots such as Jebel Akhdar and the Mountain of the Sun, the highest point in Oman. From a cultural tour of the city of Muscat to soaking in the sun on pristine white beaches, Oman has a lot to offer.
Sightseeing – Oman’s forts and palaces are some of the most popular tourist attractions and include Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, the Al Alam Palace and the Bala Fort.
Educational – During your visit to Oman, you’ll be able to learn about the rich history of the country in museums that include the Sultan’s Armed Forces Museum, the Muscat Gate Museum and the Museum of Omani Heritage. The Oman National History Museum is a favourite for families, with lots for children to appreciate and enjoy.
Adventure – As well as touring the deserts, possibly in an air conditioned 4×4, you’ll be able to climb Oman’s mountains or explore the Al-Hoota Caves – you can ride in by train, and explore the caves themselves on a walking tour.
Refreshing – The lush green plantations of Oman contrast dramatically with the deserts. Papayas, coconuts and bananas grow in the plantations of Salalah, and as you walk you’ll be able to stop at the many fruit stands to sample the freshest produce.
Explore – Discover the Musandam peninsula, a beautiful region with activities including diving, snorkelling and cruising the fjords. Why not experience an Arabian night with a night under the stars at a Bedouin camp.
