  • Overview

    Oman’s enduring appeal is an absence of man-made attractions and an abundance of natural ones. Its long coastline is pristine, its mountains spectacular, its riverbeds wind-blown, and its desert interior entrancing. In contrast to near neighbours, this low-rise, traditional Sultanate emphasises heritage, and accentuates its ancient sense of identity. The Omani people have retained the innate hospitability, conviviality and friendliness of their Bedouin ancestors and are justifiably delighted by their kingdom’s scenic beauty. For a truly authentic taste of Arabia, Oman is hard to beat.

    Enjoying a supremely scenic location between mountains and ocean is Muscat, the Omani capital, a delightful city featuring ancient forts, excellent museums, opera house and delightful flower-filled parks. The city sets itself apart from neighbouring capitals: low-rise buildings reflect the traditions, form and decorations of Arabic architecture. Oman is a conservative country, proud of its heritage, and visitors should display decorum in dress and manner.

    Two smaller territories of Oman, one surrounded completely by the land of the United Arab Emirates, the other a peninsula of the Persian Gulf which borders the United Arab Emirates, are Madha and Musandam. Mahda is a small circle of land with fewer than three thousand inhabitants. Musandam is set between the craggy Al Hajar Mountains and the Persian Gulf’s Straits of Hormuz.

    By land, Musandam’s Zighy Bay is accessible by four-wheel drive vehicles only and the journey from Dubai airport takes around two hours. The drive down from the hilltop overlooking the bay is nothing short of spectacular. To make something of an entrance guests may like to take a tandem paraglide flight to the resort, or arrive from a nearby port by speedboat. Six Senses Zighy Bay is as idyllic as it is secluded. This supremely luxurious accommodation features private plunge pools, outdoor showers and butlers. There’s an outstanding spa with an amazing range of wellness programmes, alongside activities such as yoga, diving, snorkelling and trekking.

    When to Travel

    Thanks to superb sunshine and minimal amounts of rain, Oman attract visitors on a year round basis. Between October and March temperatures remain warm and pleasant. Average maximum temperatures of twenty-five degrees or more are perfect for those looking to escape the dreariness of northern Europe’s winters.
